Miss South Africa 2016 Semi-Finalists: Meet the ladies from Gauteng (Part 1)

The twenty five young ladies in the running for the Miss South Africa 2016 title were presented to the South African public yesterday. Over the coming weeks, they will be whittled down to only 12 who will compete for the title at the Sun City Superbowl in March 2016. The winner of Miss South Africa 2016 will represent South Africa at Miss World and Miss Universe.

Based on the photos, Eye For Beauty Blog's first reaction would be that the ripple effect of Rolene's Strauss' victory at Miss World last year can finally be seen. It seems like we have a strong group of ladies this year and it might very well be because the pageant was thrust back into the limelight after Strauss bagged that coveted blue crown last December.

So, here are the Miss South Africa 2016 top 25 semi-finalists. Up next is the first group of semi-finalists from Gauteng:
