An aspiring model is one step closer to becoming the face of the nation after being shortlisted as a semi-finalist in the Miss England competition.
Charlotte Fine, 19, will join the line-up of hopefuls going forward to the semi-finals of the beauty pageant in June next year.
Miss Fine, who was selected after an interview and audition, said: “It’s been a really enjoyable experience so far and I’ll be preparing for the competition over the next few months by keeping fit.”
Semi-finalists are due to gather for photo-shoots and catwalk rounds featuring glitz, crowns and gowns in the grand surroundings of Kelham Hall in Nottinghamshire in the summer.
The part-time model, of Farrer Road, Crouch End, recently qualified as an executive PA and is a regular on the beauty pageant circuit.
She will also compete as a grand finalist in the New Level Pageant Timeless Treasure contest and as a finalist in Miss UK Dreams next year.
Highlights of her modelling career include striking a pose on the catwalk for Orsini Vintage clothing at the Rookies Fashion show in Mayfair as part of London Fashion Week.
The teenager is also a keen philanthropist. For two years, she has supported Holborn-based charity Cancer Is A Drag, which provides financial support to cancer sufferers living in hardship. In November, she starred in the charity’s parade at London Gay Pride.
Like any top pageant contestant, Miss Fine is blessed with talent as well as beauty. The semi-finalist holds qualifications in singing and dancing and has performed in productions of musicals Annie and Musical Memories with the Finchley and Friern Barnet Operatic Society, as well as playing the lead in Daisy Pulls It Off at theatre school and being a talented pianist and clarinet player.
