0 Angola wins first Miss Universe crown

Miss Philippines is 3rd runner-up

Beating out 88 other competitors, Angola’s Leila Lopes was crowned the most beautiful woman in the universe during the sixtieth Miss Universe competition held in São Paolo, Brazil (Tuesday morning in the Philippines).

The 25-year-old Lopes, who considers herself “a woman endowed with inner beauty,” made history as she won Angola’s first Miss Universe title.

Philippines’ Shamcey Supsup was the third runner-up while Miss Ukraine Olesya Stefanko placed first runner-up. The second runner-up was Brazil’s Priscila Machado while China's Luo Zilin was the fourth runner-up.

The final question for Miss Angola during the interview round came from Lea Salonga.

Last year, Miss Philippines-Universe 2010 Maria Venus Raj created a major impact on the country’s Miss Universe record as she was named Miss Universe 2010 fourth runner-up.

The Interview Round


Amelia Vega: If you could trade lives with anyone in history, who would it be and why?

Miss Ukraine: I simply live my life and I’m very satisfied with it. But if I did have the chance to trade positions with someone I think I would choose Cleopatra. I think she is a very powerful and strong woman who is very much worthy of respect. And I think a woman could also be a leader like Cleopatra.


Vivica A. Fox: Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person you love? Why and why not?

Miss Philippines: If I had to change my religious beliefs, I will not marry the person that I love because the first person that I love is God, who created me. And I have my faith, my principles, and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God, too.


Isabeli Fontana: Nude beaches are common in some parts of the world. Is public nudity appropriate or inappropriate; and why?

Miss China: Every country has its rules and regulations and every country has own habits as well. We should respect them and be more understanding.


Helio Castroneves: What would you do to avoid fighting a war that you did not agree with?

Miss Brazil: First of all I would explain to people that the premiere quality of human beings is respect. And no war is based on respect. It’s always based on misunderstanding; it’s always based on a lack of education. So I would tell this person that they should respect each other as human beings.


Lea Salonga: If you could change one of your physical characteristics, which one would it be and why?

Miss Angola: Thank God, I’m very well satisfied with the way that God created me, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty; I have my principles; I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I plan to follow these through the rest of my life; and now I would like to give all of you a piece of advice: Respect one another.

It was only Miss Philippines who had no interpreter during the final round of the competition.
