Jan 31: Iris Mittenaere was crowned Miss Universe 2017 on Monday.
The brunette beauty went on to the worldwide competition after being crowned Miss France 2016.
Iris is a native of Lille, a city in northern France, and her platform throughout the competition has been advocating for dental and oral hygiene.
The 24-year-old has a keen interest in the subject and is currently working towards a degree in dental surgery, and with that movie star smile of hers, she’s basically a walking advertisement.
She won the title at the competition’s final on Sunday, January 29, in Manila, Philippines.
She’s only the second Miss France to ever win the Miss Universe crown.
Iris is also the first European to take the crown since 2002.
She’s also a big cook and regularly posts photos and videos of her culinary creations to her Instagram account.
She recently enjoyed a cooking session with Michelin chef Frédéric Anton and posted about what an honour it was.
She also shared her strong views on immigration during the contest, saying she’s proud of France’s open borders.
She said: “In France we want to have the most globalization that we can. We want to have the biggest exchange of people that we can. Maybe someday that will change, but now we have open borders.
“Having open borders allows us to travel more through the world and to find out more about what’s out there in the world.”AGENCIES
