Miss Universe is one of the “Big Four International Beauty Pageants” that is held annually. It was founded in 1952 by a clothing company in California called Pacific Mills. After few years, it became part of Kayser Roth and then passed to an American conglomerate company Gulf+Western Industries and finally, Donald Trump acquired the Miss Universe in 1996.
