A TIE: Leah Bourne in "Bust It Open" by Lil Wil and Tiffany Foxx in "Put it On Ya" by Plies (she was not in attendance)

NOTE: Other winners include Jus Bleezy for King of Swag and L.A. for Curves. This event could easily become a staple in the STL (any award that is votedon by you peers is always something to be shouted out! Remember Flipside's Platinum Hood wards a few years back? LOL) ), but it needs to get a few kinks out: The event started at midnight, three hours after the doors opened (NOT GOOD) which caused many to think it was just a party and/or leave soon after their favorites won or lost in their categories. A plus was mostly all of the promoters and models who were nominated attended and the crowd brought in a good 300 or so from what we're guessing (which is good for a first time event). But, hopefully, if they plan to do this next year, that they find what works and what does not work.
