Videos: 41 Years Ago Bermuda Won Miss World

November 15, 2020

41 years ago today [Nov 15] Miss Bermuda Gina Swainson won the Miss World contest, becoming the first, and to this date, the only Bermudian to ever win a major international beauty pageant, and the photos and videos below can give you a walk down memory lane to see the crowning moment.

Also notable as one of the few pageant contestants from around the world to place extremely well in both world pageants, Ms Swainson also placed second in the Miss Universe 1979 Pageant held in Australia.

When Ms Swainson returned to the island for the first time after being crowned Miss World in 1979, she was met at the airport by senior politicians and a motorcade took her to Hamilton where she was driven through the streets in a horse-drawn carriage to the delight of residents who lined the parade route.
