Miss Universe 2018 Milik Catriona Gray Dari Filipina
Ratu cantik dari Filipina, Catriona Gray menepati ramalan apabila dinobatkan sebagai Miss Universe 2018.

Catriona mengetepikan saingan dari Venezuela dan Afrika Selatan di peringkat Top 3.

Terdahulu lima peserta yang sememangnya sudah dijangka daripada awal melepasi peringkat Top 5 antaranya Puerto Rico, Vietnam, Filipina, Afrika Selatan dan Venezuela.

Catriona bersaing bersama 94 peserta dari seluruh dunia dan mula ‘berkampung’ di Bangkok, Thailand sejak November lalu.

Untuk rekod, kali terakhir Filipina memenangi gelaran Miss Universe adalah pada penganjuran tahun 2015 menerusi penyertaan Pia Wurtzbach. 

Negara kepulauan di Asia Tenggara itu juga pernah membawa pulang mahkota kemenangan itu pada tahun 1969 (Gloria Diaz) dan pada 1973 (Margarita Moran).

LUZVIMINDA: "Magdiwang. Lumaban. Pagyamanin." πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­βœ¨ LUZON-- MAGDIWANG" (Celebrate): The island group of LUZON is represented by the world-renowned "PAROL/CHRISTMAS LANTERN" from the province of Pampanga with a BRASS BORDER designed and made in Apalit, Pampanga (inspired by designs from the Philippine Baroque Churches that were declared as UNESCO Heritage Sites) At the back of the PAROL is a PAINTING with INSCRIPTION of the lyrics from "LUPANG HINIRANG", the Philippines’ National Anthem written in Baybayin (Ancient Filipino Alphabet) that literally translates to: "Lupang hinirang, Duyan ka ng magiting, Sa manlulupig Di ka pasisiil. Sa dagat at bundok, Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw." The PAINTING also highlighted victories, festivals, events, heroes and national icons with a style inspired by the works of Philippine National Artist Carlos "Botong" Francisco, a native of the Art Capital of the Philippines, Angono, Rizal in Luzon. VISAYAS--LUMABAN" (Fight): The island group of VISAYAS is represented by a body suit with authentic "tattoo designs" embellished with crystals derived from patterns used by the "PINTADOS" who are indigenous peoples found in various islands in this part of the Philippines. The tattoo patterns are authentic and based from the manusript "BOXER CODEX" written in 1590. The tattoos represent an individual’s journey and a public testimony recounting acts of combat, bravery, and strength, that perfectly represents the courageous and resilient Filipino spirit amidst trials we face in this day and age. MINDANAO-- “PAGYAMANIN" (Enrich): The island group of MINDANAO is represented by an authentic "HEADPIECE & BRASS ACCESSORIES" from the province of South Cotabato and customized KNEE-HIGH BOOTS with embroidered designs inspired by different indigenous textile patterns from the southern part of the Philippines, namely: Inaul, Yakan, Maranao, B'laan, Bagobo, Tausug and T'nalak. The woven textiles express a strong belief in "ancestral and natural spirits" and "cultural roots" of indigenous communities that remain well-preserved up to this day. Pilipinas, para sa iyo ang lahat ng ito. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ @missuniverse πŸŽ₯ @benjaminaskinas

IBONG ADARNA πŸ§‘πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ The Blazing Siren by @maktumang My preliminary gown was inspired by the 'Ibong Adarna': a prominent Filipino folklore that is a mythologicalnous bird. Story goes, the Ibong Adarna's enchanting voice can enable complete healing to anyone who hears it. Some artists liken it to the mythological Phoenix where it recurrently regenerates itself by arising amidst a spectacle of flames and candescence. This makes it a fitting symbol of resilience, rising and rebirth. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ”₯ My earrings were designed by me and executed by @tesserajewelry as another ode to the Philippines with the Philippine sun and golden South sea pearls, our national gem. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ Thank you to @maktumang for his amazing craftsmanship and exquisite execution of this gown, to @justine.aliman19 and @ton_lao for styling in @bragaisjojo heels and @tesserajewelry. Thank you to mamang @hairbybrentsales and @jellyeugenio for teaching me to slay my hair and makeup! And to @carlosbuendiajr, the man behind my walk πŸŒ‹ I love you all!!!
