Last night twitter was on fire as we all gave our opinions on who should win the title of Miss Universe 2011. Over 85 women all over the globe competed in Sao,Brazil to take home the prestige title but Miss Angola won! I loved her from the first time I sat eyes on her but I just didn’t think she would win. She was definitely in my top 5 and I was even in shock when they announced that this African beauty actually won!
My top 2 picks were Miss Venezuela and Miss Columbia. They just had that sparkle and look that judges love. Leila Lopes is 25 years old and its the 1st time an Angolan has took home the title! She’s said to be 5 ft 10 1/2 inches tall and the fourth african american to win the title! 1st runner up went to Miss Ukraine who was just as stunning.
“I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life,” Lopes said after she won the blinged out crown. Miss Songola also won a prize pack full of goodies which included a years supply of hair products, a custom diamond tiara and jewelry,a years supply of shoes courtesy of Chinese Laundry, a evening wardrobe from Sherri Hill(yeah thats my sponsor), a years supply of OPI nail polish(yeah thats my sponsor too),a scholarship for a year to New York Film Academy,luxury apartment accommodations, a salary from Miss Universe for a year, fitness membership,modeling portfolio from Fadil Bersiha etc.
I have my fingers and toes crossed because I hope that she can make an appearance in Jamaica next week, at the Global International Beauty Pageant. I will be there too. It would be pinktastic if I could meet and interview her! I am so proud of her and I send many blessings her way! Congrats girly you deserve it! xoxo
