Clarissa Molina wins Miss Republica Dominicana 2015



A 23-year-old model representing the province of Espaillat was crowned Miss Republica Dominicana Universo 2015 during the finals held August 30 at Teatro La Fiesta del Hotel Jaragua.

Clarissa Molina, a social communications student, has earned the right to represent the country in Miss Universe pageant later this year. She was 3rd runner-up in Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015 held last April.



First runner-up is Sophinel Báez (San Francisco de Macorís) and will compete in Reina Hispanoamericana 2015. Jennifer Pichardo (La Altagracia) finished 2nd runner-up and will compete in Miss Continentes Unidos.

In 2003, Amelia Vega became the first Miss Universe from the Dominican Republic. The country’s most recent placement was Yaritza Reyes’ Top 10 finish in 2013.



  1. She is better then Rolene Strauss. She is more beautiful. Her body is great and she is intelligent and confidant and very vibrant in all types of fashion. She is a fashionista. And MU is a pageant for women who can dress well and walk and talk confidently. She is a perfect fit for MU. She is Dom Rep second MU if she wins and I want her to bcoz she is beautiful just like Amelia Vega MU 2013

  2. Clarissa Molina is the best decision Dominican Republic could have made to represent them at Miss Universe. She has experience in pageants like Nuestra Belleza Latina 2015 where she came as 3rd runner up, she’s all natural (no surgeries), she’s intelligent, can dominate the catwalk, but most of all she is BEAUTIFUL! She will most definently place at this years Miss Universe!
