A beauty queen who has won China’s controversial Breast Model Competition said she improved her catwalk skills through dozens of knockoff Victoria’s Secret fashion shows .

Liu Qianqian, 23, dreams of strutting down the real Victoria’s Secret runway one day after having been a star model in the copycat versions for underwear and real estate companies.

Ms Liu, from east China’s Anhui Province, also said she was surprised to win the beauty pageant because she only has B-cup breasts, but she explained ‘perhaps the judges liked my smile’.

The 23-year-old said she had learned how to present herself and walk confidently by attending the knockoff Victoria’s Secret shows in the past two years.

‘I don’t particularly mind the fact that many people said they were fake Victoria’s Secret shows,’ Ms Liu told MailOnline.

‘China has imported many products from the West. In addition, the so-called Victoria’s Secret fashion show is just a format. People shouldn’t think too much about it,’ she added.

The knockoff Victoria’s Secret fashion shows are hugely popular among Chinese underwear brands and realty developers because ‘perhaps people think they are visually stimulating and international’, said Ms Liu.

However, the model hopes that one day she could wear the real Victoria’s Secret wings.

‘Victoria’s Secret is the pinnacle stage for a professional model, and I would love to be on it. My idol is Liu Wen. She was gorgeous during the brand’s shows.’

Liu Wen was one of the four Chinese supermodels who dazzled on the stage in last year’s Victoria’s Secret catwalk in Paris – the other three were He Sui, Ming Xi and Ju Xiaowen.

The four beauties showcased their curves in the prestigious modelling gig alongside big names such as Bella Hadid, Lily Donaldson and Joan Smalls.

Ms Liu said she would love to watch this year’s Victoria’s Secret’s show, which is set to take place in Shanghai in autumn.

Talking about winning the Breast Model Competition, Ms Liu confessed she was truly surprised by the result.

Ms Liu explained: ‘I think I won because I was relaxed during the contest. And because the judges liked my smile.’

The annual beauty contest, organised by a plastic surgery company and a local newspaper group, was in its seventh year this year.

Since 2010, hundreds of models have showed off their ample assets on the stage with bold makeup and glitzy lingerie to compete for the title.

So far, responses to the event have been mixed. While some online readers criticised it for being ‘shallow’ and ‘offensive’, others found it ’empowering’.

Ms Liu argued that the competition was not superficial as it did not judge contestants solely based on the size of their breasts.

‘Among all the contestants, I probably have the smallest bra size. If the competition was really like what the others said, how come I’ve won?’

She said the finalists donned evening gowns and designer clothes during most part of the show, and when they showcased lingerie, they wrapped chiffon fabric around their torsos.

The candidates were also required to display their talent, such as singing and dancing, as well as answer questions.

The competition’s co-organiser, Huamei Plastic Surgery Group, told MailOnline that models were not judged by their breasts.

A spokesperson provided a list of criteria, which included ‘body proportions, manner, knowledge span and degree of confidence’.

The company said they hoped the pageant could spread the correct ethos of ‘beautiful breasts’ and raise the awareness of breast cancer among the public.

‘Our principle is to spread beauty, help women display their charms and assist charity,’ the company concluded.
