Most Beautiful Miss Universe Winner

THE RUSSIAN GODDESS OF BEAUTY

Since Russia is hosting this year’s Miss Universe Pageant, I will be giving the spotlight to a Russian beauty who conquered the universe in 2002

She wasn’t in any pageant expert’s short list of probable contenders for the 2002 Miss Universe Pageant.

The pageant websites didn’t have her as a frontrunner.

The moment the Top Ten were called on pageant night, the breathtakingly beautiful Oxana Federova of Russia stood out.

She left the rest of the semi- finalists to slug it out for the runners up positions. 
It was all over the moment she stepped forward 
as a Top Ten Semi- Finalist
ALL- TIME HIGHEST MISS UNIVERSE SWIMSUIT SCORE



Such was the impact of Oxana Federova who mesmerized everyone and who earned the all- time highest swimsuit competition score ever since the pageant implemented the onscreen computer scores back in 1978


MOST BEAUTIFUL MISS UNIVERSE OF ALL TIME






In celebration of the 60th edition of the Miss Universe Pageant in 2011, an online poll conducted by a pageant website and voted by an international panel of pageant experts had Oxana declared as “The Most Beautiful Miss Universe of All Time” 


Her victory was received well and accepted by almost everyone around the world. Indeed, one of the few instances when everyone was in near unanimity with the judges' ultimate choice


WAS OXANA DETHRONED OR DID SHE RESIGN?

Ironically, she is also the first and only Miss Universe titleholder to have resigned or has been dethroned by the Miss Universe Org.

Oxana stated that she voluntarily gave up her crown for personal reasons, mainly because she wanted to finish her law degree.

At the time, she stated in an interview that she had declined to perform her duties because she was so insulted by her treatment on The Howard Stern Show.

She blamed the pageant organizers for not warning her of the sexual questions Stern frequently asks.

Her first runner up, Justine Pasek of Panama assumed the crown thus becoming her  country's first Miss Universe. 

DOCTORATE DEGREE HOLDER

A few months after she quit as Miss Universe, Oxana Fedorova successfully defended her doctoral thesis.

She officially obtained a Ph.D. in Civil Law from the Saint Petersburg University of the Ministry of Interior of Russia (MVD University)

After receiving her Ph.D., she continued to teach at the Saint Petersburg University of the Ministry of Interior of Russia. 

She also continued her career as a police officer, being promoted to Captain in September 2002 and Major in 2005.


VERY POPULAR FIGURE IN RUSSIA

Her Miss Universe triumph has made her a highly- revered celebrity. 

Public perception on her has been mainly positive as reflected in a poll conducted by the The All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion in 2012 where respondents named Oxana Fedorova the most beautiful woman in Russia.

Today, she is one of the highly recognized and very successful newsmakers in Russia


WILL SHE OR WON'T SHE?

Considering the circumstances behind Oxana's short reign as Miss Universe, I wonder if she will be attending the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant. 

That is something to look forward to

WHO IS OXANA FEDEROVA OFF THE MISS UNIVERSE STAGE?

Oxana Gennadyevna Fedorova is the embodiment of a multi- faceted and highly- accomplished contemporary woman

Aside from being a former Miss Universe winner, she is also a television presenter, singer, retired police officer, former university lecturer, actress, and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Prior to becoming Miss Universe, she studied and graduated from the police academy with honors and then worked as an inspector in a Russian militia for six months. Immediately after, Fedorova moved to St. Petersburg to study at the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) University, where she worked as an investigator at the Pulkovo Transport Police while studying.

As a police inspector
Fedorova graduated from the MVD University with a gold medal in 2000. After that, she entered a post graduate program at the same university.

While Fedorova wrote her Ph.D. dissertation on "Regulation of Private Detective and Security Activity in the Russian Federation," she taught Civil Law to younger students.

As Miss Universe 2002, she traveled to different countries around the world such as Kenya, Indonesia, Italy, France, Greece, Panama, Canada and Puerto Rico where she spoke and promoted HIV/ AIDS Prevention, the main advocacy project of the Miss Universe Pageant 

Everything came to an abrupt halt when she voluntarily gave up her crown for very personal reasons 

Oxana Federova has moved and as time has revealed, she did make the right decision. 

Well done Oxana! Cheers!
