Sherri-Lee Biggs won the Miss Universe Australia 2011 title tonight. She will represent her country in Miss Universe 2011, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on September 12.
The 20-year-old model and communications student from Perth beat a field of 30 in a ceremony at the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne. She was the crowd favorite.
“It hasn’t hit, I am absolutely shocked but can’t wait to represent Australia,” she said.
She won over USD 25 K in cash and prizes.
Australia placed in the ‘top 5′ in Miss Universe in the last two years. Sherri-Lee will try to capture a third Miss Universe crown for her country.
