Last night's Lady Boy 2009 beautry pageant at fine dining Thai restaurant, Mango Tree, offered up camp glamour, lots of laughs and plenty of spectacle for the full house in attendance. Competition among the eight contestants was fierce (and for the most part quite convincing). Slebs such as Gabrielle, Beverley Knight, Dame Kelly Holmes, some Big Brother exiles and a few other oh-that's-what's-his-face types presided as judges over the evening, while plenty of Thai-inspired canapes, lip syncing drag queens and even a magician added to the festive ambience.

And the winner of Miss Mango Tree 2009? Miss Garcia (representing Venezuela), who also took home the Miss Popularity award as voted by the audience. Receiving the title of Miss Mango Tree 2009, Miss Garcia won a tiara (of course), a magnum of Champagne, a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes, a return trip ticket to Thailand and more. Luck was a lady(boy) for this queen of the stage last night!
