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.

  •      Declared winner
  •      Declared runner-up
  •      Declared semifinalist

The following women have represented Russia under Miss Russia Organization in the following international beauty pageants: Miss Universe and Miss World. Traditionally, winning Miss Russia gives titleholders the right to represent Russia at both Miss World and Miss Universe. However, since 2015, the winner of Miss Russia has been sent to Miss World, while the first runner-up has been sent to Miss Universe due to the dates of the two pageants often conflicting with each other.

Miss Universe Russia[edit]

Miss Universe began in 1952, and Russia debuted in the competition in 1994. Since their debut, they have placed eight times, securing one winner, one runner-up, and six semi-finalists.
