Fashion was high in the air with women dressed up in gorgeous gowns and designer heels. However, it is not the Paris Fashion Week or the Milan Fashion Week that we are referring to.

Inside the high-security walls of the Women's Prison of Brasilia, a number of prison inmates were walking the ramp for the 2011 Miss Penitentiary fashion contest.

Over 100 female prisoners were part of the jail's third annual Miss Penitentiary awards. The winner of the contest, Raira Passion, looked stunning in a green evening dress. She was announced the winner after receiving the highest number of votes out of the 12 selected finalists.
