Miss Venezuela, Dayana Mendoza, has been crowned Miss Universe 2008.

Brunette Mendoza, 22, is a professional model and an interior designer who claims to love photography.

She was awarded her crown at the Crown Convention Center (Diamond Bay Resort) in Vietnam's city of Nha Trang

The pageant finale was watched by nearly a billion television viewers worldwide.

Mendoza's win makes it the fifth victory for Venezuela.

The model was once kidnapped in her homeland and said the experience has taught her to remain calm under pressure.

"This is something that happens in my country and that's why I want to raise my voice and say violence is not the answer," she said when asked about the incident.

Mendoza was one of four finalists from Latin America, including first runner-up Taliana Vargas, 20, from Colombia.

Others in the top five were from the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Russia.
