GUESTS who watched Mrs Vietnam being crowned Mrs Universe at Durban’s Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre on 2 September, were treated to a feast of fashion, design and colour as contestants lit up the stage with their incredible traditional ethnic wear.

Costumes ranged from awe-inspiring to awesome, dazzling to daring, expansive and exhilarating to bold and barely-there, and dazzling to daring.

The Mrs Universe pageant celebrates married women between the ages of 25 and 45 who are doing phenomenal work to uplift and enhance their local communities through CSI initiatives, business development and global trade opportunities. It was the first time the event was held on African soil.

Forty-three-year old Mrs Vietnam, Tram Hoang Luu, burst into tears when she received the coveted Mrs Universe crown. Mrs Gabon, Gwen Madiba Moubouyi was named first runner-up and Mrs Pakistan, Taiba Noorulian Sheheryar was second runner-up.
Mrs France, Anastasia Gorshkova and Mrs India, Shaveta Athwal, rounded off the top five. South Africa was represented by Durban wife and mom, Trisha Poona, who was placed in the top 25. - Supplied.
