Big Four international beauty pageants

The Big Four consists of the four major international beauty pageants for women – Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Earth. The group was first described by the China Daily newspaper in 2004 as "the world's four major beauty contests", and the Chosun Ilbo newspaper in 2010 described them as "the world's top four beauty pageants".
