World’s First Ever AI Beauty Pageant Names Its 10 Finalists

The Fanvue Miss AI pageant, the world’s first beauty pageant for AI-generated female models, judges contestants on beauty, social media clout, and their creator’s use of AI tools.

At first, they said artificial intelligence was coming after our jobs, but now it seems that not even beauty pageants are safe. Originally announced back in April 2024 by Fanvue, a subscription-based platform for creators, the world’s first beauty pageant for AI-generated avatars made international news headlines and sparked controversy online. But, based on the popularity of AI models like Aitana Lopez and Emily Pellegrini on social media, this type of event was bound to happen at some point. About 1,500 AI-generated girls were submitted by creators from all over the world, but only 10 of them made the finalist list.

Aiyana Rainbow (Romania)

Aiyana is a voice for LGBT acceptance, promoting love and diversity in all forms

The top three contestants stand to win a total of $20,000 in prizes, with the creator of the one crowned Miss AI expected to walk away with $5,000. But this event is about more than cash prizes, as winning the world’s first beauty pageant for AI-generated female models is bound to open up new opportunities in the fast-growing AI space.

Anne Kerdi (France)

Anne’s primary goal is to promote the French region of Brittany. She presents Brittany in as many aspects as possible: tourism, history, culture, events, gastronomy, and more.

“What the awards have done is uncover creators none of us were aware of that have compelling backstories, along with talented creators behind them creating content for their fans,” Fanvue co-creator Will Monange said. “That’s the beauty of the AI creator space. It’s enabling creative people to enter the creator economy with their AI-generated creations without having to be the face themselves.”

Olivia C (Portugal)

An AI traveler in a big real world, Olivia is paving the way for a future in which the digital and human realms co-exist in beautiful harmony.

AI is already being described as the new frontier in content and influencer marketing, with the most often cited advantages being models’ availability 24/7, low maintenance compared to real people, and being able to show up virtually everywhere, anytime. The tech is still not perfect, as most AI-generated models are still easy to recognize as “fake”, but the technology is evolving at breakneck speeds.

Kenza Layli (Morocco)

With over 190,000 social media followers, Kenza Layli is one-third of the World’s first AI family and has quickly become a prominent figure online.

Despite the popularity of AI-generated avatars, the world’s first Miss AI pageant has drawn its share of criticism from people accusing it of further exacerbating the unrealistic beauty standards set by social media.

Aliya Lou (Brazil)

Ailya is a Japanese-Afro-Brazilian artist, focused on post-photography and performance.

Zara Shatavari (India)

Zara Shatavari was created to serve as the influential face of the natural supplement product ‘Hermones’ designed to address women’s hormonal imbalances.

Seren Ay (Turkey)

Seren Ay is the first AI brand ambassador in Turkey

Asena IIik (Turkey)

Asena’s goal is to show the world that such a model can become an influencer with the help of imagination, stunning visuals and a sense of entertainment, not by selling sex.

Eliza Khan (Bangladesh)

Eliza Khan is one of Bangladesh’s first AI influencers. She’s designed to be quirky, just like any of us, designed to be relatable and realistic.

Lalina (France)

“Lalina’s creator was curious to see if they could create something as realistic as possible. They gradually developed their own artistic vision.

The results of the Fanvue Miss AI pageant are expected by the end of this month.
