The State Minister for Tourism, Godfrey Kiwanda Suubi has launched ‘Miss Curvy’, a beauty pageant aimed at celebrating Ugandan ladies with natural endowments.
Organizers, a partnership between the Tulambule Wild initiative and Mestil Hotel, say the event will enhance the visibility and appreciation of curvaceous ladies as they walk the run way.
Minister Kiwanda launched the beauty pageant at Mestil Hotel in Kampala on Tuesday. The contest will take place every year in celebration of the big, bold and beautiful plus size Ugandan ladies.
“It will be an exceptional event that will see young ladies showcase their beautifu curves and intellect,” read part of a statement issued by organizers.
They say the idea behind the concept is to banish the ‘beauty is seize zero’ perception and attract healthy ladies who are proud of the way they look and also to celebrate natural curves.
Organizers add that the ‘Miss Curvy’ contest will promote a healthy attitude tobody image and celebrate true African beauty.
