Tyra Banks is a Catriona Gray fangirl.
Yup, you read that right: our girl, our pride, our Miss Universe 2018 can call one of the world’s most legendary supermodels her fan. Tyra said so herself when she interviewed Catriona for a feature on V Magazine which was released online last night, April 2.
Tyra enthused, “I’m still recovering from your ‘Lava Walk’ at the Miss Universe pageant. I just kept watching and rewatching, like, What’s her secret? I was totally fangirling!”
The interview covered quite a bit, from their relationship to Filipino Youtube star Patrick Starrr to Tyra's Pinoy Power tweet, and even to the Philippines' obsession with beauty pageants. They also touched upon Catriona's scoliosis which made headlines last year when her mentor Nicole Cordoves revealed that “twirling” made the beauty queen “cry out in pain.”
However, Catriona downplayed her condition in the interview, proving her strength.
She revealed, “Yeah, I have scoliosis. It hasn’t really hindered me at all, except after a long day in heels when I do particularly feel it in my posture muscles.”
To which Tyra replied, “I am all about ‘flawesome’ which means your flaws are awesome.”
We couldn’t agree more!
