Miss Brazil World (or Miss Mundo Brasil, in Portuguese) is a traditional beauty contest held annually which aims to choose the best candidate for it to represent their country with honor in the traditional international Miss World contest. The Brazilian representatives began to be sent from the year 1958, with girl from Pernambuco Sonia Maria Campos. Since 2004 who manages the sending of representatives to the international event is the team led by Henrique Fontes. The country has so far only an international crown, obtained with the Rio girl Lúcia Tavares Petterle in 1971.

For many years the Brazilian representatives at Miss World were the second and third placed in Miss Brazil Universe, a fact that occurred from 1958 to 1980 and from 1998 to 2005. Between 1981-1997, the Brazilian representative at the event was elected in a different contest of Miss Brazil Universe.
The event strives for originality and socio-environmental responsibility and was the first national beauty contest large to include in their official activities proofs of talent, sports and fashion, and encourage the practice of philanthropy (Beauty with a Purpose).
All this without counting the privilege and responsibility of representing Brazil - all their culture and biodiversity - at Miss World, who is currently considered the major beauty pageant on the planet, as pioneered worldwide, having its first edition held in 1951. Until the 2000s was due to the direction of the entrepreneur Erick Morley, was then passed to his wife, who currently heads, Julia Morley.
In 2006, due to discontent on the part of the Miss World Organization to the organization that promoted the contest in Brazil that sent second in the national competition for the event was a change of coordination and Brazilian representative in the contest came to be chosen from contest different from Miss Brazil.
The event is now held by the company MMB Beauty Promotions & Events. The new organization has made several changes in the competition modeled after the Miss World with the inclusion of qualifying races Fast Tracks and the inclusion of islands and steps in international competition.
Traditionally the second title of Miss Mundo Brasil will be crowning as Miss Supranational Brazil winner. Since 2014 the official candidate will be selecting by separate pageant. It called as Miss Supranational Brazil pageant.
