THE SOCIAL NETWORK: Highlights from Miss World 2015, Grace Jones in London, SBAJ Banquet, and more

TALK TO ME: Nov. 28, Kingston. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Small Business Association of Jamaica (SBAJ), a celebratory banquet was held last Saturday, to close off a full week of activities, at the Jamaica Pegasus’ Talk of the Town Suite. PM Portia Simpson Miller (left), seen here with SBAJ president Hugh Johnson, was the guest of honour and keynote speaker. In her address, she pledged increased support from her administration to benefit the country’s micro and small business owners. (Photo: JIS)

BIG WIN: Nov. 28, Kingston. Jamaica College ballers and their supporters were in a jubilant mood at the National Stadium on Saturday night after the Old Hope Road-based school turned the tables on perennial rivals and Super Cup champions St. George’s College (1-0) to life the Manning Cup trophy once again. Now, the Miguel Coley-coached JC is gearing up for titanic Olivier Shield showdown against the DaCosta Cup champions, who will be decided this weekend. (Photo: Live Stush)

HELLO GORGEOUS: Nov. 25, China. Pre-coronation show activities are in full swing in Sanya, the host city for the December 19 Miss World pageant, where all eyes will be on Jamaican queen Sanneta Myrie, who we hear has been putting in the work, making quite an impression, and bonding with fellow contestants like (from second left) Miss Iceland, Miss Guyana and Miss Philippines(Photo:Sanneta Myrie/Twitter)

SHOP GIRLS: Nov. 22, Kingston.

AMAZING GRACE: Nov. 12, United Kingdom. Naturally, Grace Jones wants everybody to read her bestselling book, I’ll Never Write My Memoirs, so she’s out and about promoting it with a vengeance. Recently, the Jamaican pop-rock legend-turned-author hosted a signing at Waterstone in Piccadilly, London, where the shutterbugs were on hand to capture the jawdropping moments. (Photo:
