Beautiful & voluptuous Chloe Marshall has set her sights on challenging the fashion industry stereotype by becoming the first ever size 16 Miss England entrant.
The 17 year-old from Guildford in Surrey is already topping her regional heat and has her sights set on the final in July. You can vote for her in the Surrey regional heat by visiting http://www.missengland.info/.
Chloe is 5ft 10 with a curvy 38/32/42 figure. Miss England organisers are behind Chloe, saying she has what it takes to shatter the stereotype that beauty means being stick-thin.
Angie Beasley, Miss England director said: 'The sky's the limit for a beautiful, curvy girl like Chloe. She has already made history as the first plus-size entrant and I hope many more will follow and promote bigger bodies.
''Girls are under such crazy pressure to be thin these days.' says Chloe. 'I'm not a stick insect but I've got a strict exercise regime and I enjoy looking pretty. When I pick up a size 16 in Topshop I'm made to feel I'm at the fat end of the scale. But 16 is the average dress size for British women.'
