Washington, Aug 8 : After winning this year's Miss Universe crown, Dayana Mendoza is back in news - but this time its all for the wrong reasons.
The beauty queen has been caught in a nude scandal after photos of her modelling naked for a jewellery firm surfaced.
The 22-year-old Venezuelan beauty queen modelled for the raunchy pictures before she signed up as a Miss Universe contestant, reports Contactmusic.
However, Miss Universe Organisation officials have decided not to penalise Mendoza, insisting that the candid photos were not pornographic. The officials said that the photos are "artistic in nature, and they don't have an ounce of pornographic content to them."
