The 20 official contestants competing for the 2013 Miss Hong Kong crown made their appearance at the press conference held on July 4.
Following a stringent preliminary selection process and a second round of interview, 17 local beauties and 3 overseas contestants were selected by judges.

The overseas contestants include #12 Karen Leung (梁家欣) from Scotland, #10 Michelle Liem (林伊麗) and #19 Natalie Sui (蕭穎詩) from the United States.
