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. She was also a semifinalist in Miss Nederland 2011.

The 3rd runner-up is Maria de Luz Da Silva of Venezuela. She was Miss Mérida in Miss Venezuela 2009 and also represented Portugal in Miss Friendship International 2009.

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

     Completing the top 15 semifinalists were (in order of placement): 6. Thuy Hoang (Vietnam), 7. Nadyalee Torres (Puerto Rico), 8. Laetitia Wastyn (Belgium), 9. Alona Lyashchuk (Ukraine), 10. 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?
