The culmination of Donald Trump's year-long pageant-palooza unfolded Monday (Sept. 12) evening in Sao Paolo, Brazil when Miss Angola Leila Lopes was named Miss Universe 2011. She beat out Miss Ukraine Olesia Stefanko for the title.
Rounding out her royal court are second runner-up Miss Brazil Priscilla Machado, third runner-up Miss Philippines Shamcey Supsup and fourth runner-up Miss China ZiLin Luo.
Lopes, a native of Benguela, Angola, is a business management student in Great Britain where she was also crowned Miss Angola U.K.
Judges of this year's pageant included Brazilian IndyCar driver Helio Castroneves, erstwhile news anchor Connie Chung, Brazilian model Isabela Fontana, actress Vivica Fox, "Real Housewife of Beverly Hills" Adrienne Maloof, Filipina singer Lea Salonga and 2003 Miss Universe (Dominican Republic) Amelia Vega.
