The Miss Cosmos Pageant is rumored to have begun in 1951. The winner was a beauty from Argentina who bested 23 other contestants at the Miami Beach Auditorium, now known as the Jackie Gleason Theatre. The competition went on until 1965 with beauties from all over the world competing for the prestigious title before the pageant disappeared from popular culture. This competition was almost always held outside of the United States, thus making it a truly international competition event for misses all over the world. It was not however very well known in the US and many of the records provided to Crown Garland at the time of purchase are unable to be substantiated. In 2007, Annastasia Mason, then the reigning Ms. World 2007, brought the pageant back into operation and scheduled to move it back into the limelight. Ms. Mason thrust the pageant back into the public eye when she attended the pageant in Greece, ending her reign as Ms. World 2007. She became known as “Ms. Cosmos” to the locals and was asked to move forward with representing this title to further awareness for Domestic Violence worldwide. Mason reigned as Ms. Cosmos 2008 and went on to work with international charities and had the opportunity to model internationally. Mason then decided to purchase the rights to move forward with producing the pageant to help other women gain this awesome microphone for the cause of her choosing and owned the pageant until early 2018 when Crown Garland LLC purchased the pageant and marks and began the rebranding and relaunch of the pageant.
