On July 16, 2022, Saturday, Binibining Pilipinas just held what many pageant fans will consider their favorite part of the competition: The showcase of national costumes.

The pageant delighted fans with the super creative and out-of-the-box designs that the candidates proudly modeled that evening. We totally didn't see some of them coming!

Here are just a few of the dazzling creations:

Inspired by the half-horse, half-human creature from Philippine folklore, Graciella's tikbalang costume was actually designed by actor-host Paolo Ballesteros. Based on the candidate's IG post, the horse head and butterfly sleeves feature the intertwined branches of the balete tree. The body, meanwhile, was adorned with lace, white pearls, and rhinestones.

Gabrielle's costume—which looks like a grotto image placed upon a pedestal—takes inspiration from the Virgin Mary. Designed by Ken Batino and Jevin Salaysay, the creation is an homage to the Padul-Ong Festival, celebrated every September 8 in Eastern Samar.
