Denmark is yet to win the Miss Universe crown but in 1963, Aino Korwa almost had it for Denmark when she won the first runner-up. At Miss Earth, the country has this distinct achievement of winning the first ever Miss Earth crown thanks to the beauty and intelligence of Catharina Svensson. At Miss International, the highest achievement for Denmark was when Pia Rosenberg Larsen became first runner-up in 1986.
