Racing in high heels over does not sound like much fun, but when it’s for charity and the winner gets a $500 cash prize, then there are likely to be plenty of entrants.
Dms Broadcasting and BAF General Insurance organised the second annual Diva Dash on Market Street in Camana Bay on Thursday, 20 June.
So popular was the event that heats had to be held like a real track meet before the winner was decided in the grand final.
Men entering had to dress in drag and wearing heels too. One brave soul from the Rotary Club turned up in full slap and makeshift stilettos who had a passing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe – if seen through very drunken eyes.
He deservedly won the Monroe Fashion prize – mainly because there were no other entrants.
All proceeds benefited the NCVO to buy shoes for the children of the Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home.
Traveen Stewart, the Caymanian beauty who won the compelling Caribbean’s Next Top Model TV competition, was amongst the entrants. She was fast in her heat and won the best shoes category, supplied by designer Lindsay Connerton.
But this time the big prize eluded Stewart. The fastest high heel dasher was Tanjana Campbell who certainly showed rivals a clean pair of heels.
