When Lopes was asked what trait she would change if she could she answered that she is very pleased with the beauty God has given her.
"Thank God I'm very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn't change a thing," Lopes said.
"I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life."
Lopes said that she has never had cosmetic surgery and confessed her tips for beauty were to use sun block often; get a lot of sleep; and drink lots of water. Her down-to-earth nature was complemented with immense outer beauty too though, which she showed off in a bright yellow bikini.
Now the winner says that she has work to do and she can do much more after winning the competition. "I think now as Miss Universe I will be able to do much more."
Leila Lopes hopes to assist people in Angola and fight against HIV. The model said she is going to work with "humility."
Finalists accompanying Lopes into the top five were Miss Ukraine Olesia Stefanko, Miss Philippines Shamcey Supsup, Miss China Luo Zilin and Miss Brazil Priscila Machado.
