The first venue of Miss World contest was the Lyceum Theater, London UK. The main motive was to promote, honor and cash the popular swim suit wear at the time. I think you may be excited to know the presenters of Miss World pageant. Twenty two year old Kiki Hakansson from Sweden won the pageant and was awarded a pearl necklace and the miss world title. After this first contest, the bikinis were replaced by modest swimsuits. So Kiki Hakansson is the first and last person to be crowned the miss world title in bikinis. This pageant was crowned in swimsuit for the next 2 decades.
As we all know this is one of the most watched programs in TV along with Olympics. From 1959-1979, the broadcaster was BBC while from 1980- 1988, Thames television was the broadcaster. The first Indian and the first Asian to be crowned the miss world title was Reita Feria, in the year 1966. As we all know in the year 1994, India again won the title with Aiswarya Rai, who was also awarded miss photogenic of the year. I think it's better to mention that 1994 was the lucky year for India as Susmita Sen won the Miss universe title. Here is a chance for you to know more about Miss World Winners.
