It was only a few weeks ago, when she also captured the coveted title of Miss Carival, another regional contest that was held as a main event for carnival in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
Miss. Queeley, who is also the reigning National Carnival Queen for St. Kitts & Nevis, a crown she won last December, (2010), was considered a favourite by the commentators in Antigua, describing her as a very strong delegate, filled with talent, intelligence and charm. Iantavian dominated the competition winning all of the judged segments. She becomes the third national of St. Kitts and Nevis to win the title; following in the footsteps of Ithlane Archibald in 1984 and Nicole Gumbs in 2001. In addition to winning she also picked up the prizes for Best Talent, Best Swim Wear, Best Interview and Modellling Skills in the Cocktail Attire, Best Evening Wear.

Similar to her experience in St. Vincent, the Antiguan audience fell in love with Iantavian, commending her for a wonderful overall performance that was consistent in quality throughout the appearances.
It was the 50th Anniversary of the Miss Jaycees Caribbeab Pageant but it was described by most commentators to have been one lacking the quality and high standard that was anticipated for the Golden Celebrations.
Heavy rains at the scheduled start at 8:00pm caused the pageant to start some 90 minutes late, and forcing various logistical changes that may have severely impacted the brilliance of the show. It was a very late ending for the pageant, coming to a climax at 3:30am, having started the night before, Friday, 29th July.
