Angolan Beauty Queen Leila Lopes Takes Home The Miss Universe 2011 Crown! Congrats!

Tue, September 13, 2011 9:40am EDT by 9 Comments

Miss Angola, Leila Lopes, stood out among 88 others last night, Sep. 12, in Sao Paulo, Brazil — and she definitely deserved the win!

Leila Lopes, 25, is the first African contestant to be crowned Miss Universe in over 13 years. Not only does she have a hot bikini bod — which, let’s face it, they all do — but her answer to a difficult final question sealed the deal. Keep reading to find out what it was!

When asked “What physical trait would you change and why?” According to the Associated Press, she gracefully responded,”Thank God I’m very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn’t change a thing”

“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,” She said. What a great answer!

In order to qualify, all the contestants must never have been married and never had kids, plus be between the ages of 18 and 27.

The runner-up to Miss Universe 2011 was Ukrainian beauty Olesia Stefanko, 23. What do you think, did the best woman win?

miss universe should have English policy when answering a final question.. its miss universe contestant should be able to communicate in English its an international language.. and it gave other contestant additional time when they are using a translator…

I am happy for her and she is really beautiful…but Miss Ukrainia should’ve won. She was really pretty and smart and was perfect for the Miss Universe crown.
I’m really happy for Leila though:)

oh stop it! she blew her response to her question! she lost points when she said that if her man really loved her, then he should also love her god! granted that was what she believed in and was her principle, it didn’t sound right when she’s supposed to be vying for ms. universe! if she didn’t add that quip to her answer, then she could have won easy! how’d you explain the leader of the pack and the fan fave to drop down to 3rd runner up? i wanted her to win, but when i heard her answer, i said: dang, she blew it! so, just suck it up and be thankful she made it on the top 5! had the questions been fielded before choosing the top 5, i bet she would not have made it to the top 5!

Beep : first of all respect her beliefs.. nothing is wrong with her answer, in fact that’s the best answer amongst them all.. it’s just that Miss Angola’s interpreter said it nicely that’s why it sounds good to everyone’s ear.. i bet, if she could’ve answer that question without an interpreter well then you’ll also be disappointed.. P.S. : Never Ever question other people’s belief..
