What else would we expect from an event called the Miss Universe Extravaganza? Last November 7, fans, the press, and not one, but seven titleholders gathered in Bangkok, Thailand to officially greenlight the 71st edition of the pageant, which will be the first one under the ownership of Thai billionaire and media tycoon Anne Jakrajutatip.
Among the attendees was our very own Catriona Gray. The 28-year-old graced the affair donning an ensemble that just screams Filipino pride, but, of course, with a modern twist.
LOOK: Catriona Gray's Colorful Terno Dress at Miss Universe Extravaganza 2022
Her trusted stylists, Justine Aliman and Patrick Henry, had the Albay beauty in a custom made Jearson Demavivas Filipiniana mini dress. The main body of the frock showed off vibrant Filipino textiles and patterns, with a hot pink butterfly sleeve on one side, and an off-shoulder indigo sleeve on the other. The sleeves extended into ribbons of fabric that wrapped around the dress, and merged into a flowy train.
International hairstylist Alex Andul took care of Catriona's locks, styling them in slight waves that were reminiscient of her winning hairstyle during Miss Universe 2018. With warm eyeshadow and a baby pink lippie on, she was the image of a true Filipino beauty.
We're simply in love with this look, Catriona!
