TICKET TO RIDE: Sep. 19, Kingston. The Kingston Industrial Garage got a dose of glamour last Tuesday as they hosted reigning Miss Jamaica Universe Davina Bennett (a vision in eye-popping red) and her runners-up Jenna Jackson and Sara Jade Kow, on the occasion of the official unveiling of the spanking-new Subaru XV model. Looking good, girls! (Photo: Sleek)
