Kimberley Busteed is an Australian beauty pageant titleholder who won Miss Australia 2007 and represented Australia in the 2007 Miss Universe pageant. She is from Gladstone in Queensland, Australia and is a former teen swimming champion and surf lifesaving competitor.

While competing in Mexico during the Miss Universe 2007 contest, she was heavily criticized for wearing her "tacky" national costume. Some of Australia's top designers branded the red lifesaving themed costume as "trashy" and "nothing to do with Australia's culture".

She won the Miss Universe Australia 2007 title shortly after the death of her grandfather. She missed his funeral while competing for the national title in Perth, but her family urged her to compete.

Near the end of 2008, Busteed obtained a position as a TV presenter on Channel 7's "Creek to Coast."Busteed is the second cousin of Australian children's author Alexander S. Foxhall.
