The Philippines might just be the beauty pageant capital of the world (let's claim it) and over the years, it's become a habit for Filipinos to name our contestants' signature walks! 

Here, a rundown of the most iconic Miss Universe Philippines walks, from 2018 all the way back to 2010: 

Catriona Gray's "Lava Walk" (2018) 

"Yung major important aspect lang sa mga catwalk is really the posture and then the face and then hips…and the posture's easy it's parang invisible string lang," Catriona said in July. "When you walk, you're giving an aura."

The beauty queen wowed us all when she added the now-iconic "slo-mo turn" to her walk during this year's Preliminary Competition!

Rachel Peters' "Infinity Walk" (2017) 

"Her best assets [are] her legs. [They're] really long, so parang infinity na siya," declared catwalk trainer George Garrido (also known as "Mommy G").

Maxine Medina's "Alta Walk" (2016)

Pia Wurtzbach's "Tanim-Bala Walk" (2015) 

Comedian Vice Ganda coined the term when Pia guested on his show, saying, "Yung mata niya nanlilisik e, parang matalim 'di ba? Bakit 'di natin pangalanang tanim-bala walk 'yan?

Mary Jean Lastimosa's "Camel Walk" (2014)

Ariella Arrida's "Ariba Walk" (2013)

 

Janine Tugonon's "Cobra Walk" (2012)

According to Janine, here's what makes her walk different: "Kasi may power. 'Yon yung palaging sinasabi sa akin ng trainer ko, e. Kailangan pag lumakad ka kailangan may power, yung aura mo lalabas so ayun, kaya siya distinct." 

Shamcey Supsup's "Tsunami Walk" (2011)

Shamcey revealed that the phrase came from a Spanish friend who told her to "walk like a tsunami." 

Venus Raj's "Pilapil Walk" (2010)

The Miss Universe 2010 fourth runner-up learned her signature walk from Jonas Gaffud and his pageant training camp, Aces and Queens
