Gibraltar is the new Miss World
JOHANNESBURG – (UPDATE) Miss Gibraltar Kaiane Aldorino was crowned Miss World 2009 on Saturday, outshining 111 other hopefuls at a glittering ceremony with a distinctly African flavour.
“Thank you South Africa, this is the most wonderful moment of my life,” said a tearful Aldorino, a 22-year-old human resources clerk.
Confetti rained down on the stage as the beauty from the tiny British territory of fewer than 30,000 people accepted the crown in South Africa.
Mexico’s Perla Beltran came second, with South African entry Tatum Keshwar taking third place.
