Beauty contest in Brazil prison!






Mayana Alves, 29, convicted of a series of armed robberies for a few days, holds a special title. She won the beauty contest held each year at the infamous Talavera Bruce prison,

In the one and only high security prison in Rio de Janeiro, the detainees take out the prison uniform for even a few hours and wear impressive dresses and toes.

This is happening once a year, and again on Wednesday, when ten detainees went to the prison cell in a fiesta designed to enhance the confidence of women who lived most of their lives on the sidelines.
