Miss Colombia Paulina Vega crowned Miss Universe 2014

Miss Colombia Paulina Vega has been crowned Miss Universe 2014 in a glittering ceremony in Miami, Florida beating beauties from 87 countries. Miss Ukraine has been crowned the second runner up, followed by Miss Netherlands, who was declared the third runner up and Miss Jamaica came fourth. .

Last year Miss Universe Gabriela Isler (Venezuela) came on the stage and crowned Vegas. The 22-year-old is the granddaughter of a legendary tenor, Gaston Vega.

Paulina Vega said on her winning speech, "It will be a dream come true to represent the woman of today. A woman that not only cares about being beautiful and being glamorous, but also cares about being a professional, intelligent, hard-working person."

Vega, a 22-year-old student of business administration from Barranquilla, Colombia, said that she would be eager to return to her studies in Colombia after her reign.

It’s unfortunate that Miss India Noyonita Lodh failed to bring home the crown.
