Some of the most beautiful and talented women in the world turned out to compete for the title of Miss Universe on Sunday, and after the pageant came to a close, Miss France Iris Mittenaere went home the victor.

Steve Harvey once again hosted this year's pageant -- despite his mistake last year when he declared the wrong contestant Miss Universe and then had to redact the announcement minutes later -- but he made sure not to drop the ball two years in a row.

As Mittenaere's name was called as this year's Miss Universe, it seemed clear that the 24-year-old model was shocked to be crowned the winner. She marks the first European Miss Universe since 1990.


Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier, who enthusiastically hugged Mittenaere after she won, was the first runner up, while Miss Colombia Andrea Tovar came in as this year's second runner up.

Mittenaere, who cried tears of joy as she was given her sash and bouquet, received the coveted crown from outgoing Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach, who represented the Philippines when she won the title last year.
