Synopsis: This volume celebrates the culture of the beauty contest, from the well-known spectacles of Miss World & Mr. & Miss Universe to the flamboyance of Alternative Miss World; from sub-culture contests, such as Miss Nude UK, to the bizarre -- for example, the crowning of the frankfurter-clad Sausage Queen to promote National Hot Dog Week in the U.S. In America alone, 35,000 beauty pageants are held throughout the year, but the beauty contest is a truly international phenomenon. This book features contests from around the world, ranging from Miss Tiffany's Universe competition in Thailand, for transvestites & transsexuals, to the Santa Monica Prison in-house pageant in Peru; from Miss Arizona Teen USA to Mr. Gay UK. Color photos.
