According to the Miss Universe website, Iris, 23, was born in Lille, France and has been pursuing a degree in dentistry for the last 5 years.

There was a light moment in the proceedings when Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach tapped Harvey on the shoulder to hand him a pair of black-rimmed reading glasses before he announced the victor.

After last year's debacle, Harvey blamed his blunder on misreading a cue card and invited both Wurtzbach and Gutierrez onto separate episodes of "The Steve Harvey Show" to apologize to them.

During the 65th Miss Universe pageant on Sunday night - or, technically, early Monday morning in the Philippines, from where it aired live - Miss France, Iris Mittenaere, was successfully crowned as the new tiara victor. Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier used the night to talk about the strength she feels her country has and how important it is for women to be themselves and make the most out of life.

Iris Mittenaere is Miss Universe 2017.
