A CHESTER receptionist is flying the flag for hourglass beauties after finding herself in the Northwest regional finals of the UK’s leading model search.
Radia Williams 24 from the Club and Spa at Hoole Hall Chester has seen off competition from 5,000 other hopefuls and is down to the final 43 in the North West section of the UberGirl 2011 female model search.
The UberGirl competition is the UK and Ireland’s largest and most extensive model contest inviting girls from all over the country to battle it out in both regional and national heats.
The winning model will not only be crowned UberGirl 2011 but will also gain a year’s modelling contract worth £10,000, a part in a reality TV show, their own website and professional portfolio.
Radia, or Rara as she is known to her friends, says: “It all came about last year when a post kept appearing on my facebook wall, it was an accident really. I clicked to close the screen and it kept popping back up, so I thought why not, I’ll try my luck.
“To be honest I completely forgot about the competition and unknown to me the public were voting over a period of months. I was selected out of 5,000 girls from my region.”
It is Radia’s ambition to fly the flag for ‘real women’ who are a realistic size and are non-conformant to the stereotypical beauty pageant contestant.
Radia continues: “I’m a real woman who is proud of her curves. I do keep fit and train at the Club and Spa at Hoole Hall, but never to loose my hour glass figure.
“I just think this idea of being size six skinny is so unreal. The new icons of today have nothing on past beauties such as Sophia Lauren and the utterly glamorous and curvy Marilyn Monroe.”
