27 moments that shined during the 65th Miss Universe pageant


After the long journey, we’ve crowned a new “confidently beautiful” Miss Universe today.

It’s been 23 years since the Miss Universe pageant was held in the Philippines where Miss India, Sushmita Sen, took home the crown and became the first in her country to ever win the title. And today, another queen was crowned and hailed as the most beautiful woman in the universe.

Here’s a rundown of what happened at the 65th Miss Universe pageant:

1. Flo Rida opened the show with a bang and the ladies from all over the world showed us what “confidently beautiful” looked like as they walk.

20. Here are the all of the Top 6’s answers to their respective questions:

 

21. The Top 3 were: Colombia, France, and Haiti.

Even though Maxine didn’t win the crown, it was nice that for a moment, we are indeed “one as a nation.”

 

22. The question for the Top 3 was “Name something over the course of your life that you failed at, and tell us what you learned from that experience.”

Miss Colombia told us that those experiences will give us strength, principles, and values.

 

Miss France taught us that despite our failures, we should know how to try again and keep going.

 

Miss Haiti made us believe that we are where we are right now maybe because we are living our dreams.

 

23. Queen Pia did her final walk in that dreamy gown and we couldn’t contain our emotions!
