Just kween things.
Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and Miss Universe 2022 R'Bonney Gabriel came together for a magazine shoot.
Miss Universe's official Instagram account on Oct. 11 shared a Reel of the ladies' time in the studio as they posed for the cover of Vogue Philippines' October issue. They can be seen hugging each other, getting glammed up, and beaming at the camera as they do wacky poses.
They can also be seen holding matcha drinks.
In the comments section, Catriona said the shoot was "the most fun," as she mentioned R'Bonney.
"Loved that day," R'Bonney replied with a pink heart emoji.
The October issue also features fellow beauty queens Miss International 1979 Melanie Marquez, Miss World 2013 Megan Young, and Miss Universe Philippines 2023 Michelle Dee.
Miss Universe said that the cover story would include conversations "touching on topics such as manifesting, changing mindsets, and the pursuit of happiness."
Talking about finding true happiness, Catriona said she started to learn how to appreciate the littlest things and stopped comparing herself to others.
"I feel like the thief of joy is comparison—always looking to what you lack or don’t have or to what other people have and you don’t," she shared with Vogue Philippines. "But when I started counting the things to be grateful for, they can be as simplistic as, thank you that I have a safe, warm bed to sleep in tonight, that I have a roof over my head, I have food on my table. Like, it can start really, really small. As soon as you start counting those things, it really makes you view the world in a different place."
"And I feel like when you’re able to shift your mindset that way, no matter what storms you’re heading into or what challenges lay ahead of you, like you’ll always see something good in it," she added.
R'Bonney, for her part, believes that everyone is special and has something valuable to offer the world. And by using them to make a difference, they are living their best life.
"I truly believe that everybody is born with a capability or an offering to the world—something special, something unique. It doesn’t have to be grand. I mean everybody has a place in this world," said R'Bonney.
"I think everybody needs to go back and say whatever offering you have, you can do so much with it. And when you’re able to really tap in and find it, you’re really able to unlock your greatest potential, and when you’re operating at your greatest potential, to me, that is happiness and that is rewarding."
R'Bonney is set to crown her successor at the 72nd Miss Universe pageant on Nov. 18 in El Salvador. Michelle Dee will be representing the Philippines in the said pageant.
