Chances of Alena at Miss Universe 2016
Alena is a blank canvas at the moment if that canvas is painted well it will turn into a master piece. Her height & those never ending legs will be her biggest assets. Last 2 Miss Ukraine winners wore Zuhair Murad gowns for the Miss Universe pageant we hope she also gets a Zuhair Murad gown. So far we see her in the top 15 but it will be an uphill task for her.
