Miss Universe Denmark is a national beauty pageant in Denmark that selects the representative to the Miss Universe. Since 2015, Miss Universe Denmark is selected by the Face of Denmark organization.


Since 2015 The Face of Denmark competition operates as its own production under Anders Hamilton de Voss and his partner John Paul Hamilton de Voss.

Aino Korva, the only Dane to place in the top 5 at Miss Universe, Žaklina Šojić, the last Dane to place in the top 15 at Miss Universe in 2007, are directly involved with the fundamentals of the new "Face of Denmark" competition.[1][2]


Since 2015 The Face of Denmark competition operates as its own production under Anders Hamilton de Voss and his partner John Paul Hamilton de Voss.

Between 1986 and 1995, Bo Andersen handled the Miss Universe Denmark franchise, where such notable Danish icons, who were not Miss Denmark, but competed at Miss Universe, were found, including supermodel Helena Christensen and Danish T.V. personality Maria Hirse.

From 1996 until 2013, Memborg models operated the franchise.[3]

Supermodel Helena Christensen began her career in 1986 as Miss Universe Denmark. In the same year, Pia Rosenberg Larsen won Miss Denmark and competed at Miss International, where she placed as first runner-up. In 1993, T.V. personality and actress Maria Hirse won Miss Universe Denmark, but like Helena Christensen, failed to place at Miss Universe.[4][5]
