Beauty on and off the stage at MJW
Franchise holder of the Miss Jamaica World Beauty Pageant, Laura Butler, promised the competition would defy all stereotypes in its 38th staging, and she delivered on that promise.
Showcasing 20 of the country's most beautiful women at the Montego Bay Convention Centre last Saturday night, Butler in collaboration with producer Weston Haughton and a team of renowned judges presented 24-year-old Dr Sanneta Myrie as Jamaica's beauty ambassador for Miss World 2015.
Myrie will compete with 137 women in China this December. It was her fabulous personality, infectious smile, incredible talent, and intellect that wooed the judges in her direction.
Topping those assets, Myrie, who locks her hair, is a beauty to behold.
At the beginning of the onstage presentations, it was the people's favourites, such as Jovi Jaja, Krystal Tomlinson, Roshelle McKinley, Royanne DeSilva and Talia Soares who had cheering squads at the coronation show.
For the night, which has gone down in Jamaica's historical archives, the people who came to witness this defying of stereotypes were dressed to the nines.
We bring you the highlights of what they wore.
