25-year-old beauty from Willemstad, Kyrsha Attaf, was crowned Miss Universe Curacao 2019 last Thursday, June 20 at the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Newport. She bested 5 other contestants to win the coveted national title.
Kyrsha succeeded last year’s winner and Miss Universe 2018 Top 10 semi-finalist, Akisha Albert. Aside from winning the crown, she also won Miss Photogenic, Miss Internet and Miss Talent awards. She will now prepare to represent Curacao at the Miss Universe 2019 pageant later this year.
Chantal Wiertz and Liane Bonofacia were the first and second runners-up, respectively.
Curacao is yet to win the Miss Universe crown. Its highest placement in the pageant was in 1968 with Annemarie Braafheid’s first runner-up finish.
