- Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray has established her signature move which is the “slow-mo” turn
- It became the subject of public’s witty mind as a netizen thought of what it represents
- There was also a funny “symbolism” of the national costume of Catriona
A lot of netizens just could not get enough of how the newly-crowned Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray makes her famous “slow-mo” turn extra-iconic.
KAMI learned that the Pinay beauty queen introduced her signature twirl to public which evidently became one of the factors why she won the highly-coveted title.
Since the beginning of her Miss Universe journey, Catriona has been making headlines especially with her choice to represent the Philippines in every dress or accessory she wears.
One example of this was her outfit when she arrived in Bangkok, Thailand on November 29 which was a Thai-inspired jumpsuit plus ornamental shell earrings.
During the preliminary competition, the Bicolana model wore a unique evening gown created by Mak Tumang who drew inspiration from the iconic “Ibong Adarna” myth of the Philippines.
Because of the symbolisms that Catriona promotes in her wardrobes, a lot of social media users thought of how they would interpret the “slow-mo” turn of the beauty queen.
Until a netizen posted a hilarious message which revealed what seemed to be the “symbolism” of the said signature move.
“May meaning pala yung pa slow-mo ni Catriona. Nire-represent pala nun ang internet sa Pinas,” the netizen wrote.
After this funny realization was posted online, a social media user also poked fun at the supply of electricity in the country and related it to the national costume of Catriona.
He said the reason why the beauty queen experienced a technical glitch in her “parol” was because the electricity in the Philippines could not reach far places.
“So yung national costume nya na parol, kaya hindi umilaw kasi representation ng electric services sa pinas? Di kaya umabot sa malayong lugar?” he commented.
Here is the video of the famous turn:
In a previous article by KAMI, the epic reactions of celebrities upon hearing the anme of Catriona as the winner were reported.
