Strong support for Ruqayyah on social networks
She slipped and landed on the floor but Miss Guyana Universe Ruqayyah Boyer sprang up back with such agility one could believe that her slip and slide was choreographed into her walk across the Miss Universe stage in Las Vegas as she modelled her evening gown in the Preliminary Competition on Thursday night.
Ruqayyah struck a pose fit for a queen after she fell and had the audience behind her as they clapped enthusiastically while she smiled beautifully. The competition was web broadcasted and many persons supported Ruqayyah on Facebook and congratulated her for recovering so quickly and artfully after she stumbled. One poster even suggested that the stumble might have been a plus for the Guyana queen as she may receive points for the artful recovery.
