Fashion Designer R'Bonney Gabriel Is The New Miss Universe

Fashion designer R'Bonney Gabriel, miss United States, was crowned the 71st Miss Universe on Saturday night.

R'Bonney Gabriel is the first Filipino-American to win the title.

At the pageant in New Orleans, R'Bonney Gabriel was considered more beautiful than Amanda Dudamel of Venezuela and Andreína Martínez of the Dominican Republic in the final of Miss Universe 2023.

The competition was held in New Orleans, Louisiana. No less than 84 women worldwide competed for the most-wanted crown. Saturday night was the final day of the competition, with eliminations taking place.

R'Bonney Gabriel Became The New Miss Universe

When R'Bonney Gabriel entered the Top 5, she was asked, "Miss Universe recently made a change, allowing mothers and married women to compete this year. What other change would you like to see and why?"

R'Bonney Gabriel replied that he hoped the pageant organizers would raise the age limit for contestants.  

"I would like to see an increase in age because I am 28. And this is the highest age to compete. And I think that's a nice thing. My favorite quote is 'if not now, when?'. Because as a woman, I think age doesn't define us. It's not tomorrow, it was not yesterday - but it's now. The time is now!" Gabriel said.

Originally from Houston, R'Bonney is a model, fashion designer, and seamstress who prioritizes the environment in her work.

In 2022, the title was won by Harnzaaz Sandhu of India.

R'Bonney Gabriel's Reaction After She Won

"Houston, we have a triple crown 👑👑👑🤘🏼

Texas ➡️ USA ➡️ Universe

My heart is over the moon. These past 15 days have changed my life. I carry this new title with the strength of all the incredible women I have come across this month. It is an honor to be here, and it is my mission to make the universe proud. 🙏🏼

Thank you to everyone who has believed in me.
