WORLD'S SECOND
MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who won the world's second Miss Universe Pageant?

Miss Universe is a pageant for only the most beautiful in the world. This pageant has been around since 1952 and is now owned by someone who knows a thing or two about beauty – Donald Trump, master of some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. But Donald Trump didn’t own the pageant yet in 1953, the second year of the Miss Universe pageant. Then it still belonged to Pacific Mills, a swimsuit company.

The second Miss Universe pageant was held at the Long Beach Municipal Auditorium in Long Beach, California on July 17, 1953. A total of 24 countries and 27 contestants entered the competition. Among those, Christiane Martel, Miss France, won the title of being the second Miss Universe at a mere 18 years of age. It wouldn’t be until two years later in 1955 that the Miss Universe pageant would be televised but the pageant is still held today and watched by people all over the globe.
