Finalists of the Miss & Mrs Curvy International
The 2020-21 edition of the Miss & Mrs Curvy Malaysia pageant has been rebranded as Miss & Mrs Curvy International. Miss & Mrs Curvy Malaysia, founded in 2018 by Mr Muraalie Kannan of MK Asia Production Entertainment, revealed the 24 finalists of the Miss & Mrs Curvy International 2020 at a press conference earlier this month. The pageant was created as a unique platform to empower women to overcome stereotypes and break barriers. Though the first Miss & Mrs Curvy Malaysia saw only a handful of contestants, it has grown rapidly over the years and has become one of the most progressive pageants for plus-sized women.

This time around, the pageant had 64 passionate contestants audition for the competition in September, right after the relaxation of the Movement Control Order (MCO). At the press conference, Mr Muraalie announced that the Miss Curvy Malaysia 2019 Marissa Kee, is appointed as the Assistant Pagent Director, and also hinted at a new international pageant, ‘Miss & Mrs Hourglass International’, which will take place next year. The grand finals of the Miss & Mrs Curvy International 2020-21 will take place on 9th January 2021.

“We are moving toward a culture of big-tent beauty, one in which everyone is welcome. Everyone is beautiful. Everyone’s idealized version can be seen in the pages of magazines or on the runways of Malaysia but we are hoping to change all that by being more inclusive,” said Mr. Muraalie, Miss & Mrs Curvy International pageant director and CEO of MK Asia Production Entertainment.
