MISS FRANCE IRIS MITTENAERE WINS MISS UNIVERSE 2016
After weeks of great festivities in the island country of the Philippines, the 65th edition of the Miss Universe finally crowned a new queen. This time it is France's Iris Mittenaere who was successful besting out 80+ candidates for the crown. Reigning beauty queen Pia Wurtzbach crowned her successor on a jam-packed MOA Arena.
The victory ended a 63 year drought for France for the crown and has made a stunning remark on the changing of the standards for Miss Universe. She won over the judges and beat 1st Runner-up Raquel Pelissier of Haiti and 2nd Runner-up Andrea Tovar of Colombia. Philippine bet Maxine Medina ended in the Top 6.
Iris wowed the audiences in the preliminaries with her sexy national costume resembling that of a Moulin Rouge performer. Though her victory came at a surprise to some, she is one worthy title holder with beauty, poise and great heart. Well I had her at No. 6 in my final predictions. :)
