I recently found these photos in the Miller Archive, they were taken back in June at the Miss Essence of Ebony Pageant. They show some of the things you don’t notice when you’re just in the audience gaping at the models.
“Can all y’all at the back please sit down and shut up so we can get started?”
If you’re the boss of all the models, you need to be able to shout.
“Blimey! I’m stuck in a cake!”
Being a true professional, she just strikes a pose as the cameras whirl and people applaud.
Meanwhile, down in the audience….
“Ooooooooh, I wanna scratch her eyes out!”
“OMG! That girl just leapt onto the stage and tried to scratch the model’s eyes out!”
With thanks to Hosanna for the photos (-:
