 Crowned: Miss Dominican Republic for Miss Universe 2013 Yaritza Reyes

Six days ago on August 3 2013, a new Dominican beauty was crowned: The "Miss Republica Dominicana Universo" (Miss Dominican Republic for Miss Universe) pageant finals occurred at the Hard Rock Café Hotel & Casino in the Dominican resort town of Punta Cana.

Out of the 28 entrants, the final winner was 19 year-old Yaritza Reyes who represented the province of Elías Piña. The gorgeous winner is a statuesque 1.81 m (almost 6 feet!) tall. She's an actress/model. And now...a Beauty Queen!

The cocoa-skinned Yaritza will participate in the 62nd edition of the Miss Universe pageant, which as of today, is still happening in Moscow Russia--despite the petition to not have it there (Note to all my Gays: This might NOT be the year to attend the LIVE Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow Russia and just stay in the comfort of your own homes and watch it on TV!).

Yaritza Color: In all the 50+ years the "Miss Dominican Republic" pageant has occurred, there have only been a handful of non-White/Spanish girls who have won the pageant. Especially unusual for a country that--according to THIS--states that about 16% of the population are White (i.e. Spanish, European) and the rest Mixed (Black/Euro/Indigenous) or Black. The pageant has been hinted at as being somewhat racist or not necessarily indicative of the population of the Caribbean nation, in their choosing of the winners. But not this time kids!

Yaritza Gown: The new "Miss Dominican Republic Universe 2013" wore an ivory one-shoulder beaded and chiffon gown with sequined torso, high side-slit and flowing bottom half skirt section. It was a little "too Mucheey"--especially with the big drop earrings and multi-bracelets. Lets hope she edits her gown choice for the Miss Universe 2013 finals. Yaritza would look FABULOSA in a metallic/silver sequined gown like this one from...
