Aneta Beata Kręglicka (born on 23 March 1965) won the Miss World contest[1] on 22 November 1989 in Hong Kong, representing Poland. She became the first and only woman from Poland to win the title and the oldest titleholder when she was crowned on November 22, 1989 at the age of 24 years, 244 days. In the same year, she was first runner-up at Miss International 1989 held in Kanazawa, Japan.

Early life[edit]

She studied economics at Gdańsk University and began graduate studies in Szkoła Główna Handlowa (Warsaw School of Economics) in Poland. She was a member of the contemporary dance group at Gdańsk University before entering the Miss Poland pageant.

Miss World[edit]

In July 1989, she was crowned as Miss Polonia 1989. In September she traveled to Japan to represent her country at Miss International 1989, almost winning the crown for Poland, becoming the first runner-up to Iris Klein of Germany.

After this experience, she had to prepare immediately for Miss World, held in Hong Kong, and on 22 November 1989 won the title of Miss World 1989.[2] For a year she traveled the world, fulfilling her obligations and helping the Miss World Organization with their charitable causes.

Life after Miss World[edit]

In 2006, she took part in the third season of the Polish version of Dancing With The Stars. She was also one of the judges at Miss World 2006, held in Poland that year.

She has one son, Alexander, with her husband, director Maciej Żak.
