Who will be the next Miss World Australia 2016?

Miss World Australia 2016 has officially launched! The winner will have the opportunity to compete at Miss World 2016.

The reigning Miss World Australia is Tess Alexander from Brisbane, Queensland. She represented her country at the 2015 Miss World Pageant in London where she made the TOP 10.

Two Australian representatives have won the Miss World title, in 1968 and 1972.

There are no longer swimsuits on the catwalk in Miss World Australia, a pageant boosting its charity focus under the new national director, Deborah Miller, who believes in the event’s motto, “Beauty with a Purpose”.

"Miss World Australia’s mission is beauty with a purpose. Beauty as a means to an end versus beauty for the sake of beauty itself Our contestants will participate along a journey of development, of a philanthropic mindset and heart space. That’s the difference between Ourselves and other pageants", Miller said.

Iceland will return to Miss Universe pageant

Iceland will return to the Miss Universe pageant this year! Organizers of the newly formed “Miss Universe Iceland” met with members of the Miss Universe Organization to confirm their return.

The winner will be chosen later this year and will represent Iceland at Miss Universe 2016. The last time Iceland participated at Miss Universe was in 2009 with the gorgeous Ingibjorg Egilsdottir who placed in the Top 15.


The competition has been carried out since 1950; in the first year it was called Miss Reykjavík (Ungfrú Reykjavík). Since 1955, the contest has taken place under the current name Miss Iceland. There are six regional preliminary contests in each of the five rural regions and in the capital Reykjavík. 20 to 24 candidates, three to four from each region, take part in the finals.
To date Iceland’s biggest achievement in the Miss Universe competition is when Anna Geirsdóttir won first runner-up during the Miss Universe 1962 pageant.

Miss World Australia 2013 Erin Holland goes POP

Miss World Australia 2013 Erin Holland has formed an unlikely alliance with pop rock singer Krystie Steve, performing together covering Conrad Sewell’s chart topping hit Firestone.


Holland, 27, who picked up the Oceania Continental Queen award at Miss World 2013, is keen to experiment with her musical abilities and hopes to surprise a few people with her latest work, which strays from the classical styles she is known for, and which she showcased at Miss World in Bali.

Speaking about her collaborator on this track, Holland said “She’s pretty much the opposite to me in every which way. She’s got a really fierce look. She’s an incredible singer but is self taught. In a crazy way, our voices complemented each other which you wouldn’t have thought considering we come from such different backgrounds musically.”
