Bella Molly: Maria Gabriela Isler, "Miss Venezuela" becomes "Miss Universe 2013"--Miss Universe Pageant Crocus City Hall Krasnogorsk Moscow Oblast, Russia
Last night at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow Russia, a new "Miss Universe" was crowned: Maria Gabriela Isler became the SEVENTH beauty from Venezuela to be crowned "Miss Universe"! Gabriella--or "Molly" as her closets of friends call her--was a front-runner from the minute she arrived in Moscow several weeks ago ahead of the international beauty pageant.
Here's Your Crown..Now, I Gotta Go...Gabriela Isler "Miss Universe 2013" trying to be crowned by the outgoing "Miss Universe 2012" USA's Olivia Culpo
Ooops, Where's My Crown? Gabriel Isler "Miss Venezuela" and new "Miss Universe" tries to get a hold of her slippery/always falling crown--
The 1.78 m (5' 10") tall beauty beat out 85 other gorgeous women from all over the world for the coveted international beauty crown. Once it got down to the Top Five Finalists, there were FOUR Latinas--"Miss Venezuela", "Miss Spain", "Miss Brazil" and "Miss Ecuador", and one from Asia, "Miss Philippines"...
As hosts Thomas Roberts and former Spice Girls Mel B. announced the First Runner-up and Winner, there was a bit of confusion and the winner--Gabriela Isler from Venezuela, thought "Miss Spain" Patrica Rodriguez had won, until well, Olivia Culpo (last year's "Miss Universe") came over and crowned her--Miss Venezuela--as THE WINNER!

Maria Gabriela Isler was crowned "Miss Venezuela 2012" in August of last year (photo above)--therefore she had over a year of training for this "Miss Universe" moment...
