miss universe 1968




Martha Vasconcellos is Brazil's second Miss Universe. This was another homesick winner.The morning after winning the title, Martha Vasconcellos cried for her family and boyfriend. She had been supposedly engaged with her boyfriend since she was 12 and she had missed him so much While other contestants protested against being chaperoned all the time, Ireland's Tiffany Scales said she understood: “Can you imagine the chaos if you had 66 beauty queens running around Miami getting plastered and picking up men?” Runner-up Anne Marie Braafheid of Curacao makes history as the highest placing black delegate as of 1968 in Miss Universe history.

    A TRAVESTY.....Miss Curacao was robbed. Anne Marie Braafheid should have won, not this graceless, charmless Brazilian glamazon, as another pageant site has called Vasconcellos.

    By the way, even her dress was hideous.
