The iconic beachwear round of Miss England was held in

Southport and although this round is optional now and not a parade on stage

like it use to be and its now held as a beach fashion shoot, every single one

of the 50 finalists (apart from one who was on holiday) opted in for this

round by submitting a bikini photo to the organisers.

Just 14 of the Miss England finalists from across the country were selected

and could not wait to try the red and white bikinis specially designed for the

shoot by Mauritian Brand Infidelle and have their hair and make up styled like

professional models by the Art Deco Pierre Rene Professional team and hair

stylists from Luke Pluckrose at Saks.

Locals Barbara & Michael Albury spent an hour chatting to Miss England Natasha Hemmings and the glamorous ladies during their photoshoot in Southport

Barbara Albury, who is 101 years old, and her son Michael Albury a local artist were just passing

by enjoying the sunshine when they spotted the Miss England girls proudly

posing in their bikinis on the steps outside the Ramada Plaza hotel and 

Genting Casino Southport and both were thrilled to meet the glamorous ladies as they posed

for pictures with the girls spending over an hour chatting to everyone ! 


“Its funny as I wasn’t selected for the Beach Beauty round myself last year

but I was lucky enough to win" says the

aspiring opera singer & reigning Miss England Natasha Hemmings who joined the girls in their

bikinis as the sun shone down. “Even at Miss World I didn’t pose in

swimwear as its not essential to do so now.  I scored high in many of the other rounds in Miss England

including the talent round with my singing so although I love swimwear

modeling this is the first time Ive posed in swimwear since I won last August !!“.

Press release continued below the pictures of the 14 Beach Beauties .
