Janicel Lubina for Bb.Pilipinas 2015.

Being a model or beauty titlist is a craze in Puerto Princesa City, the capital of the province. Lubina also is multi-title holder wayback from Mutya ng Palawan,  Miss Scuba Philippines to Miss Bikini Philippines and her last pageant, Miss World Philippines as the first runner up for Miss World Meagan Young. 

With her almost perfect Filipina beauty, her skills in pasarela, many are predicting that she will nail the title of Bb.Pilipinas Universe 2015. 

In our interview with her, she said that she is focusing on communication skills in terms of training for this year's Binibini. And to qoute her message to all Palawenyo, "Salamat sa suporta, para sa atin ito". Lubina said. 

Janicel is one of Fashionista's royalty of  Palawan beauty queen maker Thom Favila.

Bb.Pilipinas 2015 coronation night is on March 15, 2015 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
