Ms. Randolph and the 20 contestants for the crown are ready to shine for this year's stellar pageant, scheduled for Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 6:00 p.m., in the Grand Ballroom of the Robert Treat Hotel, 50 Park Place, Newark, NJ 07102.
The lovely ladies, who hail from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina and Toronto, Canada, ranging from size 14 to 22, will compete for Ms. Full-Figured USA, Ms. Full-Figured USA Plus (size 18-22) and for Ms. Exquisite Full-Figured USA (ladies age 40+).
The pageant's prize winnings total $5000 in cash, as well as a myriad of prizes, and spectacular crowns. Commentated by noted fashion commentator, Kyle Abercrombie, this year's pageant will honor legendary fashion industry icon Gwendolyn DeVoe, plus size social organization BABS, and Mr. Abercrombie, for their outstanding achievements in the full-figured and fashion genres. Additionally, the contestants will compete in Daywear and Evening Gowns and will also perform a special dance routine. The evening will also feature "Voluptuous,"
This long-running, significant pageant gives these gorgeous women an opportunity to demonstrate that "size has no barrier on beauty." Indeed, the average American woman is not model-thin, as shown in the magazines -- huge numbers of them are considered "plus sized" by a short-sighted fashion industry.
This glittering, colorful beauty pageant is a must-see!
