She freakin’ did it! Congratulations to the new, pinup perfect,
Miss Viva Las Vegas 20 …
… Miss Monique Sweet!
Congratulations to Monique – I am so, so, so proud of her! What an incredible couple of weeks she’s had – first her long-awaited wedding to Sam (she is now Mrs Kimber-Bell) and now, winning the highly-coveted international title of Miss Viva Las Vegas 20. And let’s just talk about that frock for a second – so spectacular – it was her wedding gown. TDF. Made by Judy at Curvy Couture by Judy Dee.
Here is her spider-inspired “Meet n Greet” outfit by Devel Branded.
And her Car Show outfit …
Anyway .. well done Monique – you ROCK! And congratulations to Sam too – what a fantastic way to celebrate your honeymoon. (Which seems to be a bit of a tradition with Kiwi pinups – remember when Miss Victory Violet won Miss Viva Las Vegas 18 back in 2015?
The quirky Kiwi pinup …
(let’s vote for her for Vegas)
Check out this gorgeous babe. Her name is Miss Monique Sweet, and she is a very good friend of mine. She is also one of the funniest, sweetest, and yes – quirkiest – women I know!
With an amazing sense of personal style – that mixes vintage, modern and glamour on the daily – she is, as my daughter would say, “goals.”
You may remember her from such posts as Moonshine Dreamin‘ (wherein we detail her preparation and lead-up to the Miss Moonshine Pinup Competition – which, of course, she won!) and A girl, an earthquake and how she survived it (my most-read post ever, in which we look at how she survived her terrifying ordeal during the Christchurch earthquake).
Anyway … Miss Monique Sweet is getting married in April, and if all goes to plan, she will also be competing for the title of Miss Viva Las Vegas 20 at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend. She will be there with her new husband … now wouldn’t winning one of the most coveted pinup titles ever, be a FABULOUS way to start a pinup/rockabilly marriage?! Miss Monique Sweet has won her way through to the voting rounds, so in order to help her get through to the onstage section, we need to vote and we need to vote lots! Believe me, if we can get her to the stage, that girl will knock their little socks off!

The lovely Danielle from Devel Men & Women has just done a fabulous post on why Miss Monique Sweet will be getting her vote for Miss Viva Las Vegas 20, and they’re all bloody good reasons, so read about them here! And because Danielle has said so much of what there is to say, I am going to say it with photos and captions!
So here goes …
Number one: she is not afraid to make a dick of herself!
Number two: she is not too princessy to get on a bike and cycle frantically round the Avantidrome in her active wear.
Number three: she is bloody funny.
Numbers four and five – she is bloody pinup-perfect.
So that is why, my friends, we must vote to get our quirky little Kiwi pinup onto the big ol’ stage in Vegas so she can do us all proud!
