Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival Queen 1991

Carnival Queen in 1991, Isabel Luis Hernández

In 1991, Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife was Isabel Luis Hernández, with a costume entitled, ‘Al ritmo de la noche’ (To the rhythm of the night), designed by Leo Martínez and sponsored by J&B Whisky.

The theme for carnival that year was 'Space': The tower of the Plaza de España was integrated into the scenery, transforming it into a giant telecommunications antenna dominated by metal, neon and laser lights.

It has to be said that 1991's carnival poster, designed by Mel Ramos, is the most saucy we've seen to date.

In 1991, the court was made up as follows:

  1. 1st Maid of Honour: Concha Hernández Padrón, with a costume entitled "A La Guaira en correíllo cargada de loros stop. Besos, Concha" (To La Guaira ...), representing Almacenes El Kilo and designed by Justo Gutiérrez.
  2. 2nd Maid of Honour: Míriam Rodríguez Afonso, costume "Viajar en mascarón", representing Almacenes Número 1 and designed by Miguel Ángel Castilla Abreu.
  3. 3rd Maid of Honour: Gema Medina Cambero, "Escarlata O'Hara" (Scarlet O'Hara), representing Galerías Preciados and designed by Leo Martínez.
  4. 4th Maid of Honour: Beatriz Curbelo González, with a costume entitled "Como una tormenta de Carnaval" (Like a carnival storm), representing Centro Comercial Maya and designed by José Julio Rodríguez.
