If there is one surprising fact about Catriona Gray's stunning look during the preliminary rounds of Miss Universe 2018 in Thailand is that she did not hire a glam team to help her prepare for the competition on Thursday night, December 14. In an Instagram video posted by ABS-CBN News reporter Dyan Castillejo, Catriona revealed that she did her own makeup and hair during the pageant.
Dyan posted, "@catriona_gray was so cool even backstage before the evening gown prelim comp . She did her own make up and hair . Ibong Adarna inspired gown studded with pure swarovski as per @maktumang."
According to Dyan, Catriona designed her earrings as well inspired by sun in the Philippine flag.
