Miss Egypt, (Arabic: ملكة جمال مصر‎, IPA: [ˈmæleket ɡæˈmæːl ˈmɑsˤɾ]) is an Egyptian beauty pageant that qualifies delegates to international beauty contests.

History[edit]

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.

In 2012 - 2013 NO pageant, due to revolution conflicts in Egypt.

In 2014 Miss Egypt returns after two years absence, organized by Miss Egypt Organization Face to face (modelling agency).

Titleholders[edit]

The following is a list of winners from 1986 to 2011, since Pantene acquired the naming rights and the competition.
