And the winner of the 2017 Miss World pageant is...Miss India Manushi Chhillar. Stephanie Hill, Miss England, was the first runner up and Miss Mexico Alma Andrea Meza Carmona was second runner up in the 67th Miss World contest.

Miss World 2017 title goes to Manushi Chhillar of India in its 67th edition, making her only the 6th Indian to have won the crown. After a hiatus of 16 years, an Indian national has won the title after Priyanka Chopra in 2000.
