A 25-year-old Venezuelan television presenter, Gabriela Isler, was crowned Miss Universe in Moscow in a glittering ceremony on Saturday.

Judges, including rock star Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, picked the winner from a total of 86 contestants at the show, watched by millions of viewers around the world.
Last year's winner Olivia Culpo of the United States placed a diamond crown on the head of Isler, who wore a silver rhine-stone studded evening dress.

Isler's triumph was the seventh Miss Universe win for Venezuela, where beauty pageants are a major source of national pride.
After the show, she beamed and waved to journalists, wearing the Miss Universe sash and standing next to the show's owner, US tycoon Donald Trump.

"I feel a lot of emotions," she said.
"I'm still in shock. I feel so blessed, so happy to be here."
"It's been a lot of fun and a great success," said Trump.

In the decisive interview round that concludes the competition, Tyler asked Isler, who won Miss Venezuela last year, what her greatest fear was.
She did not give any details, but said: "I believe we should overcome all our fears and this in turn will make us stronger," speaking in Spanish through an interpreter.

Isler is now set to pose on Sunday in a specially created jewelled swimsuit that the organisers said was worth $1 million.
