On September 12, 2011 Leila Lopes made history as the first woman from Angola to win the Miss Universe crown. The 26-year-old beauty quickly won over the capacity crowd in Sao Paulo, Brazil, as the audience chant for “Angola” grew louder making it a struggle for the competition’s hosts to be heard. Leila is only the fourth woman from Africa in the pageant’s sixty year history to win the Miss Universe title.

Currently the longest reigning queen, Leila Lopes uses her title to champion HIV/AIDS prevention and has shown the world that there is more to Africa than poverty, hunger and disease.

This year is no different,89 hopefuls from across the globe gathered in the world’s most glamorous city-Las Vegas, at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino to compete for the title of Miss Universe 2012. It’s the night you don’t want to miss, and it will be the evening to witness the crowning of the world’s most beautiful woman!
