  1. MANY MISS UNIVERSE WILL COME AND GO BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE OXANA, TRULY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MISS UNIVERSE OF ALL TIME

  2. She started the streak of stunning miss universe winners.
    MU winners from 2002-2005 always figure in the most beautiful lists.

  3. I predicted Canada and PR were going to win in 2005 and 2001 just by looking at their facial pics on MU page
    I guess that says a lot about their facial beauty

  4. Mexico 2010 Colombia 2014 and USA 2012 are also among the most noteworthy winners .
    Aside from Pia and Cat, my other favorite MUs are SA 2017 ( very humble) and USA 1997 ( very articulate )

  5. Have you seen Pia ‘s recent appearances like at Miss Indonesia etc ? If you don’t include her as one of the prettiest Misses Universe , I have a term for you .

  6. Kung sino mang nakaisip gumawa nitong “Ruth Ocumarez Award” nung taon n un… ewan. She’s pretty pero hindi ko ipagpapalit kahit sino sa Top 10 para makapasok cya… even Germany, Cyprus, and Albania… kahit pa si China, Canada, or India.

  7. @CatrionaFan wow, pag si Pia ang bet, blind nationalism agad. Pero pag si Catriona (na Pilipina rin naman) not counted as blind nationalism? ah gets, kasi nga nilagyan mo ng “Catriona is not even on my Top 5.” hanash, so hindi ka na blind nationalism ganun? Kung bet mo sya eh di bet mo sya, di ka namin pinipigilan. Pero hindi mo rin pwedeng pigilan yung ibang tao kung iba ang bet nila. Hilig mong mang invalidate ng opinion ng iba. Just say you’re biased against Pia and go.

    BTW funny how insecure you sound every single time you insert Catriona into the picture. Imagine, @Fabian wasn’t even saying anything to pull Catriona down *heck he didnt even mention Catriona at all* yet here you are with your never ending urge to put Catriona in every picture and exaggerating her greatness by putting someone else down. Ano ba teh??? Takot na takot ka bang masapawan si Catriona? Palagi na lang “mas” sya compared sa iba? Sino ngayon ang “blind” fantard??? I mean, honestly, Catriona is great on her own merits, so why do you feel the need to compare her to other ladies by putting those ladies down??? Yun na yun talaga? yun na ang limit ng knowledge mo?

    Lastly, beauty is and always will be SUBJECTIVE. Who do you think you are to impose your personal taste as the “objective” way of looking at beauty?? Miss Universe nga minimum of four judges ang magdedetermine sinong pinakamaganda eh, kasi nga iba iba taste nila. Tapos you expect na yung mga tao dito basta na lang makikinig jan sa pa-“be objective” hanash mo? I mean….sino ka ba???

    • @ CatrionaFan- Hoy bakla, anong karapatan mong idrag si Pia para lang umangat si Catriona. Kung ano man ang opinyon ng iba about other beauty queens irespeto mo, wag mamintas. wag mag namedrop ng candidata dahil hindi mo alam ang epekto nabasa nila to. Kahit si Catriona mapapailing na lang sa sinabi mo. Shut up ka bakla!!!

    • Mga teh, to claim Pia as one of the prettiest MU is blind nationalism. To say Cat is one of the prettiest too is blind nationalism. But to say they are one of the best MU ever, arguably they are. Be objective. Pwe!

    • Mas magiging questionable pagka panalo ni Denise dahil dalawang dyosa (Evelina at Oxana) ang mauungusan nya.

      Na miss ko tuloy katawan at pasarela ni Evelina. One of the best moments sa MU.

    • Siguro 1st runner lang sya kasi yung MU2001 was held in Puerto Rico na ang manalo ay si Denise Quiñones. MU2002 was then again held in Puerto Rico pero di na nanalo or di nga naging semi-finalists yung PR candidate kasi baka wala ng sumali pa sa MU kung back-to-back winners ay host country.

  8. Maganda talaga si Oxana! Para sa akin, yung interviews nya. Parang nakikipagusap lang sya sa host. Di pilit. Walang pressure. Sana ganun din mga mananalo nating beauty queens…

  9. I wish they offered the title to Miss Cyprus.

    I have nothing against Ms Pasek. In fact, upon reviewing her video statement, she is fit to assume the responsibility as she has lived in different countries making her a citizen of the world.

