A beauty with brains, Ariska Putri Petriwi from Indonesia has created history for her county.
Hearty congratulations to Ariska Putri Petriwi, 21, who won the Miss Grand International 2016 pageant!
For the first time in history, an Indonesian model has won the international beauty contest.
Ariska who also bagged the award for the best costume, almost won the jury in the interview round. When asked to pick between Hillary and Trump, she said she found Hillary Clinton "wise", "smart" and that the US presidential candidate had "the potential to end violence and war".
The woman of the moment, Ariska aspires to be a doctor.
Here are few pictures from the pageant that prove she truly deserved the crown.
