The 30-year old former beauty queen crowned Miss World 2009 is also Gibraltar’s third female to take on the role of mayor.
In her honour Miss World Chairwoman Julia Morley attended the ceremony and donated $10,000 on behalf of the ‘Beauty with a purpose’ campaign to Gibraltar for children in need.
Mrs Morley told the Chronicle she plans on visiting the Rock in the coming months to work further with the former Miss World and new Mayor.
Yesterday outgoing Mayor Adolfo Canepa passed on the mayoral medallion to Mrs Lopez at an Investiture Ceremony held at the City Hall, marking the start of her tenure.
John Gonçalves now takes over Mrs Lopez position as Deputy Mayor.
