"I am enthusiastic about this victory and above all proud to have participated in such an incredible and innovative competition that promotes the new frontiers of beauty, focusing on qualities that go beyond appearance. When I learned that in 2023 the Miss Universe competition would also opened the doors married women, pregnant women and mothers, I thought this was a very brave choice demonstrating progress, and it's also one of the reasons why I chose to participate this year. It is my honor to represent Italy at Miss Universe and I dedicate this victory to all women and to the wonderful, complex and magical world we represent.", said Virginia in her post coronation statement.
