BEAUTIES have taken to the catwalk all in the hope of being crowned the next Miss Staffordshire.
The 17 finalist competed at Uttoxeter Racecourse to receive the crown from last year’s winner Jessica Landells, from Uttoxeter.
The ladies were required to tell a crowd of around 120 people about themselves while modelling outfits for a day at the races, evening wear and a night out.
The winner was declared as 23-year-old Jade Williams by the judges, including current Miss England Kirsty Heslewood, racecourse executive director David MacDonald and out-going Miss Staffordshire Miss Landells.
Miss Williams will now automatically go through to the next stage, which will be the Miss England competition which will be held in Torquay.
Racecourse events manager Dan Whitehead told the Advertiser the event was well supported on the day.
He said: “It was a really great day. We had 17 girls in the final and we whittled it down again to the final eight.
“We chose Jade as the winner and I think she will be a really good competitor in the Miss England competition where she will now represent the county.
“We had 120 people come along to support the girls and they all really enjoyed watching the final.”
This year’s Miss Staffordshire was sponsored by Hair and Co in Hanley, who will provide the winner with a year of free hair dressing, Staffs Living and Dove Valley Marquees.
Miss Williams said: “Winning Miss Staffordshire is definitely among one of my biggest achievements.
“About four years ago I had a lot of dental surgery done because my teeth were really bad.
“People used to make comments about the fact I had to wear a brace and it really knocked my confidence.”
