16 year old, Chloe Marshall was selected as a finalist for the Miss England contest. Chloe is also a size 16.

Quote:
"I want to show girls out there that it is possible to be beautiful and not a standard sized zero," she said.


See a picture of Chloe, see her stats and read more about her and the competition.

What I like about this competition is that Chloe didn't have to enter a competition just for big girls to win. She competed with girls of different sizes and won. Now that's positive.

This poor girl has been butchered by the British media since it was announced she won. Here's the latest article from ABC News:

Quote:
Chloe Marshall's tiara tumbled this week as the British press chided the size-16 Miss England model as "fat, lazy and a poster girl for ill health."

Chloe Marshall defends herself against charges of obesity: "This kind of criticism could give young women complexes that force them into self hate and anorexia."

The curvaceous 17-year-old beautician trainee, who was the first plus-sized model in British history to make the July finals of the annual contest, was the butt of numerous assaults in a story in London's gossipy "Daily Mail.

I'm not sure - it sounds like it's just one specific writer who picked on Marshall and that everybody is up in arms about this one writer. So it seems like a publicity stunt for that writer to get attention more than anything else? Was it more than that one writer who is being so vocally against her?

Yes, you are correct, I've only seen one writer but I haven't see anyone disagree with her other than Chloe fans. It is being played over and over and over again by all the news medias.
