The 60th Miss USA pageant took place last night at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip and a queen was crowned! Alyssa Campanella, Miss California, took home the crown last night beating out 50 other pageant contestants. The 21-year old Auburn-haired beauty was born in New Jersey but now lives in Los Angeles. The self-proclaimed “history geek” looked gorgeous as she walked the stage in an emerald gown during the evening gown segment, and a blue and white polka-dotted bikini during the swimsuit portion.
Following in the footsteps of Miss USA 2010 Rima Fikah, Campanella will compete in this year’s Miss Universe pageant in September in Brazil.
Congratulations! Let’s see you do some good around the world with this new title!
