May 20 - Thailand crowns 22-year-old transvestite undergraduate 'Miss Tiffany's 2006'.

Sequinned gowns, diamond heels and megawatt smiles - - it looked the stuff of yet another beauty pageant little girls dream of winning.

But for the 30 smooth-skinned contestants strutting on stage at Pattaya's world famous Tiffany's cabaret on Friday evening (May 19), the night was a dream come true for more than the usual reasons.

Miss Tiffany's Universe pageant - - a spin off of the resort town's Tiffany's Show - - is one of the few catered just for transvestites. And dozens of hopefuls come from provinces all over Thailand to take part in the competition every year since it was started in 1998.

By any description, the contestants are gorgeous, but many still feel a need to prove themselves by taking part in the contest.

A majority are undergraduates or hold at least a bachelor's degree, and told Reuters that participating in the contest was a chance to make a statement that they could be as smart and beautiful as any other.

26-year-old Aphibenya Chantranon, who is pursuing an MBA at Mahidol University, said, "Actually I've been watching Miss Universe pageant since I was the age of four, so I love beauty pageants so much. I can't go into the normal beauty pageants, but, this is the day and this is the moment."

Winners from the contest will go on to represent Thailand in the international Miss Queen of the Universe pageant, which attracts transvestites from all over the world.

Past Miss Tiffany's Universe pageant winners have done particularly well in this, having won the international title four times since 1998. Many pageant winners also go on to become models and celebrities in Thailand.

Dr Seri Wongmonta, the contest's chief judge, said winners are selected on how convincingly female they look. And Thai transvestites fared well on the world stage thanks to their more petite Asian frames.

"Our structure, we're not that robust. We look fragile, and that can pass as, to be like women. Also they take care of their skin, their face, they keep themselves beautiful all the time," Dr Wongmonta told Reuters.

It may not be quite the usual beauty pageant, but when it was time for the winners to be announced, there were the familiar tense moments and hand holding for the final three on stage.

Eventually, it was 22 year old undergraduate Rat-ravee Jirapraphakul who walked off with the crown early Saturday morning.

Jirapraphakul burst into tears on hearing her name. She told reporters, "It's very important to me. I think my parents will be proud of me because they didn't accept me when I was a child. I think they will accept me now."
