- Natasha Joubert recently left many South African hearts swollen with pride after she wore a beautiful dress for the 2021 Miss Universe pageant
- The beautiful and colourful yet elegant dress featured murals painted by South African children
- Many South Africans were blown away by the gesture and were soon singing her praises online
Natasha Joubert recently left so many people awwing after she showed up at the 2021 Miss Universe pageant wearing a dress that was designed to incorporate murals made by South African children.
Natasha, who was crowned as the second runner-up at Miss SA 2020, wore the white beaded and figure-hugging dress with a sophistication that only a queen could master. The dress - a Gert Johan Coetzee design - was finished with a cape that bore the murals of pre-school children who drew how Covid-19 had impacted their little lives.
"Natasha carries the children of South Africa with her as she walks on the international stage in her national costume, the fabric wings of her unique gown have been printed with drawings made by young children from South Africa.
"The artwork tells the story of pre-school children’s very personal experiences of lockdown and how the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted their young lives," @Official_MissSA explained.
Her many fans loved it and had this to say:
"Natasha Joubert is giving the girl a run for their money. She is SERVING."
"Natasha Joubert worked that stage."
"Natasha Joubert is doing us proud there by Miss Universe, we honestly will place and may just take this crown again."
Briefly News earlier reported that South Africa's official Miss SA page has taken to its Twitter page to announce the ladies who will be competing in the upcoming international pageants - the Miss World, Miss Universe and Miss Supranational 2021 competitions.
According to the tweet, Miss SA Shudufhadzo Musida will be competing for Miss World, Natasha Joubert the second runner-up for Miss SA pageant will be competing for the Miss Universe title and Thato Mosehle will be competing for Miss Supranational.
While many South Africans congratulated the trio, a few South Africans questioned the choice to have Natasha running for Miss Universe and not Shudufhadzo Musida, who would have been following in Zozibini Tunzi's footsteps if she was chosen.
