The judging panel comprised resident judge Fashion Barber, who was accompanied by dancer Desha Ravers. Guest judges Tanaania Tracey and Tony Krash levelled the playing field.
Naturally, host of the series Miss Kitty, the Fluffy Diva, was quite stylish herself in hot pink thigh-high boots and skimpy apparel.
The crowd’s high energy was transferred to the stage as the contestants commanded their attention with eclectic outfits.
Aundre Higgins went all out in a peach suit adorned with flowers, complimented by a plastic birdcage, which housed a live pigeon.
Most Stylish Male Aundre Higgins, who sported a peach suit adorned with white flowers, went the extra mile with a plastic duffle (read: birdcage) that housed a live pigeon.
“My look tonight was really my imagination at work. I always try to think differently and outside the box. I also get a lot of inspiration from Fashion Barber.”
Higgins is confident in his chances for victory at the grand finale. “I had a feeling I would win tonight, so I already designed my outfit for the grand finale. Also, I won’t be leaving my pigeon because I know he’s a showstopper!”

Most Stylish Female Channa-Lee McKay aka Merry Maid copped the title for her yellow fringe jacket and complimentary polka dot leggings.
“I was going for the look and feel of a cowgirl meets exotic dancer.”
For McKay, securing the bag at the finale is a part of her master plan. “To take home the cash prize at the grand finale, I’m going to do my homework. And I definitely can bring it, I’m not phased at all,” she told Loop Lifestyle.
Higgins and McKay will have automatic spots in the upcoming Campari Pop Style grand finale where they will compete with other regional winners for a JM $250,000 cash prize.
The final showdown is slated for Saturday, November 30, at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre.
