Held at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center in Bali, Indonesia, the crown was personally handed to Young by 2012 Miss World title holder, Wenxia Yu of China.

The 127 contestants vying for the crown were introduced Saturday wearing evening gowns shimmering in sequins, many of them with plunging necklines and slits up the leg. Four candidates dropped out earlier, mainly due to illnesses, said Syafril Nasution, one of the local organizers.

Miss France, Marine Lorphelin, 20, took second place, while Miss Ghana, Carranzar Naa Okailey Shooter, 22, came in third.

Other entrants who made it in the final round of the competition are Miss Brazil Sancler Frantz, Miss Spain Elena Ibarbia, and Miss Gibraltar Maroua Kharbouch.

Megan Young made history as the first Miss World winner from the Philippines. The 23-year-old actress and film student bested more than 120 candidates from around the world to seal the country's very first blue crown.
