Miss Colombia Paulina Vega wears her crown and holds her bouquet of flowers after winning the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant held at Florida International University on Sunday (January 25) in Miami, Fla.
The 22-year-old beauty queen beat out 87 contestants from other countries around the world for the big prize. While the competition took place in 2015, it awarded the 2014 winner.
Coming in second place was Miss USA Nia Sanchez followed by Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha.
Paulina is a business administration student who had never competed in pageants before the contests leading up to Miss Universe. She plans on getting back to her studies and this will be her final pageant, according to the Associated Press.
“It will be a dream come true to represent the woman of today,” Paulina said earlier this week. “A woman that not only care about being beautiful and being glamorous, but also cares about being a professional, intelligent, hard-working person.”
