Miss Teen Universe 2023 is Mariana García of Mexico

Miss Teen Universe Mexico, Mariana García, was crowned Miss Teen Universe 2023 in a glittering final gala held on Tuesday, February 28 at the Gran Teatro CaixaBank Príncipe Pío in Madrid, Spain.

The 17-year-old business owner and advocate of Mas Vida foundation from Nayarit, Mexico succeeded last year's winner from the USA, Morgan Claycomb. She became the second Mexican representative to win the international pageant.

Vanessa Smith of the USA and Carlota Pop of Spain were named the first and second runners-up, respectively.

In addition to the crown, Mariana also bagged the Best in National Costume award wearing the beautiful creation of Mexican designer Paco Gaona.

Her costume called "Arcoíris" means rainbow and was inspired by Guerrero's low mountain, a state on Mexico's Pacific coast where the designer came from.

Following the event, Miss Preteen Universe 2023 Kennedy Ryan of the USA, and Miss Teen Universe Petite 2023 Sofía Anaelí Paoli Vargas of Puerto Rico were also crowned at the same venue.
