Alternative Miss World

Alternative Miss World 另類世界小姐


This is Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London, but what would the Bard make of this?

Both genders were competing for the title of Alternative Miss World. And they pushed the boat out with their costumes. How about a peacock for evening wear? Would an octopus do for swimwear?

This unusual contest was created about 40 years ago. Maybe the only real thing this event has in common with a beauty pageant is the emotional coronation.
