A LOCAL beauty has triumphed in this year’s Mrs Europe pageant.

Davinia Baglietto has brought her crown back to the Rock after wowing judges at the competition held in Russia.

She was greeted by family and friends on her return last week.

“I am not only pleased but honoured to be able to take onboard the responsibilities of Mrs Europe 2017.

I feel privileged to be chosen to not only represent this title, but to also bring it back to my home town and highlight Gibraltar once again,” she said.

Close behind Baglietto were Russian Ekaterina Levina, the First Runner-up, and Bulgarian Iva Gurgulieva, who won second place.

Meanwhile, Maria Garsia from Spain won Mrs. European Union.

The beauty queen’s main focus during her year as Mrs Europe will be to help local charities in Gibraltar and abroad, focusing on the theme of domestic violence and Parkinson’s disease.
