Mexican takes Miss Universe crown

A 22-year-old Mexico woman won the Miss Universe pageant after donning a flowing red gown and telling an audience that it is important to teach children family values.

Jimena Navarrete was first to answer an interview question and the last of 83 contestants standing in the pageant on the Las Vegas Strip.

Navarrete's one-strap gown flowed behind her as she held it out like a cape. Earlier she smiled in a violet bikini as she confidently strutted across the stage.

Navarrete was asked whether children should use the internet unsupervised and said the internet is an indispensable tool of our time.

Second was Miss Jamaica Yendi Phillipps, while third was Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell.
