People’s concept of beauty is changing rapidly in the modern world. Gone are the days when only young, slender and perfectly-featured women were revered. Now, the body positivity movement is celebrating beautiful women whose allure cannot be so easily put into boxes.

This change has inspired many women who would have otherwise considered themselves too old to compete in beauty pageants to take the plunge into this shimmering, other-the-top world. One of these women is grandmother-of-two from Scotland, Laurie Meisak.

Check out Laurie strutting her stuff down the runway:

Alongside her 24-year-old daughter, Amy, she competed in the Miss Galaxy UK final last week.

Thanks to the encouragement of her family and friends, Laurie decided to enter the competition having watched her daughter compete in them for a number of years.

While competing in the pageant, the mother-of-four even found the courage to strip down to her swimwear.
