So it’s official: Iris Mittenaere is Miss Universe 2017 after coming through a highly-competitive field to take the crown.
But what do fans really need to know about the 24-year-old Paris native who came into the competition as the reign Miss France? Here are a few things for starters.
She’s Into Oral…Hygiene
The 24-year-old, who already has a science degree from lycee, has dreams to become a dentist, having taken up a course at the Lille 2 University of Health And Law.
She’s got strong views on immigration
Quizzed on her homeland’s open border immigration policy during the Miss Universe Q&A, Mittenaere offered up the following: “In France, we want to have the most globalization that we can, we want to have the biggest exchange of people that we can.”
She’s a foodie at heart
Mittenaere has retained a passion for all things cuisine, often posting images of her latest culinary treat and even sharing a snap of herself alongside one rather large pizza. Yum.
She Loves Sport…Maybe
In news that will no doubt be music to much of the male population, it would appear that the 24-year-old is more than happy to watch a bit of sport now and again, having shown her support for France at Euro 2016. Viva Les Bleus!
She Uses Her Power For Good
When she’s not busy posting some seriously striking images online, Mittenaere actively campaigns on the issues that matter, like posting a message of support on World Aids Day. Heroine.
