It is pretty wild to think someone can be crowned a representative of the universe, but we do have this yearly contest where most of the countries send their representative to be so. This year, a Filipina-Australian stunner with smarts, charm and a heart of gold took that coveted title of Miss Universe.
In the last few days of 2018, I shared my photographs of a 16-year old aspiring model, fresh from Australia, and just signed to a local agency. Time has really passed. Almost a decade ago, Catriona was just starting out, traveling to the very far east end of Manila City to shoot with a couple of dudes, and now she’s conquering the globe.
