Natasha Joubert Shows Off Her Miss Universe Pageant Dress. Feel it, it’s here! Natasha Joubert has revealed the national dress she will be wearing at the 69th Miss Universe pageant. Done by celebrity fashion designer, Gert-Johan Coetzee and his team, the dress is to die for.
She is definitely going to stand out with rocking this gown which is embellished with drawings done by youngsters from Randburg and Diepsloot. The drawings include bold wings and children’s sketches depicting life in lockdown and how the pandemic has changed the world. Those sketches were then digitized and printed on white flowy fabric and then an angelic silhouette was created for our beauty queen to symbolize overcoming hardship.
“I will be carrying the children of South Africa with me when I walk onto the international stage in my national costume, as the fabric wings of my unique gown have been printed with drawings made by young children from Diepsloot and Randburg. The artwork tells the story of pre-school children’s very personal experiences of lockdown and how the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted their young lives, Joubert said.
We can’t wait for Natasha to show the world what she is made of as she represent the country at Miss Universe which will take place on 16 May at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. South Africa is the current title holder, after Zozibini Tunzi walked away with the crown in December 2019. She became the third South African to win the pageant after Margaret Gardiner in 1978 and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in 2017. Talk about some big shoes to fill. We do have hope though, that the super talented Natasha will make us proud.
Our reigning Miss South Africa, Shudufhadzo Musida will represent us at Miss World pageant. Her first princess Dr Thato Mosehle, will be the first South African to take part at the Miss Supranational. Best of luck to our ladies.
