Last updated at 16:20, Wednesday, 05 December 2012
BUDDING models took to the catwalk in the glamorous final of the Miss Cumbria beauty pageant.
The event at Carlisle Racecourse, on Sunday, featured 45 competitors and was eventually won by 21-year-old Deborah Ingram, of Long Marton, near Appleby-in-Westmorland.
The final acts as a heat for the Miss England final in Torquay next June, which will in turn act as a heat for the Miss World competition, which features a top prize of $100,000, around £62,000.
Miss England was crowned last year as Miss Devon winner Charlotte Holmes.
Skye Mitchell, from Millom, who won Miss Junior South Lakes in October, performed her first official duty when she assisted in the crowning of the new Junior Miss Cumbria, Alexandra Baugh.
Skye, 14, said: “It was great to meet up with the judges and backroom staff again, I had a blast and wasn’t nervous at all.
“It was good to meet Alexandra because we’ll be in the Junior Miss England Final together.”
Nina Jensen, from Flookburgh, was one of the competitors at the weekend.
The 19-year-old, a sales assistant in The Sticky Toffee Pudding shop in Cartmel, said: “I am following in my auntie’s footsteps.
“She was a beauty queen and won lots of titles, she encouraged me to have a go at it. I had a wonderful time, and although I wasn’t placed, I met some really nice people and would certainly do it again.”
The final included themes of sports wear, day wear/party wear, evening wear and eco outfits.
Mark Jones, Miss England regional organiser, said: “It was out of this world. Simply amazing.”
Second place at the contest went to Shema Haque, 22, of Penrith, and third place went to Alice Simpson, 18, of Carlisle.
