MANILA, PHILIPPINES — On Sunday, July 31, at the Araneta Coliseum, as the beauty queen wore an enormous gold earring inspired by traditional Pintados tattoos, Catriona Gray quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
While hosts Catriona and Nicole Cordoves delivered their introductory speeches, social media users quickly noticed how big Miss Universe 2018’s earrings were.
Heavy-looking earrings were hanging over Catriona’s collarbones, which sparked the internet’s funniest responses.
The Phenomenal Star Vice Ganda and social media followers reacted to how Catriona Gray’s “chandelier” earrings stole the opening number of Binibining Pilipinas 2022.
“Sana naghikaw si Catriona. Ang plain e! #BinibiningPilipinas“, Vice’s tweet.
(I wish she wore earrings, it’s too plain!)

Here are some reactions from users on social media:
Some electricity transmission towers have been recalled too.
ICYDK, the Pintados tattoos in the Boxer Codex inspired the partnership between the beauty queen and the artisan jewelry company MJorian, which crafted the earrings.
“To embody the warrior’s spirit shared by all of our 2022 Binibinis!” Catriona posted on her social media.
The former Miss Universe claimed that she has always loved statement earrings.
“I cherish earrings. At the moment, I’m obsessed with gold. Particularly with unconventional, accentuated earrings, rather than simply the traditional pearl or traditional chandelier,” Gray told PEP in January 2018.
The 58th edition of the pageant’s winners are Nicole Borromeo of Cebu (Bb. Pilipinas International), Gabrielle Basiano of Samar (Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental), Chelsea Fernandez of Tacloban City (Bb. Pilipinas Globe), and Roberta Angela Tamondong of San Pablo, Laguna (Bb. Pilipinas Grand International).
The first runner-up was Herlene Budol of Angono, Rizal, while the second runner-up was Stacey Daniella Gabriel of Cainta, Rizal. – WhatALife!/Brix
