Miss Universe is almost here and Miss Philippines Catriona Gray has just showcased her national costume, which is so elaborate, we don’t know which part of it we love the most.
In an Instagram post by Vogue Thailand, Catriona explains her elaborate costume: “My outfit is inspired by the three regions of the Philippines. I have handmade brass accessories, a T’boli headpiece and brass belt from Mindanao. The bodysuit is from Visayas, and my extra piece is from Luzon,” she says.
The extra piece, we have now come to find is a stunning hand painted piece of art, which we get a better look at on an Instagram post by designer Jearson D:
Her boots definitely deserve a closer look, too, which we get from an Instagram post by The Catriona Army:
