Miss Manchester 2006

With voting for Miss Manchester commencing today, we thought it was only right that we throw a contestant into the mix.

Miss Manchester 2006

With voting for Miss Manchester commencing at midnight on the 13th, we thought it was only right that Manchester Confidential, purveyor of everything Manchester, throw a contestant into the mix. Say a big hello to Kelly Ormesher – who most of you will already know as ‘The Wise one’ thanks to her revered column, ‘Ask Kelly’.

Kelly, our best asset in the beauty stakes, will be flying the flag of Manchester Confidential in the competition and in our (slightly biased) view is a clear favourite!

Beauty competitions have had their fair share of bad press in the past. Women’s Rights activists have spent decades campaigning against these competitions that supposedly uphold sexist views that deem that a woman’s worth can be judged by her beauty and her fondness of puppies and world peace, and the competitions did seem to go out of favour for a good few years while young women ran around pinching boys’ bums and zig-a-zigah-ing in low cut tops and platform heels.

Now, however, this traditional pillar of patriarchy seems to be creeping back into the nation’s consciousness, although with a slightly different attitude.

The tiaras and sashes are still there, but the entrants these days seem to be well educated (well, with some exceptions!) and professional young women with more than a few brain cells to rub together. It seems these days that an intelligent and successful woman doesn’t need to dress in dowdy clothes and big glasses to be taken seriously. It’s ok these days to be intelligent and beautiful. And competitions such as Miss Manchester only serve to enforce this. And basically, it’s a bit of a laugh.

****This is a subliminal message. Vote for Kelly, vote for Kelly…****

So click here to view the bevy of switched on beauties hoping to lift Manchester’s crown at the live final in June, and get voting for your favourite!!
