The designer shared a picture of the replica on Instagram with the caption, “SPOT THE DIFFERENCE
exclusive replica for Madame Tussauds #offtolondon??” He posted a picture of two gowns, and it is pretty difficult to identify which of the two is the original one.

The gown was worn by the beauty queen when she won Miss Universe back in 2018. It was also inspired by the Mayon Volcano in Albay, the hometown of her mother.

Earlier this year, Gray announced that she will be getting her own wax figure at Madame Tussauds.

A couple of weeks ago, the beauty queen also shared a video on Instagram recreating three different makeup looks from her Miss Universe journey. Once unveiled, the wax figure will be touring around Singapore, Bangkok, and Hong Kong.
