Natalia Valenzuela Cutiva (born April 16, 1989 in Neiva) is a Colombian beauty pageant titleholder. Valenzuela won the Miss Huila 2010 contest[1] which allowed her to participate in the Miss Colombia 2010 pageant, where she won the title of 1st princess (2nd runner-up) and Miss Colombia International.

Early life[edit]

Valenzuela was born in Neiva on April 16, 1989. Her measurements are 86–61–91 (centimeters); she is 1.77 meters tall and has brown eyes, brown hair and white skin.[2] She has studied performance arts and is part of the Casting models agency.[3] Valenzuela now works for a Colombian private television network RCN TV as a television program presenter, for the show, Style RCN in Spanish Estilo RCN.[4]

Miss Colombia 2010[edit]

Valenzuela represented the department of Huila in Miss Colombia 2010, held in Cartagena de Indias, on November 15, 2010. She was crowned as 1st princess after obtaining some of the highest scores: 9.7 in the evening gown competition and 9.6 in the swimsuit competition.[5] In addition, Cutiva also won several special awards prior to the final competition for Miss Colombia: Miss National Police, Miss Bodytech Figure (Best Body)[6] and Miss Natural Beauty.

Traditionally 1st runners-up represent Colombia at Miss International, but the maximum age to compete is 24, at the time of the event. Lizeth Gonzalez was therefore delegated to represent Colombia in the 18 version of Top Model of the World and Valenzuela took her place in Miss International 2011.[7]

Miss International 2011[edit]

On November 6, 2011, Valenzuela competed at the Miss International 2011 [8] pageant, held in Chengdu (China), when she represented her country Colombia, but did not place.
