During the 93rd annual Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, 53 contestants competed in luminous evening gowns and flashy swimsuits. Take a look at this year's winner and the other lovely ladies who vied for the crown.

Davuluri is the second Miss Syracuse to win the Miss America crown. Coincidentally, the first one to do so also raised some eyebrows because of her race. In 1983, Vanessa Williams was the first black woman to win Miss America.
