Gwendolyn Ruais is Miss Word Philippines 2011 winner

Gwendolyn Ruais won Miss World Philippines 2011 during the coronation night held Sunday, September 18, 2011, at the PICC.

Gwendolyn Ruais becomes the first ever Filipina to win such pageant, whose winner will be the Philippines' bet to the Miss World 2011 beauty pageant to be held in London this November.

Twenty (25) candidates competed in the 1st Miss World Philippines pageant, which was aired via GMA 7 and was hosted by Dingdong Dantes, Carla Abellana and Isabelle Daza.

At 5'11, Gwendolyn, who's half-French, was the tallest candidate in the pageant and is now the tallest "Miss Philippines" in recent years.

She's 21 years old and measures (wow!) 36-26-36.

During the 2010 Binibining Pilipinas pageant, it was a big disappointment when Gwendolyn settled only as a Top 10 semi-finalist and wasn't secured with any of the 3 major titles.

Mykiru listed Gwendolyn then as its favorite to win the Binibining Pilipinas-World crown, but that didn't happen in 2010, instead it happened a year later when she joined Miss World Philippines 2011 and easily won the title.

Gwendolyn also competed in the 2010 Asian Super Model competition held in China, and won the Best in Catwalk award.
