Written By: Candice Cole
Former Miss New York, Mallory Hagan took home the Miss America crown Saturday night. Hagan, who lives in Brooklyn, held the title of Miss New York for three years in a row. She won the coveted title out of 53 women. Oklahoma's Alicia Clifton was the runner-up for the crown. We caught up with the beauty queen Friday night in Las Vegas before the competition where she told us, "It just means a lot to me to be able to represent such a diverse state. And, I think that the state of New York is more what I'm like as a person, and so its an incredible feeling to know that there are so many different cultures and people behind me there."
