Miss Universe 2009

Miss Universe 2009, the 58th pageant, will take place at the Atlantis Paradise Island in Nassau, Bahamas on August 23. The event features 84 entrants from all over the World and is put on by Donald Trump's Miss Universe Organization. Donald Trump had intentions on holding the 2009 pageant in Dubai, but backed out due to the political instability regarding relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel and also for religious reasons. The event will be broadcast on NBC and Telemundo starting at 9pm on August 23. Below are pictures from the Russian and Ukrainian Miss Universe entrants. We wish them the best of luck!

Utilizing its nationwide grass roots infrastructure, the Miss Universe Organization is committed to increasing HIV/AIDS awareness and increasing awareness of breast and ovarian cancers. By forging relationships with organizations committed to research and education such as the Latino Commission on AIDS, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Gilda's Club, the women who champion these causes during their reign are armed to impact women today. The titleholders of the Miss Universe Organization personify the combination of beauty and intelligence that defines the 21st Century.
