Stefania Fernandez Wins Miss Universe 2009!

by at . Comments

The lovely Miss Venezuela, Stefania Fernandez, was crowned Miss Universe 2009 last night. The 18-year-old (!) is a worthy title-holder, to say the least.

She defeated finalists from Puerto Rico, Kosovo, Australia and the Dominican Republic. When she heard that Miss Dominican Republic, Ada Aimee De la Cruz, was named first Runner-Up, that meant Stefania Fernandez became the new Miss Universe.

Stefania is the second consecutive Miss Venezuela to win Miss Universe, and shared a hug with her predecessor, Dayana Mendoza, on stage after she won.

Receiving the tiara from Dayana, Stefania accidentally dropped the thing on stage. But with true grace and dignity, they rebounded as if nothing happened.

Stefania Fernandez beams upon being crowned Miss Universe 2009.

The second runner-up was Miss Kosovo Gona Dragusha, while Miss Australia Rachael Finch was third runner-up. Miss China Wang Jingyao was Miss Photogenic, while Miss Thailand Chutima Durongdej was named Miss Congeniality.

The top 15 finalists appeared in bathing suits before the final 10 were chosen for the evening gown segment. Pageant co-owner Donald Trump told reporters:

"I think this is the most beautiful group of women I've ever seen."

The televised event includes musical performances by Flo Rida, David Guetta, Kelly Rowland and Heidi Montag. We'll have a video of that disaster up later.

Stefania Fernandez was also named "Miss Elegance" "Best Body" and "Best Face." We're just hoping she doesn't add "Miss Nude Photo Scandal" shortly.

for me miss puerto rico should have won .
she gave a better answer and not to be all mean but
she was the most beautifull right next to dominican republic .
and miss kosovo wasnt half bad ; australia did deserve 4th though .
this was rigged, as you can see, and been in the news, the cards were messed upp . and even the host (guy) was shocked at miss puerto rico's place as 4th runner up . so like i dont know, miss venezuela didnt deserve that . its a bit suspicious that venezuela wins twice back to back ; she wasnt even that pretty .
too me she shouldve won 5th place instead of 1st .
soo, maybe its politics but after this fix, miss universe pageants are not the same, so i wudnt even bother to partcipate if i was those girlss from other countriess .

Stefania is beautiful and a she deserves to be Miss Universe 2009, because she looked very fresh and natural during the contest including her answer to the final question. All others looked forced. So let it go Asians, this was not your time. Colombians, your queen was completely off this year. She cut her hair, and then she appeared in the contest wearing artificial long hair?
Stefania is the winner because she is fresh and beautiful.

...to all those people whose behind of miss universe pageant,thank you and the place was very beautiful...miss Venezuela deserves the crown,i know that others would make negative comment but I'm just honest about my opinion..however I would like to suggest that the candidates should how to speak English because it's a universal language and it's should be requirement because many countries are watching the pageant. As for myself i don't what's the language of the candidate. How can a candidate communicate well in other people if she don't how to speak English very well especially that the big price for me was a two year study at film academy in new york...The judges should be very articulate in choosing the winner and it should be very fair..Beauty for me should be natural and there's no need for any surgery.

Rubbish! I watched the presentation show and saw the contestants in person, and there were wayyy prettier women than miss venezuela. Personally I think she looks fake.Not one person from asia got through to the top 20, but what-dya-know many ugly eastern europe gurls got through (like albania, what the..?!). France got through because one of the judges is french, south africa got through because the owner of atlantis is south african and a billionaire, and the latinas get through because they give money to the judges. HVenezuela winning again? Hmmm strange..I smell a rat. and she gave a answer I didn't understand let alone speak english. Jeez what is the world coming to?. and those tickets to the show aren't cheap! its just all a stupid fix at the end

ONLY GOD can really judge who is really for the title. I THINK MS. VENEZUELA IS ALSO GOOD. SHE'S NOT SO ATTRACTIVE BUT I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU REALLY LOOK DEEPER AT HER, SHE'S PRETTY AND ELEGANT. I`M AN ASIAN AND I BELIEVE that JUDGES HAD A REASON WHY SHE ENTITLED MS. UNIVERSE - SOMETHING MORE DEEPLY THAN WE KNOW. AND, I HAD OBSERVED, MS. VENEZUELA HAS DIFFERENT POSITION IN MODELING UNLIKE OTHER CONTESTANTS. JUST BE FAIR – THEY ARE MS. UNIVERSE – THEY MUST UNDERSTAND ENGLISH LANGUAGE BECAUSE IT'S INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE AND SHE WAS ENTITLED MS. UNIVERSE :D

I saw a special on t.v. about Latin contestants, esp. in Venezuela and Brazil they are very superficial, they get lots of surgery to enter these contests and also to get rich husbands.

In my opinion, the miss Venezuela Universe 2008 was beautiful, but this year 2009, I disagree, there are a lot of beautiful women, more beautiful than the Venezuela one. In my opinion, miss Australia, miss USA and miss Puerto Rico were the most beautiful. I can't believe how they chose the contents.
