Prison pageant: Maximum security jail crowns Miss Criminal 2015

Inmates at one of Rio de Janeiro's most notorious prisons got glammed up for their annual Miss Criminal 2015 beauty contest, at the weekend. 
Once notorious for riots and rowdiness, the Talavera Bruce women’s prison was transformed into a stage for the glitzy criminals.
The beauty contest came complete with armed guards, watch towers and barbed wire fences.

And this year's annual pageant was won by Michelle Neri Range – who is serving a 39-year sentence.
The 27-year-old has been behind bars since 2010, when she was sentenced for robbery – with an additional six years added on for prostitution inside the prison.
