Mallory Hagan is Miss America 2013. The reigning, beautiful Miss New York bested the talented field to capture the prestigious pageant last night!

Fifty-three ladies danced, twirled, flashed pearly whites, worked it in bikinis and strutted their best stuff in a quest for the tiara and the scholarship cash.

In the end, the 23-year-old from Brooklyn emerged victorious.

Prior to being named Miss America, Mallory Hagan attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, eyeing a career in global cosmetics marketing.

Her platform issue is child sexual abuse prevention and she plans to obtain a degree in cosmetics and fragrance marketing, according to her bio.

She is expected to spend her title reign on a nationwide speaking tour, raising money for the Children's Miracle Network, Miss America's official charity.

She was tops with the judges in the swimsuit competition Saturday, and she performed a mean tap dance to James Brown's "Get Up Offa That Thing."

Mallory answered a difficult question about whether armed guards belong in grade schools by saying we should not fight violence with violence.

Hagan defeated Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers, who took second, and Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, who finished third, to win Miss America 2013.

Congratulations to all! Check out more Mallory Hagan photos below!

I wonder if there is one young woman in the contest who has not had some kind of cosmetic surgery or breast enhancement to become a contender for Miss America. Mallory Hagan's swimsuit photo certainly looks as if she chose too small a top to cover what looks like a too large boob job. Spray tans, hair extensions, nose jobs, whatever, don't make them pretty; instead, some look world weary. This contest is all about looks and should be declared obsolete. It sends a ridiculous message to young girls, a very negative one.
