Beauty queens today descended on London to be put through their paces at the Miss World final - returning to the city where it all started 63 years ago.
The coveted crown was taken home by Miss South Africa, Rolene Strauss.
She was presented the glittering accolade by last year's winner, Megan Young of the Philippines.
The 22-year-old, who is studying medicine at the University of the Free State, proved that she is both beauty and brains.
Her first runner up was Miss Hungary, Edina Kulcsar, and second runner up was Miss United States, Elizabeth Safrit.
