Pageantry[edit]

Miss Europe World 2018[edit]

Luissa Burton represented the United Kingdom at the Miss Europe World 2018 pageant aired on MTV (Lebanon) in Beirut, Lebanon. She was crowned by Miss Europe World 2017, Maria Slusnyte.

Miss Earth England 2016[edit]

Luissa Burton participated at Miss Earth United Kingdom where she won the Miss Earth England 2016 title. She then flew to the Philippines to compete at the Miss Earth 2016 pageant where she competed with 82 other candidates. In the entire pre-pageant activities of Miss Earth pageant, Luissa was able to get a gold medal for the national costume competition and a bronze medal for the talent competition. She also placed in the top 16 for the first time ever for the England sash at the world final held at the Mall of Asia arena in Manila.

As a Miss Earth delegate, the representative should have an environmental advocacy that serves as her focus as part of the pageant's environmental awareness. Luissa Burton's advocacy was "Green is the new black", which was about raising awareness for environmental issues in the fast fashion and textile industry. This is due to her background in modelling since the age of 14 where she noted products were still tested on animals, lots of fur was being used and fast fashion was causing a lot of unnecessary pollution.

The Miss Earth crown was won by Katherine Espín of Ecuador.[4][5][6][7]
