Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna to attend Miss Mundo Puerto Rico

1:00:00 PM

Miss World 2015 Mireia Lalaguna will grace the finals of Miss Mundo Puerto Rico.



She is now on her way to Puerto Rico, where she will meet up with the Miss Mundo Puerto Rico competition to form part of the judging panel for their Top Model event, and also to attend the presentation of this year’s Beauty with a Purpose projects.



Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico is one of the most important national pageants in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico debuted in Miss World in 1959, then was absent from 1960 to 1969.

In 1970 a new organization took the responsibility of sending contestants until 1985 via castings. Puerto Rico did not compete in Miss World from 1986 to 1988. The Miss Puerto Rico organization, directed by Anna Santisteban, obtained the Miss World franchise in 1989 and sent the 1st runner-up of Miss Puerto Rico to Miss World until 1995.

In 1996, Delia Cruz, mother of Puerto Rico's only Miss World Wilnelia Merced Cruz, obtained the franchise and began organizing the Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico pageant whose winner has been competing ever since in the international pageant. Puerto Rico has produced one winner (1975), two 2nd runners-up (2005, 2011) and ten semi-finalists (1976, 1978, 1980, 1985, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010), and one quarter-finalist (2012).
