HA NOI — The Miss Earth 2010 crown was placed on 20-year-old Nicole Faria's head in the beach city of Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa Province on Saturday night.

Faria, from India, won the affection of judges with her response to the question "For you, what is more important: sunrise or sunset?" Her answer: "I will obviously choose sunrise because whenever we see the sunrise, people will think about a new day filled with energy. A new day offers 24 valuable hours to do good things for ourselves and other people."

Originally a model, the 1.76m-tall Faria won the title Miss Talent earlier in the pageant with her exotic belly dance that combined Oriental and Middle Eastern styles.

One of the world's three most prestigious beauty contests, including Miss World and Miss Universe, Miss Earth is the only pageant that gives all runners-up a title.

Miss Ecuador Jennifer Pazmino won the title Miss Earth-Air, while Miss Thailand Watsaporn Wattanakoon walked away with the Miss Earth-Water honour. Miss Puerto Rico Yeidy Bosquez was crowned Miss Earth-Fire.

Except for winning The Best in Swim wear, Miss Viet Nam Luu Thi Diem Huong, didn't win any significant titles during the event, although she was among the top 14 contestants.

During the final night of the pageant, which took place at the five-star Vinpearl Land Resort & Spa, all 84 contestants strutted their stuff in swim wear, evening gown and ao dai (Vietnamese women dress) performances.

Ronan Keating, former member of the world-famous band Boyzone, also performed during the final night.

Miss Earth is an annual international beauty pageant which promotes environmental awareness. Miss Earth 2010 was organised to raise money for central Viet Nam flood victims. — VNS

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
