Angola’s Leila Lopes was crowned Miss Universe 2011. Hooorrrayyyyyy, Angola! You’ve waited so long for your champion and here she is in all her splendor.

Do other countries brag to one another about being the home of “the hottest woman in the universe?” Kind of like the way men go on and on about their favorite team. Is that what happens, say, at the UN during pageant time? “Your Miss Australia has no chance against my Miss Angola. It won’t even be a contest. Just hope for a good incoming class for next season my friend. Did I show you my Miss Angola jersey yet?”

The beautiful Miss Lopes is the fourth African woman to win the Miss Universe title and the second black African woman to win. She can now add “first Angolian woman to be named Crush of the Day” to her already impressive resume.  Now there is something to brag about. Probably not worthy of a jersey, though.
