miss universo 2011

Miss Universe 2011, the 60th anniversary of the Miss Universe pageant, was held at the Credicard Hall in São Paulo, Brazil on 12 September 2011. Contestants from 89 countries and territories participated in this year's pageant, which broke the record of 86 contestants in 2006. Miss Universe 2010 from Mexico, Ximena Navarrete crowned her successor.
Miss Universe 2011 is Miss Angola, Leila Lopes, 25, 178cm, Hometown: Benguela
Angola is a hot favorite by so many pageant fans and beauty websites, most of them predicted her to make top 16 at least. Alhough some pageant fans criticised her catwalk and walking pace on stage, she won the competition fair and square last night.
1st Runner-up is Miss Ukraine, Olesya Stefanko
Not my cup of tea, but she is very telegenic and even Natalie Glebova, Miss Universe 2005, showed support and voted for her
2nd runner-up is Miss Brazil, Priscila Machado
Many Brazilian people and press did not support her because of her previous nude pics and her dishonesty, but her performance was superb last night
3rd Runner-up is Miss Philippines, Shamcey Supsup
My sentimental favourite Asian delegate this year, SupSup is really beautiful, both photogenic and telegenic, she's the most beautiful Miss Philippines I have ever seen.
