Miss South Africa: National costumes for Miss World, Miss Universe
Sun International and the Miss South Africa Office unveiled South Africa's national costumes for the upcoming Miss World and Miss Universe Pageants earlier this week. Miss South Africa 2015, Liesl Laurie(left), will be dressed in an "African Goddess" themed national costume for the Miss World Pageant on December 19 in Sanya China. The dress is made of copper, gold and leather and represents South Africa's mineral resources. The dress is worth R100 000 and was made by Casper Bosman.
The first runner-up of Miss South Africa 2015, Refilwe Mthimunye was called to duty as Laurie could not attend both pageants due to the date clash. She will jet off to Las Vegas in early December where she will try to become the next Miss Universe on December 20. She also proudly presented her national costume designed and crafted by Anel Botha to the media.