    • First runner-up po si Panama bakit ipipilit mo pa si Ms. Cyprus? May rules sila. How can you be so ……

      • but Miss Cyprus should have been in top 5 instead of South Africa or Venezuela …

      • No argument if siya ang first runner up.. whoever man kandidata yan as long as siya ang first runner-up.. kahot top 5 siya if she’s 2nd runner-up, kay first rummer-up pa din ibibigay ang corona. Ewan ko sa inyo

  10. Ilabas ko sana yung Top 15 Least Beautiful MU of All Time list ko kaso baka maraming magalit. Chweh!

  11. One of the most facially beautiful crowned Miss Universe of all time, I must admit. Pero yung eyes lang naman talaga niya ang nagdala. Sobra naman kasi sa panghahype ang mga vaklang pageant fans. Nakadagdag pa sa pagpapaingay sa pangalan niya yung dethronement/resignation niya. Well, anyways, subjective naman ang ganda so di na ako makikipagargumento pa sa inyo. Kay Karen Ibasco nga nadyosahan kayo, kay Oxana pa kaya? Chars!

    In no particular order, here’s my Top 5:

    NATHALIE GLEBOVA
    ANGELA VISSER
    DAYANA MENDOZA
    AMELIA VEGA
    JENNIFER HAWKINS

    Top 10

    MONA GRUDT
    OXANA FEDEROVA
    ALICIA MACHADO
    SYLVIA HITCHCOCK
    CATRIONA GRAY

    Top 15

    LEILA LOPES
    IRENE SAEZ
    STEFANIA FERNANDEZ

    SHAWN WEATHERLY
    OLIVIA CULPO
    PIA ALONZO WURTZBACH

    Tabulated and verified by accounting firm Ernst and Young LLP.

      • Hindi tayo pareho ng panlasa vaks. lol Kay Nathalie at Jennifer pa lang tumba na ang ganda niya (for me). Nadamay lang sa hype yang mentalidad mo na siya ang pinakamaganda. Kung siya ang pinakamaganda sayo, di kita kokontrahin dyan. Pero wala kang karapatang panghimasukan ang taste naming mga hindi nakakakita kay Oxana bilang PINAKAMAGANDANG MU WINNER. Dunung-dunungan. Chweh!

    • Akala ni Vaklang VINA YU barangay beauty contest nilista nya. 🤣🤣🤣🤣Feeling magaling mayaman si vakla. Gusing vakla! 🤣 🤣🙊🦇

      • Wag mo akong igaya sayo vakla na walang ibang kilalang beauty queens kundi sina Oxana, Catriona at Pia lang. Cheapipay na ‘to, limitado ang kaalaman sa mga MU winners. Search mo yang mga nasa listahan ko ng mahimasmasan ka naman. Hindi pangbarangay level ang ganda niyang mga pinili ko unlike you. Chweh!

  12. My top 5 most gorgeous are of course Pia and Cat (tied) , Amparo , Yvonne , Jennifer & Oxana

    positions 6 – 10 are:
    Kerry Ann
    Margaret
    Margarita
    Angela
    & Dayanara/ Dayana (tied)

  13. Considering the fact that Crocus City (Russia) hosted MU about ten years later (when Gabriela Isler won and eventually herself managed briefly by ALV), I wonder now if this was the catalyst for Donald Trump’s interest in that part of the world….

    Why is there no mention of the Howard Stern interview. If I were Oxana, that ALONE would be reason enough to brand all American guys as boors.

    And sufficient justification to junk the crown. Anyway, her homeland success seems enough many times over. Are standard pageant contracts so one-sided in favor of the organizer that the titlist has little to no right to protection?

    Mr. Tinio, was she a product of the same national pageant organization that crowned Popova Palina?

    And please ask Carousel to crown a European in the next edition of Earth. TIA. 🙂

    • Sana African beauty na super deserving katulad ni Miss Uganda sa Miss International. Wala pa kasing “outright” African winner ang Miss Earth.

  14. During the preliminary competition ng MU, ginamit niyang gown is yung sinuot niya during her prom kasi yun lang ang bitbit niyang gown for MU pero tignan niyo naman nakapasok pa rin sa Top 10 and eventually naging winner. Nabigyan lang siya ng advise na lalagpak yung chances niya manalo kung yun pa rin ang isusuot niya kaya inutusan niya yung friend niya na bilhin yang Gucci gown na sabi ng marami na parang nakatapiping tualya!

