Models from Miss Black Britain had a photoshoot complete with street shots and cheesy bathing suits. According to the website Miss Black Britain is:
The UK’s first and only black integrated beauty contest, with Miss England affiliation. Miss Black Britain is a contest with a difference. It has substance, purpose and style. Miss Black Britain has dismissed the traditional format of beauty pageants, and has devised a contest that is contemporary, fresh and innovative. The event fuses urban culture, couture and sophistication. There is nothing distasteful or cliché about the Miss Black Britain contest, it is a high profile, professional and glamorous event. Miss Black Britain is undoubtedly the UK’s leading black beauty contest. Miss Black Britain was founded in November 2006. It was born out of the frustration with the lack of black British female role models and pioneers especially in the area of fashion and entertainment. The founders experience and background in the performing arts highlighted the lack of support for black women within the industry and inspired her to provide a platform of support.
