Looks Are Subjective
I meant that I did get to catch Steve Harvey announce the correct winner.
Sure she's lovely and probably deserved to win but I actually liked the other taller finalists better.
But Miss Haiti was my favorite.
It seems that the Miss Haiti chosen to represent Haiti at the Miss Universe pageant is different from the ones chosen for the Miss World and the Miss International pageants.
I guess each pageant has it's own favored standard of beauty.
Miss Universe Final 13;
Five (USA, Haiti, Brazil, Kenya, Colombia) Black finalists out of twelve?
While the finalists seem diverse (as should be expected in a pageant that represents a world where Caucasians are the minority) - the phenotypic features of most finalists were still somewhat influenced by a eurocentric standard of beauty.
(*What's funny is that some in Brazil would be offended by a Black representative in the pageant.
