Panache Jamaica Magazine was on hand for all the glitz and glamour at the Miss Jamaica Universe 2012 Coronation Night held on May 12, 2012 at the National Indoor Centre in Kingston, Jamaica.
Under the patronage of reigning Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes, who brilliantly stole the spotlight as "The Lady in Red" and in the company of other specially invited guests including Yendi Phillips, Minister of State in the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, Damion Crawford and Leader of the Opposition Hon. Andrew Holness. The evening which was better organized in comparison to last year's staging culminated with the crowning of Miss Jamaica 2012- Chantal Zaky.
Full details will follow on the event but let's get back to the Sand & Street Style which highlighted the event through photography by our very own Director of Photography, Roger Jones.
