Ladylyn Riva: Who’s that girl?

Last week I wrote about some of the early favorites in this year’s Bb. Pilipinas competition, and while searching for their profiles I came across this photo of one of the candidates I’ve kept reading about.


At first I thought it was Marian Rivera, and it was the same observation of a few other friends who saw it as well. Some also pointed out that she looked like former actress Cristina “Kring Kring” Gonzales. But we were all in agreement that she has one of the prettiest faces in this year’s Binibini.

She is candidate #39 and her name is Ladylyn Riva. The 26-year-old returning Filipina-German candidate hails from Aklan where she earned a nursing degree and worked at the Aklan Mission Hospital for a year.

If she looks quite familiar, it may be because you’ve seen her in one the numerous print ads she has done, or maybe in this very popular music video of Christian Bautista’s Araw, Ulap, Langit.


Finishing college, she says, had been her biggest achievement in life—that is until she started joining beauty pageants.

Raised by her grandparents, it was her lola who urged her to join beauty pageants—a wish she has fulfilled when she joined and reached the semi final rounds of Bb. Pilipinas in 2011 and later when she won Miss Casino Filipino. She joins Bb. Pilipinas again in the hopes of winning the crown for her lola.

Ladylyn says she has learned a lot since she first joined the pageant and believes she will do much better thanks to the training she’s had with the team from Kagandahang Flores.

Her experience has also made her even more confident and determined to win the crown. She believes that with this kind of determination, there is no obstacle that can come between and prevent them from reaching their greatest dream, that of wearing the beauty queen’s crown one day.

She’s been one of the favorites so far and her fans couldn’t wait to see her signature “Dynamite” walk as she walks the stage during the grand coronation night on March 30, 2014.
