Miss World 2016 : Meet the candidates

Miss World 2016, the 66th edition of the Miss World pageant, will take place in Washington D.C. on December 18, 2016. The outgoing queen Mireia Lalaguna of Spain will crown her successor at the end of the event.

Delegates of about one hundred countries and autonomous territories will compete for the title. The contestants will compete in various Challenger events, like Top Model, Talent, Multimedia, Sports, Beauty With a Purpose and a new challenge event called Resort Wear.

Did you know this ? The pageant was created in 1951 by Eric Morley, it was called the Festival Bikini Contest. The swimsuit competition was intended as a promotion for the bikini. However, because of the controversy arising from Miss World 1951 Kicki Håkansson‘s crowning in a bikini, countries with religious traditions threatened not to send delegates to future events, and the bikini was condemned by the Pope.
