Stefania Fernandez crowned Miss Universe 2009


Miss Venezuela was the fairest of them all, again. Venezuelan Stefania Fernandez won the 2009 Miss Univere pageant in the Bahamas on Sunday night.

Dressed in a flowing red gown, Fernandez embraced runner up Miss Dominican Republic as the announcement was made, and received the crown from last year’s winner, Dayana Mendoza, of Venezuela.

The other top-five finalists were Miss Kosovo, Miss Australia and Miss Puerto Rico. Venezuela, a beauty-obsessed South American country, has won the Miss Universe pageant six times.
