New Campaign for Miss Universe 2010 Ximena Navarrete! Ximena has worked as the face of Benito Santos for a Bridal Campaign. Benito Santos was the designer of Ximena’s red Evening Gown during Miss Universe 2010. Santos is also known to be the Designer of Mexico’s First Lady, Angelica Rivera.
Behind The Scenes
Ximena Navarrete with Karla Carrillo, Nuestra Belleza Mexico 2008; Karin Ontiveros, Nuestra Belleza Mexico 2010 and Karina Gonzalez, Nuestra Belleza Mexico 2011.
Former Mexican Beauty Queens joined her: Karina Gonzalez, Nuestra Belleza Mexico 2011 and Miss Universe 2012 6th runner-up. The design of the gown she wore was reminiscent of what Miss Universe 2010 and fellow Mexican Ximena Navarrete wore when she was crowned, incidentally, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Karla Carrillo was considered a big favorite and a front runner, she failed to place in the Top 16, ending Mexico’s five year streak of consecutive placements in Miss Universe 2009, from 2004 through 2008.
Karina Gonzalez participated in Miss Universe 2011 pageant, but she was unplaced.
