Miss Philippines Catriona Gray took home the crown at the 2018 Miss Universe pageant on Sunday night in Bangkok, Thailand, but she wasn't the only victor of the night. Apparently, it's the same with her hair and makeup too. Her natural and glowy look definitely complemented her Ibong Adarna gown.

Philippines' Catriona Gray, who was crowned this year's Miss Universe, has been vocal about her support for Ponce amid the controversy over transgender inclusion in the pageant.

"Bringing the name and colors of Spain before the universe is my great dream", Ponce wrote on Instagram after his victory.

Miss Spain, Angela Ponce, walked across the stage of the IMPACT Arena in Bangkok, Thailand this week with history ahead of her but not necessarily on her mind. "I'm going really fast".

"I don't need to win Miss Universe", explained Ponce, after failing to make the top 20.

"She didn't just wake up one day and was like, 'I feel like being a woman!' She feels it in herself". However, despite her participation Miss World organization didn't accept transgender participation.

"I'm competing because it's what I've wanted to do since I was a little girl", Ponce told Time before the pageant on Sunday.

But the focus wasn't only on her Mayon Volcano-inspired gown and the famed Mikimoto crown as many also noticed her iconic ear cuff.
