Avril Marco, a 17 year old beauty from Santiago del Estero has been crowned as Miss World Argentina 2017 in a pageant held in city of Mendoza. A total 24 contestants participated in the contest. Natalia Comuzzi of Buenos Aires is the first runner-up while Brenda Maria González of Santa Fe is the second runner-up. Completing the Top 5 are Giovanna Mancino Moreira of Tierra Del Fuego and Ticiana Pettina of Mendoza.
Argentina has two Miss World titleholders. Norma Cappagli won the first Miss World crown for Argentina in 1960. This was seconded by Silvana Suárez who won in 1978. But ever since the 5th runner-up finish of Caterina Ciscato in 1987, no Argentine woman has ever made it to the semis of Miss World.
