Miss Venezuela Dayana Mendoza has been named the 2008 Miss Universe winner. Dayana is a stunning 22 year old beauty who was favored going into the competition. Venezuela has already produced four previous Miss Universe and five Miss World winners. She beat out other finalists from Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Russia and Mexico. Her crown clinching even was the question an answer where she was given the task of explaining the difference between men and women. How did Miss USA Crystle Stewart do you ask? She fell down during the evening gown portion to make it back to back years for Miss USA to fall own.

Photographer Howard Schatz had an idea: photograph actors in a series of roles and dramatic situations to reveal the essence of their characters. Such is the premise behind Schatz’s new book, In Character: Actors Acting (Bulfinch), which captures some of Hollywood’s most emotive stars in the act of, well, making faces. Ranging from Martin Landau (playing a husband at his 50th-wedding-anniversary party) to Natasha Richardson (pretending to be a rock star on the way to her high-school reunion) to Rosie Perez (at right), the ensemble in Schatz’s photographs—some of which are showcased here on VF.com—illustrate the extraordinary power of pure and spontaneous imagination. Enjoy the show. —JESSICA FLINT (Vanity Fair)
