Magali Esperanza Febles Moretta (born 1964 in Santo Domingo) is a Dominican beautician and beauty pageant circuit personality who is the national pageant director for the Miss Dominican Republic Universe.
Miss Dominican Republic Universe, Miss Puerto Rico Universe, and Miss Haiti Universe
In 2003, Febles acquired the Miss Puerto Rico Universe and Miss Dominican Republic Universe franchises and was responsible for preparing and sending delegates from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic to Miss Universe, her most successful delegatee so far was Zuleyka Rivera in 2006 who won the international pageant. She was the former owner of two salons, Magali Febles Salon and Spa in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which she later sold in order to concentrate her energy on running both franchises.
Loss of Miss Puerto Rico Universe
In 2009, shortly after Mayra Matos was crowned Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2009, Febles lost the Miss Puerto Rico Universe franchise to Desiree Lowry and Luisito Vigoreaux, who took over the training of Matos and renamed the pageant Miss Universe Puerto Rico. Febles' alleged treatment of Ingrid Rivera, Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2008, and problems with the organization are allegedly reasons for her losing the franchise.
Miss Haiti Universe Franchise Change
In 2010 She began managing the Miss Haiti Universe franchise. A delegate from Haiti is yet to place in Miss Universe since 1975, when Gerthie David became the first runner-up in the contest and the second black woman to be place in the finals.
In 2016 the license of Miss Haiti Universe was awarded to Chris Puesan from the Dominican Republic, a pageant coach and license holder. Before the creation of Miss Haiti Organization was not common to see Haiti competing in international pageants but after the launch of the national competition Haiti is joining most of the pageants all over the world.
