Oxana Fedorova (Oksana Fyodorova, Оксана Фёдорова in Russian) (born December 17, 1977) is a Russian Miss Universe winner (dethroned/resigned), police officer (rank of major), television hostess, actress, and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Fedorova became the first Miss Russia to win the Miss Universe contest. She began in the entertainment business as a model and became Miss St. Petersburg in 1999 and Miss Russia in 2001, but declined to go to the Miss Universe 2001 pageant (where her runner-up Oxana Kalandyrets was a semifinalist).


Early life


Oxana Fedorova was born in Pskov, Russia, where she lived until she was 18. Fedorova is an only child, and she was brought up by her mother and maternal grandparents. According to Fedorova, her grandparents were very demanding of her.

Fedorova's parents divorced when she was three years old. She did not hear from her father since then. In 2005 Oxana tried to find her father, but discovered he had died.

Her father was a nuclear physicist, and her mother worked as a nurse at a psychiatric hospital (she is retired). In school, Fedorova played volleyball and her team won a championship in an urban tournament in 1995. At the police academy, Fedorova played the saxophone as a member of the brass band.

Cadet and Beauty Queen

After graduating from the police academy with a red diploma, Fedorova worked as an inspector in the Pskov militia for six months. Following her time with the force, Fedorova moved to St. Petersburg to study at the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) University, where she worked as an investigator at the Pulkovo Transport Police whilst studying. Fedorova also began to work as a model and started to participate in beauty pageants. She was named Miss St. Petersburg 1999, Miss Kalokagathia 1999, Miss Fitness, Miss Fortune, and Miss Russia 2001. Fedorova graduated from the MVD University with a gold medal in 2000. After that, Fedorova entered a post graduate course at the same university. While Oxana wrote her dissertation on "Regulation of Private Detective and Security Activity in the Russian Federation," she taught Civil Law to younger students. Fedorova's biggest fan base was among police colleagues.

Miss Universe 2002

The 2002 Miss Universe contest was held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Oxana won both the swimsuit and evening gown competitions by large margins over the other nine semi-finalists. In fact, her score of 9.88 in the swimsuit competition was the highest televised score for that event in the history of the pageant.

After Crowning

Upon being crowned Miss Universe 2002, Fedorova was showered with honors and gifts. Noted Russian doll designer Helen Yarmak even dedicated a doll to her. Fedorova traveled to France, Italy, Kenya, Canada, Greece, Panama, Indonesia, and Puerto Rico as Miss Universe 2002. Controversy soon loomed ahead for Fedorova, however, as she was later rumored to be pregnant.


Fedorova denied the pregnancy rumors and stated that she voluntarily gave up her crown for personal reasons, mainly because she wanted to finish her law degree.[1] Officially, she was dethroned for failing to perform the numerous duties expected of a Miss Universe titleholder. At the time she stated in an interview that she had declined to perform her duties because she was so insulted by her treatment on The Howard Stern Show. She blamed the pageant organizers for not warning her of the frequently profane Stern commentary, of which she, as a foreigner, had no prior knowledge. The crown was passed on to Panama's Justine Pasek, the first runner-up, who consequently became her country's first Miss Universe.

Fedorova was the first Miss Universe who officially did not finish her reign (although the very first Miss Universe, Armi Kuusela, gave up her title a month before her reign ended and Amparo Muñoz of Spain was "unofficially" dethroned in 1974). Although the Miss Universe Organization refuses to recognize Fedorova as a former Miss Universe, she is generally regarded as one by the public.
