An Aussie girl has taken out the title of Miss Universe for 2018, but it wasn’t our chosen Miss Australia!

Miss Philippines Catriona Gray was crowned Miss Universe in a ceremony in Bangkok today.

Catriona was born in Cairns, Queensland to a Scottish-born father and a Filipino mother. After attending school in Queensland, she moved to Manila to work as a model. So while she is most definitely Filipino, she's also Australian! 

She was chosen to represent The Philippines in the pageant earlier this year, after winning Binibining Pilipinas 2018.

Miss Australia, Francesca Hung, made it into the Top 20 at the pageant.

We're so proud of our Aussie girls!
