Young model Katherine Arnfield was tonight named as Miss Bermuda.
After a three hour competition, where seven young beauties showcased their best and brightest traits at Fairmont Southampton, Ms Arnfield was handed the top spot.
She sparkled in a gold sequinned ball gown and stunning necklace and earrings and beamed from ear to ear after the announcement was made.
Miss Arnfield was also voted the People's Choice Award in a recent BerNews poll. Other winners of the night included Denae Simmons, who took home the prize for Miss Photogenic, Echaunti Swan, who won the title of Miss Hospitality and Miss Congeniality.
17 year old Katherine Arnfield is a Saltus honor student who enjoys swimming, horseback riding and modeling. She has already had the opportunity to participate in many photo shoots and fashion shows including London Fashion Week. When asked what she would like to achieve if she won the Miss Bermuda Pageant, Katherine said, "my main goal would be to represent Bermuda to the best of my ability at the Miss World Competition. I would like to show the world that although Bermuda is small, we are a force to be reckoned with! I would make sure everyone knew where Bermuda is by the end of the pageant and they would be curious to learn more about us, and visit!"
