We always love to see some #BlackGirlMagic being spread around, and we’re especially here for a triple dose!

Last night, Cheslie Kryst, a civil litigation attorney from North Carolina, was crowned Miss USA 2019. Kryst, who received her MBA and law degree from Wake Forest University, beat out New Mexico’s Alejandra Gonzales and Oklahoma’s Triana Browne for the crown. Kryst will move on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant, which will be held later this year.

Did we also mention that HISTORY was made with her win, too?


Kryst now joins newly crowned Miss Teen USA Kaliegh Garris and reigning Miss America Nia Franklin in the winner’s circle, making it the VERY FIRST TIME that all three titles were held simultaneously by Black women!
