Israel's 'Fat and Beautiful' pageant

Plus size beauties have graced the catwalk in Israel for the annual 'Fat and Beautiful' beauty pageant.

Taking place for the 15th year, women can be found in various sizes and shapes in what has turned into Israel's biggest fashion event.

The 21 contestants came from all over Israel, with weights fluctuating between the minimum required entry weight of 80kg, to 110kg of some of the larger women.

Participants took the stage with casual wear and evening gowns, with the all-important swimsuit contest conspicuously missing.

The night's winner was awarded with a diamond ring, a one-year modelling contract with Esterika Nagid's agency, cosmetic products, and a trip abroad.
