Beauty pageants are fairly unusual events at the best of times – young women, parading up and down, being judged on all sorts of things – it takes a special type of personality to want to be part of something like that but also to excel in that environment and win the pageant queen crown.
Much of the focus on beauty pageants is on appearance – what you look like – and obviously everyone has their little beauty secrets. But a beauty pageant in Hungary has taken this one step further and dedicated their pageant to women who have had cosmetic surgery.
The title of Miss Plastic Hungary was held in 2009 and was fiercely contested. In this article we take a look at how it all unfolded.
The contestants all had to have had some cosmetic surgery procedures in order to qualify to enter – face lifts, breast implants, or other body work. Just a few Botox injections would not be enough to qualify you. It is a slightly odd concept to be celebrating artificial enhancements when so many sports and competitions are actively fighting to remove any artificial advantage from competitors – this is one event that actively celebrates artificial advantage and surgical procedures to boost performance.
Twenty two competitors took part in the Miss Plastic Hungary beauty pageant. The ages of the contestants ranged from 19 to 38. The format of the pageant for Miss Plastic Hungary is very similar to every other beauty pageant that you have seen – there are a number of different categories that contestants have to perform in, giving them the opportunity to display what makes them special – whether that is evening wear or a swimsuit. Also public speaking is important so they have the opportunity to speak to the audience and talk about the things that are important to them.
If you have ever dreamed of becoming a beauty pageant queen but have never thought that you were pretty enough, then this could be the competition that you have been looking for – all you need to do is get some major surgery done (but still look natural) and you will be ready to hit the catwalk and strut your stuff in the beauty pageant that celebrates surgical enhancement in every shape and size. What are you waiting for – whether it is breast enhancement, a butt lift, some silicone implants to change the shape and definition of your body, this is the competition that is perfect for you.read more info at http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/surgically-enhanced-beauty-queens-vie-for-the-miss-plastic-hungary-crown/article4279952/.
Taking home the tiara was twenty four year old Alexandra Kocsis – who was showcasing her breast enhancement surgery which were commended for their natural appearance. For anyone a competition win like this is a great boost to your public profile and can give you a platform on which to continue to build your career as a model or hostess or public speaking engagements.
Who said beauty was only skin deep? These beauty queens have had a lot of work done and they are proud of their surgery enhanced appearance. Surprisingly the Miss Plastic Hungary beauty pageant has only been held once.
