China's Wen Xia Yu was crowned the Miss World 2012 at a gala ceremony here Saturday.
Wales' Sophie Moulds was adjudged the first runner-up, while Australia's Jessica Kahawaty was the second runner-up.
India's Vanya Mishra made it to the top seven spot but failed to progress further. She, however, did bag the titles of Miss Social Media and Miss Beauty with a Purpose.
In the semi-finals, the contestants were asked to perform on the music of their country and Vanya chose to dance on "Dil cheez kya hai" from 1981 film "Umrao Jaan", which landed her a spot in the top seven finalists.
Last year's winner, Venezuela's Ivian Sarcos, crowned Wen as the new Miss World at the glittering ceremony held in Dongsheng Fitness Center Stadium here.
The competition saw 116 countries competing for the title.
