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.
