Miss Europe is a beauty pageant with female contestants from all over Europe. It was established in February 1929[citation needed] by French journalist Maurice de Waleffe (1874-1946[1]), who also created, in 1920, what by 1927 had become the Miss France pageant. Miss Europa was first held at the Paris Opera with participants from 18 countries. The most recent pageant was held in 2006.[2]

The contest was interrupted by the onset of World War II but later re-established by Mr. Zeigler (of the Moulin Rouge) and Claude Berr. Most contestants won their respective national contests for Miss World, and participated as supplemental training for their respective competitions. After the death of Berr, Roger Zeigler sold the license for the pageant to Endemol France, part of the Dutch television production company Endemol, in 2003. The reigning Miss Europe 2017 is Diana Kubasova from Latvia, she was crowned by Miss Europe 2016 Diana Starkova from France on May 13. 1st runner up Miss Europe 2017 is Alena Senatorova from Germany and 2rd runner up is Nina Gorinuyk from Ukraine.
