120 kg weighing woman wins beauty pageant in Argentina
A 24-year old woman, weighing a whopping 120 kg, was crowned the winner of a beauty pageant in Argentina.

Estefania Correa was crowned as the `Queen of Vendimia' in a beauty contest held on the sidelines of the annual wine-making festival at the western Mendoza Province of Argentina.

For deciding the final winner, it required Mendoza's 18 departments to shortlist their beautiful spokeswoman. Estefania was representing Colonia Segovo in the contest.

The 5-ft-3-inch tall Estefania was declared as the `anti-discrimination' queen. After her win, she delivered an inspiring speech which wasn't scripted. She admitted that since she had forgotten the speech written by her, she would now have to improvise.

She said, "I wanted to break discrimination, that the Vendimia was not a beauty contest, that it went further, that I am a woman who is going to represent all the citizens of the Mendoza region in the wine sector."

It must be said that with her win, Estefania has broken all stereotypes associated with beauty pageants. As per Carolina Cocuzza, the contest coordinator, the winner had to be a real woman who was capable of representing the people of the land and particularly of Mendoza.

Estefania, who's been a plus-size model for three years, always dreamed of becoming a beauty queen. She also said in her speech that although being curvacious made her uncomfortable, there was more to life than having just a beautiful face and body.
