Miss USA takes home Miss Universe 2012 crown
Las Vegas, NE, United States (4E) – Miss USA Olivia Culpo took home the coveted Miss Universe crown Wednesday in Las Vegas as she won over 88 beauty queens from all over the world.
The 20-year-old beauty looked stunning in her red velvet evening gown as she was asked whether she has done something she regretted.
The Boston University sophomore’s winning answer was, “I’d like to start off by saying that every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you’ll learn from it. That’s just life. But something I’ve done I’ve regretted is probably picking on my siblings growing up, because you appreciate them so much more as you grow older.”
The Rhode Island native is the middle among five children of musician parents. The five siblings each studied a different instrument, and Ms. Universe Culpo’s choice instrument was the cello.
In her short bio in the Miss Universe website, Culpo is said to have ‘movies, museums, concerts, and making people laugh’ as her interests and that one day, she hopes to land a career in either film or television.
Being the Miss Universe, Culpo is said to receive an undisclosed salary, a plush new wardrobe and beauty essentials, plus a luxury apartment in New York.
