    Agbani Darego is a beauty, she can win Miss World over and over again. she does not even need 24 inches of brazillian hair (one bag of cement) on her head. she is as simple as that with minimal make-up.

    Has the voting ended? If not, I would advice that the link for voting be added on each post so that we can always give our rep a chance to forge ahead.
