BEAUTY CONTEST

Miss Venezuela Wins Miss Universe

Christmas already came and went in Venezuela, but there’s something else for the country to celebrate. Miss Venezuela, Gabriela Isler, won the Miss Universe contest in Moscow on Saturday night, taking the crown from 86 other contestants. Some Americans were onstage with Isler: pageant owner Donald Trump and judge Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. “I have a lot of emotions,” Isler said. “I can’t describe all the things I feel at this moment because I’m shaking.” Beauty pageants are considered a source of pride in Venezuela.
