Alia Guindi bested 13 other finalists to win Miss Universe Switzerland 2022 on Friday, September 2 at La Marive in Yverdon-les-Bains.

The 19-year-old model and dance teacher from Fully was a finalist at Top Model Europe 2020 and a Top 6 finalist at Miss Suisse Francophone 2021. She will now prepare to represent Switzerland at the 71st Miss Universe pageant. 

Nicole Zimmermann and Tiphaine Sagne were respectively the first and second runners-up while Zolanny Encarnación and Sashi Chiesa completed the Top 5.

Former Miss International from Puerto Rico Lauri Simpson graced the event as part of the international panel of jury. She was joined by former Miss Universe Spain Sofía del Prado, former Mister Colombia International Rey Rodríguez and reigning Miss Mundo Colombia Camila Andrea Pinzon.

Switzerland last competed in Miss Universe with Jastina Doreen Riederer in 2018. Since its debut in 1953, the country has not won the international title yet. So far its highest placement was second runner-up in 2006 with Lauriane Gilliéron.
