DUBAI – Miss Universe Catriona Gray has hinted at a possible travel to Dubai in September, while announcing that she is set to appear on the cover of a Dubai-based lifestyle magazine.
“Hi Dubai! I’m so excited to be your cover girl for Xpedition Magazine for the month of September, see you on your side of the world soon!” the beauty queen posted on Instagram.
In June, Gray was spotted with the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Josh M. Yugen, in New York City.
Yugen said the Filipina beauty was “most genuine, most fun” during their encounter. “Her laughter is both charming and contagious at the same time,” he said.
Gray will crown her successor and the next Miss Universe in December. “I’m going to continue doing the work that I am doing, again a lot more travels around the world coming up,” Gray was quoted as saying in an interview on Xpedition Magazine.
Since winning the crown in 2018, Gray has been at the forefront of various charity movements. The beauty queen also received an outpouring of support after she was called “fat” in an Instagram Story posted by Thai beauty queen Coco Arayha Suparurk, who received online flak for her post.
Gray has not commented on the issue, but in a recent Q&A with fans on social media, talked about her stand against bullying and body shaming.
“You are so much more than your body! You are you mind and your unique talents and your character and your life experiences and your personality! You are so so much more than the exterior! And people will always remember how you made them feel and not how you looked,” Gray said. DAJ/Expat Media
