Venezuelan hottie Dayana Mendoza is featured in the September 2009 issue of Maxim. And since her reign as Miss Universe is coming to an end, the 23-year-old has decided to grab our attention by posing topless in the latest edition of the men’s magazine.

Now you might think this would cause a storm of controversy, but don’t worry because these photos were provided by the Miss Universe Organization. Pageant officials say that Dayana is simply appearing in Maxim, after all — not Playboy or Penthouse — and you can’t really see anything in the pics.

Be sure to get a copy of Maxim’s September issue on newsstands August 18th for more of Dayana. You can go here for a Maxim magazine subscription.

Check out some highlights below:

What was the reaction like in Venezuela when you won?
Venezuela went 12 years not having a Miss Universe. They did, like, parades. In South America we’re big fanatics of pageants. My parents told me that when I won, cars were going through the streets honking like after a soccer match.

And when you got home, were people still going crazy?
I saw all these Venezuelans with the little flags, and they were crying, and I was kind of crying as well. I really enjoyed how much happiness I could bring to so many people by winning. And I think we needed it in my country.

Does a guy have to be an oil tycoon to get a date with you?
No, he doesn’t have to be a soccer player or an actor, either. He just has to be a special guy who is very genuine.

The 2009 Miss Universe pageant will be broadcast live on Sunday, August 23rd.
