The Bicolana beauty and model shared during a Facebook Live that her national costume is to be watched out for. Without giving away any surprise, Catriona said that it will represent “buong Pilipinas” or the whole Philippines and that it has something to do with Christmas season.

Catriona said: “It's never been done before by a Filipino candidate. And usually, the only hint that I give is that it's buong Pilipinas or whole of Philippines but another hint that I'll give just for this Facebook live is that a part of it represents Christmas.”

She also added that the costume is “heavy”. Catriona is excited and is looking forward for the Miss Universe 2018 national costume competition which will be held on December 10 in Pattaya, Thailand. “I’m really really excited because I’ve never been to Pattaya and it would be really great to explore another corner of Thailand,” Catriona said.

Meanwhile, Catriona continues to be crowd favorite as she looks stunning in her Filipino-made fashion pieces. During her arrival in Bangkok, Catriona was seen in an emerald jumpsuit made by Filipino designer Anthony Ramirez and paired it with a shell-shaped clutch bag from a Filipino brand Calli Handbags.
