Now is this how we are going to train our kids?
Children as young as 20-month-old are now taking part in beauty pageant contesty, what is known as 'Glitz Sparkle 2012 competition'.
The beauty pageant contest -the first of its kind to be hosted in UK. Children dressed in glamurous outfits with a little bit of cosmetics applied flaunts their bodies along the catwalk. The children are then judged for their looks, capability, poise, perfection and confidence.
40 children were selected for the show which took place at The Pride of Lincoln Hotel on Sunday. Three rounds were there, first came a beauty round, then a talent round and finally a Hollywood Star round. Children looked lovely in glittery make-up and various hair pieces.
The youngest of the group Hollie Young, 20 months old wore flowers in her hair and no doubt she looked so cute and beautiful. Her proud mother Christine Greenhouse, 28, who is a a dance teacher from Sunderland, said: 'Holly did her first one when she was six months.
'A few people had told me to enter her in competitions because she is pretty and has always been confident.
'I wasn’t sure at first but I entered her in an online competition and she won it. I did a few more and she kept winning so we went to a live pageant.
The entrants pulled their best pose for the judges as overall supreme winner Alexia beamed with her trophy.
