Miss Universe Indonesia 2023 is Fabiënne Nicole Groeneveld

Fabiënne Nicole Groeneveld edged out 29 other competitors to win Miss Universe Indonesia 2023 in a glittering competition held on Thursday, August 3 at the Beach City International Stadium in Jakarta.

The 23-year-old model and business graduate representing DKI Jakarta was also awarded Miss Confidently Beautiful during the preliminary competition. She will now prepare to represent Indonesia at Miss Universe 2023 in El Salvador this November.

Vina Anggi Sitorus was named first runner-up while Muthia Fatika Rachman, Angela Yovita Lillo, and Baby Kristami were the second, third, and fourth runners-up, respectively.

No stranger to pageantry, Fabiënne started her pageant journey when she previously clinched the title of Miss Global Indonesia. She went on to join Miss Globe 2018 in the Philippines where she placed in the Top 20 and bagged the Best in Evening Gown and Miss Photogenic awards.

Born in the Netherlands, Fabiënne grew up in a bicultural family. Her advocacy "Empower Now" aims to help women embrace their full potential and create a positive change.

This year's competition was the first edition under the new national director Poppy Capella. Reigning Miss Universe R'Bonney Gabriel of the USA was a special guest and passed the Shimmering Hope crown to the winner at the end of the event.
