Barbados Music Awards

As many of you know, the second Barbados Music Awards were held last Friday at the Wildey Gymnasium. Rihanna took home many of the top prizes, as expected. But the night belonged to many persons, who strutted their stuff on the gold carpet for the local and regional 'paparazzi'. (I cringed when I saw that word being used to describe our local photographers.) Anyway, here are some of the pix from the gold carpet, as promised. To see a more extensive gallery, you can log on to

Soca powerhouses Allison and Edwin made an interesting couple

'Entertainer' Contone didn't clean up too badly, though it's never a good idea to match the carpet...

98.1 Fm deejay Hurricane had one of the more risque dresses of the night

Soca artiste Keann looked cute

Singer Kim Derrick was loud and proud

Soca diva Kimberley Inniss was surprisingly (but refreshingly) tame in her choice of least from the front

Peta Alleyne was bold and beautiful

I don't know who Tejay is but this was not the wisest choice for the gold carpet

Maybe she's part of the entertainment....

I'm not quite sure what look she was going for...

This lady took her matching seriously

Jazz singer, the always elegant Rosemary Phillips

More tomorrow!
