miss world 1983

Sarah-Jane Hutt, from Poole, England, was the fourth delegate of the United Kingdom to win the Miss World pageant in 1983. Her victory caused a stir among other contestants, citing that she was not really the most beautiful among the group, with a delegate refusing to attend the coronation ball held thereafter, and another one challenging the judges' decision. She is a former pupil of the Mountbatten School in Romsey, Hampshire.
