This is a pageant like no other. Only women size 14 and up need apply.
Plus-size women from throughout the state will reflect the message that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes during the California Plus America beauty pageant in Anaheim on April 24.
"We're beautiful no matter what size we are," said Cher Rue, California Plus America executive director. "Beauty is inside."
The pageant comes at a time when strides toward body acceptance and more diverse industry ideals of beauty have been reflected on fashion runways and on television.
