|Ready to fight for the crown: Miss South Africa 2011, Melinda Bam, poses in the gown she will be |
wearing for Official Evening Gown Portrait at the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant in Las Vegas in December.
This is the first time in the known history of the pageant that the outgoing titleholder will not be present to crown the next queen. Bam said that she will be a part of the ceremony as a special live link between Las Vegas and Sun City will be set up at the time of the crowning.
At the send-off, Bam showcased some of the gowns she will be wearing at the Miss Universe Pageant. Her gown for the Official Evening Gown Portrait was designed and made by Peter Bondesio. The gorgeous green gown is a mermaid design with green and bronze diamante.

The green and the national costume are both amazing. Both are showstoppers. Just too about the quality of the photos. Sun International should have arranged a shoot and handed professional photos to the press at the send-off. In these situations. they should take the opportunity to build the brand again. Great gowns though. Can't wait to see the gowns they have ready for the preliminaries and finals.
