Leila Lopes, who was crowned Miss Universe 2011 by the former titleholder, Ximena Navarrete of Mexico in São Paulo, Brazil on 12 September 2011, is the 60th titleholder and the first Angolan to win the title. She is also the second African Miss Universe title winner of African descent following Botswana’s Mpule Kwelagobe who became Miss Universe 1999. However, Lopes is the fourth African beauty to win the title so far since the beginning of the pageant, the others being from South Africa (1978), Namibia (1992) and Botswana (1999).
