Out of the 39 contestants, the coveted  crown of Binibining Pilipinas Universe 2014 was awarded to  Mary Jean Lastimosa of  North Cotabato. The  grand coronation night happened at the Araneta Coliseum on Sunday hosted by Kapamilya stars Anne Cutis and Xiam Lim.

Lastimosa joined the pageant thrice already  before finally winning the crown.

The judges selected the top 15 candidates who answered questions given to them as they were called one by one.
In the question-and-answer round, Miss Universe Queen Gabriela Isler askedher,  “What is the greatest advantage of being a woman?”

Lastimosa answered: “The greatest advantage of being a woman is being able to compose herself. Just like here, we’re standing in front of thousands of people, not knowing if you’re going to cheer for us or boo us. But we try to compose ourselves. We keep the emotions and show the beauty that is in us and tonight, thousands of people are standing here, celebrating the beauty of women.”

Meanwhile, the Miss International crown was bagged by  Mary Anne Guidotti, 24 from Taguig City.  Guidotti graduated from  Ateneo de Manila University, and  currently works as a technical assistant of the executive director at the humanitarian organization Community and Family Services International.

Trade and Industry Secretary Gregory Domingo asked Guidotti, “Should you win one of the titles, how would you use your crown to push for your advocacy?”

Giidotti’s response was, “If I win a title, I would use my crown to urge people to adopt their own advocacies. I want people to be passionate about it—something really close to their hearts,” the pageant newbie answered. “Someday, hopefully, I will make an NGO of my own.”
