Chinese beauty crowned Miss World
Statuesque Chinese beauty Zhang Zilin has become her country’s first Miss World.
The 23- year-old beat her rival finalists from Angola and Mexico to take home the crown at the 57th edition of the beauty pageant.
“I’m the first Chinese to win the title and more importantly I won in my own country,” said Zhang.
The event, staged at Sanya in Hainan island, was beamed to a worldwide television audience of two billion people.
