During the competition, Navarrete strutted on stage in a violet bikini, as well as a long, red gown before she discussed the importance of the Internet and monitoring children's usage of it during the Q-and-A part of the program.
Navarrete — who beat first runner-up Yendi Phillipps of Jamaica and second runner-up Jesinta Campbell of Australia — is Mexico's second Miss Universe. She replaces Miss Universe 2009 Stefania Fernandez of Venezuela.
