As the biggest pageant in the world, it is not surprising if Miss World has the most number participants in the last 10 years. In fact, there are a total of 1042 girls competing in the last 10 editions of Miss World, which means almost each edition from the last decade has more than 100 participating countries. Imagine how hard it is to pick only 15 out of those thousands and declare them as the most beautiful Miss World contestants from the last decade. Regardless, our specially selected members have been invited to do this difficult task and they finally come with a final choice - Top 15 Most Beautiful Miss World Contestants from The Last Decade.
The 15 women in our list represent each and every single edition from the last decade. Each year, from 2001 until 2010, has at least one representative in the list. Some years, however, have more than one name in the list. Three editions, 2006, 2009, and 2010, have 2 names each in the list while the successful edition belongs to the 2008 edition. It has 3 names in the list.
Based on the regions which these women come from, the continent with the most delegates in the list is no other than the continent where Miss World itself originated, Europe. The old continent performs strongly with 6 names in the list, followed closely by its eternal rival in pageants, the Americas, with 4 names. Asia comes in third with 2 names, while the other regions, Africa, Oceania, and Caribbean, each shares a single representative.
We will reveal our choice in 3 parts, and in this first part let's meet the first 5 women from the lower tier of our list. These beauties are ...
