You know those articles where a woman writes that something that’s generally considered to be shady is really friggin’ fantastic? Yeah, us Frisky ladies tend to be skeptical. Maybe being a mail-order bride really did turn out well for that woman featured in Marie Claire last month! But don’t kid yourself that you’re not an exception to the rule.
We’ve got similar “meh” feelings for the way Terri Graham, a member of More.com’s reader community, confronted her anorexia, bulimia and body dysmorphic disorder: competing in “countless” beauty pageants and strutting across the stage in a swimsuit and heels caused Graham to stop hating her body.

Sasha is a 34A. Kayla’s a 32C. Kristi’s a 32D.
Sasha, Kayla and Kristi are ages 13, 14 and 16, respectively. And they’re all vying for the title Miss Teen Queen U.K.
Miss Teen Queen U.K. is a “Hot Or Not”-style online beauty pageant which some are criticizing for it’s Lolita-esque practices. The teen girls’ bra sizes are posted up on the pageant site along with their shoe and dress sizes, plus some pictures that often look straight out of a Maxim photo shoot. For example, 14-year-old Rebecca lies on her back, wearing a short black dress and dark nail polish, high heeled legs up against the wall, gazing into the camera. We feel icky just looking at her.

Everyone’s still talking about Miss California’s gay marriage comments. Now there’s more drama for 21-year-old beauty queen Carrie Prejean. Apparently, there were some nice perks for her as former Miss California. The state’s pageant organization paid her bill for fake boobs.
Prejean received breast implants paid for by the Miss California Organization just weeks before she competed in the Miss USA pageant, confirmed Shanna Moakler, co-executive director of organization. Shanna told “Access Hollywood” that Carrie wanted breasts implants and the Miss California Organization “supported that decision.” Shanna, herself a former Miss USA and an ex-Playboy Playmate, added, “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today is very common.” Keep reading »
Thereâ€™s a new queen in England, and sheâ€™s got more poise than Her Majesty and more cleavage than Elton John. Itâ€™s 17-year-old, size 16 beauty queen Chloe Marshall! Sheâ€™ll be strutting her stuff in the Miss England Pageant in July, but sheâ€™s already become a media darling. â€œWhat I am promoting is a healthy girl who looks after herself and doesn’t try to force her body to be something its not,â€ Chloe told Hello Magazine, which was excited to get her to slip into something less comfortable — the white rhinestone bikini sheâ€™ll be confidently wearing in the competition. Proudly flying in the face of skinny minnie pageant girls like the tragically dumb blonde Miss Teen South Carolina, Chloe is a refreshingly smart spokesmodel who is bravely going where no plus-size girl has gone before. This pretty warrior princess couldnâ€™t be happier to show off her ambition. â€œIt’s what I was born to do â€“ posing for the camera. And as I keep saying, I love my body. People seem desperate to get me to say that I don’t, that deep down I’m not happy and would rather be thin, but the fact is I wouldn’t change myself at all.â€ We wouldnâ€™t change a thing either, hot stuff!

Being sent to the bleak womenâ€™s prison UF-91/9 in Siberia doesnâ€™t exactly sound as elegant as Martha Stewartâ€™s Camp Cupcake. But once a year, at their annual “Miss Spring” Beauty Pageant, the women put on more girlie trimmings than even one of the TV homemaker’s creations. What started with a dress made from scraps of kitchen trash bags has become a glamorous fashion show with a few outfits per contestant. At this female-run pageant you wonâ€™t find a swimsuit competition, but there are three creative categories based on Greek myths, flowers, and futuristic prison uniforms. The convicted, uh, cuties, who are serving time for everything from possession of narcotics to murder, compete for the title, which comes with quite a prize: a chance at early parole. But win or lose, there are fringe benefits for everyone since the local TV channel and the BBC air the Miss Gulag Pageant to showcase the prisoners during prime time. [BBC] Keep reading »
