THE Mr and Miss Day at the Races 2016 beauty competition was once again a hit.

Held at the Umthunzi Hotel and Conference Centre in Umtentweni on Saturday, the event attracted 28 models from around the country, including Johannesburg and Richards Bay, and lots of spectators.

“It was certainly a lovely event with all the models dressed according to this year’s Durban July theme which is ‘Deck of Cards-Leader of the Pack’,” said organiser, Stacey Upfold of Ultimate Events.

Among the judges was South African award-winning designer Gideon, and Talisa Cornwall, a local model who jets off to Orlando Florida in a month to pursue her modelling and dancing career, and hairstylist Yolanda Visagie from Trinity Hair Salon in Umtentwen.

“The models had to design an outfit according to our theme, which proved outstanding when we saw the creations they came out with,” said Upfold.

1KZN TV was also at the event.

Check out DStv channel 261 on Monday at 9.15pm when the first set of interviews will be aired.

“It was certainly a proud moment getting this televised,” said Upfold.
