No bigz.

At the Miss World Pageant on Saturday, Myrie became the first ever contestant to rock her hair in locs during the competition's history.

"My life has always been rooted in the arts and culture, which has significantly impacted my own personal style," Myrie told Jamaica Observer. "So even when I select glam, it has to have an ethnic, urban twist to it."

The Caribbean beauty wore her gorgeous locs in a regal, high bun, while her opponents went the long and silky route.

She also came in fourth place and was the only black woman to land in the top five.
