Chloe Marshall of the UK has just won the Miss Surrey 2008 beauty pageant. She is now advancing towards the Miss England contest, which is opened to females ages 17-24. If Chloe Marshall can win the Miss England 2008 pageant, she will advance to the Miss World Final.
I wanted to go through to the Miss England finals to break the stereotype that you have to be tall and skinny to be considered beautiful. I wanted to make a bit of a statement. When I studied the other entrants for the competition I concluded that, pretty as they were, they were all uniformly blonde and Barbie doll-like. I want to show girls out there that it is possible to be beautiful and not a standard size zero.
Chloe is a plus size model, she is 5’10” and is a 38dd. She is a size 16 and also at the age of 16. She signed up with the Models Plus agency and looks to have done the right thing. According to the Models Plus spokeswoman, real size woman are in desperate need in the business.
Its nice to see a girl with a little bit of meat on her bones, and not a frilly tooth pick blowing around in a light breeze.
Best of luck to you Chloe! We are rooting for you!
