Leila Lopes – Miss Angola – was crowned Miss Universe 2011 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Monday night, beating out 88 other beauties in the 60 th anniversary of the world’s largest parade of beauty.
Leila Lopes, 25, is the first native of Angola to capture the crown – and strives to help his homeland leaving behind its history of war and poverty, which is also dedicated to the fight against HIV in the world.
“I’ve worked with several social causes. I work with poor children, I work in the fight against HIV. I work to protect the elderly and I have to do whatever my country needs,” Leila Lopes told reporters. “I think now as Miss Universe 2011, I will be able to do much more.”
The wonder was prepared during the Q & AA sample period (broadcast live on NBC and hosted by Andy Cohen and Natalie Morales Bravo, with veteran Connie Chung TV show and Maloof Real Housewives’ Adrienne among the celebrity judges) – and said there is one thing that he had changed his physical appearance.
“Thank God I’m very pleased with the way God created me and would not change anything,” he said. “I am a woman with inner beauty. I have acquired many of the wonderful principles of my family and I have the intention to continue these for the rest of my life.”
Leila Lopes almost rivals including first runner Olesia Stefanko (Miss Ukraine), and the second runner Priscilla Machado. Miss California USA Alyssa Campanella was not among the top five, that an American has not been elected Miss Universe 2011 since Brook Lee in 1997.
