The 19th annual Miss World pageant was held for the first time at the Royal Albert Hall on November 22, 1969 on BBC. 50 delegates vied for the crown won by Eva Rueber-Staier of Austria.

She went on to win the Miss World pageant that same year. During her tenure, Eva starred in the Bob Hope USO tour in Vietnam. On 1st January 1973, then aged 23 she married film producer Ronald ("Ronnie") Fouracre, (15 years her senior), at Caxton Hall register office, London. Her acting career contains a recurring James Bond credit: she played General Gogol's assistant Rubelvitch in the films The Spy Who Loved Me, For Your Eyes Only, and Octopussy. She has lived in an Elizabethan Grade II listed house in Pinner for 23 years with her current husband, publisher Brian Cowan and loved son Alexander. She also appeared naked in the soft-porn Mayfair magazine in the UK. Eva also played the Cadburys Flake girl in the 1980s Austrian Skiing advert directed by Ridley Scott.
