Brooklyn, which celebrates "beauty in all shapes and sizes," would recognize Andria Gazelle's victory in a ceremony at the Borough Hall rotunda on Tuesday, Borough President Marty Markowitz said in a press release.

Gazelle, a registered nurse and model in her 30s who is 5-foot-9 and size 18, was born in Brooklyn and lives in the Carroll Gardens section. She won her title in December and was first runner-up the year before.

The Ms. Full-Figured USA competition rewards the most beautiful and poised plus-size women in the country, organizers said. Dozens of women compete in two size categories, 14 to 20 and 22 to 36, for prizes including cash, modeling assignments, cosmetics, tiaras and television appearances.

Gazelle said Monday she has been doing runway, print and catalog modeling and has been featured in instructional videos.

The 2005 pageant was the 16th annual and was held at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, N.J.

Organizer Theresa Randolph, of JT Pageant Productions, said she plans a Ms. Full-Figured New York show in September. The winner of that will compete in the Ms. Full-Figured USA 2006 pageant in December
