It was the 60th anniversary of the world's biggest beauty pageant.

Lopes has taken the crown from Mexico's Ximena Navarrete.

The pageant aired live on NBC. More than 1 billion people were expected to have watched the event.

The Miss Universe contest started as a local bathing revue in Long Beach, California.

The contest to be the next Miss Universe was narrowed to 10 women Monday night, including surprise choice Miss Portugal, who only made the first cut because of winning an online fan vote.

Favorites Miss China and Miss Australia also made the top 10, along with home crowd contestant Miss Brazil. Miss USA and a host of Latin American candidates did not make the cut, with only Miss Costa Rica and Miss Panama advancing.

Contestants from 89 nations on six continents spent the past three weeks in Sao Paulo, trying to learn samba dance steps, visiting impoverished children and kicking a football around for cameras as the globe's biggest beauty contest is held in Brazil for the first time.

The pageant started as a local bathing revue in Long Beach, California, organized by a swimwear company.

To all the lovely and witty women, thumbs up! You make me feel so proud and happy as a woman. This we should really be proud of. Cheers to all the women out there.

Indeed, it was an event of overflowing beauty, wit, talent and grace. Congrats, everyone!

Congrats, Shamcey Supsup.
