Beauty Pageants: A Round-up

It feels like there has been a lot of beauty pageant news lately, so here is a roundup with pictures (all from the articles linked, where credit is given).

Miss California, Carrie Prejean.

Anti-Miss Korea Festival in South Korea. (via Women's Health News.)

Saudi Arabia's Miss Beautiful Morals.

EDIT 5/12/09: Miss Tiffany's Universe Pageant for transwomen in Thailand which is not only a beauty pageant, but seeks to promote human rights and a better image for transwomen around the world. (I missed this one, but Monica Roberts from TransGriot pointed it out in comments.)

What do you think about these different takes on beauty pageants? Leave thoughts in the comments.

Miss Earth 2009 said...

The upcoming beauty pageant that will happen in Philippines is the Miss Earth 2009.

A great challenge to the lucky candidate in pursuing the campaign of cleaning and maintaining our Mother Earth.
