BELLES OF THE BALL: Dec. 6, United States. Jamaica's own Chantal Zaky (centre) is characteristically radiant in stunning red in the company of fellow Miss Universe hopefuls (Cayman Islands, Uruguay, Spain and South Africa) at a recent welcome event for the 89 beauties in Las Vegas, the host city for this year's grand coronation set for Dec. 19. Chantal has been exuding confidence all week, dishing to Missosology, "I know I have what it takes to bring home the crowm." (Photo: Miss Universe)

GREAT READ: Dec. 6, Kingston. Following a courtesy call on PM Portia Simpson-Miller at Jamaica House on Thursday, Cuban Ambassador, Yuri Gala, was presented with a copy of Jamaica 50: Golden Moments, which captures the spectacular highlights from Jamaica’s 50 years of independence. Ambassador Gala, meantime, presented the PM with letters from Cuban President, Raúl Castro expressing his gratitude for the sympathies on the passage of Hurricane Sandy and the Government’s willingness to assist Cuba. The Prime Minister and the Ambassador also discussed collaboration in the area of sport and the further strengthening of the longstanding relations between both territories. (Photo: OPM)

MR. DECEMBER: Dec. 7, St. Andrew. Sporting sleek shades and showing off his buff bod, Asafa Powell plays it sexy-cool on the set of a photoshoot for his 2013 calendar.
