Beauty and the ... er Beauty

A 20-year-old dancer from Japan was crowned Miss Universe 2007 in Mexico, marking only the second time her country has won the world beauty title.

Dressed in a black, red and purple Japanese-style gown, Riyo Mori nervously grabbed the hands of first runner-up, Natalia Guimaraes of Brazil, just before the winner was announced. Then she threw her hands up and covered her mouth, overcome with emotion.


Meanwhile, a million miles away in the Thai resort city of Pattaya, (Miss/ Mister) Thanyarat Jirapatpakorn (centre) poses with runners-up Parawee Chapakorn (left) and Pimchanok Hongsopa after winning the Miss Tiffany's Universe transsexual beauty pageant.
