Miss Europe

Miss Europe is a beauty pageant with female contestants from all over Europe. It was established in February 1927 (or 1929 ) by French journalist Maurice de Waleffe (1874-1946[1]), who also created, in 1920, what by 1927 had become the Miss France pageant. Miss Europa was first held at the Paris Opera with participants from 18 countries.

The contest was interrupted by the onset of World War II but later re-established by Mr. Zeigler (of the Moulin Rouge) and Claude Berr. Most contestants won their respective national contests for Miss World, and participated as supplemental training for their respective competitions. After the death of Berr, Roger Zeigler sold the license for the pageant to Endemol France, part of the Dutch television production company Endemol, in 2003.

The current titleholder is Andrea De Las Heras from Spain. [2]
