The MGI 2023 court is comprised of Ni Ni Lin Eain (1st runner-up, Myanmar), Maria Alejandra Lopez (2nd runner-up, Colombia), Stephanie Marie (3rd runner-up, USA), and Le Hoang Phuong (4th runner-up, Vietnam).

The lucky ladies who made it to the Top 10 were the delegates from Indonesia, Dominican Republic, Thailand, Angola, and Netherlands; while the candidates from Puerto Rico, Nigeria, Czech Republic, Honduras, Laos, India, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, France, and Spain rounded up the placements in the semi-final round (Top 20).

Luciana now joins the ranks of Grand titleholders that include Janelee Chaparro (2013, Puerto Rico), Daryanne Lees (2014, Cuba), Claire Perkins (2015, Australia, dethroned), Ariska Putri Pertiwi (2016, Indonesia), Maria Jose Lora (2017, Peru), Clara Sosa (2018, Paraguay), Valentina Figueroa (2019, Venezuela), Abena Appiah (2020, USA), Tien Thuy Thuc Nguyen (2021, Vietnam), and Isabella Menin (2022, Brazil).
