As we excitedly tweeted this morning, the winner of the Miss Universe pageant has finally been crowned, and this time round it went to none other than Miss USA Olivia Culpo.

All of the finalists were enviably stunning (no surprises there!) but we think Olivia had something extra special which is why we agree with the judges’ decision to give her the top prize.

The very worthy winner received her bling-tastic crown wearing a red hot gown from the Georges Hobeika autumn/winter 2012 Couture collection, which only shows how far the competition has progressed over the years. Well if reality TV stars and D list celebs can wear Couture, why can’t the Miss Universe competitors, hm?

We love Olivia’s epic, gravity-defying ballerina bun too, as it let her natural beauty shine through while ensuring all attention was on the red hot dress at the same time. We would have personally gone for a tad less cleavage, but then again we do live by the “if you’ve got it, flaunt it” mantra… and there’s no denying the fact that Olivia has it.

Do you think the right winner was crowned? Do you love her Couture creation as much as we do?
