Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray's signature lava gown still remains to be one of the most iconic dresses we’ve seen in a pageant.
But before the eye-catching, fiery red dress debuted on stage, there were dress rehearsals and we got a glimpse this process and the dress' raw, unembellished form thanks to one of the beauty queen's fan pages.
In a series of photos shared on Instagram, we also saw Catriona's dress rehearsals for her gold, Ibong Adarna-inspired gown, as well as for the sparkling blue dress she wore when she had her final walk as a Miss Universe and passed the crown to Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi.
We have to say: these dresses were alreadt mesmerizing even before Catriona gave them life on stage.
You can see more of her stunning photos in the gallery above!
