A 25-year-old Venezuelan television presenter, Gabriela Isler, on Saturday was crowned Miss Universe in Moscow in a glittering ceremony.
Judges, including rock star Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, picked the winner from a total of 86 contestants at the show, watched by millions of viewers around the world.
Last year’s winner Olivia Culpo of the United States placed a diamond crown on the head of Isler, who wore a silver rhine-stone studded evening dress.
Isler’s triumph was the seventh Miss Universe win for Venezuela, where beauty pageants are a source of national pride.
After the show, she beamed and waved to journalists, wearing the Miss Universe sash and standing next to the show’s owner, US tycoon Donald Trump.
The event will be televised today 11/09/13 by Telemundo y NBC at 8 p.m. Centro.
