When Miss Universe Iris Mittenaere returned home to Paris middle of last week, it was kind of symbolic as she is also bringing back the crown last won by Christiane Martel of France some 64 years ago. In the same light, she also did the same for the entire continent of Europe since the last time was in 2001 with Oxana Fedorova of Russia – but a short-lived reign at that since she was stripped of the title. So if we really had to cite a completed reign, that would have to be Mona Grudt of Norway last 1990.
Anyways, Iris is thrilled to be back in France. And you can definitely see her excitement in the three videos below. Please watch.
