Reigning Miss South Africa Marilyn Ramos revealed two of her pageant costumes on WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28 as she prepares to compete in the Miss World competition on September 28.

Ramos, the 22-year-old Klerksdorp-born beauty, will be representing South Africa against 132 other countries in the competition to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia.

At the pageant, she will wear an evening dress designed for her by Michael Bezuidenhout while Biji Couture is making the official Miss World Designer Competition Gown.

Bezuidenhout says “My inspiration for this year’s official Miss World evening gown was drawn from the Miss World crown. And so the colours I used are aquamarine and sky-blue. I used soft fabrics,bedazzled with Swarovski crystals, to create an impression of a fantasy princess.”

Biji is responsible for the Miss World Designer Competition Gown: “The dress showcases something that is truly unique and is our take on an African sunset with its array of spectacular colour.”

Ramos’s official gift, which she is taking to Miss World from South Africa, is a magnificent hand-made rhino – part of her committed and on-going campaign to raise awareness for this endangered species.

Marilyn Ramos is looking forward to the pageant: “I have learned valuable lessons thanks to the wonderful opportunities being Miss South Africa 2012/13 has afforded me. I have been shown such kindness and generosity of spirit by the many South Africans I have met during my reign. I will do my best and showcase our beautiful country and the values of the Rainbow Nation.”
