It's her second pageant title after winning Miss World Philippines in 2016.
The Filipino-Australian beauty queen finished Top 5 at the Miss World 2016 competition held in Washington, D.C. in 2016.

The Filipino-Chinese beauty competed in Miss Earth 2001 held at the UP Theater.
She finished in Top 10.
Four years later, Carlene joined Binibining Pilipinas 2005, and won Binibining Pilipinas-World 2005.
She finished Top 15 at the Miss World 2005 competition held in Iceland.
Today, Carlene is married to her non-showbiz husband, Yo Ocampo, and is a mother of three boys, Calix, Marcus, and Hunter.
