Miss USA Alyssa Campanella Rings New York Stock Exchange Closing Bell (PHOTOS)

Newly-crowned Miss USA Alyssa Campanella performed her first patriotic duty on Wednesday, ringing the New York Stock Exchange closing bell, pretending to answer phones and posing with traders, at least two of which look like they've never seen a real, live woman before.

For the occasion, the redhead picked a black-and-white floral printed frock and sandals. She accessorized with her tiara and sash.

Take a look at photos.
