This new beauty world record took almost 50 years to achieve – it was Miss World 2013 Megan Young’s groundbreaking win on Saturday that sealed the deal.
After Young bagged the crown in Miss World, the country now has 9 titleholders. Venezuela tops the “most successful” record with 19 wins, followed by the US’ 14. Meanwhile, Brazil holds the record for the first country to bring home crowns from the “Big Four” pageants: Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Earth.
But no other country has ever won five major international pageants before the Philippines. Here are the past and present Filipina beauty queens:
