The Calgary Sun reports:

A newly crowned Bolivian beauty queen was stripped of her title after judges discovered she had worn fake braids during a pageant celebrating Aymara Indian fashions.

Mariela Mollinedo was chosen from 14 contestants Friday night for the title of Cholita Pacena 2007, an annual event that features the elaborate style favoured by La Paz’s Aymara women, known as “cholitas.”

But after the contest ended, judges discovered Mollinedo’s long black braids — an essential part of the cholita look — were extensions.

An absolutely disgraceful act on the behalf of Mariela, totally deserved to be stripped of her title. I mean, how dare she wear hair extensions?! A truly abhorrent act.

“Oh, by the way, I was being sarcastic”

Meanwhile, in the home of the modern day beauty pagent

It was announced that Miss New Jersey was allowed to keep her title, despite photos arising that show her acting “not in a ladylike manner.” Oh dear!

See photo’s here! (you’ve likely seen worse)

Sweetheart Amy Polumbo said that she wanted “to thank God for getting me through this.”

Sigh…Life’s tough being beautiful.
