Who Won Miss Universe 2015? Meet Colombia's Paulina Vega!

Miss Colombia Paulina Vega wears her crown and holds her bouquet of flowers after winning the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant held at Florida International University on Sunday (January 25) in Miami, Fla.

The 22-year-old beauty queen beat out 87 contestants from other countries around the world for the big prize. While the competition took place in 2015, it awarded the 2014 winner.

Coming in second place was Miss USA Nia Sanchez followed by Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha.

Paulina is a business administration student who had never competed in pageants before the contests leading up to Miss Universe. She plans on getting back to her studies and this will be her final pageant, according to the Associated Press.

“It will be a dream come true to represent the woman of today,” Paulina said earlier this week. “A woman that not only care about being beautiful and being glamorous, but also cares about being a professional, intelligent, hard-working person.”

    “Es una pregunta difícil” jajajajaja Pero FELICIDADES!! Después de 56 años, Colombia merecía otra corona. Venezuela tenía que estar en el lugar de Holanda. Todavía no me queda claro cuál es la mayor contribución que hace Ucrania… creo que le voy a volver a preguntar. :P

  • deadre

    I had to turn it off. they all had the same long hair, the same teeth, it was too much barbie…….

  • Anastatia Bagans

    Proud of being Colombian because of some chick being praised for her appearance? Lmao..

  • http://www.instagram.com/bismark_bm Bismark

    Yes… I’m proud of that and much more. And she is a true representation of my country, a determined and persevering woman!

  • Anastatia Bagans

    And how would you know? Can’t you say the same for all the other women? Lmao..the amount of praisment towards superficially is quite odd to me. It’s just a pageant. But cudos to you if you are.

  • Carmen

    She’s very beautiful, but nothing really stands out about her face. All her features look pleasing when it is together. And I’m not sure what her answer to the interview was…in fact all of the answers weren’t that great this year.

  • happy666

    She looks like a tran with all that make up on. These days women are extremely operated

  • happy666

    Its a superficial Tv show. Who cares about their intelligence? Since when?

    Yet you’re still checking a celebritiy-news related site and commenting its posts… Do you think that’s contradictory?

  • janiel lewis

    i don’t find miss Colombia beautiful, she looks ugly, she looks like a transsexual with a ton of make up on.

  • janiel lewis
