Kentucky teen crowned Miss World

Alexandria Mills waves after her win.

An American teenager is now Miss World 2010. Alexandria Mills, 18, is from Louisville, Kentucky. She won the international pageant Saturday in Sanya, China.

"It's a cliche but this really is a dream come true," she said, crying. "I can't believe it's happening ot me. My time has come. I'm loving it!"

Mills beat out 115 other young women in the 60th annual competition. As the final duty in her reign, Miss World 2009 Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar removed the multi-colored crown from her head and gently placed it on Mills. The first runner-up was from Botswana, the second runner-up was from Venezuela.

    Amazing how people think that a woman has to put her make-up on with a trowel to be "beautiful". It's obvious she could be ravishingly beautiful with a make-up artist's design, just like the so-called "hotties" in Hollywood, but that's not what this pageant is about. It's about the total picture, and her make-up is appropriate for the situation. Remember that this woman will be representing a particular ethic and acting as a role model for young women worldwide. I personally think she's lovely in all respects, and I congratulate her on a job well done.

    When you don't win something the word is LOSE not LOOSE. How anyone can get beyond fourth grade with spelling skills like this is beyond me. Dummies.

    What really amazes me is the anger and pettiness of the posts in these blogs. For something as inane as a beauty pageant, folks just unleash their opinions like daggers, looking for someone to pick up a sword. Has humanity devolved that far?
