OUT & ABOUT: Asafa Powell + PM Portia Simpson-Miller + ZJ Liquid + Ayisha Richards + Fahrenheit + Busy Signal

BORN TO WIN: May 1, Kingston. Mission Catwalk star Rebecca Stirm (left) strikes a victory pose with her model Abenah Gonzalez after Stirm's latest creation (a stylish jacquard mini-dress inspired by the HIV/AIDS awareness ribbon) was declared the winner of Tuesday night's challenge on the hit fashion reality series. Stirm, who hails from Belize, has now copped three wins since the new season debuted in March.

MIX MASTERS: April 29, Kingston. Songwriter-producer Richie Dee Martin (left) and ace selector ZJ Liquid, fresh from a recent gig in Dubai, were among the party set in Harbour View last weekend for Bambino's Road Trip, a star-studded all-inclusive bash held at the Wickie Wackie Beach House. Fun times.

STILL GOT IT: April 29, St. Andrew. It's been far too long since fans heard new music from Fahrenheit, but we're glad the reggae-soul vet (snapped here on the weekend at Absolut W at the NHT Club Overtime) continues to make his presence felt on the social circuit.

FOUR PLAY: April 30, St. Lucia. With his new album, Reggae Music Again, earning stellar reviews from critics, Busy Signal (second left, with members of his entourage) flew to Castries for a performance at the 2012 St. Lucia Jazz Festival, which runs from April 30 through May 13. Also confirmed to grace the stage this year: Ziggy Marley, Kirk Franklin, Toni Braxton, Melanie Fiona and Diana Ross.

BRIGHT OUTLOOK: April 28, Pennsylvania. Hosted by mobile giants LIME, former Miss Jamaica World Ayisha Richards (left), Asafa Powell, and Diane Johnson, former Miss Jamaica USA, shared this lovely close-up at the 118th staging of the Penn Relays on the U-Penn campus last weekend.

VINTAGE SPLENDOUR: April 30, Kingston. At Jamaica House last Monday, PM Portia Simpson-Miller was presented with a special bottle (No. 1962) of the uniquely produced Hennessy VS in honour of Jamaica's Golden Jubilee. Maurice Richard Hennessy (centre), an eighth-generation descendant of the Hennessy dynasty and the Hennessy Cognac ambassador, made the presentation. This special limited-edition Hennessy cognac, individually numbered (up to 24,000), will be sold only in Jamaica. Sharing in the occasion are, from left, Paul Henriques, Managing Director of J. Wray and Nephew Ltd, and Geoffrey Bouilly, Marketing Manager, LVMH, Moet-Hennessy Louis Vuitton, France.
