Jakelyne Oliveira, the representative of Mato Grosso, was crowned Miss Brazil Universe 2013. She will represent her country in Miss Universe 2013, in Russia, in November.
The new Miss Brazil Universe is 20 years old, 1.76 m-tall, a model and student. In 2012 she won the Miss Globe International title.
It’s curious to note that Miss Brazil Universe is one of the very few pageants today to crown its winner wearing a swimsuit. The new queen, in addition to the crown and sash, gets a cloak, something also left in the past by most beauty contests.
The contest took place in Belo Horizonte, capital of Minas Gerais state.
