The Miss World competition is one of the primeval global beauty pageants and was first organized in the United Kingdom in 1951 by Eric Morley. The original competition was created as part of the carnival of Britain celebrations.

In 1951, 26 women vied for the crown, with Kiki Haakonson of Sweden, who titled the first Miss World.

Right through the 1950s, the bikini drew attention from the people. Within a few years, it gathered worldwide spectators when the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) from 1959 to 1979 and then Thames Television televise it until 1988. In the year of 1970, the contest hosted by Bob Hope was the solitary most-watched pageant of the year in Britain.

Miss World challengers vie in a variety of categories such as top model, multimedia, sports, and Beauty with an Ambition. According to the folklore, the victor will spend the endearing year in London and will be travelling to embody the Miss World Organization (MWO) and its causes.
