On August 23, in the final showdown of the Miss Universe 2010, 83 participants from around the world gave their last best effort for the title of beauty queen. The crown winner was 22-year-old Jimena Navarrete of Mexico. The new Miss Universe got a diamond tiara with a set of jewelry from Diamond Nexus Labs, and a prize money, the size of which the organizing committee refuse to disclose. We know it would be substantial.
In addition to jewelry, Miss Navarrete received an assortment of prizes which includes a one year scholarship (including housing) from the New York Film Academy, a set of collectible shoes, bathing suits, sets of skin care, hair services of leading hairdressers, stylists, dermatologists, and what not.
Here is a selection of photographs taken during the two-hour long final event. Previously we featured the full collection of Miss Universe 2010 contestants in national costumes.
