Leila Lopes, also known as Miss Angola, is the winner of Miss Universe 2011.
During the question and answer portion, Miss Angola was asked, “If you could change one of your physical characteristics, which one would you choose and why?” Her response was, “I wouldn’t change a thing.” She says she is, “endowed with inner beauty” and continues to say, “I have my principles. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family.” But as she went to offer a piece of advice, she ran out of time, finishing her question with, “Respect one another.”
The special mention awards were handed out to: Miss Panama (Sheldry Saez) for Best National Costume, Miss Montenegro (Nikolina Loncar) for Miss Congeniality, and Miss Sweden (Ronnia Fornstedt) for Miss Photogenic.
The top 5 included: (fourth-runner up) China, (third runner-up) Philipppines, (second runner-up) Brazil, (first runner-up) Ukraine and of course, Angola who won.
