Miss World Mexico is one of the international beauty pageants under the Miss Mexico Organization Umbrella, a national Beauty pageant in Mexico. Miss Mexico Organization is responsible for selecting the country's delegates to international beauty contests: Miss World, Mister World, and other international pageants such as Miss Supranational and Miss United Continents.
In association with Telemax and Televisa, the Miss México pageant directed by Hugo Castellanos is one of biggest pageants in Mexico; 32 women from 31 states and Mexico D.F. compete for the title of Miss México or Miss World Mexico.
Miss World is the oldest running international beauty pageant. It was created in the United Kingdom by Eric Morley in 1951. Since his death in 2000, Morley's widow, Julia Morley, has co-chaired the pageant. Along with Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Earth, this pageant is one of the Big Four international beauty pageants—the most coveted beauty titles when it comes to international pageant competitions.
