Notes[edit]

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, TV personality and actress Maria Hirse won Miss Universe Denmark, but like Helena Christensen, failed to place at Miss Universe.[11][12]

This contest is unrelated to the Miss Denmark pageant.
