Miss France, 23-year-old dental student Iris Mittenaere, walked away the victor of the 2017 Miss Universe.

Presenting last year's awards, Harvey presented Colombian stunner Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo with the coveted Miss Universe crown.

The competition is on for Miss Universe 2017, and ET's rounded up everything you need to know ahead of the highly anticipated global beauty pageant on Sunday.

"I don't really feel like it's the end of a reign, more like the beginning of a new chapter", she ended. Here are five facts to know about Iris Mittenaere's wiki including her net worth, parents, and age. I'm proud of you, Pia! She also is the first European victor of the pageant in over 10 years.

The annual pageant took place on Monday in Manila at the Mall of Asia Arena. Is there anything Miss Universe 2016 First Runner-up Raquel Pelissier can't do? The Miss Universe pageant is held in over 190 countries around the world.

She said this happened during her short visit in Cebu last January 17.

Clearly, Miss Kenya wasn't expecting a question on United States politics as she fumbled for a moment before ranting about the president.

"I'm very glad that they found interest in me".

It's pretty hard to steal the limelight from a beauty queen, but this Dubai-based designer certainly caught our attention at the Miss Universe final. Iris Mittenaere's parents are academics; her father, Yves, is a history professor, while her mother, Druart, is a lecturer and teacher. The final question to the top three finalists involved citing a failure in their lives, and Mittenaere confessed, "I've failed several times in my life". "Name something over the course that you failed at and tell us what you learned", the question went. "Can't let this happen again - you will not leave the Philippines". In an interview after the results of Miss Universe for the year were announced, she was quoted saying, "I will utilize the title in helping people around the world, will try to understand them".

"French translator said: when I missed my first casting". She bagged the crown after defeating Miss Haiti and Miss Colombia in the Philippines.

Miss France Iris Mittenaere was the 65th Miss Universe to wear the coveted crown after being proclaimed victor on Monday (Philippine time) at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena in Pasay City.
