We already know that Miss South Africa Rolene Strauss has been crowned Miss World of 2014 at London, but what comes as a lovely surprise to Malaysians is the winner of Miss Talent is none other than our very own Miss Malaysia Dewi Liana Seriestha!
Making Malaysia proud, Dewi, who is an ex-contestant of Malaysian reality singing show “Mentor”, won the Talent Contest in a live singing competition against Miss Scotland where she sang “Don Juan Triumphant” from “The Phantom of the Opera” musical.
“I chose to sing this song because I know it best compliments my talent. At the same time, it is also to show the love I have for classical music and showcase everything that I have learnt throughout my vocal class,” said Dewi as quoted from The Borneo Post.
The 25-year-old Miss Malaysia was born in Kuching, Sarawak to a Chinese Indonesian father, Yudhi Seriestha, and a Dayak Bidayuh mother, Catherine Noep.

The Sarawakian beauty queen entered the entertainment industry since 2005 and with her tall and slender figure, she now works as a model and an actress.
