Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentRiyo Mori Bio – Smartasses Magazine Riyo Mori 森 理世 (born December 24, 1986) is a Japanese beauty pageant titleholder and television personality. She studied at Quinte Ballet School of Canada and is a graduate of Centennial Secondary School in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. Mori also attended Mount Douglas Secondary School in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

As Japan’s representative in the Miss Universe 2007 pageant, Mori travelled to Mexico City, Mexico in early May to participate in four weeks of events, rehearsals and preliminary competitions with the other seventy-seven delegates. In the final competition, broadcast internationally on May 28, 2007, she was announced as one of fifteen semi-finalists who would move forward to compete for the title. Mori achieved the highest score in the swimsuit competition, which advanced her to the top ten, and followed this by placing fourth in the evening gown competition. Her kimono inspired black floral evening gown came from the 2007 Gucci Spring & Summer collection. In the final round, she was asked by Elle magazine fashion director and Project Runway judge Nina Garcia, to speak about the one lesson she learned as a child that still affected her life. Mori stated that she had been dancing since childhood, and due to her interactions with dance students and instructors, she had learned to be happy, patient and positive in her life. She also expressed the desire to teach those principles to the next generation. At the conclusion of the competition, Mori was crowned Miss Universe, becoming the second woman from Japan to hold the title. She is also the eleventh Asian woman to win the pageant, and the third Japanese woman to place in the top five over the previous decade. Mori crowned Venezuela native Dayana Mendoza Miss Universe 2008, with a $120,000 tiara on July 14, 2008 in Nha Trang, Vietnam.

As an only child, Mori began dancing at the age of four. As of May 2008, she had traveled to Indonesia, Spain, the Bahamas, St. Kitts and Nevis, the United States, China, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Vietnam, France, Monaco, San Marino, Russia and Italy. Mori starred in the Donald Trump MTV reality show Pageant Place along with Rachel Smith, Katie Blair and Hilary Cruz. The show began airing on October 10, 2007 and ran for eight episodes. She also appeared in Jessica Simpson’s VH1 reality show The Price of Beauty in 2010, to showcase the standards of beauty in her home country of Japan.

Why we think she’s hot:

When you’re only the second woman to be crowned Miss Universe from Japan since 1959, you’re probably doing something right. The fact that Riyo Mori took first overall in the swimsuit competition alone, is tantamount to her timeless beauty, but being adorned with the ultimate crown of 2007 kind of seals the deal a bit more. Throw some of her Canadian culture into the pot, and Miss Mori is an eclectic blend of culture that’s even yummier. In addition to her self evident good looks, personally, we feel Riyo is also a poster child for both fun and class, with two of the best cheekbones on planet Earth.
