The amount of culture and history embedded in Catriona Gray's national costume is staggeringly impressive enough to educate a whole nation, and the National Historical Commission of the Philippines seems to think so, too. That said, it seems Filipinos will have a chance to see the culturally amalgamated masterpiece in person soon.

Catriona revealed the exciting news via Instagram story with a screenshot of the invitation from the National Quincentennial Commitee, in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of three key historical national events. That being the Circumnavigation of the World, the Introduction of Christianity to the Philippines, and the Victory at Mactan.
