Miss Philippines Catriona Gray and her National Costume for Miss Universe 2018:
The following video is Part 1 of the reveal of what Queen Cat will be wearing during the pageant’s National Costume Competition this coming December 10 in Pattaya.
Let us start from the top – Luzon!
And what better way to usher in the festive Holiday Spirit than to have the upper part of her ensemble depict the joyous stargazing #GiantLanterns of Pampanga.
Click on the video by Jolo Luarca (I am teary-eyed just watching) below and watch out for the contribution of the Visayas very soon!
Produced by Jojo Bragais

After spending the last four days in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to attend a Children’s Charity Benefit Ball of the Vietnamese Government and a few days of touring around the city with her gang (composed of Angelica Alita, Jojo Bragais, Jolo Luarca et al), our Queen promptly returned to training mode.
For now, let us watch this video of Cat where she did a 5-minute pageant makeup challenge for Cosmopolitan Philippines.

Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray is uber excited about returning to Thailand for Miss Universe 2018. And how cool is it that her last overseas vacation late last month (sponsored by Air Asia) was in the Land of Smiles where she visited Bangkok and Chiang Mai together with Angelica Alita, Jojo Bragais and Jolo Luarca (who put together the clip).
Cat loves everything about Thailand that when she was there, it showed in the way she embraced the culture and the locals. She made heads turn everywhere and her face has already started to become familiar with a lot of the pageant fans out there.
Watch the one-minute vid now.
Quoted from the latest public message of Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray:
“When the sharpest words wanna cut me down. I’m gonna send a flood gonna drown them out. This is brave, this is bruised, this is who I’m meant to be – this is me.”
Cannot grasp that exactly ONE WEEK AGO these magical moments happened. A huge thank you to the very talented lensmen @jololuarca who has preserved them forever in film. I can’t wait to document our journey to Miss Universe!!!! 😻
To everyone who ever had a dream but was scared to try, afraid to fall…there will be challenges, people who will try and put you down and trip you, there will be risks and moments of doubt…but keep going, keep hustling, stay true to yourself and to the ambition that God placed in your heart. I hope my journey inspires you in whatever you pursue. ✨ Dreams do come true.
“Look out cause here I come. And I’m marching on to the beat I drum. I’m not scared, to be seen I make no apologies… THIS IS ME.”
