Renae Ayris, our Miss Australia 2012, may not have won — but her third runner up place deserves credit. Congrats must of course go to Miss America, Olivia Culpo, who took the crown for 2012. For yet another year, Australia has placed in the top five for the Miss Universe pageant, confirming what we already knew: we breed some stunners down under. We're annointing the WA bred beauty best-dressed in the eveningwear category, thanks to her elegant but femme gown by last year's Project Runway runner up Craig Braybrook. Want a bit of distraction from the Friday morning drudgery? Step inside to see all the glitz and glamour from the 2012 Miss Universe pageant. Warning: big hair, big smiles and plenty of bling awaits. Ready?
