The Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray and the first ever Filipino Victoria’s Secret Model, Kelsey Merritt meet up at the amfAR Gala New York held at the Cipriani Wall Street. A mini reunion to say the least!
The two bumped into each other during the event and in fact, clicked a photo as well. Kelsey posted their photo on her official Twitter account and captioned the post,

Gray also posted their photo on her Instagram story. She had captioned her story, “Hi @kelseymerritt.”
During the event, Catriona flaunted her figure in a red, floral off-shoulder gown. On the other hand, Kelsey also looked astounding wearing a beaded silver halter gown.
Why were both Catriona Gray and Kelsey Merritt Present?
Not much of a mystery to anyone! Both Catriona Gray and Kelsey Merritt stand together in a fight against HIV/AIDS. The beauties work as the HIV/AIDS advocate for their country, Philippines. Hence, their presence!
The gala night, which served as the unofficial kick off of the New York Fashion Week, honors outstanding contributions of individuals who fight against HIV/AIDS.
The event showcased its lavishness with cocktails, seated dinner, musical performances, live auctions, and much more. And, let’s not forget about the tribute to the remarkable individuals who fight against the disease.
Delving back into topic, Catriona strictly supports HIV advocacy through the group Love Yourself Inc and promotes testing for HIV. Look at one of her recent posts asking people to test for HIV.
Both Catriona and Kelsey are set to attend the New York Fashion Week. The fashion week is due to start this Friday, February 8, 2019.
