Previously, Voigt won Miss Teen Florida in 2018 and Miss Alabama Collegiate America in 2020. She also competed in four more pageants before running for Miss Utah.

Final Question

Noelia Voigt’s final question at the pageant was, “As the brand ambassador for Miss USA, what will be your contribution to the organization?”

The now Miss USA 2023 answered, “I believe the ability to connect with people is an incredibly important asset that a Miss USA should have. The United States of America is an incredibly diverse country, probably one of the most diverse in the entire world. So being able to connect with everybody is important. As a bilingual Venezuelan-American woman, I plan to connect with that community of people because the United States of America is a diverse country and a Miss USA needs to be able to represent every community no matter their background, their race, their ethnicity, anything and I would like to be that Miss USA.”

Miss Hawaii Savannah Gankiewicz won the best state costume award on Thursday. The inspiration behind her costume was the banyan tree of Lahaina. “The banyan tree of Maui survived the worst fires in American history in over 100 years,” Gankiewicz wrote on Instagram. “This costume pays tribute to the roots of Hawaii and everlasting cycle of life showing the indomitable spirit of the people of Hawaii.”

“The main thing that I will miss about this job is the people,” Romano wrote on Instagram on Thursday. “I have connected with so many amazing people who have all left a piece of themself with me. Who I am has slowly been molded through each encounter that I have had this year. Something about the sash makes people open themselves up to you and share who they are and their story. I have learned more than I ever thought possible from the vulnerabilities of so many strangers who quickly taught me deep empathy, love, and understanding for everyone around me.”

Who owns Miss USA 2023?

2023 is the first Miss USA contest organized by JKN Global Group, owned by Thai transgender entrepreneur Anne Jakrajutatip, which purchased the Miss Universe Organization in 2022. Laylah Rose assumed the roles of president and chief executive officer of Miss USA and Miss Teen USA in August.

“My goal as the head of this organization is to inspire women to always create new dreams, have the courage to explore it all, and continue to preserve integrity along the way,” Rose, the founder of VVV Global Ent., said in a statement.

This year’s sponsors include Portia and Scarlett, Ema Savahl and Diverse Style by Sydni Dion, who will provide looks for the opening number, swimwear and footwear, respectively.

“I’m so excited to be part of this competition. My collection represents the power within each of us and the potential for growth, evolution, and the exquisite beauty of self-expression,” said Ema Savahl designer Ema Koja.

“I absolutely love the creativity and the details that Ema creates in all of her pieces,” Rose told WWD exclusively. “They are high fashion and couture pieces. This is not the typical swimwear that we have seen in the past. They look like they’re made for royalty and these designs are truly fit for our queens.”
