Mexico’s mixed-race beauty contest – BBC News

Hosted among twisting Aztec canals, the “Most Beautiful Flower in the Land” is a Mexican beauty pageant with a twist.

It challenges white, western concepts of beauty. Instead, it prizes Mexican “mestizo” looks and culture, stemming from the country’s mixed European and indigenous heritage.

Video journalists: Natasha Pizzey-Siegert and James Fredrick.
