The 65th Miss Universe competition recently took place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. The 86 delegates participated in pre-pageant activities, which included tours around the Philippines in between swimsuit, long gown, and national costume competitions. After a 3-week long journey, meet the new Miss Universe – Miss France Iris Mittenaere.
Mittenaere inherits the crown from 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach. For those who watched the latter’s reign closely, we’re sure you’ll agree about Miss France having big shoes to fill. Judging by how well Mitteneare performed during this year’s pageant, she’s well on her way to an amazing reign herself. Take a look at her journey to the crown.
