Apasra Hongsakula was the first Thai and second Asian woman to win the prestigious Miss Universe title. She was the shortest at 5'4" and the only brunette among the five finalists at the Miami pageant. She spoke no English but captivated the judges nonetheless with her charm, poise and regal bearing. Apasra later married a first cousin of Queen Sirikit, and like the Royal Thai family, is still a much revered social figure in her country. This year, the semi-finalists were announced during pageant night,
not one day before as done in previous pageants
