Bukod sa mga naging outfit, angat na angat din ang talentong Pinoy sa naging National Costume ng Pinay beauty na ipinaliwanag pa niya ang bawat kahulugan.
LUZVIMINDA: "Magdiwang. Lumaban. Pagyamanin." 🇵🇭✨ LUZON-- MAGDIWANG" (Celebrate): The island group of LUZON is represented by the world-renowned "PAROL/CHRISTMAS LANTERN" from the province of Pampanga with a BRASS BORDER designed and made in Apalit, Pampanga (inspired by designs from the Philippine Baroque Churches that were declared as UNESCO Heritage Sites) At the back of the PAROL is a PAINTING with INSCRIPTION of the lyrics from "LUPANG HINIRANG", the Philippines’ National Anthem written in Baybayin (Ancient Filipino Alphabet) that literally translates to: "Lupang hinirang, Duyan ka ng magiting, Sa manlulupig Di ka pasisiil. Sa dagat at bundok, Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw." The PAINTING also highlighted victories, festivals, events, heroes and national icons with a style inspired by the works of Philippine National Artist Carlos "Botong" Francisco, a native of the Art Capital of the Philippines, Angono, Rizal in Luzon. VISAYAS--LUMABAN" (Fight): The island group of VISAYAS is represented by a body suit with authentic "tattoo designs" embellished with crystals derived from patterns used by the "PINTADOS" who are indigenous peoples found in various islands in this part of the Philippines. The tattoo patterns are authentic and based from the manusript "BOXER CODEX" written in 1590. The tattoos represent an individual’s journey and a public testimony recounting acts of combat, bravery, and strength, that perfectly represents the courageous and resilient Filipino spirit amidst trials we face in this day and age. MINDANAO-- “PAGYAMANIN" (Enrich): The island group of MINDANAO is represented by an authentic "HEADPIECE & BRASS ACCESSORIES" from the province of South Cotabato and customized KNEE-HIGH BOOTS with embroidered designs inspired by different indigenous textile patterns from the southern part of the Philippines, namely: Inaul, Yakan, Maranao, B'laan, Bagobo, Tausug and T'nalak. The woven textiles express a strong belief in "ancestral and natural spirits" and "cultural roots" of indigenous communities that remain well-preserved up to this day. Pilipinas, para sa iyo ang lahat ng ito. 🇵🇭 @missuniverse 🎥 @benjaminaskinas
Sa Preliminary Competition, pasabog din ang Ibong Adarna gown ni Catriona na likha ng designer na si Mak Tumang.
IBONG ADARNA 🧡🇵🇭 The Blazing Siren by @maktumang My preliminary gown was inspired by the 'Ibong Adarna': a prominent Filipino folklore that is a mythologicalnous bird. Story goes, the Ibong Adarna's enchanting voice can enable complete healing to anyone who hears it. Some artists liken it to the mythological Phoenix where it recurrently regenerates itself by arising amidst a spectacle of flames and candescence. This makes it a fitting symbol of resilience, rising and rebirth. 🇵🇭🔥 My earrings were designed by me and executed by @tesserajewelry as another ode to the Philippines with the Philippine sun and golden South sea pearls, our national gem. 🇵🇭 Thank you to @maktumang for his amazing craftsmanship and exquisite execution of this gown, to @justine.aliman19 and @ton_lao for styling in @bragaisjojo heels and @tesserajewelry. Thank you to mamang @hairbybrentsales and @jellyeugenio for teaching me to slay my hair and makeup! And to @carlosbuendiajr, the man behind my walk 🌋 I love you all!!!
Ayon naman sa celebrity stylist na si Justine Aliman na tumutok sa outfit ng Pinay beauty, pinagisipan at pinaghandaan talaga ang bawat kausotan para sa magiging laban.
“Sobrang matagal na pinaghandaan ni Cat ang mga ito, actually sa buong team namin since pagkatapos pa lang ng Binibining Pilipinas,” kuwento pa ng kaibigan na stylist ni Catriona.
Aniya, hindi nila nakitaan ng pagkapagod ang Pinay Miss Universe candidate sa mga ginagawa nito.
“Actually sinasabi niya na hindi siya napapagod, pero sabi niya mapapagod din siya,” sabi pa niya.
Kahit na abala sa iba’t-ibang appearances, hands on daw si Catriona sa naging mga pasabog niya.
“Iba ‘yung dedication niya sa bagay na ginagawa niya andoon ang kanyang focus at talagang OC siya sa mga detalye,” pahayag pa ni Justine.
Sa darating na December 17, mapapanuod ang exclusive telecast ng Miss Universe 2018 sa ABS-CBN.
