Miss World is the oldest and most prestigious international pageant, created in 1951. Annually, this event selects the woman who best represents the organization’s values. The new Miss World becomes the image of the organization that supports different social and charitable causes around the world.
It’s the first time the Miss World Final will be held in a Spanish-speaking country and Puerto Rico was awarded the honor.
In the past 69 years, only 15 Latinas have won this prestigious event. Among the winning countries are Venezuela, with a total of six crowns, Puerto Rico has two crown winners, as well as Peru and Argentina. The Dominican Republic, Brazil and Mexico have one crown winner each. The two winners from Puerto Rico are Lady Wilnelia Merced Forsyth, Miss World 1975, and Stephanie Del Valle, Miss World 2016.
Julia Morley of the Miss World Organization sends her congratulatory messages to newly-crowned Miss Universe Andrea Meza and 1st Runner-Up Julia Gama:
Congratulations from all of us at the Miss World Organisation to @andreamezamx , Miss World Americas 2017, on being crowned Miss Universe 2020 and to @juliawgama , Miss World Brazil 2014 on your first runner-up placement. We are so proud of both of you and delighted Andrea won, you really deserve it.
As part of her duties as Miss World Americas 2017, Andrea joined Miss World 2017, Manushi Chhillar and her fellow continental winners on a Global Humanitarian Tour visiting India, China, Indonesia, British Virgin Islands and the USA. This was documented in the series Miss World – The Story Never Told. Link to the documentary will be posted in our stories.”
Officially now, Julia Morley of the Miss World Organization issued a statement regarding the schedule of the next Miss World edition.
With the move, it could no longer be confirmed of the original host country – Thailand – will still be the place to be next year. But if it remains the same, then I say “good!” because it will be easier doing a coverage there.
At any rate, here is the Official Statement.
“The 70th Miss World Final will be held in the latter part of 2021
Host Country/Venue will be confirmed very soon.”
The announcement has been made by Julia Morley Chairman and CEO of Miss World to all National Licence Holders.
“We have made the decision to delay the 70th Miss World Final. Safety is paramount as we continue the fight against Covid 19 – We look forward to welcoming the Miss World family to our very special celebrations next year.”

This victory was a long time coming for the Philippines. And on the night of September 28, 2013 at the Nusa Dua Convention Center in Bali, Indonesia, the blue crown finally landed on the head of a Philippine representative. Megan Young had ended the country’s search for the very first win in the beauty pageant that started back in 1951.
After more than six long decades of trying, it was definitely worth the wait. And how! Miss World 2013 can be considered as one of the grandest editions of the competition ever. This was also when the transition from having a beach beauty segment (where only select candidates participated with sarongs covering the lower part of their bodies) to having no swimsuits at all the following year.
And you can relive the entire event below.

Miss World 2013 Megan Young returned to a hero’s welcome in the country. And despite the rains last October 11, the people came out in droves to wave and cheer the achievememt. Julia Morley was also on Cloud 9 at the time, seeing how rapturous and overwhelming the homecoming parade turned out. She was definitely pleased with giving us the crown at just the right time.
And like a Mother to her newborn, Julia showered Megan with love and guidance throughout the reign.

From there, Megan took to heart a promise of being the best Miss World ever. She fulfilled a year-long stint that was productive and rewarding for both her and the organization. As a result, she continues to take part in events of Miss World up to this day – be it hosting, charity work or personal appearances.
Now married to actor Mikael Daez, she continues to be a cool inspiration to many beauty queens, pageant aspirants and even showbiz upstarts – smart, well-spoken and always updated.
In my opinion, it might take long before another Filipina is crowned Miss World. But who knows? A second one will serendipitously come in less time than we had to wait for the first one. And hopefully, it will also be in everyone’s lifetime. Or at least to everyone who savored the sweetest victory that was Miss World 2013.
HAINAN, CHINA – DECEMBER 6: The new Miss World Rosanna Davison from Ireland waves at to the crowd after being crowned Miss World December 6, 2003 in Hainan, China. The live show was watched by a worldwide TV audience and for the first time allowed the public to vote for their favorite contestant using the internet. (Photo by Getty Images)
Last December 6, 2003 in Hainan, China, Rosanna Davidson of Ireland was crowned Miss World during an edition every pageant follower thought the title was already in the bag for the Irish bet who happens to be the daughter of singer Chris de Burgh and a good friend of Julia Morley. Regardless of that talk, Miss Philippines Maria Rafaela Verdadero Yunon gave Filipinos reasons to be happy that night when she made it all the way to the Top 5. Even prior to the Finals, our representative always stood out in almost every event she was short-listed for or an integral part of.
Memorable were Mafae’s red gown and killer heels that really made her shine even more. Rumor has it that the ensemble wasn’t what BPCI instructed her to wear for the competition, and that a personal glam team insured that she be dressed and styled more differently than originally planned. But that’s all water under the bridge now. Below are highlights of Miss World 2003:

The photos in this entry show one of the main reasons why Mr World remains as the most prestigious and substance-filled international male competition – the Charity Causes that the MWO under Julia Morley raises funds for.
Tuloy Foundation is one of the main beneficiaries this year and the presence of Fr. Rockie Evangelista and the kids during the finals last Friday night was easily the most memorable part of the entire proceedings. It left members of the audience teary-eyed seeing the candidates express their love and fondness for the young ones onstage.
The candidates of Mr World 2019 had a fun and emotional time at Tuloy Foundation where they had an audience with Founder Fr. Rockie Evangelista who served as an inspiration for all the guys who now look up to him as a role model to follow in their respective countries. Ms Julia Morley of MWO plus Miss World 2018 Vanessa Ponce de León and Miss World 2016 Stephanie del Valle joined in the activity as well.
