Miss America may have snatched the crown as Miss Universe at last night’s Miss Universe 2012 pageant but former Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes stole the show in a custom made gown designed by Korto Momolu. Inspired by traditional tribal attire, the gown’s fabric is canary yellow with black accents, which represents Korto’s and Leila’s proud African heritage of Liberia and Angola.

During her reign as Miss Universe 2011, Lopes wore several pieces from the Korto Momolu Collection for media tours and special appearances.
“I am honored to have one of my custom pieces showcased and to share a bit of my roots and personality with a global audience. Yellow has always been my happy color, and the choice of flowing materials was important to show movement and youthfulness. Both Leila and I claim the color yellow as a favorite,” said Korto Momolu.
