(Newser) – A 25-year-old Venezuelan who appears on TV in her country and is an accomplished flamenco dancer is the new Miss Universe. Gabriela Isler was crowned in the pageant at a sprawling exhibition hall on Moscow's outskirts. In the excitement just after the announcement, the tiara fell off Isler's head as she was being crowned; fortunately, she caught it. Patricia Rodrigues of Spain was the runner-up, with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler leading the judges.
