It was the most beautiful day in the Universe yesterday as another Filipina was yet again proclaimed the queen of the Universe 💕🇵🇭

Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray was able to clinched the 67th Miss Universe title and the fourth crown for the Philippines besting 93 delegates across the globe.

All throughout her journey, Catriona have shown to the world the beauty of the Philippines most especially its indigenous fabrics and patriotic designs through her OOTDs! One of the most talked-about piece since her Binibining Pilipinas days was her Three Stars and the Sun earcuff and our newly crowned Miss Univese together with Tessera Jewelry just elevated the patriotic earcuff and added a pair of golden south sea pearls studded with diamonds and rubies! Wow! How’s that for a queen?!

Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray for Preview.PH May 2018

Here’s my favorite and the reigning Miss Universe Philippines Catriona Gray gracing the digital cover of  Preview.PH’s May 2018 edition.

It has only been a month and a half since Catriona Gray was crowned Binibining Pilipinas-Universe but the internet is already abuzz with her fighting chance at this year’s Miss Universe pageant. Perhaps a fourth crown for the country at pageantdom’s most prestigious competition is all too soon—we had just won in 2015—but we’re not about to complain. Catriona, after all, goes far deeper than the aforementioned hype that surrounds her these days. Her dedication should not come as a surprise to anyone who’s seen her work at close range way before she became a full-fledged beauty queen. (s)

Janine Tugonon’s Glamour Shot / Fadil Shot for Miss Universe 2012

Here’s Miss Universe-Philippines’ Janine Tugonon looking so fierce and hot in her Miss Universe glamor shot also known as her “Fadil Shot” shot by the Miss Universe Organization’s official photographer Fadil Berisha. This in my opinion is one of the best glam shots this edition! It can rival Venus Raj’s 2010 Fadil shot but we all know no one can topped Queen V. 🙂 Things are looking good for Janine based on her candid and official pictures. I’m hoping that these would translate into the prelims and the finals! Go Janine!
