Is it just me or do others believe that putting an age on beauty is really wrong? I was put forward for a miss britain competition for my supposed beauty but then told sorry no can do, has they had an age cap of 28. Not their fault i know but seems a bit wrong to me,not to mention i actually felt old for first time ever lol x
Hope to work with you soon, Emma Collins

I wonder if the 'miss' titling lead them to put a cap at 28? It might be a dated way to categorise young women who haven't married yet? Pretty sure the average age for ladies marrying is now into the 30's so they might need to revise that!

Perhaps there are different stages of beauty.

Brat, fresh faced, mature, lived-in, fading, old and wrinkly, completely past it, dead as a doornail, and finally manky corpse.

Unless you are born ugly to begin with, then most of us go through each stage. Nothing we can do about it, I'm afraid.




Dave (completely past it)

Do people still get married? How very quaint.

Do people still do beauty contests ? How 1950's
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

But the point im making is they obviously thought me worthy in the first place so why should the fact im 34 make a difference ??? go figure x

Hope to work with you soon, Emma Collins

I suppose its to give a level playing field and weed out people who stand no chance due to time.

Probably unfair on a few but then again youth does always win in the beauty stakes as a majority opinion.

This the multi billion £ beauty industry.

How does it give a level playing field ?

Is it anything to do with the cosmetics industry (I assume that's what you mean by beauty industry) - don't they make most of their money from 'old' people?

Some of them do have age limits, some dont.
If you really want to give one a go, find one that has a higher upper age limit and apply for that.
Enhanced in post production, but not working to a level of filmed with inserts :D
