Magali Febles (born December 24, 1964 in Santo Domingo) is a Dominican beautician[1] and beauty pageant circuit personality.

Febles is the national director for the Miss Dominican Republic Universe franchise and has previously served as national director for Miss Universe Puerto Rico and Miss Haiti franchises.

Pageant business[edit]

Miss Universe Dominican Republic and Miss Universe Puerto Rico[edit]

In 2002, Febles acquired the Miss Puerto Rico Universe and Miss Dominican Republic Universe franchises and was responsible for preparing and sending delegates from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic to Miss Universe, her most successful delegatee so far was Zuleyka Rivera in 2006 who won the international pageant. She was the former owner of two salons, Magali Febles Salon and Spa in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which she later sold in order to concentrate her energy on running both franchises.

In 2009, shortly after Mayra Matos was crowned Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2009, Febles lost the Miss Puerto Rico Universe franchise to Luisito Vigoreaux and Desiree Lowry , who took over the training of Matos and renamed the pageant Miss Universe Puerto Rico. Febles' alleged treatment of Ingrid Rivera, Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2008, and problems with the organization are allegedly reasons for her losing the franchise.[2]

Miss Haiti Universe[edit]

In 2010, she began managing the Miss Haiti Universe franchise. A delegate from Haiti is yet to place in Miss Universe since 1975, when Gerthie David became the first runner-up in the contest and the second black woman to be placed in the finals.[3]

In 2016, the license of Miss Haiti Universe was awarded to Chris Puesan from the Dominican Republic, a pageant coach and license holder.
