Miss World Alexandria Mills has gone from pageant underdog to star of the web’s latest naked snap scandal.
The 18-year-old Miss United States beat favourite Miss Norway to snatch a victory at the 2010 Miss World pageant contest at the Beauty Crown Cultural Center in Sanya, China, on October 30, 2010.
Alexandria Mills became the first American woman to be crowned Miss World, but now rumors of a nude photo have surfaced on the Internet, potentially tarnishing the soft-spoken 18-year-old’s wholesome image.

Mills took over the Miss World title from Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar, who was named Miss World 2009 at a ceremony last December. According to a brief biography on the Miss World website, Mills is a recent high school graduate from Louisville, Ky. and hopes to become a teacher.
According to paparazzi, the racy photo of Mills was taken that summer. The celebrity gossip site reports that the picture was taken in what seems to be a bathroom and was originally sent to her boyfriend. The site says it has seen the photo and has confirmed its authenticity.
Alexandria Mills is the latest in a growing list of attractive celebrities to have private pics catch the public’s eye. Of course, this isn’t the first time that a beauty queen has been embroiled in a nude photshoot scandal. In 2009, expectant mum and ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean lost her tiara after her sex tapes and topless snaps were unearthed by pageant organisers. Carrie Prejean sued pageant organizers for religious discrimination. But, according to NBC, the legal battle imploded when pageant organizers uncovered a sex tape featuring the religiously devout beauty queen. That same year, Ashley Greene, the fresh-faced actress who played Alice Cullen in the box-office hit “Twilight,” went on the offensive when nude photos of the 22-year-old surfaced on the web. Greene’s lawyer confirmed the authenticity of the shots but threatened to sue anyone who published them, claiming displaying them was unlawful.
