The new Irish representative for Miss Universe bears a striking resemblance to Brit supermodel Cara Delevingne.

Joanna Cooper, from Derry, is a dead ringer for Delevingne with her svelte frame, blonde hair, and strong brows.

Joanna was Miss Wildcard and competed against 21 other hopefuls to bag the crown at the final in the Imperial Hotel, Cork on Friday night.

She had her boyfriend and parents in tow for support and wowed the judges who included model Rozanna Purcell, SoSueMe blogger Suzanne Jackson and Big Brother personality Marc O'Neill.

The broadcast journalism student will now travel to Las Vegas on December 1st for the Miss Universe final  on December 20th which will be held in the Planet Hollywood Hotel and broadcast live on FOX.

Joanna also won free treatments from Therapie Clinic for one year, Gold Fever hair extensions, a Make Up Forever hamper, jewellery from Tower Jewellers, a modelling contract and wardrobe from Mac Doll Boutique.
