Brittany Lyons who wore the sash Miss Logo Stitch was crowned miss Jamaica World 2008 last night at the Hilton Kingston Hotel in a grand coronation show. She beat out 15 other finalists for the coveted title and will represent Jamaica at the 2008 Miss World finals.
2nd place winner was Jade Grant, while 3rd place went to former Miss Jamaica Universe runner up Marshagay Reynolds. The top 5 include Raecine Williams who won the Miss Jamaica World Beauty with a Purpose prize and the sectional prize for Most Aware; and Chaka Laguerre.
Other sectional prizes include Most Congenial which went to Yanique Levy. She also was named Miss Jamaica World Sports. Miss Jamaica World Talent went to Marshagay Reynolds who delivered a horrible rendition of Celine Dion's To Love You More. Brittany Lyons was named Miss Jamaica World Beach Beauty, while 17 year old high school student Monique Daley was named Miss Jamaica World Model.
Lyons continues a tradition as far as beauty contests are concerned in her family. Her mother, Marie Clare Delapenha (daughter of one time sports caster Lindy Delapenha) placed 2nd in the Miss Jamaica World Beauty contest in 1980. Michelle Harris had won the competition that year.
Marie Clare would later gain fame in the Nadinola television commercial of the 1980's.
