Miss Egypt, (Arabic: ملكة جمال مصر‎, IPA: [ˈmæleket ɡæˈmæːl ˈmɑsˤɾ]) is an Egyptian beauty pageant that qualifies delegates to international beauty contests. The first Miss Egypt contest was held in 1929. The only winner that held the title of Miss World was Antigone Costanda in 1954. The pageant has been sponsored by the hair care company, Pantene since 1986. Many of the winners have found notable careers in television. It also introduced models and actresses such as Marina Papaelia and Iolanda Gigliotti.

Miss Egypt Organization currently sends delegates to Miss Universe and Miss World beauty pageants.
