Catriona Gray has passed on the crown to the new Miss Universe, Zozibini Tunzi from South Africa. But before that, she took her final walk in a gorgeous gown by Mak Tumang called "Reflection," inspired by the Philippine eagle mirroring itself on the waves of the sea.

Thanking everyone who helped her win in 2018, Catriona shared her last message as Miss Universe:

"I've always believed that as women, we have the power to redefine our generation. When we raise our voices together, the words 'women power' become more than just a phrase, they become a movement.

"I wanted my year to be a reign with purpose—from advocating for quality education for all, to raising awareness for HIV AIDS, I've strived to use my voice for good.

"Thank you to mom and dad for always believing in me, Paula and Esther for your mentorship, the Miss Universe Organization, and to the Team Catriona, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"And to my beloved Philippines, isang karangalan po ito. You endlessly inspire me and give me hope. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat. 

"Above all, thank you, God. I lift everything up to glorify and honor you. As I close this chapter, I do so with a grateful heart.

"To everyone with a dream, know that your dreams are valid, and on your path, you are never denied, and only redirected."
