ON THE SCENE: Highlights from Salute to Rio-lympians, National Honours ceremony – and a Jamaican in Paris

MEN OF 'DISTINCTION': Oct. 17, St. Andrew. Following Monday’s National Honours & Awards ceremony at King’s House, PM Andrew Holness made a point of greeting all the honorees but, of course, he had special commendation for Rexton ‘Shabba Ranks’ Gordon, who flew in from his base in the United States to receive the Order of Distinction (Officer Class) from Sir Patrick Allen.

BRIGHT SMILES: Oct. 15, Kingston. Olympic relay gold medallist and multiple brand ambassador Javon ‘The Transporter’ Francis flashes his pearly whites as he accepts an award from PM Holness and sports minister Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange during Saturday’s Salute to Rio Ambassadors inside the National Indoor Sports Centre. The event brought together Team Jamaica’s athletes who did us proud at the Olympics and Paralympics in Brazil in August. (Photo: Sleek)

ALL OF US: Oct. 13, Kingston. Former culture minister Lisa Hanna (centre) and writer-director Michael Holgate join the cast and crew of Garvey: The Musical for a round of photos onstage at the Philip Sherlock Centre, UWI.

PUTTING ON A SHOW: Oct. 11, Kingston. Ahead of the sizzling concert which brought a fair-sized crowd to Hope Gardens on Monday to see and hear Kierra ‘Kiki’ Sheard and Kevin Downswell, the annual Kingston Jerk & Gospel Festival got a high-energy launch at the Audi showroom, where emcee Debbie Bissoon and event organizer/co-headliner Chozenn informed attendees of what to expect this year. (Photo: Infuzion.Inc)

MODEL BEHAVIOUR: Oct. 2, France. Reminding us of Charlize Theron’s sensational Dior campaign a few years back, Saint International bombshell Tami Williams strikes a pose at the Gold Obsession Party and L’Oreal Paris photocall, which formed part of the Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 collections. The leggy Jamaican star remains one of the most sought-after Black models on the planet who’s graced all the major runways and fashion glossies.(Photo:
