It’s official!!!! Miss Universe Organization has revealed on its social media the next destination for her pageant… and we’re flying to the United States, more precisely to New Orleans. This city synonymous with a grandiose carnival will host the 71st edition of Miss Universe on January 14, 2023. This date was chosen so as not to clash with the FIFA World Cup to be held next November and December in Qatar.
More than 90 women will vie for the title of Miss Universe at the event, to be held at the Ernest N Morial Convention Centre. They will compete in various categories, including evening gown and swimwear. They will also take part in an in-depth interview session. The evening will culminate with the 70th Miss Universe, Sandhu, crowning her successor.
Through the press release, she quoted, “My time as Miss Universe has been an incredible experience and I am so grateful for all the opportunities I have received as a result of this platform.”

Located along the Mississippi River, New Orleans is known for its history, musical traditions and festivals, including the Mardi Gras. A former French and Spanish colony, it is nicknamed The Big Easy, an ode to its laid-back culture, or NoLa, which stands for New Orleans, Louisiana.
“The City of New Orleans and the Miss Universe Organisation share common values of celebrating inclusion, culture and the empowerment of women,” said New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, the first female mayor in the city’s 300-year history.
“Former Miss Universe delegates and winners have gone on to become surgeons, diplomats, politicians and business leaders, and they all champion social causes that are important to them. Hosting this event demonstrates the significant global impact an international city like New Orleans has on the world’s tourism and cultural stages.“
In another turn of events, the 72nd edition which will take place in 2023, will also allow moms and wives to compete in the pageant as long as they’re aged between 18 and 28.
