The 21-year-old from Holywood beat 26 other girls to win a stack of prizes, including a contract at Alison Campbell Agency and a year's worth of designer shoes and dresses.
Tiffany will go on to represent NI at the Miss World final in China in August, where she will compete against over 100 other regional winners.
The Miss Newry competitor is also a keen sailor and trained to compete in the 2012 Olympic Games.
Later this year she will sail across the Irish Sea with blind athlete Mark Pollock.
Former Miss NI Zoe Salmon and UTV's Marc Mallett hosted the ceremony which saw the University of Ulster Sports Science student come out on top, with Meagan Green coming second and Sarah Ennis placing third.
Tiffany will be the second representative from Northern Ireland at the world event in the summer, when she will compete alongside Miss Ireland Rebecca Maguire who is from west Belfast.
