This Is How Beauty Queens Look on the Catwalk Versus in Real Life

December 26, 2016

Beauty contests have become an important part of our culture. Today, hundreds of beauty pageants — ranging from local beach bikini contests to international scholarship competitions — are held every year with thousands of girls taking part. The choice of the beauty queen almost always provokes a heated public debate. Some people agree with the final decision of the judges, and others doubt the winner’s beauty.

However, we at LikeAble are sure that every contestant is beautiful. We offer you the chance to compare the photos of pageant queens taken during the contests with photos from their real lives. The girls look gorgeous even without makeup, don’t they?
