Beauty and the Beast

Caribbean high fashion and luxury lifestyle magazine Ocean Style proudly unveils its 51 Most Beautiful People in the current issue.

The selected individuals were chosen through a combination of physical attractiveness and beauty, personal character and substantive achievement, with the final cut reflecting the ethnic diversity, culture, values and ambition inherit in the phrase 'Caribbean Roots'.

Barbados is the proud home of the R&B Pop Sensation, Rihanna, who tops this inaugural list ahead of such notables as... cricket superstar Brian Lara ...and Machel Montano ...among the notables.

First time I hear someone calling Brian Lara and Machel beautiful. Really, even if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, dem beholders have to be rather shortsighted. Especially for Machel, given his blemished character.
