Miss Universe South Africa, Natasha Joubert, has revealed some of the outfits she will be wearing when the 69th Miss Universe pageant takes place in Florida in the US on Sunday, May 16, when our own Zozibini Tunzi will crown her successor at the end of the event.

Twenty-three-year-old Joubert, a B. Comm graduate, believes she is fully prepared for Miss Universe: “My preparations started when I was crowned Miss Universe South Africa last year. I have been looking forward to this event from the moment of my crowning and will carry the Miss Universe South Africa title with pride. I know that I have big shoes to fill following in the footsteps of both Zozi and Demi-Leigh Nel- Peters.” 

Joubert’s national costume – which she showed off at her Miss Universe farewell as part of her #DestinyDesigned virtual fashion show – has been designed by designer to the stars Gert-Johan Coetzee, while Jolandie Fouche of Jolache Couture is responsible for a number of evening gowns for the pageant.
