#MetroStyleWatch: Every Pre-Pageant Look That Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray Nailed So Far
The Miss Universe competition is upon us once again as the most beautiful women across the globe flock to Bangkok, Thailand to take a shot at this year’s crown. Our very own Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray flew to the Land of Smiles a week ago, and, as expected, she’s been repping our country in style as she takes part in various pre-pageant activities.
Wearing creations by homegrown designers made with regionally sourced materials, Catriona pays homage to local fashion as she takes the global stage. With her all-Filipino fashion picks and regal aura, there’s no doubt that our beauty queen is currently turning heads overseas. See all the looks that made it to Catriona’s pre-pageant wardrobe below:
For her send-off to Thailand, Catriona wore an Anthony Ramirez ensemble featuring an emerald-hued bustier top and black high-waist trousers cinched with a gold belt. Those chunky earrings by Via Lim lend a finishing touch to her scene-stealing look.
On her second day, Catriona is a sheer vision in white as she dons a strapless jacquard dress by Noel Crisostomo while carrying an intricately beaded purse featuring a Sampaguita design by Calli.
Still championing all-Filipino threads, the highlight of Catriona’s Day 3 outfit is a T’boli-embroidered skirt by Davao-based label NiñOFRANCO.
Another statement piece from Catriona’s Thailand wardrobe is this denim jacket from LAHI with the word “Kababayan” and an image of a jeepney embroidered on the back.
For her tour around the Royal Palace, Catriona goes for a punch of color with a pink pant suit designed by Erwin Flores.
As she continues to satiate our fashion palate, Catriona serves a ravishing evening look at the Welcome Dinner as she wore a sapphire-colored asymmetrical dress by Louis Pangilinan. She finishes her outfit off with barely-there heels by Jojo Bragais and a Cebu-crafted clutch by Mia Arcenas.
For her media rounds, Catriona charms in a figure-hugging, off-shoulder dress by Jearsond made with T’nalak fabric from South Cotabato. Accessory-wise, our beauty queen opts for another Calli clutch and a classic pair of peep-toe Christian Louboutin heels.
Celebrating “Thai Night,” Catriona stuns in a purple gown made in Thai silk by Asava.
Catriona is all smiles with Ms. Sweden and Ms. Denmark as she spends another day of sightseeing in an all-white coordinating look consisting of a cropped top and a flouncy skirt.
