For fans of pleasingly plump, the annual "Fat and Beautiful" pageant has taken place in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba. Twenty young women with fuller figures cat-walked on stage.
Beauty queens - they come in all shapes and sizes. Twenty full figured young women took to the stage in the annual event.
The contestants were proud to be "big and beautiful". They were not afraid to pile on extra pounds by eating pastries just before the show.
Eliyah 35-Year-Old Contestant, said, "It's been running for 15 years now, and they take women from all over Israel that are plus-sized and beautiful and proud to be big and beautiful. It's 20 girls, and we are competing for inner beauty, outer beauty, anything, everything."
