Meet the new Miss Universe, Miss Mexico, Jimena Navarrete! The 22-year-old beat out 82 other hopefuls for the title of Miss Universe, and she was crowned tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Casino. Her evening gown was gorgeous and not too over-the-top pageant girl — a simple, one-shoulder, elegant red ballgown with a thigh-high slit. She looked beautiful.
Here are the rest of the ladies who made the top five:
1st runner-up: Miss Jamaica, Yendi Phillipps, 24
Her satin aqua gown wasn’t the most fashion-forward, but when we think of pageant dresses, this is what comes to mind.
2nd runner-up: Miss Australia, Jesinta Campbell, 19
Campbell went for a gold V-neck gown with embroidered silver and gold strands all over it. VERY pageant-girl!
3rd runner-up: Miss Urkraine, Anna Poslavska, 23
Ukraine’s dress was the most, shall we say, revealing? However, she looked like she could’ve been walking on a fashion runway, so it was one of our favorites, just for glamour’s sake.
4th runner-up: Miss Philippines, Venus Raj, 22
This metallic dress really shined, and shiny things are always great! However, we wish she would’ve lost the extra material on her right shoulder because it clashed with the sash and distracted you from seeing the rest of the dress.
Miss USA, 24-year-old Rima Fakih, did not advance past the first round. At least she looked radiant in red.
