Mexico’s Miss Universe

Miss Universe – Jimena Navarrete

It comes as no surprise to us that Miss Mexico, 22-year-old Jimena Navarrete Rosete of Guadalajara, won the Miss Universe title in Las Vegas!

Being from Mexico, “Rosete” is her mother’s last name, and here dad’s last name is, “Navarrete.” That is a nice tradition, to honor your mother’s family by adding on her last name to yours. In the U.S. Miss Universe’s last name would be simply “Jimena Navarrete.”

All any person has to do is look at look at Jimena and know that she would be a real winner.

She is beautiful, intelligent, stunning, and has long legs,  just like a tall glass of chilled iced tequila!

Mexico has its share of beautiful women. As I had posted in earlier blogs, I mentioned that Mexicali women and Mexican women in general are always well dressed, their makeup is perfect, and their hairstyles are all beautifully coiffed.

Miss Universe – the big moment!

We have seen an emergence of young and tall, bi-lingual Mexican women, who are just spectacular to look at. I, myself, have met many young ladies, at Starbucks, and Cinepolis, the movie house, and had to opportunity to speak to them. Their English is perfecto!  I must get my Spanish going, as Jim is fluent in it.

Miss Navarrete is from Guadalajara. I will tell you that some of the most beautiful Mexican women are from that city.  Each Mexican region has its own share of women who look just as beautiful.

I cannot say enough about Latin women!

I, myself, have started to put on make-up as well!  Something I didn’t do while living in the U.S. And I am quite pleased with what I see! I had to ask one of my friends, Alvara, to help me put on the false eyelashes when we had to attend a party! Well? Couldn’t do it on my own, I just couldn’t see without my glasses.

Many Mexican women are highly educated, coming from private schools, and moving onto Universities in Mexico or in the U.S. Being bi-lingual is a “must” for them (as it is for the young men).

Jimena Navarrete’s single-strap dress in the evening gown competition was a winner.

Here is a photo of Jimena in her violet bikini, as she walks down the runway.

Looking at the photo, Matthew said, “Gosh she’s beautiful.” Then he paused for a moment and said, “But remember, I was named Mr. Teen Idol on the cover of Dig Magazine.

“We know that Matthew, you were a great singer, but there ain’t no comparison with Dig Magazine and this here Miss Universe thing. It’s owned by Donald Trump, and he choosed her.”

“Well good for Donald Trump!” snapped Matthew.

“Don’t take it wrong, Matthew,” answered Jim, “you did darn good getting to be Mr. Teen Idol—course that was way back when Burt Reynolds was singin’ on the show.”

“It wasn’t Burt Reynolds; it was Burt Parks, and it wasn’t Miss Universe he sang to, it was Miss American,” said Matthew.

“Well, whatever—Reynolds, Parks, who knows?” said Jim, backing off.

It’s great how Jim always sticks up for Matthew.

First runner-up was Miss Jamaica Yendi Phillipps, while second runner-up was Miss Australia Jesinta Campbell.

Ms. Navarrete said she didn’t expect to win. Very nice for a girl that beautiful to be modest.

Jimena said.  ”I was like in a state of shock.”

Ms. Navarrete – who’s been modeling since she was 15 – is Mexico’s second Miss Universe. Lupita Jones of Mexico won the title in 1991.

Ms. Navarrete replaces Miss Universe 2009 Stefania Fernandez of Venezuela.

Ms. Navarrete was immediately congratulated on Twitter by Mexican President Felipe Calderon and his wife, Margarita Zavala.

“Congratulations to Jimena Navarrete for her deserved victory as Miss Universe,” Mr. Calderon said. “This will serve Mexico, and our image as a country.” Jemina will be visiting President Calderon and his wife soon!

Jimena Navarrete – Miss Universe

Jimena won a whole bunch of prizes including an undisclosed salary, a luxury New York apartment with living expenses, a one-year scholarship to the New York Film Academy with housing after her reign, plus jewelery, clothes and shoes fit for a beauty champion. If she can act, we will soon see her on the small or big screen!

Again, Mexican women are one of the most beautiful ladies that we have seen!  Don’t take my word? Just look at Jimena? Women like her grow on trees in Mexico!  I speak only the truth.  This the what the new young generation of women look like! This being the result of generations of families with fine genetic breeding.  Eyeliners and mascaras sell like hot cakes in Mexicali and Mexico. Even older Mexican women have their hair colored, and groomed. It is the culture and the lifestyle of a Mexicana.  Never grow old is the way to go for Latinas.

Our congratulations to Jimena!
