Miss France Iris Mittenaere tops 85 other candidates vying for the Miss Universe crown.

Iris Mittenaere from Lille in north of France gave her country its second Miss Universe crown.

The last time was in 1959, more than 50 years ago.

Iris bested 85 lovely ladies vying to be the most beautiful woman in the universe.

She said in her bio, if given the chance, she would push her advocacy of dental and oral hygiene for the less fortunate around the world. 

How did she stand out? Here are her best looks throughout her Miss Universe journey.

1. National Costume, C'est Magnifique!

Iris bought a piece of her country’s exuberant culture when she wore an original Moulin Rouge costume.

That was actually the first time a non-dancer from the French cabaret Moulin Rouge donned the costume.

2. Curvy in Long Gown

The 24-year-old beauty chose a yellow-gold sequined number to flaunt her curves during the evening gown competition.

3. Red Carpet Look

Iris, a dentistry student and a savvy in the kitchen, walked the red carpet before coronation night in a simple but eye-catching House Of CB France nude dress.

4. Black Jumpsuit for Cool Baguio Weather

She wore this no-frill but classy black jumpsuit paired wtih black pumps in one of the pre-pageant events in Baguio City.

5. Black Dress Impresses in Closed-door Interview

This was designed by an "iconic leather luxury brand" Jitrois.
