The Binibining Pilipinas 2022 Grand Coronation Night was held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on July 31, 2022. Pageant fans were excited to see the candidates’ looks at the swimsuit and evening gown competitions, but if there was a ‘fit that instantly caught the audience’s attention, it was Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray’s dashing black ensemble, which she teamed with a massive pair of earrings.
The earrings were actually a collaboration between the beauty queen and handcrafted jewelry brand MJorian, which was inspired by the Pintados tattoos in the Boxer Codex.
“To embody the warrior spirit embodied by all of our 2022 Binibinis!” Catriona wrote on Instagram.
The earrings, which cascaded past Catriona’s collarbones, looked undeniably heavy—and it brought out the funniest reactions from the internet!
One netizen commented that it deserves its own award—Best in National Earrings!
Even Vice Ganda, a known pageant fan, couldn’t help but react to the beauty queen’s massive display of jewelry. “Ang plain e!” The It’s Showtime host joked.
All jokes aside, you looked truly stunning, Catriona!
