Chloe Powery-Doxey was stunning in New Orleans

R’bonney Gabriel is a Filipino-American

Miss Cayman Islands Universe, Chloe Powery-Doxey, has returned to the Cayman Islands after representing her country in the Miss Universe competition in the US. The 25-year-old George Town resident looked magnificent and spoke eloquently in all the categories. 

Although Powery-Doxey did not reach the final 16 round, she was an elegant and worthy representative of Cayman in a competition won by Miss USA, R’bonney Gabriel who was crowned on Saturday by last year’s winner, the 70th Miss Universe, Harnaaz Sandhu. Gabriel, 28, a fashion designer from Houston, Texas, lived so close that she drove the four hours to the pageant from her home.

Held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Centre, in New Orleans where more than 80 women vied for the coveted title, the competition featured interviews, evening gown, swimwear, and community impact categories.

The delegates introduced themselves after a spectacular entrance in which they simulated a Mardi Gras parade while a local band performed buzzing and vibrant jazz.

Gabriel is the first Filipino-American to win the Miss USA title. A graduate of the University of North Texas with a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design, she runs her own sustainable clothing line. Her platform was “for women and young girls to see themselves in her, and feel inspired to conquer their goals by owning who they are.”

The first runner-up was Miss Venezuela Amanda Dudamel. Second runner-up was Miss Dominican Republic Andreina Martinez Founier. The other finalists in the top five were Miss Curacao Gabriëla Dos Santos and Ashley Cariño, Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2022, so the Caribbean was well represented amongst the most beautiful.
