Miss Nederland is the annual national beauty pageant of the Netherlands.

History[edit]

The Netherlands debuted at Miss Universe in 1956. The national beauty pageant was called Miss Holland until 1990. Since 1991 it became known as Miss Netherlands. Since 2009, a new pageant system was founded as Miss Universe Nederland with Kim Kötter (Miss Netherlands 2002) as a president. Its name was changed in the same year to Miss Nederland when it also acquired the national franchise for Miss World. The winner represented the Netherlands both at Miss Universe and Miss World.

In 2010, the Miss Nederland organization also acquired the national franchise for Miss Earth, thus the Miss Nederland 2010 winner, Desirée van den Berg represented her country at Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss Earth.

Since 2011, three winners are chosen, to conform to the qualities emphasized by Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss Earth.

In 2012, the organization lost the Miss Earth franchise, and now only crowns two winners, Miss Nederland Universe and Miss Nederland World.
