Miss Philippines’ Catriona Gray’s National Costume for Miss Universe 2018 – #BuongPilipinas

I’ve been MIA during the start of the Miss Universe proper in Bangkok because I’m attending some personal issues but now that I’ve found some time to actually post some updates here, let me start with yesterday’s National Costume show.

Miss Universe Philippines Catriona Gray’s national costume was one of the most anticipated costumes of any Philippine delegate to ever compete in the pageant as well as any delegates in this year’s edition. The costume apresented to the public last night in Pattaya garnered polarizing reception from the different spectrum of social media.

Her elaborate costume with a touch of the #BuongPilipinas or the whole Philippines is something that has never been seen from a Philippine delegate in the past editions or any international beauty pageants that usually settles for a single-themed outfits.

This intricately designed ensemble is called “LuzViMinda” in a collaboration of different designers with Catriona’s inputs too! Jojo Bragais designed and provided the thigh-high boots and the beautiful headress representating Mindanao, Eric Quiwa for the Parol representing Luzon and Jearson Demavivas who spearheaded the creation of this costume and was also responsible for Catriona’s winning national costume during the Binibining Pilipinas earlier this year worked on the Pintados body representing the Visayas region.

The costume may have not garnered universal acclaim but for a delegate to represent the country with such pride in our culture and heritage is achievement enough and is already a winner in my book!

In the midst of sociopolitical divisiveness in the Philippines, Catriona Gray and her team made me realized that outside of this spectrum, there’s a lot to be proud of our country, our people and our history.

Maraming Salamat!

Catriona Gray’s Profile on the Miss Universe Website!

The Miss Universe website have started populating the profiles of this year’s Miss Universe contestants. One of the considered frontrunners this year, our very own Catriona Gray’s profile is already up and this is what it says about her.

“Catriona Elisa Gray is know to spontaneously burst out into song which is most likely the fault of her love of the arts and her Master Certificate in Music Theory. A great travel buddy and definitely not a “scaredy cat”, Catriona is always game for heart racing adventures. Zipline anyone? This model is openly passionate about her love for Filipino dishes including adobo, balut, and the sweetest mangoes in the world. Catriona is an HIV/AIDS advocate at Love Yourself PH, and volunteers as a Teacher’s Assistant to the students of Young Focus NGO. Catriona hopes to make her country proud at this year’s Miss Universe competition.”

Here, you can read a very interesting Ms. Gray discussing life after becoming the Miss Universe Philippines and her preparations for the upcoming Miss Universe pageant.

A bit of snippet from the interview conducted by Celina Bonga.

Now with four months left until the big day, the 24-year-old is heavily involved in the creative process that happens behind all the glitz and glamour. We learned that the show stopping ear cuff she wore on the crowning night of Binibining Pilipinas was actually her idea. Like a true queen, she has taken full control of her pageant preparations from choosing the team she works with to personally designing her gowns. She explains, “I really wanted to be involved. I told my team, ‘I hope you don’t mind me pitching in my ideas.’ I’m not saying that I have the best taste in the world, but let me share my ideas. I was crazy hands-on about it. I even had PowerPoints!”

Best of luck, Catriona!

Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters is Ready for Las Vegas!

Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters is all set to conquer the Universe as she donned a classy black ensemble during her airport send-off bound to Las Vegas, Nevada, USA where the 66th edition of the Miss Universe Pageant will be held.

Las Vegas is where our delegates seems to do well. Really well for that matter since this is where Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach won her crown,  where Janine Tugonon almost grabbed our third Miss Universe crown in 2012 and where Venus Raj started the renaissance for the Philippines in the international pageant arena.

And I’ve a good feeling that Rachel will bring her A-game and win that fourth crown for the Philippines! I’m fairly confident about it.