    The same scenario kay Pia na 11 hours before the preliminary yung gold gown na dapat isusuot niya ang luwag sa kili-kili (kung nakita niya yung selfie) kaya takbo sila Bianca Guidotti kay Oliver Tolentino sa Los Angeles para manghiran ng gown and ayon yung red gown ang nag-fit sa kanya and thankfully nakarating si Albert Andrada after missing the flight for the iconic blue gown!

    Usap-usapan din noon na pinag “force resign” yang si Oxana kasi after ng interview niya sa Howard Stern show na puro kahalayan ang pinagtatanong sa kanya, parang hesitant na siya mag proceed pa sa ibang guesting!

    • @ Claire IbbeTson My apologies to you. Our comments did not have enough time to harmonize on THAT interview. 🙂

    • I’ved read nmn that the Gucci white gown was borrowed from her roommate…

    • Pero si Pia, ang galing nyang sumagot. Taob taob ang Radio station duon sa mahalay na “ti- baluga”
      question. Pia is so refreshing in all her interviews.

  15. For me, there are a lot of miss universe’s who are equally gorgeous. Amparo Munoz, Porntip nakhirunkanok, Amelia Vega, Dayana Mendoza, Olivia culpo, luz Zuluaga, Nathalie glebova, Leila Lopez, and armi kuusela.

  16. In the end Miss Universe is a job not just a flashy title, that Oxana did not realize after she won the pageant. Thousands of girls wanted these title badly but Oxana took it for granted, agree?

    • Agree. Ang lame lang ng reasons niya na she wanted to pursue her studies and career back in Russia lalo at alam naman niya kung ano ang naghihintay sa kanya kung manalo siya sa MU, which eventually she won nga.

      • Halata ang bias against Oxana bakla. Tone down para magkaroon naman credibility statements mo. Pwe!

      • Her priority of her studies, the “insulted” interview from Howard Stern and others could be the reason why Oxana unable to finish her reign (and it is not even half of her year). Lots of girls are willing to sacrifice their career just to complete the reign unless the attitude problem could almost cost you to be fired.

  17. Most beautiful face of a Miss Universe hands down! Grabe. Mesmerizing all throughout the finals night. She was a trailblazer!!! Captivating….jusko mauubos lhat ng adjectives…perfect!!! Ahahahhahah….Diosa!!! Hindi na makatarungang nilalang…hahahha

    • This is true. Ewan ko ba saan nanggagaling ka-bitteran ng mga tap kay Oxana. Kung face lang, siya number 1.

  18. She was the first wearer of the mikimoto crown? I thnk so.
    One of the most beautiful indeed.

  19. I really hesitate to watch a MU edition where Philippines did not do well.
    Oxana Spain 1973 and Pia are the top 3 for me when it comes to facial beauty .

    • Pia? ULOL. Blind nationalism. Mas maganda pa nga si Catriona. And Catriona is not even on my Top 5. Be objective mga ateng.

      • @ CatrionaFan- hoy, ulul kang bakla ka. Kung di mo bet ung bet nung iba, manahimik ka at dont ever pull down someone para umangat yang idol mo. Hindi ineexpect na mag agree ang lahat sa ganitong usapan pero yang ugali mong na sabihan ng ganyan si Pia, anong karapatan mo? Baka nga si Catriona mapailing na lang pag nabasa niya ang sinabi mo about Pia. Shut up ka bakla.

  20. She’s really lovely…so gorgeous lady. Parang syang si Natalie Glebova (MU 2005), ang ganda rin ng babaeng yon. Sayang nga lang si Oxana, maybe she wasn’t ready for an MU job at that time, or maybe her heart wasn’t really into it.

  21. One of the most beautiful and the best ever finals performances of all time.
    She was at her most beautiful during the finals. No one can touch her.

    Nothing against Justine, but I think Ms. Cyprus was a better alternative.

    • @ Johnny YAASSS!!!!!

      Demetra Eleftheriou was THE BOMB. (Too bad my comment on “best bodies in MU history” is now history, as well.). 🙂

      Cynthia Lander-Zamora is also CALOR. Her rack would have been very good for lingerie catalogs. Her toned tummy offset by most-womanly-sweet curves is the kind you will think off long after you close the pages….

      Zhou Ling is THE BENCHMARK for MU-China. If the CCP (finally) wants to bag the Mouawad, they MUST find one to surpass her in ALL aspects!

      This looks to have been a REALLY STRONG European contingent, over-all. MU-France reminds me of Ashley Goode, who portrayed Jacqueline Forzane in “Once Upon A Time” (Chanel YouTube canale).
