Why is this 5' 10" beauty fat you ask? Because by insurance company's BMI standards the 176 pound curvy chic falls into the overweight range. This of course would tell anyone who looks up to the winner of Miss England, that obesity is acceptable. One of the main assumptions about overweight women is that they must be lazy. Chloe is far from lazy. The future beautician likes to exercise and her routine includes a healthy dose of running and horse back riding.
Chloe Marshall has also been bashed because of her fat positive crescendo of wanting to show young women that it is ok to be plus size and that it is possible to be plus size and beautiful.
If any one could be the banner girl for the UK on size acceptance for young women then Chloe may be their shining star. She has received a mixture of positive and negative press but lets face it any kind of press is helpful these days.
Chloe Marshall was the only plus size candidate in the Miss Surrey competition and the first size 16 Miss England entrant. Hopefully next year there will be more than the token plus size contestant.
The Miss England title is just one of many titles owned by the Miss World organization. This competition's focus is young women 17 - 24 years of age and living in England. Chloe beat out seven other talented contestants for Miss Surrey in March and goes on to compete for Miss England in July. I'll keep my fingers crossed until then. Who knows, maybe after that we'll be cheering her on for the Miss World title!
