Founded in 1998 Global Beauties has been, ever since, the leading online resource for international beauty pageants´information and analysis.

Founded by Henrique Fontes from Brazil and Edwin Dominguez from Panama, Global Beauties has been for nearly two decades the premiere source of fresh and reliable pageant-related information and news.

It provides comprehensive coverage of the major international pageants, as well as updates with the latest news, contestants galleries, interactive contests, special coverage, articles and much more.

The Global Beauties Awards, known as the “Oscars” of beauty pageants, give  distinction to the Best of the Year, from delegates and musical guests, to national costumes, gowns and pageant production.

Global Beauties also created in the year 1999 the “Grand Slam of Beauty pageants™”, which comprehends the five major international contests in the world: Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss Supranational, Miss Grand International, and Miss International in the women´s category, and Mr World, Mister Supranational, Mister International, Mister Global and Manhunt International on the men´s side.

In April 2018, South African Andre Sleigh became co-owner of Global Beauties after acquiring 50% of Global Beauties following Ed Dominguez’s decision to focus on other interests.
