The world's biggest beauty pageant for transgender women, Miss International Queen, has officially ended its 11th year. And the winner is —

Trixie Maristela from the Philippines. 

"The reason why I want to join Miss International Queen 2015 is I believe in its vision of uplifting the trans community by staging an international beauty pageant and I want to be part of it," she said.

Maristela ended up being the biggest part of it — the winner

The first runner-up was Valesca Dominik Ferraz from Brazil. 

The second runner-up was Sopida Siriwattananukoon from Thailand. 

Although we gotta say, there were some interesting outfits along the way

Many of the more festive outfits came from the nationality-themed costume contest. There were also more traditional rounds, like swimsuit and evening gown. Although, even with swimsuits, we aren't sure about those hats.

Last year, Venezuelan contestant Isabella Santiago won the competition.
