When Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray walked her final walk before the announcement of the result, everyone in the audience was fixated as the beautiful diva smiled, laughed and strutted on the stage with singer Ne-Yo giving out some of his best music. What the audience was actually waiting for was the infamous slow twirl in the end that everyone has fondly started calling the ‘Lava Walk’.

The reason Catriona’s final walk was named‘ Lava Walk’ was because of the choice of her gown that she helped design. This creation of Mak Tumang, named ‘Mayon’ had a special significance as Catriona wanted to bring forth a part of the culture and heritage of her country on to the stage. The gown was inspired by the Mayon volcano in the Philippines which is known for being in a perfect conical shape attracting a lot of tourists.
