Philippines contestant Catriona Gray named Miss Universe

Miss Universe Catriona Gray

The 24-year-old singer and model was seen in a sparkling red dress, which was inspired by the volcano in the Philippines.

CELEBRATE. Catriona Gray, Miss Philippines 2018 on stage during the National Costume Show. In 2016, she joined the Miss World Philippines pageant.

"Philippines, what an awesome honor it has been to carry your name across my chest and to embody you in all aspects".

To the disappointment of the Venezuelan and South African candidates, who also made it to the Top 3, 24-year-old Catriona managed to charm the judging panel, which this year for the first time boasted an all-female lineup.

Albayalde expressed concern over the possible oversupply of marijuana in the country if it is allowed for medical use.

She beat Miss South Africa and Miss Venezuela in the top three to win this prestigious title.

Gray is known to spontaneously burst into song, which is most likely due to her love of the arts and her Master Certificate in Music Theory.

Steve Harvey hosted the ceremonies for the third straight year, with Grammy-winning RnB artist Ne-Yo performing. The prominent and iconic Mayon Volcano is the penultimate inspiration for this creation.

Ms Chudasama, 22, who is from Mumbai, was among the 94 contestants who competed for the crown at the 67th Miss Universe pageant at a glitzy finale on Sunday. Havey notoriously announced the wrong victor by mistake and issuing an apology during the 2015 Miss Universe live broadcast.

In 2015, Harvey made a big error in front of a global television audience at the Miss Universe pageant, when he misread his cue card and announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez as the victor. But as early as now, she's managed to unite Filipinos and will always be their queen - crown or no crown. Because I think if people will argue, then what about alcohol and cigarettes?

"Can you imagine? Francesca (Miss Australia) said that would be so isolating and I said yes and just confusing all the time", Summers said. "These are the moments that matter most to me".

The spokesman also said that the victory of Gray set the bar high in Filipina empowerment and would push them to hold their place in the world.
