Foods Fit for a Beauty Queen
And the winner of Miss Universe 2013 goes to… Gabriela Isler! The 25-year-old brunette bombshell, who hails from Venezuela and works as a TV anchor, beat out contestants from 85 other countries at the 62nd annual beauty competition to nab the ultimate crown.
"I am beyond excited to be Miss Universe! I'm anxious to know what this year will bring to me. I feel blessed to have this opportunity to make my country proud," Isler says.
