Miss Australia Universe 2013 Olivia Wells
A modern day woman, Olivia Wells is the first woman to be crowned as Miss Australia from the state of Victoria and she's definitely bringing her winning streak in Moscow where she will compete against 60 other aspiring women to be crowned as this year's Miss Universe. A student in Medicine, Olivia Wells defeated 29 other contestants who are vying the crown.
But in this year's tough competition, Olivia Wells can learn a lot from Kerry Anne Wells who won the title in 1972 against all odds and even her crowning moment was not shown on TV due to the pageant electricians strike. During the announcement of winners, the TV screen blacked out as her name was about to be announced as Miss Universe.
The Miss Universe 1972 is now a successful fashion designer, writer and commentator. She is an advocate for positive realistic body image and self-esteem and is now involved with BodyThink, a healthy lifestyle program that is designed to help Australian schools.
Miss Universe 2004 Jennifer Hawkins was the latest Australian title holder and was crowned as the most beautiful woman in the universe in Quito, Ecuador. Hawkins was an early favourite during the 2004 competition and became the first Australian to make the semi-finals since Voni Delfos in 1993.
She eventually won the crown wearing an unusual vintage copper gown that was deisgned by Bora and cost A$25,000. Jennifer Hawkins is now the face of Myer, an Australian department store and the host of Australia's Next Top Model.
With these two beauty queens to back Olivia Wells, she is no doubt a force to reckon with for the 2013 Miss Universe pageant.
