Beauty Contests at the Prisons


Probably, glamour is the last thing you would expect in a prison. But inmates at a Siberian women’s correctional facility, Rio de Janeiro’s Talavera Bruce prison and numerous other prisons around the world have something to cheer about.

Participants are required to take part in the usual – swimsuit rounds and evening gown twinned with fur, black leather, including knee-high boots. Prisoners are also excused from work in the prison for up to a week to prepare for the contest, a welcome diversion from the monotony of life inside the jail.
