BALI, Indonesia (September 30, 2013)--Miss Philippines Megan Young was crowned Miss World this weekend on Indonesia's resort island of Bali, where the contest's final round was moved because of protests by Muslim hardliner groups.
Security was tight as the 127 contestants vying for the crown were introduced Saturday wearing evening gowns shimmering in sequins, many of them with plunging necklines and slits up the leg.
The Islamic Defenders Front complained that the pageant showed too much skin and went against Islamic teachings.
The new Miss World, who's 23, was born in the United States, but moved to the Philippines when she was 10.
She has appeared in films and as a television host.
