Soooooo the winner of Miss Universe is Leila Lopes from Angola!

Wow to have an African Miss Universe is so heartening.  In fact, of the five finalists, none were Western looking e.g., blonde hair, blue-eyed, white skin.  (Countries of origin for top 5 contestants: Angola, China, Philippines, Brazil and Ukraine.)  Don’t want to sound naive but if Miss Universe is any indication of trends, it seems like the world may just be ready to embrace more varied types of beauty.
