Last night, Miss Universe 2011, Leila Lopes of Angola, handed over her crown to Olivia Culpo of USA, the winner of Miss Universe 2012. Only four black women have been crowned Miss Universe and Leila Lopes was the fourth. The other three ebony beauties are Miss Universe 1999 Mpule Kwelagobe from Botswana, Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam from Trinidad & Tobago, and Miss Universe 1977 Janelle Commissiong also from Trinidad & Tobago. We are hoping to see many more black women taking the title in the near future.
