Helen Prest celebrates
One look at former beauty queen, Helen Prest-Ajayi, would bring to mind the saying that form is temporary, while class is permanent.
Although the former Miss Nigeria’s reign ended many years ago, she continues to dazzle with her aura of undiminished elegance and class.
Social watchers were given a glimpse of her enduring comeliness on Sunday, September 18 at the Sky Lounge of Eko Hotels and Suites in Victoria Island, Lagos, where the adorable mother of three celebrated her 56th birthday at a gathering of friends and family members organised by her daughter, Tomisin.
The colourful soiree was an occasion of photo snaps and reunions, as she was congratulated, commended and admired by all and sundry.
The former Mrs. Prest-Davies shot to fame as the winner of Miss Nigeria 1979 beauty pageant at a time when celebrities were the exception, rather than the rule.
While her beauty catapulted her into social stardom, her brains did not fail her either, as she obtained her Masters degree in Law at King’s College, London.
The wife of respected media practitioner, Tosin Ajayi, has also dabbled into writing and activism and is the chief executive of Media Business Company.
Together with her daughter, Tiffany-Annabelle, she recently floated U-Wantit.Com, an auction site for luxury items.
