Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, who relinquishes her crown August 23 at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas, is preparing to leave her post with a bang!
The Venezuelan stunner will appear topless in Maxim's September issue, according to the New York Post. This comes after the minor uproar last year surrounding a controversial Dayana Mendoza nude jewelry ad that was discovered (below).

Word is she got pageant owner Donald Trump's permission before posing naked for Maxim. A good move, but maybe not totally necessary. The Donald didn't fire Carrie Prejean over her topless pictures ... just breaking her contract.
