History of Miss Dominican Republic

A number of changes were made to the pageant in the year 2000. Each contestant must represent either
a city, province, or municipality which is their birthplace or the location where they grew up. The winner of
the Miss Dominican Republic beauty pageant would then advance into other pageants, such as Miss Universe.
In the early years of this beauty pageant, the contest would begin with the contestants wearing dresses.
Afterwards they would wear swimsuits. Beginning in the 1970s, after the swimsuit wear, they would then
dress in provincial outfits.

Throughout the 1970s and 80s, whoever emerged victorious in the provincial costume phase would advance
into Miss Universe, Miss International, or Miss World. Beginning in 1995, an emphasis was placed on beautiful
young women who were unable to pay the entry fees. A charity called El Sueno de una Chica Bella(The Dream
of a Beautiful Girl) was founded in order to get these ladies into the pageant. They picked the poorest girls to
enter so that they could have a chance at a better life. The Miss Dominican Republic organization that
represents Miss Universe is Miss Republica Dominicana Universo.
