The World is yours...

Did anyone watch the 2007 Miss Universe last night? We didn’t, but we hear that the show had plenty of drama. Too bad.

Here’s what went down:
During the evening gown competition, Miss USA, Rachel Smith, slipped and fell on her behind and was later booed by Mexicans because of U.S.’s stand on illegal immigrants; Miss Sweden, Isabel Lestapier Winqvist, left the pageant after her country complained that it degrades women (why would they let her get that far in the first place if they didn’t agree?); the officials made Miss Mexico change her regional dress outfit after her original dress, which was decorated with brutal images of rebels in a 1920’s religious revolution being hanged or shot… um, that just sounds like it looks a hot mess AND scary! Protesters really got rowdy by wearing white dresses splashed with fake blood and sashes proclaiming "Miss Juarez", "Miss Atenco" and "Miss Michoacan" to draw attention to places in Mexico where women were killed or sexual abused.

Apparently, people were surprised at Miss Jamaica, the contest's first ‘Rastafarian’ (as per The Province
www.canda.com - do they really know if she practices or that she just wears locks??) and at Miss Tanzania rocking a baldhead. These Girlfriends simply chose not to have their hair fried, dyed and laid to the side.
Happily enough, Miss Japan Rioy Mori became the 56th winner. Her grandmother told her that she just wanted her to win Miss Japan. And look her, going all the way! This is the second time in the 50+ year history of the pageant that Japan won. The first winner (Akiko Kojima) was in 1959. Kudos to them! The majority of winners have been from a Spanish speaking country. At any rate, all races are beautiful. We love you all.

Until next time… be happy in your skin AND…

Be Seen at the Top!
