As Miss Russia 2001, Fedorova was selected to represent Russia at Miss Universe 2002, held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her work visa from Russia was delayed due to tensions between Russia and the United States over upcoming nuclear weapons discussions between United States President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin, so she arrived at San Juan much later than other contestants. Donald Trump, owner of the Miss Universe Organization said, "This is an unusual year, and these countries are right in the middle of a lot of turmoil. It's tough stuff. Once they're [in San Juan] they feel safe, but it's the getting there that concerns some of them."

A few months after Fedorova's crowning, she was rumored to be pregnant, and was later dethroned by the Miss Universe Organization.

She later 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.
