15. December 2010 by Michelle 0 Comments

Thousands gathered in Kiev on Saturday to watch as 15 beautiful Ukrainian women competed as finalists in the Miss Ukraine Universe pageant.

 

Several international celebrities sat on the panel of judges, including the lovely Danish tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki, Russian-born Australian boxing champion Kostya Tszyu, Albanian-American fashion photographer Fadil Berisha, and British singer Sonique. While it was a very close competition, the judges ultimately decided on 22-year-old Odessa native Olesya Stefanko as the winner. The reigning Miss Ukraine Universe 2010, Anna Poslavska, transferred the tiara and wished her successor the best.

 

A true beauty, Olesya is no stranger to pageants. She was named Miss Odessa National Law Academy in 2008 while she was a student at the Institute of Prosecution and Investigation, and she also achieved the title of Miss Academia 2009. This year, she competed for Miss South Ukraine and Miss Odessa, but it was the Miss Ukraine Universe crown that she dreamed of winning.

 

She received gift packages of jewelry worth $20,000, plus all five finalists were awarded with trips to Cannes, France. Olesya is currently a model at the Art Podium Model Agency where an extensive portfolio of her photos can be found. Now she can begin preparing to make her country proud at the Miss Universe pageant next year.
