22-year-old beauty Jimena Navarrete took home the crown last night for Mexico at the Miss Universe pageant.

Wearing a long, flowing red crown, Navarrete nailed her question and answer session. When asked about children using the Internet unsupervised, Navarrete answered: "I do believe that Internet is an indispensable, necessary tool for the present time. We must be sure to teach them the values that we learned as a family."

Miss Navarrete, who hails from Guadalajara, told reporters at a news conference following the pageant, "I did feel surprised. I was like in a state of shock. I want to give my parents a big hug."

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
