Miss Universal Carnival Queen contenders to fight for crown

BEAUTY LINE UP: Contenders for Miss Universal Carnival Queen UK

A BRAND new beauty queen pageant is set to launch in London next month with a distinctly Caribbean twist.

Contenders hoping to be crowned in the inaugural Miss Universal Carnival Queen UK will go head-to-head on Saturday August 10 at the UK Centre for Carnival Arts in Luton.

The 17 candidates, representing Caribbean countries that celebrate carnival, got together earlier this month at Soho’s newest cocktail lounge bar, Bitter Sweet, to launch the new pageant.

The new event is a production of Carivog International, the organisers of Miss Trinidad and Tobago UK.

The contenders will be judged in three main categories – carnival costume, carnival inspired evening gown, and scavenge couture.

Within each category the artistic contribution by the contestant as model, the designer, constructionist and hair and make-up artists will be assessed.

Guest performances on the night will include the Carol Muraldo Dance Company, Pandemonium Drummers and the Caribbean Quadrille Dancers.

Tickets for this event is available from the UK Centre for Carnival Arts or by contacting 01582 437 111
