Did you know this ? Peru has been competing in the Miss Universe pageant from 1952 and in the Miss World pageant from 1959. In Miss World, in the early years of the pageant, Peru did not send representatives up to 1959 as in the years 1966, 1969-1972 and 1974 that may be one of the reasons why the country has not had many semifinalists compared to the Miss Universe.

Peru participated in the Miss World pageant for the first time in 1959, represented by María Elena Rossel Zapata, who was ranked as the 1st runner-up, this was the first time that a Latin American country took the 2nd place in the Miss World pageant.
