Miss A Coruna Estíbaliz Pereira Rabado Wins Miss Spain 2009 in Mexico
A beauty queen representing Spain's province of A Coruña won the title of Miss Spain 2009 last July 19th outside of the country.
Twenty-three year-old Estíbaliz Pereira Rabado was crowned in Cancun, Mexico where the pageant was held for the first time in the history of Miss Spain. As Miss Spain Universe 2009, she will be going to Bahamas to represent her country at the 58th edition of the Miss Universe pageant.
The new beauty queen is also Spain's representative to the Miss World 2009 in Johannesburg, South Africa and London later this year in December.
Rabado is a model and also a student of Fashion Designs. She stands 1.81 meters.
The crowning of Rabado shocked most beauty pageant fans around the world because she was never a front-runner at her national pageant. It was indeed a surprise for many pageant fans.
The First Runner-up was Carmen Laura García Fernández of Granada. She will represent Spain at Miss Europe 2009 which is said to be staged in Lebanon.
Why? Is Lebanon a part of Europe? I don't think so.
The Second Runner-up was Alejandra Echeverría Pedraza of Jaen and she will be representing her country at the 2009 Miss International pageant to be held in China and Japan.
Completing the Top 6 were the contestants from Sevilla, Málaga and Córdoba.
