Law Student Crowned Miss World

You would think the most beautiful law student in the world would attend the most beautiful law school, (as ranked by 100,000 students who attend elsewhere). But no, Unnur Birna Vilhjalmsdottir, 21, is a law student in Iceland of all places, and apparently a serious one at that. As reported here, Unnur was in China on a four-week tour with the other 101 Miss World contestants and while at the contest, she found time to continue her studies. “I brought my law books with me and study in the evenings after dinner."

I know at this point I should post a photo to drive up traffic, but I just can't bring myself to. Oh, and what was her response when asked if she could have one wish granted what would it be? You guessed it. "That the people on this planet could live in peace..."
