Eight ladies drew first blood by winning the first set of 9 Special Awards in Miss Venezuela 2011-12. The recognitions should augur well for their eventual performance during the finals next month.
Miss Distrito Capital Gabriella Ferrari scooped two – Ms. Belleza Integral and La Mejor Presencia, while Milagro Manrique of Tachira was named Miss Naturalidad. Meanwhile, Astrid Lozada of Barinas won a well-deserved El Mejor Cuerpo Dermocell with her really shapely body. Andrea Baptista of Portuguesa was named La Piel mas Linda or Most Beautiful Skin. The fifth awardee is Blanca Algives of Guarico who got Ms. Rostro L’Bel, followed by Fanny Ottati of Bolivar getting Ms. Personalidad. Sara Coello clinched Miss Pasarela. Lastly, Ma. Gabriela Criollo of Zulia cornered the most number of online votes to be awarded as Miss Interactiva.
The four ladies above are definitely holding firm on their status of “favorites”.
But I want to holler a special mention for Tachira’s Milagro Manrique who is my #1 Pick at the moment.
Watch out for more updates about Miss Venezuela 2011-12!
