Miss World

Miss World is the oldest running international beauty pageant. It was created in the United Kingdom by Eric Morley in 1951. Since his death in 2000, Morley's widow, Julia Morley, has co-chaired the pageant. Along with Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Earth, this pageant is one of the Big Four international beauty pageants—the most coveted beauty titles when it comes to international pageant competitions. The current Miss World is Toni-Ann Singh of Jamaica who was crowned on 14 December 2019 in London, England. She is the fourth Jamaican to win Miss World.
