Miss World 2014 winner is Miss South Africa Rolene Strauss!

Miss World 2014 winner, as predicted, was Miss South Africa Rolene Strauss, winning over 120 candidates from the around the world.

The newly-crowned Miss World 2014 winner is the 1st candidate from Africa to have won Miss World in 13 years and the 1st from South Africa in 4 decades. The last Miss World winner from the continent was Miss Nigeria Agbani Daregon in 2001 and she happens to be one of the judges this year.

She is now the 3rd South African beauty to win the title, after Penelope Anne Coelen in 1958 and Anneline Kriel, who took over the title in 1974 when the winner resigned. All of these 3 won London.

It was a well-deserved win for this 22-year-old student of Medicine, 'coz she was a huge favorite, from Day 1 'til the finale.
