With the new Miss USA being crowned earlier this week, we thought we'd take a look back at someone who is near and dear to our hearts here in Acadiana - Ali Landry - Miss USA 1996.

Ali Landry really put Breaux Bridge on the map, and visits often -  she is a proud Louisianian, and we love her for that!

Check out the moment she was crowned, and congratulations to our new Miss USA, Army Reserve Officer Deshauna Barber!
