in Dortmund, Germany on March 10th. The 2nd runner-up is Melina Ramirez Serna of Colombia (left) and the 1st runner-up is Malaika Mushandu of Zimbabwe (right). A pageant veteran, Voce represented Italy in Miss International 2008 and Miss Earth 2009.

The 4th runner-up is Celine Alroe of Denmark.

Kelly Fonseca Rodrigues (Brazil), 11. Nayeli Quiroga Via (Bolivia), 12. Brianna Ortiz (Cuba),  13. Macarena Francia (Argentina), 14. Loreal Laria Magro (South Africa).

     If I had been one of the judges, I would have replaced Venezuela with Vietnam (who won the Best Catwalk Award) and who looked like a real top model compared to the rest of finalists! Wouldn't you agree?
