To celebrate its Diamond Anniversary, the Miss World franchise returned to the city where it all began.  In a glamorous pageant night held at Earls Court, London, a 21-year old lady from Venezuela was crowned Miss World 2011.   Miss Ivian Lunasol Sarcos Colmenares, studied in a nunnery for five years and eventually worked for a broadcasting company.  Orphaned at an early age, she grew up wanting to help people who are in need.  The Miss World pageant has evolved to become a beauty pageant with a cause (aptly coined as “Beauty With A Purpose”) whereby candidates must demonstrate their involvement in charity work.  Completing her court are Miss Puerto Rico Amanda Perez and Miss Philippines Gwendolyn Gaille.
