Miss World Quotes

The best Miss World quotes from the world's most beautiful and famous women.

I don't think I'm the most beautiful girl in the world...I am the most beautiful girl here.

Catharina Lodders, 1962 Miss World after winning the Miss world crown

No, I did not. I was totally shocked when my name was announced as the name of Miss World 2005. In the weeks before the big final I knew that a few people considered me a favorite, including Global Beauties, but there is a huge gap between being a favorite and actually being the winner. But it was the most awesome and fulfilling surprise ever for me, I am enjoying every minute of it!

Unnur Birna, Miss World 2005, on being asked if she expected to win.
I always knew I would be successful. So there was no element of surprise.

I'm just average woman with average concerns.

I don't believe in proving a point to anybody. Nobody is that important.

Life will take its toll on all of us. We get injured, we get old. It's really sad to try to run away from these harsh realities of life. Looks are not everything. I am not going to look beautiful all the time.

Aishwarya, Miss World 1994

I did not hear my name at first, I just heard it echo around the room. I only knew it was me because nobody else moved! Then it all came true “It is wonderful to know that so many people voted for me in the text vote and put me through to the top two in Northern Europe. I was pleased to win the title of Miss World Northern Europe. Then to win Miss World is incredible. I just feel wonderful. It came as a big shock but the feeling is incredible. I am numb.

Favorite Quote:
You are what you do or You are what you make.

Unnur Birna Vilhjalmsdottir, Miss World 2005

The Miss World crown is an immense responsibility. I'm looking forward to every bit of it.

Priyanka Chopra, 2000

You also have to remember you know that you're a 'celebrity', for want of a better word, People don't have to care what you're doing or look up to you or want to emulate you, admire you or all of that. It is a tremendous gift and a privilege and I think that you have a responsibility if you find yourself in that position because, remember, you know you did a number of things to put yourself in that position. So having made your bed, you must now find a way to lie down in it. I believe that.

Cindy Breakspeare, Jamaica, Miss World 1976

I hope to represent the women of the world in a good way. I wish people in the world would be more respectful to each other.

Azra Akin, Turkey, Miss World 2002

I am so happy. It's a wonderful feeling and it’s indescribable ..… I have made history .. Black is beautiful.

Agbani Darego, NIgeria, Miss World 2001

I could see the amazed look on their faces when they announced my name.They were jumping up and down punching the air with joy. I don't know who was more happy - them or me.

Rosanna Davison, Ireland, Miss World 2003, referring to the joy of her parents.

The fact that I am the first Miss World to be decided by a global vote makes this award unbelievably precious. I will cherish the memories of tonight. Now that I have become a genuine world ambassador I intend to do everything in my power to promote the good causes that have been the driving force for Miss World for over half a century. I only hope that I can do the job with the dignity and panache that Rosanna Davison has done for the last year.
