The new Miss Universe Great Britain 2014 is 24-year-old Grace Levy of Greater London who was crowned in Cardiff, Wales on June 21. She will represent Great Britain in Miss Universe 2014 pageant whose date and venue are still to be confirmed.
Amy Willerton, last year's winner and top 6 in Miss Universe 2013, opted not to attend the event to crown her successor. In her Instagram posted two days ago, Willerton cited the following:
#heartbroken sending all my love and thoughts to the girls competing in #MissUniverseGB. It's not my choice that I won't be there to support you all and hand my crown over. Women 3 times my age decided money was more important than dignity and respect for the contestants. I am so disappointed in their behaviour - that attitude will NEVER bring true success. For a company that claims to female empowerment I have never seen such hypocrisy.
