The 2018 edition of the Miss Fabulous Plus T&T Pageant was held at the Cascadia Hotel’s Banquet & Conference Centre, St Ann’s, on Saturday evening. From a field of ten delegates, Miss Arima Mekelia Miller was crowned winner.

The ten young women, rigorously trained by Lyndon Ross, showcased not only beauty but also their talents and knowledge of T&T’s culture, social and political spheres. The contestants spanned a wide pool of professions, inclusive of hair stylists, make up artists, fashion designers and modeling directors. They were judged by a panel of five highly-esteemed judges: Nicole Dyer-Griffith, Vashti Persaud, Sharon Imbert, Neuban Clarke and Richard Young.

Delegates, and the districts, they represented were Dannah Danclar (Santa Cruz); Josanne Paul (Belmont); Janine Peters (Morvant/Laventille); Tricia-Ann Cuffie (Couva); Jeannine Clarke-Jackson (Cascade); Nicole Reyes (Tacarigua); Joanne O’Garro (Chaguanas); Tamara D’Abreu (Cocorite); Mekelia Miller (Arima); and, Dalia Smith (Tunapuna).

The evening’s programme included segments and judging categories in Swim Wear, Evening Gown, and a Personality Interview.

Guest artiste vocalist Samuel Stewart wowed the audience with his beautiful voice. But, it when current Mr Impressive 2018 Ricardo Roberts serenaded the contestants that the all ladies present, on stage and in the audience, were at full attention, loudly cheering, gasping, and excited as he gave each and every contestant a red rose.

As proceedings progressed, and before the announcement of Queen Mekelia, past queens were acknowledged, a short vote of thanks given and former Miss Fabulous Plus T&T Cara Samlalsingh took her final walk.
