In the end, she went head to head with Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier at the Q&A portion. "When you fail, you have to be elevated, and you have to try again and keep going. If tonight I am not the winner, I will still have the great honor of being one of the finalists," says Miss France, which landed her the title of Miss Universe 2016.

She first impressed the judges with her winner-worthy golden evening gown in the preliminaries. She was also the only competitor who wore single-soled heels while the rest were in platform heels. Big plus in our book!

Iris further proved her point with her applaudable swimsuit body.
