Miss Brasil Pageant is a beauty contest that has been held since 1954 between winners of the pageants in the states of Brazil. The winner of Miss Brazil competes in the Miss Universe . The Miss Brazil, and Brazil itself, are responsible for one of the most successful campaigns in history of Miss Universe, with two winners and several runners-up, finalists and semifinalists. It was considered one of the best organized and most successful beauty pageants during the 1950s and 1960s and is believed that much of the fame of the beauty of Brazilian women comes from this. The current Miss Brazil, is from the state of Minas Gerais, Júlia Horta.

Competition to win the crown of Miss Brasil began in the 1920s, following a trend throughout the world during that period. A famous controversy occurred when Miss Brasil 1929 competed in the International Pageant of Pulchritude, known as "Miss Universe" in the 1930s, but failed to place in the competition, much less win.
The angered Brazilians hosted their own international pageant in 1930 leading to two separate "Miss Universe" titles that year, not related to the modern Miss Universe competition created in 1952. In the Brazilian "Miss Universe", Miss Brasil won the title while in the other competition in the USA, Miss United States received the crown of Miss Universe 1930. These competitions, like many others in the world, were discontinued as the Great Depression and World War II diverted the world's attention.
The modern Miss Brasil pageant was created in 1954 in the city of Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro. The first edition of Miss Brasil, won by Bahia's representative Martha Rocha, was sponsored by the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper.
Under Diários Associados
In the following year, Brazilian media businessman, mogul and journalist Assis Chateaubriand took the rights to the Miss Brasil pageant, when the winners qualified to the Miss Universe, Miss World (participation began at 1958) and Miss International pageants (participation begin in 1960, when the pageant was created). The magnate who created Diários Associados, was responsible for promotion of the national beauties until 1980, when the network Rede Tupi was lost its concession by order of Haroldo de Mattos, Brazilian minister of Communications at the time, due to its bankruptcy.
The Quintandinha's roots
The Miss Brasil first four editions (1954 to 1957) were held in Palácio Quitandinha, Petrópolis. When Chateaubriand's media group assumed the promotion of pageant, it was massified nationally by its magazines and newspapers coverages, especially in the now defunct O Cruzeiro and O Jornal.
Maracanãzinho's "golden years"
Miss Brazil's golden era began in 1958, when the pageant was moved from Petrópolis to the Federal District at the time, Rio de Janeiro. Rio Grande do Sul's Iêda Maria Vargas and Bahia's Martha Vasconcellos were winners of the 1963 and 1968 editions of Miss Universe (both held in the Carioca gymnasium). The same year that Vasconcellos was crowned, Guanabara State's Maria da Gloria Carvalho nabbed the Miss International title, while in 1971, Lucia Tavares Petterle was elected Miss World.
Adalgisa Colombo and Rejane Vieira Costa were 1st runners up at Miss Universe in 1958 and 1972 respectively. (See the winners table for 1959, 1962, 1971 and 1979 results).
Due to a fire in a part of Maracanãzinho's structure, the Miss Brazil 1970 pageant winner, Guanabara State's Eliane Fialho Thompson was crowned in an event edition held only one time in Pavilhão de São Cristóvão (São Cristóvão Pavilion), in a Carioca northern zone district. Its edition was the first nationally televised by Rede Tupi via a microwave system powered by Embratel.
In 1973, due to lack of public and media interest, and possible feminist protests, organizers moved the site to Ginásio Presidente Médici in the country's capital, Brasília. The Miss Brasil 1972 pageant (won by the gaúcha representative Rejane Vieira Costa) was the last held in Maracanãzinho's dependencies.
The Brasilia "decadence" and crisis
When the Miss Brasil pageant moved to the federal capital, Brasília, lack of public interest continued from 1973 to last edition in the city, held in 1980 (when Associados filed for bankruptcy protection due to closing of seven of Rede Tupi's owned and operated stations, except Bahia's TV Itapoan and TV Brasília, now Rede Record and Rede TV!'s, O&O and affiliate, respectively).
In the 1976 pageant, Helena Rubinstein cosmetics company retired its sponsorship of the Miss Brasil event. So, Catalina Swimwear brand continued its support to organization for some years until the mid-1980s, when the event broadcasting rights were assumed by SBT.
All Brazilian presidents of the period (except Ernesto Geisel) received the Miss Brasil state contestants in the Alvorada Palace days before the final nights, hosted by its coordinator at the time, Paulo Max, and actress Marly Bueno and telecasted by Tupi and its O&O, TV Brasília.
When the channels of defunct Tupi were redistributed for media businessman and TV animator Sílvio Santos and Russian-Brazilian journalist and owner of Manchete magazine Adolpho Bloch groups, on April 23, 1981, the new network SBT (one of the results of the Rede Associada inventory) owned the Miss Brasil until 1989.
For the Miss Brasil pageant the 1980s was known the most tacky period, by opinion of some fans and television critics. The last top 5 obtained by a Brazilian representative in Miss Universe was in 1981, by the Rio de Janeiro candidate in national pageant, Adriana Alves de Oliveira. Because of the lack of ratings and announcers, SBT retired the promotion of Miss Brasil in April 1990, after the country had not participated in Miss Universe 1990.
In this period, Miss Brazil pageant was held in separate pageants for Miss Universe (the most expected and important), Miss World and Miss International. SBT telecast to same state pageants, nationwide in Programa Sílvio Santos and locally by the affiliates, such as TV Alterosa (Minas Gerais) and TV Itapoan (Bahia).
Under Marlene Brito and others
In 1990, the SBT's former producer of the pageant, Marlene Brito, took the Miss Brasil rights and production until 1993, when Leila Schuster was crowned without realization of a traditional pageant, but she was indicated by the national direction for representative the country in Miss Universe 1993. From 1994, Miss Brasil was owned by various directors, including the former host in Tupi's period, Paulo Max.
The present directors, Nayla Micherif and Boanerges Gaeta Jr., assumed the functions by partnership in 2002. Since this year, the pageant national telecast is back, after some local broadcasts of it in the 1990s.
In the new era, Miss Brasil was broadcast first on Rede TV! and since 2003, Band network has assumed the television rights of the event, with venues in São Paulo (2003, 2004 and 2008), and Rio de Janeiro (2005-2007).;)
