Miss South Africa LIVE: Watch the pageant finale [video]

American Swiss, the official fine jewellery partner, unveiled a magnificent crown named Buhle. World-renowned local jewellery designer, Johan Louw, collaborated on the design and magic was created.Buhle is inspired by ubuhle bethungo lenkosazane, which means “the beauty of a rainbow” and was chosen as a celebration of women, cultural diversity and our rainbow nation. This year we will crown a new Miss South Africa on Women’s day in what is set to be a historic pageant finale at Time Square Arena in Gauteng. Before we got to the crowning moment though, all the celebrity guests arrived and strutted their stuff on the Red Carpet. Miss South Africa’s finale is arguably the most glamorous night of the year and all the invited guests donned the finest fashions as they arrived. We have already met the 16 finalists vying for the prize of R1-million cash, a new car, the title of Miss South Africa and other prizes bringing the total value of the crown to over R3-million. The theme of the Miss South Africa pageant this year is Dreamwalkers and it will be interesting to see if the glitterati run with that idea on the red carpet. For the finalists, only one will see their dream come true. Sixteen will become ten, then ten five before the final three and eventual crowning of a new Miss South Africa. Fans of the pageant have already picked out their favourites for the crown but the race is far from over and it is probably too close to call. However a few of the ladies have emerged as fan’s frontrunners to take the title. Chuma Matsaluka is a 21-year-old from Nyanga, Cape Town who is in her third year of a BA Degree at UCT. Majoring in anthropology, industrial sociology and political studies. Chuma enjoys hiking, “going on coffee dates with myself”, reading and spending time with family and friends. Her guilty pleasure is watching the Crime and Investigation channel while tucking into ice cream. Among those to have grabbed the attention of the South African public are Chuma Matsaluka, Lisa Stoffella, Errin Brits, Sasha-Lee Olivier and Xia Narain. Lisa Stoffela is a 26-year-old pizza lover from Morningside in Johannesburg. This BCom graduate and owner of a small pizza takeaway business loves tucking into pizza and pasta. Lisa loves spending time with family and friends, working out at the gym and experimenting with flavours in the kitchen. Each of the ladies brings something unique to the pageant and it is fabulous to see such a diverse group in contention for the crown. Errin Brits is a 22-year-old LLB student from Randpark Ridge, Johannesburg. Her role models include former public protector Thuli Madonsela and Peggy-Sue Khumalo, who was crowned Miss SA in 1996 and is now a successful businesswoman.
