Philippines' Megan Young crowned Miss World 2013

Jakarta, Sept. 28 (ANI): Philippines' Megan Young has become the new Miss World by winning the crown today, while India's contender Navneet Kaur could only make it to the top twenty.

This is the first time Miss Philippines has been awarded the title. Last year's Miss World Wen Xia Yu of China handed over her crown to Young at a glittering ceremony held in Indonesia.

Though Kaur didn't make it beyond top twenty, she did bag the title of 'Miss Social Media', which Vanya Mishra won last year.

Kaur was expected to bring back the title home after a gap of more than a decade. Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra last won the title for India in 2000.

Meanwhile, France's Marine Lorphelin came second, while Ghana's Naa Okailey Shooter finished at the 3rd spot. (ANI)
