The next category was the ‘Swim Swift’ and this was simply an eye catching one as they flaunted their body looks in the bikinis which left the men in the crowd speechless and so were the journalists near the stage, the last category was the ‘Evening Gown’ and this saw the girls appear in wonderful party dresses which would entice any man to take any of the girls with him for an evening party at Serena or Sheraton hotels.
