From the $400 designer swimsuits to the expert hair and make-up applications, it is easy to see how child pageants have become a billion dollar business. This season of Toddlers and Tiaras show pageant queen hopefuls (and their stressed-out moms) competing at the Southern Glitz Open State pageant. What are the judges looking for? "Beautiful face with a lot of personality. The whole package," one judge says.
Check out 4-year-old sadie and 3-year-old Isabella get dolled up for their beauty, talent and outfit competitions.
Watch as pageant queen hopefuls ( as young as 5-years-old) get sprayed tan before their pageant. "It really enhances the dress she has," one mom says. "Everyone looks better tan. You can tell who has been tanned and who has not."
On the positive side, at least these moms aren't making them go to a tanning bed?
