Miss World 2005, the 55th edition of the Miss World pageant was held at the Crown of Beauty Theatre in Sanya, People's Republic of China on December 10, 2005. Nine former Miss World titleholders and chairwoman of Miss World Organization Julia Morley judged the pageant. Miss World 2004 María Julia Mantilla of Peru crowned her successor Unnur Birna Vilhjálmsdóttir of Iceland. 102 contestants from all over the world competed for the crown. The six "Regional Queens" were chosen by the judges while the twelve semi-finalists were determined by public or viewer votes through the Internet and as well as telephone and SMS voting. Three contestants were "Fast Tracked" to the semifinals with the remaining twelve determined by the global vote. The contestants also paid a visit to Wenzhou, Beijing and Shanghai.

All contestants competed in three "fast track" events, Beach Beauty, Miss Talent, and Beauty With a Purpose contests. The winner of each competition immediately became one of the fifteen pageant semifinalists.
Two other delegates were picked from each continental zone to complete the top fifteen. The judges then selected the six final Regional Winners who participated in the last round of competition. In the end, the Runners-up of Miss World 2005 were announced first, followed by the winner of the Miss World 2005 crown.
