CATRIONA MEETS KELSEY

Last night in NYC, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray finally met Kelsey Meritt, the first Victoria's Secret model from the Philippines at the amfAR Gala New York in Manhattan. The amfAR Gala New York served as the unofficial kickoff to New York Fashion Week and honoured individuals who made outstanding contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS. The spectacular black-tie event featured cocktails, a seated dinner, a live auction of luxury items, musical performances, and a special tribute to honorees.



Since 1998, the amfAR Gala New York has become one of New York City’s most successful and high-profile AIDS benefit events. The Gala consistently attracts—and salutes—some of the biggest names in entertainment, fashion, art, and AIDS advocacy. To date, the amfAR Gala New York has raised close to $21 million. Meanwhile, Catriona is the fourth Miss Universe titleholder from the Philippines.

Kudos to these two wonderful ladies!

I love both girls but Cat's styling here is a mess, she looks like she's ready to go prom with her friends.

MUO needs a new stylist who is more current, the fits he's been giving Cat has been uninspiring since she was crowned. She looked better as a Miss Philippines tbh.

Kelsey on the other hand... :7

Haven’t seen much of Catriona Gray lately, but she definitely looked radiant and stunning during her media week, with her styling complementing her beauty!

How I wish Kelsey would take the risk of joining MUP this year because she has so much "it" factor without exerting any effort at all. I know it is a huge risk in her career to let go of Victoria's Secret to become a pageant aspirant but surely, the rewards of becoming a beauty queen are definitely worth it. She can always go back to modeling after she becomes a Miss Universe.

To those who don't know the name of the official stylist of MUO, his name is Marquis Bias.

Marquis Bias's styling on Catriona has been mostly uninspired and average in terms of "wow factor" since January. The only styling I liked that he did on Catriona was this ensemble:

The rest were meh!

WITH HER CURRENT STATURE. SHE'S OVERQUALIFIED FOR THE MISS UNIVERSE CROWN. A JUDGE IN MISS UNIVERSE MOST PROBABLY!..WHY SHE WILL GO A NOTCH LOWER TO COMPETE IN A BEAUTY PAGEANT SUCH AS MISS UNIVERSE? =b

I don't think she is overqualified because modeling and pageantry are two different fields.

Both look awful but the Kelsey girl has the edge over Catriona.

Puhleez. What does Kelsey know about being Miss Universe to be a contestant, much more be a judge? Has she been involved in ANY advocacy at all and seen it through? Has she served as a spokeswoman for any organization? Has she been invited to present at institutions such as the United Nations? Would she even make it if she were to compete at a local pageant or represent her country at Miss Universe?

She’s ONLY a model. She has to show more — way more — than that as a woman and as a person to be a Miss Universe. [-X

I actually disagree. Catriona has looked good in whatever styling and wardrobe she’s had (of course she looks better in some, but they have to vary her look of course and not all looks will appeal to everyone). And she’s certainly more attractive than this Kelsey model (more towering, too, both literally and figuratively).

But I agree that the MUO needs to consider other stylists as well (not necessarily replacing their existing one, but adding to him). It doesn’t hurt to get a variety of styling ideas. Catriona had MANY stylists working with her as Miss Universe Philippines to make sure her look was always on point. And we all saw the result of this strategy during the Miss Universe run!

You guys are complaining about Marquis Bias' choice of wardrobe for Catriona. But does he have the liberty to choose which wardrobe suits Ms Universe best without deference to MUO's budgeted allocation for such expense item?

I don't think budget or any other monetary factors is a concern. It's Miss Universe we're talking about. Of course, they have a budget for the winner's styling. Plus, MUO can't afford for her to lose their A-Game since she's representing their org.

On the other hand, you can still be stylist without being expensive. It's just a matter of proper planning and what wardrobe will fit Catriona.

Now I wonder, does she has an input when it comes to her styling or does she just let the MUO do their job?

The budget has nothing to do with having the right colour or silhouette for the right occasion. Marquis made Catriona miss what the occasion appropriately called for. During the Superbowl, he let Catriona wear black when the occasion was an all-American football game. It should've been any of the reds, whites, and blues, or anything colourful other than an evening colour like black! Catriona looked like she was going to a fashion show instead of a late afternoon outdoor football game. Last night at the gala that was a star-studded black-tie event, Marquis let Catriona wear a red floral gown that looked more appropriate for a Belmont Park event than an indoor formal occasion. What Catriona needed to complete the Belmont Park ensemble was a friggin' hat! Thank God, Catriona was still able to pull it off but between she and Kelsey together, it was Kelsey who was properly dressed for the occasion.

He's lucky that Catriona Gray looks good in anything, but yes, talk about planning ahead for an appropriate wardrobe!

I totally get your point but for the sake of discussion, I don't think both fields are the same. A pageant girl's focus is on HER while a runway model's focus is on THE CLOTHING. A pageant girl wears clothes that accentuate and make her look better against her fellow contestants while a runway model's job is to make the clothes or wearable art look good based on the persona or "look" that her designer or brand wants to convey. Femininity is a must in pageantry while androgyny is welcomed in the fashion industry.

In the same token, while we both agree that lemons and limes are excellent citrus fruits, however, we still cannot readily say that limes are better than lemons, or the other way around because while both share similar shapes, they still have different colours, tanginess and vitamin C levels which make them distinct from each other.

You're absolutely correct and this is the very reason why your favourite beauty queen, H'Hen, orgasmically eats OUR ordinary dried fish, your beauty queens get their training from OUR Filipino coaches, imitate OUR queens' walks, and copy OUR designers' designs, right? That's how irresistibly awful we are.

Overqualified? Kelsey can't even finish half an interview without constantly cutting her train of thought in her sentences and without resorting to code switching between Filipino and English.

Not only is she inarticulate and physically INFERIOR next to Catriona, she has NO socially relevant experience to speak of. As someone has said, she is only a runway model. She's disposable in society. [-X
