The Miss Universe 2010 beauty pageant drew to a close in Las Vegas last night wit the crowning of a new winner -- Miss Mexico. Here's a look at her exciting moment, the runners-up
Jimena Navarrete is all of 22, but the doe-eyed brunette stunner was able to edge out stiff competition to grab the title.
Originally from the city of Guadalajara, she studied nutrition prior to her participation in pageants.
Jimena is the second-ever Mexican winner of the Miss Universe competition, succeeding her predecessor, Lupita Jones, after a gap of 19 years. Coincidentally, Jones was also crowned the winner in Las Vegas.
Second position went to 24-year-old Yendi Phillipps, representing Jamaica. This is the first time her country has placed so high up in the pageant.
The 5'10" dusky beauty holds a bachelor's degree in fine arts with a concentration on dance.
All of 19, Australian Jesinta Campbell snagged third spot.
The teenager from Sydney, who is still pursuing her education, also bagged the title of 'Miss Congeniality' in the special awards category.
