Miss World 2008 Ksenia Sukhinova

The 58th edition of Miss World saw a new bevy of gorgeous young women coming from around the globe and  Ksenia Sukhinova, a 21-year-old model from  Russia, bested 108 of them.

Browned-haired and blue-eyed Ksenia was crowned Miss World 2008 in a glitzy event held at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa  on December 13.

Other winners:

First Runner-Up: Parvathy Omanakuttan (India)

Second Runner-Up: Gabrielle Walcott (Trinidad and Tobago)

The semifinalists were:

Espinoza Marroquin Anagabriela, Mexico; Natalie Olivia Griffith, Barbados; Alexandra Helga Ivarsdottir, Iceland; Tamara Almeida Silva, Brazil; Hannely Zulami Quintero Ledezma, Venezuela; Iryna Zhuravska, Ukraine; Josipa Kusic, Croatia: Brigite Santos, Angola; Alfina Nassyrova, Kazakhstan; Ivonne Orsini lopez, Puerto Rico; Patricia Yurena Rodriguez Alonjo, Spain; and Tansey Coetzee, South Africa.

On the other hand, the crown remains elusive to the Philippines as the country’s representative Danielle Castaño failed to even place as a semifinalist.

Miss People’s Choice Award, one of the Fast Track Events and the last ticket for Danielle and to other delegates, was suspended due to technical problems.
