Miss Caribbean UK Crowned

The Star (St. Lucia) - - INTERNATIONAL -

The Grand Fi­nale of the Miss Caribbean UK beauty pageant was held on Satur­day 5th De­cem­ber at the Shaw The­atre on the Eus­ton Road, Lon­don.

The An­tigua & Bar­buda beauty, Amy Har­ris-Wil­lock, stole the show and won the pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion with her beauty, ath­leti­cism and elo­quence. She also went on to win the best-dressed with AgyeFrance, among oth­ers, with com­pli­ments from celebrity judges such as the beau­ti­ful Rachel Christie.

The pageant was launched last year to show­case and pro­mote the Caribbean coun­tries. With its logo ‘Pos­i­tively Pro­mot­ing the Caribbean’ the event aims to raise aware­ness of is­sues re­lat­ing to Caribbean peo­ple in the UK and the wider Di­as­pora by in­spir­ing, in­form­ing and unit­ing both those tak­ing part and the UK au­di­ence.

Or­gan­is­ers Clay­ton and Jac­qui Brown aim to use pageantry to unify, in­spire, ed­u­cate, en­ter­tain and cel­e­brate the his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural im­pact of the Caribbean. They state that, “MCUK is more than sim­ply a beauty com­pe­ti­tion; our win­ner will be an am­bas­sador for this cul­tur­ally rich and beau­ti­ful part of the world.”

Pa­trons shared an unmissable night of cul­ture and en­ter­tain­ment pro­duced and di­rected by award­win­ning stage di­rec­tor and chore­og­ra­pher, Reuben P Joseph. There were also dig­ni­taries and cel­e­brated faces from sport, me­dia, TV and film, mu­sic and pol­i­tics ea­ger to sup­port the pro­mo­tion and hit the red car­pet for the De­cem­ber pre-Christ­mas Grand Fi­nale soiree.
