The Yamamay swimsuit worth $1 million was made entirely in Italy and consists of a revealing, cutaway, all-white ensemble, featuring an emerald pendant with diamond and ruby swirls throughout the piece, intended to subtly represent the Italian flag. According to Miss Universe organizers, the swimsuit has 900 stones sewn in.
"It's very simple but very elegant, so it's like me," Isler said of the swimsuit, according to Agence France-Presse
It is unclear whether or not the suit is for sale, however due to its value armed guards were reportedly near it at all times.
"We do have armed guards, so don't get any ideas," Miss Universe President Paula Shugart said when asked about its value, AFP reported.
The armed guards were apparently not noticeable, leading Isler to joke, "I'm still asking: where are those guards, because I'll run with it."
The Miss Universe competition, which was held in Moscow's Crocus City Hall, was the first in its 61-year history to be held in Russia. Isler is the third Miss Universe from Venezuela in six years.
"I have a lot of emotions. I can't describe all the things that I feel at this moment because I'm shaking," Isler told reporters immediately after being crowned. "I'm still in shock. I feel so blessed, so happy to be here."
Isler, who was chosen over 85 other women, had reportedly stayed up the entire night after winning the crown speaking with friends and family on the phone.
"I feel very happy to share my first day as Miss Universe," the 25-year-old Isler told reporters the following day after winning the crown. "I'm a simple girl. I am just come to have fun, to enjoy the moment — and here I am."
