Photo Gallery | PHOTOS: Miss Russian California 2013 crowned in Citrus Heights

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA - They started off from one end of the world, but came together on stage in Citrus Heights. Ten beautiful ladies, who were either born in, or have roots in Russia, competed Friday night at the Citrus Heights Community center for Miss Russian California 2013.

News10's Jeff Maher had the "difficult" assignment of hanging out with the ladies all night, and took pictures from his table. 

Of the ten women, only one would walk away with the crown and title of Miss Russian California 2013. And that went to 20-year-old Liliya Karavan, who was born in Vorenezh, Russia. Maya Galakhova, Miss Russian California 2012, donned the crown to her that night. And the people's choice winner, based on online votes, went to Aliona Kravchuk, who was born in the Ukraine, and was featured as a model on News10 at 9.
