Courtney Thorpe and Hayley Wilson threw the ultimate backyard party last weekend.
Beauty with a purpose was the theme of the Runway to Miss World charity fashion show on Friday the 11th of July held at Capulet Bar in Fortitude Valley.
The Miss World Australia National Finalists donated all funds raised on the night to Variety Australia, a national not-for-profit organisation which empowers sick or disadvantaged Australian children to live, laugh and learn.
Leaning on the white picket fences, the crowd relaxed and sipped champagne and cocktails under the stars throughout the crisp winter night. Illuminated by fairy lights, the beautiful models strutted down the turf runway in beautiful dresses from Seduce, Aje, Sacha Drake, Bec & Bridge and Nicola Finetti provided by Rent my Rack. To wrap up the show Courtney and Hayley also paraded down the runway showing off their pageant poses.

The event was a huge success and over $1500 was raised from the evening. Be careful not to take these best friends and powerful duo at face value. They are using their beauty, brains and charm to make a positive difference and help others. Any last minute donations are welcome before they compete in The Miss World Australia national finals at the Oaks Hotel Resorts Cypress Lakes in the Hunter Valley this weekend.
