Leila Lopes of Angola is New Miss Universe
Miss Angola was crowned the new Miss Universe on Monday in Brazil!
Leila Lopes won the first-ever title for the African country and received the crown from last year's winner, Mexican beauty Ximena Navarrete.
The stunning beauty captivated everyone with her natural, exotic looks and her honest answer in the final question, which asked if she would change anything about her body. Leila, a 25-year-old business student, answered through a translator, "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."
Here are the runners-up:
First: Miss Ukraine
Second: Miss Brazil
Third: Miss Philippines
Fourth: Miss China
The event was hosted by Bravo executive Andy Cohen and Natalie Morales.
