Watch These Plus-Size Beauty Queens Compete For The Crown

It’s FFFW aka Full Figured Fashion Week! To celebrate, check out the documentary, There She Is, which asks the questions: Does beauty have a limited definition? Can we make that definition more inclusive?

Watch as BFFs Allison and Jenny compete for the crown in the American Beauties Plus Pageant in this film directed by Veena Rao & Emily Sheskin.

In many ways, best friends Allison Kopach and Jenny Flores are typical pageant queens. They love makeup, fashion, and anything that sparkles. However, unlike Miss America, at a size 22 the only doors open to them are in the plus size pageant world. THERE SHE IS follows the two as they prepare for and compete in the 2011 American Beauties Plus Pageant and revisits them in 2012 to reflect on the outcome of the pageant and what has changed in their lives.
