Miss Colorado USA 2023 is Arianna Lemus

Arianna Lemus, representing Gunnison, was crowned Miss Colorado USA 2023 on Sunday, July 16 at the Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley.

The 27-year-old beauty of Mexican descent succeeds Alexis Glover and will now prepare to represent Colorado at Miss USA 2023 in Reno, Nevada.

Tianna Cooks of Cimarron Hills finished as first runner-up while Sydney Hella of Red Rocks, Brina Bily of Central Colorado, and Haley Lara of Brighton were the second, third, and fourth runners-up, respectively. 

The new Miss Colorado USA is a filmmaker, model, actress, writer, producer, and student pursuing a degree in pre-counseling at Capela University.

No stranger to pageantry, Arianna placed first runner-up to her predecessor during last year's competition. She also participated in Miss California USA and finished in the Top 16 twice (2017 and 2019).

Sunday's event also culminated with the crowning of Miss Colorado Teen USA 2023 Grace Covney who will now proceed to compete in the Miss Teen USA 2023 pageant.

The teen's runners-up were Taylor Chapman, Gabrielle Reyna, Alexandria Ward, and Sophia Jones.
