Miss Gibraltar is a national beauty pageant in Gibraltar.
The winners of Miss Gibraltar competed at Miss Universe from 1981 to 1990. In 1984 Jessica Palao awarded Congeniality award at Miss Universe 1984 at James L. Knight Center, Miami, Florida, United States.
In 2009, the 59th Miss World pageant was held on December 12, at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. 112 contestants worldwide competed for the crown, marking the biggest turnout in the pageant's history. Gibraltar's Kaiane Aldorino, aged 23, was crowned Miss World 2009. Kaiane won Miss World Beach Beauty en route to the top prize sparking off mass celebrations in Gibraltar as the population watched the event live on television.
Kaiane was flown to Gibraltar from London on a private jet on 17 December where she was greeted at Gibraltar Airport by the Government, family and friends. From there, Kaiane was paraded down Main Street in an open-top car (the same one used by Charles and Diana when they visited Gibraltar to embark the Royal Yacht Britannia to start their honeymoon cruise) preceded by the band of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment and then appeared at the City Hall balcony. The celebrations culminated with a fireworks display from Gibraltar Harbour.
Besides the main winners, the pageant's runners-up were occasionally sent to compete at the international stage, such as the 2013 1st runner-up, Jamielee Randall, who was placed among the top 15 finalists at Miss International 2013 in Tokyo, Japan, and the 2022 1st runner-up, Jaylynn Cruz, was sent to compete at Miss Grand International 2023 in Vietnam.
