LONDON—A human resources graduate from Venezuela, who grew up an orphan and spent five years in an orphanage, was crowned Miss World 2011 at a glittering beauty pageant in London on Sunday. The 21-year-old Gwendoline Ruais, who is half-Filipino and half-French, graduated with a Business management degree last year and was crowned Miss World Philippines on Sept. 18, 2011. Ivian Sarcos, 21, took the ultimate beauty accolade at Earls Court in London, the city where the first Miss World was staged in 1951. Miss Philippines, French-Filipina Gwendoline Ruais, a buxom six-footer from Muntinlupa City, was named the first runner-up, or second place. Ruais tied for the highest finish for the Philippines in the Miss World pageant, which the pageant-crazy nation has never won. Evangeline Pascual was also first runner-up in 1973. Miss World is considered a British Commonwealth rival to the US-organized Miss Universe pageant. Shamcey Supsup was third runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant in July. Miss Venezuela, Ivian Sarcos, is crowned Miss World in London on Sunday (Monday in Manila). Sarcos grew up an orphan after she lost her parents at age eight.
