Text:How far will the 40 pageant 'girls' go to win that most glamourous of titles - The Queen of the Whole Universe - this Saturday in Wellington's St. James Theatre? And how high will the head-dresses get? Jonathan O'Brien, also known as Miss Judy Chicago, also known as Miss India (Miss Putaconda Monsoon!) for this weekend's show, says it's been three weeks of intensive rehearsals, as the capital's gals gear up to out-glam many of Auckland's annual Queen of the Whole Universe pageant performers who are travelling down for the one-off fundraising event. Me here. Matt Akersten - 24th June 2009
