Miss Montserrat has returned home on Wednesday after concluding a week of pageantry in Nevis and Antigua

Despite an early elimination at the Jaycees Caribbean Pre-Show in Antigua, Miss Montserrat, Claris Yearwood walked away with the trophy for best talent and prize for Miss Photogenic at the 2012 Miss Caribbean Culture pageant on Monday in Nevis.

The 19 year-old competed against nine contestants from throughout the region; however she did not place in the top four positions. Miss St. Kitts, Travesia Adams was crowned the 2012 Caribbean Culture Queen.

Claris took the stage in the Ambassadorial segment in a three piece ensemble which featured a yellow, green and blue head piece with feathers, a barely there brain green, and a long green and blue skirt flowing to reveal her legs. Local Artist/Costume designer Mr. Chadd Cumberbatch designed the piece which presented Montserrat Alliouagana.

Miss Yearwood captured the best talent with a reiteration of the dramatic presentation on mental illness another production of Mr. Cumberbatch, which she performed at the Jaycees Queen show in Antigua the preceding Wednesday.

In the swimsuit segment, Claris wore a one piece purple swim suit with a diamond centre piece held in place with straps across the abdomen, which was entitled Diamond Jubilee in honour of the island’s 50th festival celebration scheduled in December 2012. The Montserratian queen then graced the stage in the evening gown which earned her the crown in the Montserrat pageant in December 2011.

On Wednesday August 1, she competed in the Jaycee’s pre-show among 14 contestants where 10 finalists were selected. This is the first time Jaycees introduced the pre-show.

At the event, Miss Yearwood did presentations in all three segments: talent, swimsuit and eveningwear; however she did not make the top 10 group.

On return home Miss Montserrat took to Facebook to thank all the supporters for their support. “I wish to extend a hearty than you to everyone near and far who has supported me throughout my participation in the Jaycees Caribbean Queen Pageant & the Miss Caribbean Culture Pageant during the past week. The love and support given to me was beyond generous and welcoming as it made me feel more determined to leave a lasting impression. The journey was both a learning experience and a time for me to represent my Emerald Gem, and that I did to the best of my abilities,” she said.
