British beauty queen told to pack on the pounds

Miss England shocked when told Miss World pageant prefers ‘curvy’ to thin

So it came as somewhat of a surprise to Horsley when she was advised that if she wanted a real shot of winning the Miss World title, she had better pack on a few pounds.
“I was a little bit shocked,” the 20-year-old size 4 told TODAY co-host Meredith Vieira during an interview Friday. “Personally I don’t think I’m too fat. I don’t think I’m too thin. I’m happy with the way I am.”

At 5-foot-8, Horsley weighs 9 stone in England, 126 pounds in the United States, and 57 kilos everywhere else.
“I’ve just got more an athletic, boyish-type figure rather than the hourglass-type figure some women have,” Horsley remarked.
