This is the moment sexy Russian inmates strut down a catwalk in dresses they have made themselves as they take part in a prison beauty pageant to win a free makeover.
The contest was held at Penal Colony No. 6 in the Sverdlovsk Oblast region and it reportedly included a fashion show, a catwalk presentation, and personal descriptions of each contestant.

Alexander Levchenko, spokesperson for the Federal Penitentiary Service in Sverdlovsk, said the activity was useful for the women’s rehabilitation, commenting: “Everyone needs to be creatively occupied.”
According to reports, many of the prisoners carry out work for the clothing industry, producing sportswear, formal attire and overalls for oil rig workers.
The inmates used their sewing skills to produce many of the gowns used in their pageant.
According to reports, winners and runners-up received vouchers for a free beauty makeover as well as confectionery prizes of different sorts.
In the footage, several inmates are seen modelling fetching pink, red and blue outfits on a catwalk as music blares and the excited audience cheers.
One mean-looking convict in a burgundy dress blows the crowd a threatening kiss before glumly stomping from one side of the stage to the other.
At the end of the clip after the contestants file out in a long line, a sash and a crown are placed on a stunned curvy prisoner in a bright blue dress.
