Cape Town - It’s been a whirlwind for newly crowned Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

She won the coveted title in a glamorous event in Las Vegas last weekend – and her schedule has been jam-packed since.

She’s kept us glued to our screens living vicariously through her as she posts all of her adventures abroad.

The 22-year-old is now based in New York but is doing lots of travelling as part of her duties as Miss Universe.

From media interviews to sight-seeing, exploring the New York cuisine and her first international trip as the reigning queen – we take a look at what she’s been up to in the last 10 days. 

It all started with packing her things and making her move to the Big Apple where she’ll be based for the next year.

Getting glammed up is but one of the many perks…
