It's the result you've all been waiting for... the winner of Miss Universe 2015 was announced last night, and the tiara went to Paulina Vega, aka, Miss Colombia. During a live show in Miami, Vega was crowned Miss Universe after being awarded the highest score possible, 9.9, in every presentation. Miss USA Nia Sanchez was named runner-up and Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha came third. The final wrapped up a two-week long selection process, where the 15 final contestants - narrowed down from an initial 88 - enjoyed some shared experiences from playing golf to learning Zumba together.

The 22-year-old Vega - granddaughter of celebrated Colombian singer Gastón Vega - is a business student at Javeriana University in Bogota. However the win means she will now receive a luxury apartment in New York, a salary and a one-year scholarship from the New York Film Academy. Congratulations Paulina! Enjoy your 12 months as the new Miss Universe.
