The first black woman to be crowned Miss Universe Great Britain in the pageant's 66-year history has called it "a great achievement".
Dee-Ann Kentish Rogers, who's also a competitive athlete and recently passed her exams to be a barrister, says the massive response to the fact she's a black woman has "kind of startled" her.
"Although I've been preparing for this pageant for a long time, I've just been preparing as Dee-Ann," she tells Newsbeat.
"Now that I've won the pageant, I've come to the realisation that I've not only won the pageant as Dee-Ann, but as a black woman."
The 25-year-old from Anguilla, a British overseas territory, currently lives in Birmingham and will represent Great Britain in the 67th Miss Universe pageant later this year.
