Miss Russia (Russian: Мисс Россия) is a national beauty pageant in Russia. It selects the Russian representatives to compete in two of the Big Four international beauty pageants: Miss World and Miss Universe.

History[edit]

The Miss Russia crown

The pageant has been running since 1992; however, there was no Miss Russia 1994,[citation needed] 2000[1] or 2008.

Since 2007, the winner of Miss Russia represents her country in both Miss World and Miss Universe. However, if she is unable to participate, a runner-up is sent instead.

Russia has won three major international titles: Miss World 1992, Miss Universe 2002, although later dethroned, and Miss World 2008.

It is estimated that every Miss Russia auditions over 80,000-100,000 applicants are being processed annually.
