Picture taken in the
month of April of 1990, in it you see the representatives
of Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Venezuela, nobody imagined
that Miss Mexico, Marile Santiago, 20 years old and standing
at 1.67 tall would out-shine the big favourite, Miss Venezuela,
Andreina Goetz, 21 years old and 1.76 tall.
Miss Mexico, was one of the most applauded during the final
night of Miss Universe 1990, the representative of Colombia,
Lizeth Mahecha, 18 years old and 1.75 tall made it to the
top 3, but she lost points on her final answer and felt behind
Miss USA, Carole Gist, 20 years old and 1.80 tall, the first
woman of African-American descent to represent the United
States in Miss Universe; and the winner of the night, Miss
Norway, Mona Grudt, 19 years old and 1.70 tall, a redheaded
girl with green eyes, was chosen Miss Universe 1990.
In Miss Universe 1990 for the first time a representative
from the ex-USSR participated in the pageant wearing the sash
of Miss Soviet Union, she was 18 years old and was born on
the same date as the blond representative of Israel, who was
born in Latvia, but lived in Israel since she was a little
girl; that year Brazil did not participate.
