A Closer Look At Catriona Gray’s Miss Universe Finale Look!
In the recently concluded grand finale of Miss Universe pageant, Catriona Gray was crowned as Miss Universe 2018, becoming the fourth woman from Philippines to win the Miss Universe title. Every year after the Miss Universe pageant culminates, we scrutinize the story behind the winning evening gown, but this time it is much more than the designer and the design. Catriona Gray, who has now officially become the fourth Filipino to win the Miss Universe pageant, wore a mesmerizing evening gown by the ace designer, Mak Tumang.
Catriona’s winning evening gown was inspired by the Mayon Volcano in her hometown, Albay, which also explains the popular terminology behind her famous “lava” walk. Her now-iconic earcuff by Tessera Jewelry, which she was also seen donning during the coronation gala of Binibining Pilipinas 2018, is a tribute to the 3 stars and sun in the Philippines flag. Catriona kept her hair side swept to showcase the beautiful ear cuffs.
Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray expressed in the post-pageant press conference that the colour of her finale gown is extra-significant, because her mother beforehand dreamed that she joined and won the Miss Universe competition wearing a red gown.
Truly, the stars aligned in her favour to conquer the universe!
