19-Yr-Old Stephanie Del Valle of Peurto Rico Crowned Miss World 2016

Miss Puerto Rico Stephanie Del Valle has been crowned Miss World 2016. The 19-year-old student was selected from 117 beautiful women from around the world who were competing for the coveted title.

Spain’s Mireia Lalaguna, who won the title in 2015, crowned her successor at the lavish beauty pageant on Sunday (18 December.)

The top five finalists were Miss Kenya, Miss Philippines, Miss Dominican Republic, Miss Puerto Rico and Miss Philippines.

Miss Dominican Republic was named first runner-up, while Miss Indonesia was second runner-up. Miss Mongolia was announced as the winner of the People’s Choice award.

Miss India, who is traditionally considered a strong contender in the competition after three predecessors – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Yukta Mookhey – won the title, failed to make it to the top 10 list.

For Del Valle, representing her country in the competition and winning the Miss World title was a dream come true. The second Miss World to come from Puerto Rico, she previously won Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico 2016.
