Best Model of the World

Best Model of the World

From the Best Model of the World 1990 program book:
In the first two years of this contest, only unmarried models could participate due to the name MISS Model of the World.  Our international sponsors and especially the world-famous modelling agencies rightfully argued that since this is a contest of the modelling competency both the married and single models should be able to participate.  By taking this argument into consideration, the organization committee and the fashion consultant decided to modify the title as THE BEST MODEL instead of MISS MODEL.

Every model over the age of eighteen has the right to participate at the contest.

The 1988 and 1989 pageants held under the name Miss Model of the World are counted as the 1st and 2nd of Best Model of the World.  The data for these 2 pageants are in the Miss Model of the World pages.
