Dominican Republic is one of the successful countries at Miss World pageant as it can boast of 1 win and 6 other placements. Its first and only win was in 1982 courtesy of Mariasela Álvarez. In 2004, Claudia Julissa Cruz who succeeded María Vargas (Top 20 Miss World 2003) had a very close shot to the crown when she finished as 1st runner up to María Julia Mantilla of Peru. Also in 2007, Ada Aimée made Top 16 and bagged a special award of Beach Beauty in Miss World 2007. Consecutively 2012-2014, Dominican Rep. has been placed in Top 30. Looking at the strong contenders at Miss World 2015, do you think she would make Top 25 or even a second win for Dominican Rep?
