It’s good to feel that I was right: Miss Russia wins Miss World 2008

My choice was right. See my earlier post. https://bengwic.wordpress.com/2008/12/06/i-think-she-is-the-one/ I am happy to know that they have selected the best bearer of the crown. Though Danielle didn’t win…..Ksenia Sukhinova really deserves to wear the crown.

Miss World 2008

You should have seen the look on Miss India’s face when she landed up as first runner up. She was very good but she became too confident and overdid everything. It was again another miss for the Indian beauties. She was very pretty though. Tskkk…little disappointing. 

And here are the full results. Thanks to Globalbeauties for the blow by blow account.
