Nel-Peters, 22, a business management graduate from North-West University, bested 91 other contestants and was crowned as the 66th Miss Universe by her predecessor Iris Mittenaere of France. This year's judges included YouTube star Lele Pons, former judge of "America's Next Top Model" Jay Manuel and Wendy Fitzwilliam, the 1998 Miss Universe victor from Trinidad and Tobago.

Louise fulfilled a long-term dream in representing Saint Lucia on the grand stage of Miss Universe.

"In some places, women get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours-and I do not believe that this is right, ' she said". This is the largest Miss Universe in the pageant's history. "She is a woman that nothing is ever too much to ask for, and I think that is exactly who I am".

"If women take hands and stand together, we are unbreakable", Nel-Peters said.

Even at the 2017 Miss Universe Pageant Sunday night, which brought some of the world's most accomplished, intelligent and attractive women together, America's political climate loomed.

The outspoken poet said she had "outgrown" Eurocentric beauty standards and argued that "We are raising another generation of black girls who must aspire to whiteness".

A South African pageant has been crowned the world's most handsome woman in 2017 after she beat some 92 hot and dashing finalists in the 2017 Miss Universe contest.

Just goes to show you that pageants like this one - and all the women fighting for the crown - are about a lot more than swimsuits, ballgowns and stilettos.

Miss Colombia Laura Gonzalez finished as first-runner up while Miss Jamaica Davina Bennett was named second-runner up. Thailand's Maria Poonlertlarp and Venezuela's Keysi Sayago completed the top 5. And so Miss Universe competition will be the platform for me to use this foundation to spread awareness for all the deaf and mute around.

Whereas there are those who are very happy that Nel-Peters won, others have been left dissatisfied with the choice of 2017 Miss Universe.

The Miss Universe Organization implemented a new mechanics for the coronation event, selecting the top 16 per continent.

Seeing women of color compete in pageants while rocking their natural hair is an empowering deviation from seeing the blown-out, straighter hairstyles contestants traditionally wear.
