The 16 finalists for Miss South Africa 2019 were announced yesterday at the MultiChoice City in Randburg.
Stephanie Weil, the CEO of the event, said this year’s event will be bigger and better as it will change the perceived stigma associated with beauty pageants.
She added that the meaning behind the theme is symbolic “The creative direction of it is that pageants are always known as this kind of catwalking vibe and catwalking speaks to cattiness in girls; we do not stand for that, we stand for dreams, so we are not catwalking, we are dream walking, we are making dreams a reality. We do not want the old view of women walking on a platform, we put them on a platform to empower other women,” she said.
This year’s voting process for the top 10 has changed as one of the 16 girls can secure a spot in the top 10 based on viewer’s choice. Voting for the top 10 opened yesterday.
