Miss Angola is a national beauty pageant in Angola. The pageant was founded in 1997, and has sent its winners to Miss Universe since its foundation. From 1998 to 2012, its first runners-up were sent to Miss World.

Miss Angola has produced one Miss Universe winner; Leila Lopes of Benguela Province was crowned Miss Universe 2011, becoming the first black African to win Miss Universe since 1999.

History[edit]

Miss Angola was first founded in 1998, as the sole Angolan franchise owner to Miss Universe and Miss World. Within its first decade of competing internationally, Miss Angola had amassed six placements across the two pageants. In 2011, Leila Lopes was crowned Miss Universe 2011, becoming the first Angolan woman to win a major international pageant.

In 2013, Miss Angola separated its main Miss Angola pageant from the newly created Miss Angola Mundo competition, which was designed to select the Angolan contestant for Miss World.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b Isménia Júnior was originally the first runner-up at Miss Angola 2005, but went on to compete in Miss Universe 2006 after the original winner Stiviandra Oliveira was too young to compete, being only 17. Oliveira went on to compete in Miss World 2006 instead.
