It’s no surprise that Catriona Gray, the reigning Miss Universe, is a captivating presence in any room she enters — and that appeared true as she came face to face with the top official of Indonesia.
The Filipino beauty queen paid a courtesy call on Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Monday. The meeting resulted in a light moment that prompted laughter among those in attendance, going by videos circulating online.
As Gray approached President Widodo and shook his hand, the government leader appeared immediately taken by the pageant titlist’s charm, momentarily covering his grin with his other hand.
A clip of the reaction was shared on Instagram by Catriona Universe, a popular fan page dedicated to Gray’s Miss Universe reign.
Gray’s meeting with President Widodo came two days after she took part in Puteri Indonesia, the country’s counterpart of Binibining Pilipinas, as one of the guests alongside the reigning Miss International and Miss Supranational queens.
