Miss USA 2012 from Rhode IslandLast night a Rhode Islander became the new Miss USA 2012. It was epic!

LAS VEGAS --

The nation's newest Miss USA winner is a Cranston cellist who describes herself as a nerd and aspires to be more like Hollywood icon Audrey Hepburn.

Olivia Culpo shares Hepburn's European heritage and dark brown hair and soon they will share something else. Culpo said after winning her crown Sunday night that she plans to go to Tiffany & Co. in New York and recreate Hepburn's iconic opening scene from "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

Culpo, a Boston University sophomore, will take a year off from her studies to tackle her duties as Miss USA and represent the nation in the 61st Miss Universe contest in December. The 20-year-old said she wished she could have shared her crown with her 50 competitors during the pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
