AN IPSWICH beauty has just won a competition that will see her go on to compete for the title of Miss World in June.

Lydia Dewar, 19, of Deben Valley Drive, Ipswich, has caught the eye of a succession of judges in recent beauty competitions, including coming second out of 6,000 girls to win the title of Miss News of the World.

Now Lydia has had another success in the Models UK Competition and has been crowned 'Miss Ipswich'.

This means she will be entered into a Bollywood themed national competition and compete with 90 other girls for the title of Miss World in June.

Miss Dewar said: “I think the beauty pageants and competitions are a really good thing to do because there's a lot of stuff going on about size zero models but you don't have to be stick thin to take part.

It's really good for boosting your confidence and it's not just about how you look, it's about your personality as well.”

Miss Dewar had to hand in two photographs of herself and conduct a telephone interview with a panel of judges before she was awarded the title of 'Miss Ipswich'.

She says she doesn't follow a strict diet and she eats what she wants but always in moderation and she enjoys going to the gym as much as possible.

Miss Dewar, a trained beautician, said she's just like any other girl and spends all her money on clothes but she has plans to organise an evening event such as a ball to raise money for the children's charity, The Rainbow Child Foundation.

She is currently looking for local businesses to support her by offering prizes for a draw and she is also looking for a venue for the event.
