Miss Guyana Universe, Ruquayyah Boyer, grabs the attention of pageant watchers – 14th Dec 2012
Miss Guyana Universe Ruquayyah Boyer certainly grabbed the attention of pageant watchers last evening at the Miss Universe Preliminary Competition, even if it was not the way she wanted to steal their attention in her Michelle Cole Design. Competing in the evening gown preliminary competition, a stunning Miss Guyana slipped and fell to the stage but bounced back up and kept her smile going.
There were a number of other competitors who slipped and had miss falls on the same glossy stage, but Miss Guyana seemed in good spirits after posting on her Facebook page that she could not help laughing when she looked back at the video but is thankful for all the support she has been receiving.
The Preliminary competitions determine who makes it into the Top 16 and finals of the show, which will be aired live on December 19th. Last evening too, Miss Guyana competed in the swimsuit preliminary competition, wearing official swimsuit and footwear of the pageant. This evening she is competing in the national costume competition. Her Costume was designed by a young medical doctor, Doctor, Kurt Stephenson, who is based in Linden. The costume represents Guyana in all of its glory highlighting the colours of the National Flag and showcasing the designer’s own creativity.
And for the First Time this year, the Miss Universe pageant will allow the public to decide on one of the contestants for the finals through internet votes. You can head to the Miss Universe website, www.missuniverse.com , under contestants, find Guyana and you are allowed to vote up to 10 times per day up until the 18th December.
