Their lips could give many beauty bloggers a run for their money, but it's these lips that unfortunately led to their disqualification.

The beauty contest is part of a month-long festival being held outside Riyadh. Aside from the beauty contest there are awards for camel racing, obedience training, camel hair art and the best photographs of camels.
