Catriona Gray has been named the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire Magazine.
The Fil-Aussie pride, who is the fourth Miss Universe to hail from the Philippines, served us major understated goddess in her cover shoot and while that might be enough to tide most of us over, she also gave one of the most unique beauty queen interviews we've ever read.
Instead of focusing on her journey to being BFFs with the Mikimoto crown, she put the spotlight on Young Focus International, a Tondo-based organization that has had a special place in her heart even before she was crowned queen.
She said, "The stories from the children, the staff, the families, are really stories of hope, persistence, and just the love that people have there, it really changes your perspective. I know it changed mine.”
She also spoke about the changing tides within pageant circles, from the work to address sexual harassment cases to diversification. She enthused, "Pageants are constantly evolving because the audience is demanding that. People want to see themselves represented on stage. So we’re seeing more inclusivity, whether it be gender, body types, or people from all walks of life. I think we’re moving in that direction."
