Could you forget Catriona’s strikingly red winning gown by Mak Tumang? Yup, we can’t get it out of our heads either—and it seems like Amanda couldn’t, too! Miss Thailand looks like a goddess in different shades of blue with a silhouette, high slit, and deep neckline—details that are too similar to Catriona’s gown. While the former 2018 Miss Universe’s dress was inspired by the Philippine volcanoes, Miss Thailand’s look came from the beautiful waters in Phuket.
