When the Filipino mega-beauty queen Catriona Gray was crowned Miss Universe 2018, everyone knew that her win was well-deserved. She had been in the pageant world since a very long time, along with which she had the experience and the heart to become the titleholder of such a prestigious and coveted beauty pageant. With so many years being put into the pageant world and into her community work, Catriona won hearts from all over the world.

Catriona is a force to reckon with. Her final walk, now famously known as the ‘Lava Walk’, referring to her slow and graceful pace on the runway and the unique and risky choice of her crimson red gown with a thigh-high slit, is still the talk of the town; or to be more precise the talk of the entire universe! It was therefore obvious that her birthday would be a complete blast given her win and her ever-increasing popularity.

The Australian-Filipino model and diva celebrated he 25th birthday on 6th January 2018. She got to celebrate her birthday as a reigning queen, what more could a girl wish for! But the humble soul that Catriona is, did not fail to address all the people who made it special for her. She posted a picture of hers with a caption along with it and it shows why she is a people’s queen most deserving for the crown.
