    Arrow China pioneers Miss Plastic Surgery contest

    BBC News : China to hold fake beauty pageant

    Plastic surgeons around the world are being given the chance to show off their talents, in a new artificial beauty pageant in China.
    A contest will be held in October among women who have undergone cosmetic surgery, according to state media.

    It will be open to any woman who can prove her beauty is man-made.

    Plastic surgery is on the increase in China, China Daily newspaper said, with around 20 billion yuan ($2.4m) spent yearly on changing physical features.

    The idea for "Miss Plastic Surgery" was reportedly born after a woman was barred from a traditional beauty contest after spending $13,000 on 11 cosmetic operations.
    Not a bad idea. I wonder if they'll look better than natural beauties.

    The paper said China now had a million beauty salons, employing six million people.

    Their clients range from body-conscious teenage girls to women in their 30s seeking facial jobs and breast implants, it added.

    The rise of the salons is based on the assumption that beauty is a route to success, China Daily said, citing findings by US economists which indicated that good looks increased overall hourly income by 5%.
    Typically Asian attitude to beauty for women (like in "what is a woman if she is not beautiful ?").

    China recently lifted a 54-year ban on beauty pageants, which the authorities used to see as bourgeois and decadent.
    Unreasonable and old-fashioned communism finally coming to an end ?
