Miss Black Britain UK 2006

The very first Miss Black Britain UK launches itself into the beauty industry. We gauge public opinion on this hot topic.

Published on July 3rd 2006.


Miss Black Britain UK 2006

The heat is on as 20 babilicious beauties across the UK sharpen nails, pucker up and shake booties in their quest to win the title of Miss Black Britain 2006.

The Miss Black Britain UK Final will strut its stuff on the catwalk on Saturday 15 July at the very ungirly venue of Leeds United Football Club.

The girls have been plucked from obscurity to be buffed and beautified in preparation for this event. And the lucky winner receives not only the title of being the first ever winner of this new contest but also a modelling contract with SugarBabe Modelling Agency, a trip to New York, £1000 cash prize and will go on to compete in the British National contest Miss England 2007. Now no Naomi Campbell style diva strops please ladies.

Footballers’ Wives actress Phia Oruche and Choice FM presenter Richard Blackwood will be housing the event with performances from RnB group Run*dmental 03. Confirmed judges include Living TV’s Britain’s Next Top Model contestant Tashi Brown, Myra Gonzalez from Premiere Models and Debbie Clarke from SugarBabes Modelling Agency. ITV North will also be broadcasting Miss Black Britain as a ten week series which will be shown from August 2006.

But the contest, new for 2006, isn’t just about most girlhood dreams of having their face beaming back from magazine racks in newsagents all over the country. The contest has been launched to allow young black women (who the organisers believe are under-represented) to showcase their individual talents and encourage more black women to participate in the annual Miss England Beauty Pageant.

But questions have also been raised as to whether events like these only serve to create more of a divide in cultures and unfair exclusion towards non-ethnic minorities. We would like to hear your comments towards events like Miss Black Britain UK which are solely for minority groups. To comment please fill in the form below.
