Catriona Gray always puts the Philippines as the inspiration behind everything she wears at the Miss Universe 2018 pageant.

On Thursday, December 13, the 24-year-old Bicolana beauty queen made headlines after giving an impressive performance at the pageant's preliminaries held at the IMPACT Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

Catriona looked gorgeous in her Ibong Adarna-inspired evening gown made by Filipino fashion designer Mak Tumang.

She was styled by Ton Lao and Justine Aliman.

Aside from her gown, the pair of dangling earrings she wore during the evening gown segment also featured Philippine-inspired elements.

Fun Fact: Catriona actually designed the earrings with local brand Tessera Jewelry.

The earrings she wore had four gold-colored South Sea pearls which resemble the three stars and the sun on the Philippine flag.

One of the pearls served as the sun with eight rays while others are dangling on a single strand of gold chain with three diamonds.

On Friday, December 14, Catriona shared the details of her evening gown look.
