Lebanon now has a new beauty queen.
In a ceremony on Sunday night in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, 24-year-old Sally Greige nabbed the Miss Lebanon 2014 title, beating out 13 other contestants in the annual pageant.
Greige, a civil engineer, vowed to use her new title to support women's rights.
"If I were to take part in one demonstration, I would choose to participate in a demonstration to defend the rights of Lebanese women," she responded to a question posed to five finalists, according to the Daily Star Lebanon.
The judging panel included prominent Lebanese figures, as well as politicians.
During the ceremony, in which Lebanese music sensation Nancy Ajram performed, last year’s beauty queen appeared to hand over the crown. Later, a clip of Miss Lebanon 2013, Karen Ghrawi, slipping on stage during the ceremony went viral.
The contestants were dressed in Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad’s 2014-2015 Fall/Winter collection.
Greige has now reserved her spot in Miss World pageant that will be held in London in December.
Among the gifts she received were a $300,000 apartment, a 2014 Audi Q3 and $50,000 worth of jewelry, the Daily Star reported.
