CINDERELLA “CINDY” FAYE OBENITA from Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental wears the mythical giant goldfish-inspired “Belleza del Oro” in the Binibining Pilipinas 2021 National Costume Presentation today. Let us support her by voting her as Best in National Costume.
Belleza del Oro is designed by Odelon Simpao. Here’s a brief background on the design.
Legend has it that Cagayan de Oro is resting on the back of a giant goldfish, with its head right under the Cathedral. This is the mythical inspiration of my national costume, a fitting tribute to the Oro, as a gentle creature. On top of the piece is a crown, a homage to Birhen sa Kota who protected the city from invading Moros.
We call this costume Belleza del Oro, beauty of gold.
