2014 Prestige Pageantry Awards

Constance Jones from Local 10 News Host Prestige Pageantry Awards

There are award shows for movies, tv shows and music! Why not have one for those who have made a significant impact to the world of pageantry?  It was a historic weekend with the first ever Prestige Pageantry Awards at the Trump International Hotel in Sunny Isles, Florida. I hosted the event along with Fashion Stylist and noted Fashion Commentator, Louis "FabuLouis" Calveiro
