She didn't win the crown, but Spain's Angela Ponce captivates netizens

Catriona Gray has proven that she's very hands-on with her Miss Universe outfits as she immersed herself in different local cultures and worked closely with designers.

Her message of support came a couple of days after Gray competed in the Miss Universe preliminaries, where she debuted her much-talked about "Lava Walk" that featured a slow-mo twirl.

While backstage at the Bangkok, Thailand event, Graham said: 'OK, so I am doing some quick as* changes, you guys, and then, of course, I fell down the stairs and I have got the medics on me. After a while I realised that I can't change other people's perspective of me.

"Praying for good weather, world peace and for Catriona to win Miss Universe!" she wrote.

In a second video she also shared on her Instagram Stories, she added: 'Thank you. "I'm OK, but I just wanted to let you guys know what I'm doing". "Oh it stings, but it's worth it".

This year's title wound up going to the Philippines' Catriona Gray - one of the early favorites - but that didn't stop pageant officials from giving Ponce a chance to speak about her history-making inclusion during a special, pre-recorded segment.

Catriona Gray, Miss Philippines, ultimately took home the night's top prize and while Ponce didn't make the top 20 in Sunday night's competition, her participation in the pageant represents a huge win for the visibility of transgender people on an global scale, something that the contestant addressed in an Instagram post prior to the contest.
