Reigning Miss South Africa Liesl Laurie will be competing in the 65th Miss World competition which takes place at the Crown of Beauty Theatre in Sanya, China PR on Saturday December 19. South Africa’s Rolene Strauss, reigning Miss World, will crown her successor at the end of the event.
Laurie has made it to top 25 and she will also feature in the choreographed dance section at Miss World.
The pageant will be aired tomorrow on SABC3 from 14:30 – 17:00.
Laurie, the 23-year-old Eldorado Park beauty, will be representing South Africa against 123 other countries in the competition which is watched worldwide by just short of one-billion people.
At the Miss World pageant, Laurie will be wearing gowns created by Bloemfontein-designer Casper Bosman, who also designed some costumes last year for her predecessor Rolene Strauss.
Liesl believes that she is fully prepared for the pageant: “My preparations started when I was crowned Miss South Africa and I know that I am ready for the international stage”
The 2016 Miss South Africa Pageant will be staged in March next year by licence holders Sun International, in collaboration with Cell C.
