Catriona Gray is many things. The successful commercial model can paint, sing, write songs, host, and even kick ass at Choi Kwang-Do martial arts. At 24 years old, she has been crowned the Miss World Philippines in 2016—and is now getting ready to represent the country in this year’s much-awaited Miss Universe pageant. One might say she’s a restless soul—in the best possible way. Her diverse talents and willingness to try multiple feats show she won’t settle to being boxed by previous achievements, and she’s not afraid to explore her options. This is also reflected in her love for travel. Scrolling through her feed or blog, you can see the many places she’s visited locally and internationally. It seems when she’s not gracing the covers of magazines or of fashion campaigns, she’s out immersing herself in different cultures. As a model, we see her in different labels, but her own personal style—chic yet comfortable—is reflected through her travels.
Catriona show us how to nail a monochromatic outfit. Her purple ensemble is given a step up by the way she played with textures and patterns. Here, she is wearing a @bragaisjojo menswear button down shirt with a printed skirt.
The beauty queen explored antique shops along the lovely streets of Vigan with pastel trousers, a cute fedora straw hat, and matching flats.
This time, Catriona went with timeless chic while exploring Shanghai in an all-white outfit with leather accents. Her white culottes, white sleeveless top, and white sneakers were expertly matched with brown leather belt and bag.
Our Miss Universe bet looked like she belonged in the island in her cropped top and tropical-printed bottoms.
Comfort was key for Catriona when she visited Shibuya crossing and a cat cafe in Japan in her fave sneakers, distressed denim overalls and a printed white shirt underneath.
