The Miss World pageant is the oldest surviving major international beauty pageant. It was created in the United Kingdom by Eric Morley in 1951.[1][2] Since his death in 2000, Morley's wife, Julia Morley, co-chairs the pageant.[3]

Alongside its rival Miss Universe and Miss Earth contests, this pageant is one of the most publicised beauty contests in the world.[4][5][6]

The winner spends a year travelling to represent the Miss World Organization and its various causes.[7] Traditionally, Miss World lives in London during her reign. The current Miss World is Alexandria Mills of United States.
