Yoseph Alicia Machado Fajardo (born December 6, 1976), commonly known as Alicia Machado, was the fourth woman from Venezuela to win the Miss Universe crown. She won the Venezuela's 1995 pageant representing Yaracuy.
Machado was born in Maracay in the state of Aragua. She is the daughter of a Cuban father and Spanish mother. Machado defied all predictions and went all the way to win the Miss Universe 1996 pageant in Las Vegas. The runner-up, Jacqueline Aguilera, also won the Miss World 1995 crown, marking the second time that Venezuela had held the two world titles simultaneously. Machado's reign came as Donald Trump took ownership of the Miss Universe pageant.
