Puerto Rican Beauty Stephanie Del Valle Gains Miss World 2016 Title

Miss Puerto Rico Stephanie Del Valle has been crowned Miss World 2016. The 19-year-old student was selected from 117 beautiful women from around the world who were competing for the coveted title.


Spain's Mireia Lalaguna, who won the title in 2015, crowned her successor at the lavish beauty pageant on Sunday (18 December.)
