Twenty-three-year-old Rathi Menon was crowned Miss Universe Singapore 2014 on Friday night.
The pharmacy technician walked away the winner after beating out 11 other finalists.
Rathi also bagged two subsidiary awards - Miss Brilliance and Miss Personality.
The first runner-up was 20-year-old model and entrepreneur Arrian North, while law student Ijechi Nwaozuzu, also 20, was the second runner-up.
Adopting a new concept, this year's Miss Universe Singapore finals incorporated elements of a modelling competition. Instead of a beauty queen, judges were on a look out for a "spokesmodel", a beauty who is a good role model for other women.
Rathi will represent Singapore in the Miss Universe Final in December. The date and venue of the pageant have yet to be confirmed.
