Deshauna Barber is giving us all kinds of life after being crowned Miss USA this past week. The 26-year-old beauty represented The District of Columbia in the completion and brought the prize home.
Growing up in a military family, she joined the army when she was 17-years-old. The army reserve officer and IT analyst is a graduate of Virginia State University. She plans to use her title to advocate for mental health treatment for military veterans.
She is the 9th black woman to win the Miss USA crown!
After surveying her countless flawless photos online, we compiled a few of our favorites.
She slayed in this photo in a beautiful floor length berry-colored gown, showing off her Miss D.C. sash and crown.
Beauty is clearly her name. Her makeup and hair stays flawless.
She also stuns in fatigues and other army wear.
“I think it was an amazing job by our government to allow women to integrate into every branch of the military,” she said answering the question during the Miss USA competition. “We are just as tough as men. As a commander of my unit, I’m powerful. I am dedicated. It is important that we realize that gender does not limit us in the United States Army.”
Her selfie game is clearly on point. Check out that lighting.
She kills a mini skirt.
Nude is a great compliment on her beautiful chocolate skin tone!
