Miss Universe 2013 Winner Is Venezuela's Gabriela Isler

Flowing evening gowns, colorful national costumes and beauty from across the globe reigned Saturday night in Russia as the country’s capital hosted Miss Universe 2013 with an evening fit for a queen.

For the seventh time in Miss Universe history, Venezuela took the crown as 25-year-old Gabriela Isler was given the title of most beautiful woman in the universe in Moscow’s Crocus City Hall on Saturday night.

As the evening came to a close, the United States' Olivia Culpo relinquished the Miss Universe crown and placed it upon Miss Venezuela. Isler, who was born in Maracay, is an accomplished flamenco dancer who also works on Venezuelan television.

The big night began with 87 contestants looking for the title, but quickly only 16 were chosen to move forward: Costa Rica, Ukraine, China, Ecuador, the United Kingdom, Indonesia, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United States, Nicaragua, Switzerland, India, Brazil and the Philippines.

Best national costume went to Miss Nicaragua, Nastassja Bolívar, who is known as the 2011 winner of Univision’s “Nuestra Belleza Latina” beauty contest.

Only Spain, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, India, Brazil, the United States, Ukraine, Ecuador, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic made it to the top 10. From there only Ecuador, Brazil, Spain, Venezuela and the Philippines remained in the running for the crown.

Steven Tyler asked the top five contestants questions which ranged from "What would happen to the world if we could no longer use the Internet?" to the one posed to Miss Venezuela: "What is your biggest fear and how do you plan to overcome it?”

The evening’s soon-to-be winner responded: "We should overcome all our fears and this in turn would make us stronger. As soon as we overcome our fears, we can face any challenge."

A festive Lea Michele leads her fellow Gleeks in a Christmas-themed episode dressed as elves

By JULIET PAYLOR

Santa's little helpers: Naya Rivera (left) and Lea Michele got into the festive spirit dressed as sexy elves as they filmed an upcoming Christmas special at an LA shopping centre on Thursday

Santa's little Helpers sure have become sexier - and taller - over the years.
In an upcoming special Christmas episode of hit musical series Glee, the New York-based portion of the cast - Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Naya Rivera - don cute elf outfits as they enjoy a sing-along with Santa.
On Thursday, the stars were seen filming scenes dressed in their festive get-up at a local shopping centre in Los Angeles.

Naughty or nice? The 27-year-old clearly falls into the latter category, looking sweet in her green strapless bodice and red and green tutu, worn over striped stockings and green boots, and with a miniature hat

It's a Christmas miracle! Kurt (Chris Colfer), Santana and Rachel (from left) looked pleased as punch to stand before the man himself, Santa

Feeling the pressure: The actress, who tragically lost boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith just four months ago, showed the strain of her recent heartbreak with her shrinking frame

'She's not supporting other women': Lingerie-clad Selena Gomez hits back

By JADE WATKINS

Hitting back: In a new interview with Flaunt magazine, Selena Gomez hits back at New Zealand singer Lorde as she poses in a racy photo shoot

New Zealand singer Lorde recently dissed her song Come And Get It, accusing it of being 'anti-feminist' and sending a bad message to fans.
And Selena Gomez is certainly not taking the teen's comments lying down, slamming the 17-year-old in return.
Speaking to Flaunt magazine, the 21-year-old took a swing at the Royals star, saying she would no longer be covering her hit song in any of her shows.

Sexy: The pop star poses in series of sexy ensembles in the images taken by Amanda de Cadenet

Commenting on her remarks, Selena said: 'That’s not feminism. [Lorde is] not supporting other women. That’s my honest opinion, that’s what I would say to her if I saw her,' she said.
'I actually covered her song in all of my shows that I’ve done so far. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue that.'

The Duchess of Cambridge displays her greys

By OLIVIA WALMSLEY

The Duchess of Cambridge met members of the Poppy Girls, daughters of military personnel who are releasing a charity song in aid of the British Royal Legion, today at Kensington Palace

The Duchess of Cambridge was as elegant as ever today in a claret LK Bennett coat while meeting military supporters, servicemen and women, as part of London Poppy Day.
However, the glossy mane that inspired a million Chelsea blow-dries looked rather different: silver roots were clearly visible along the parting of her normally chestnut hair. She's also gone for a less bouncy 'do than usual, parted in the middle, rather than at the side.

Kate looked radiant in a calf-length red coat from LK Bennett as she met former and serving soldiers at Kensington Palace today

In fact, the flat, middle-parted style she's chosen highlights the silvery strands coming through at her hairline. Hairdresser Daniel Galvin Jr comments: 'If you are going grey, it is important to part your hair where the grey does not show.'

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travelled from Kensington palace to High Street Kensington this morning

The Duchess meets The Poppy Girls; Megan Adams, 10, Florence Ransom, 10, Alice Milburn, 13, Bethany Davey, 15, and Charlotte Mellor, 17, who beat 1,000 hopefuls to make it into the group.
