For 112 Miss World 2011 contestants, Sunday evening ended with sighs as they hung up their evening gowns and heels and finally took a breath after months of grueling preparation for the world’s most famous beauty pageant. But for one lucky winner, the journey is just beginning. Give it up for Miss World 2011 winner – Miss Venezuela, Ivian Lunasol Sarcos Colmenares! The 21 year old was orphaned as a child and used to dream about being a nun! Well, you’re a far way off from that life goal, Ivian!
For the last round of the evening, the Miss World 2011 winner wore a baby pink gown with a crystal encrusted bodice and a feathery skirt that swept the floor from the back but was cut to knee-length on the front, teamed with matching baby pink heels with silver detailing. While the Miss World 2011 winner gasped and cried in disbelief when she was announced the winner, sources say that she was actually a favorite for the title from the very beginning. The Miss World 2011 winner left quite an impression on the judges in the categories of talent, sport, beach beauty, top model and beauty with a purpose – although she did not win any of those titles. Well, who cares, she won the most important one.
The Miss World 2011 winner Ivian Lunasol Sarcos Colmenares lost her parents at a very young age and actually spent 5 years studying at a nunnery. But thankfully for her and for the pageant world, she chose later to get a degree in human resources and worked at a broadcasting company before she was crowned the Miss World 2011 winner.
In her winning speech, the Miss World 2011 winner said that the title means everything to her as it would now give her the opportunity to help people in need, especially orphans like her, teens, and the elderly. She said she would take full advantage of being the Miss World 2011 winner and make sure that she used her title and position in a productive manner.
The crowning of this incredible beauty with brains and a heart marks a fitting end to the diamond anniversary of the Miss World pageant. The event held at Earls Court in London and anchored by Angela Chow and Jason Cook was the most glamorous one to date. A breathtaking performance by Britain’s foremost street-dancing group Diversity kicked off the festivities as the contestants sashayed on stage and were introduced to an audience that was uninhibited in its applause.
As the elimination rounds progressed and fewer and fewer girls remained on stage, millions around the world tuned in to the live broadcast of the event with bated breath at the edge of their seats to see who would be the Miss World 2011 winner. The last 7 semi-finalists included Venezuela (duh), Korea, Scotland, England, South Africa, Puerto Rico and Philippines. You know who the Miss World 2011 winner is. The first runner up was Miss Philippines Gwendoline Ruais, while Miss Puerto Rico Amanda Perez was second runner up. The Miss World 2011 winner was crowned by last year’s Miss World – Alexandria Mills of USA.
As is tradition, the glorious night ended with the Miss World flag being passed on to the next host country. The event will be held again next year in Ordos, a city in Mongolia, China. But until then, keep an eye on Miss World 2011 winner to see whether or not she takes advantage of this covetous title.
