The steady flow of lava, representative of her hometown Albay where the imposing and famed Mayon Volcano stands, is said to be the inspiration behind Catriona Gray's slow-mo turn at the Miss Universe stage that has sent Filipino pageant fans insane recently.

Catriona Gray finally walked in her much-awaited evening gown.
