A 23-year-old woman from Brooklyn, N.Y., took home the title of Miss America on Saturday.

Mallory Hagan, who entered the contest as Miss New York, won the beauty pageant in Las Vegas after tap dancing to James Brown's "Get Up Off of That Thing" and answering a question about whether armed guards should be placed in grade schools by saying that we should not fight violence with violence.

Hagan won a $50,000 college scholarship and gets to wear the crown for the next year.

Take a peek at some of her hottest looks, and let us know if you think that Mallory was the right choice to win Miss America 2013.
