The dress is from the Thebe Magugu ALCHEMY A/W21collection, which had its debut at Paris Fashion Week in March.

From her Miss South Africa days up to her last day as Miss Universe, Tunzi has been supporting South African designers.

Here are the top five South African brands that she has gracefully donned.

At the Miss South Africa 2020 finale, where she was one of the judges, Tunzi sparkled in a stunning sheer dress with crystals by Warrick Gautier.

Biji – La Maison de Couture

When she took her last walk as Miss Universe, she did it in style and grace. Tunzi wore a black and white beaded dress by Biji – La Maison de Couture. Instead of a crown, she paired her dress with a doek. Biji is the same designer who made the sunrise ombré beaded gown Tunzi wore when she was crowned Miss Universe in December 2019.
