Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, who was mistakenly crowned Miss Universe 2015 after event host Steve Harvey declared the wrong winner, has finally opened up about the major goof-up, on her Instagram page.

The beauty queen released a statement shortly after the USD 400,000 crown featuring 10 carats of diamonds was plucked from her head and awarded to Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

"After the storm comes the calm. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world," she wrote.

Gutierrez was basking in the moment when Harvey returned to correct the mistake and declared the real winner was Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of Philippines.

The whole incident became a major embarrassment for the pageant organisers and also for the host.

The Colombian beauty, who went through a myriad of emotions before hundreds of thousands of audiences, has expressed her gratitude to fans, who supported her through the ordeal.

The Miss Universe runner-up also admitted that she believes in destiny and would cherish those few moments of glory when she was announced Miss Universe.

"Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes.... Today because of that Colombia and the Latin community are being talked about in every corner of the world.

"I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your love, support and kindness."

But, there are a couple of names in the top ten that might be a bit more of a surprise!"
