As expected and predicted, Catriona Gray bagged the Miss World Philippines 2016 title on Sunday at the Manila Hotel.

The 22-year-old Filipino-Australian model from Albay will represent the country at the prestigious Miss World pageant, to be held in December in Washington DC, USA.

 

Catriona also bagged Miss Manila Hotel, Miss Hannah, Best in Fashion Runway, Best in Swimsuit, Best in Evening Gown and Best in Fashion Runway.

Asked why she should win, Gray said: “To be a Miss World is to be passed a torch that burns with passion and purpose. If I am to become MIss World Philippines, I will dedicate my voice and essence to carry that torch and to set charitable causes alight, such as my personal advocacy, the Paraiso Bright Beginnings Project. And I would focus on passing on this torch to empower others because I believe together there is no darkness in this world that our light cannot overcome.”

Her court included Arienne Calingo (1st princess), Ivanna Pacis (2nd princess), Marah Muñoz (3rd princess) and Sandra Lemonon (4th princess). Photos by Bong Tan of Missosology.org
