MANILA – Supermodel Tyra Banks has been “thinking” about Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray’s “lava walk,” and it seems that the pageant organization is willing to turn those musings into reality.
The “America’s Next Top Model” host and producer on Friday randomly tweeted: “Can’t stop thinking about that #LavaWalk.”
The “lava walk” was Gray’s signature sashay that helped her win the fourth Miss Universe crown for the Philippines in December 2018.
The Miss Universe Organization saw her post and replied: “We would love to see you and @catrionaelisa #lavawalk together!”
Gray was giddy over Banks’ most recent praise for her catwalk skills.
“Would be a dream @tyrabanks,” the Filipina beauty queen said on her Instagram stories, adding crying and heart emojis.
Banks first lauded Gray during the Miss Universe preliminaries when the Bicolana beauty stunned the audience with her “slo-mo twirl.”
“Pinoy power to the max!!!” Banks said in a tweet shortly after the Miss Universe swimsuit competition.
The American supermodel, known for her candid thoughts and critiques on models joining reality television contests, again praised Gray shortly after the Filipina was crowned as the new Miss Universe.
“That walk and confidence? I mean…NEXT LEVEL FIERCE!!! TyTy approves,” Banks said.
