The next Miss USA is R'Bonney Gabriel of Texas.

Miss USA 2021 Elle Smith crowned Gabriel onstage at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada, on Monday night.

She will now represent the United States at the Miss Universe pageant on January 14, 2023, in New Orleans.

Her win also follows a history-making appearance: 2022 is the first year Texas is being represented by Asian American women in both the Miss USA and Miss America pageants, as ABC News reported.

During the Miss USA question-and-answer round, Gabriel discussed climate change. She also shared her belief that individuals can make an impact on the planet through their careers and lifestyles.

"I am a fashion designer; I actually made the outfit I'm wearing," she said. "I upcycle pieces and recycle different clothing to be more sustainable in my industry because I feel it's my duty. So I think that's something we can all look for in our certain industries and in our homes - to be more sustainable."

Gabriel first appeared on the Miss USA stage on Sunday night during the state costume contest.

She wore a handmade ensemble designed by Filipino designer Patrick Isorena. It had a strapless, crystal-covered leotard with flowers seemingly growing out of its bodice, and a full paisley skirt attached at the back.

The outfit featured more than 5,000 stones and blue fabrics meant to represent Texas' state flower. Its flowing design was also meant to mirror the movement of bluebonnet flowers in the Texas wind.

Gabriel previously graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in fashion design. She now works as a designer creating eco-friendly clothing, and as a model.

Her hobbies include vintage thrift shopping, doing yoga, sketching, and hula hooping.
