Miss South Africa 2014, Ziphozakhe Zokufa, is currently in Miami, United States, preparing for the Miss Universe pageant on Sunday.

All the 63rd annual Miss Universe pageant contestants are currently touring, filming, rehearsing and preparing to compete for the crown in Florida.

As part of a preliminary competition last night, Miss SA made her mark as she flaunted her national costume designed by Gregg Maragelis of Cape Town College of Fashion Design.

At the pageant, she will wear two gowns – the finale gown was created by another top South African designer, Gert-Johan Coetzee.

Miss Universe will not be aired in South Africa, however the results can be seen on Miss Universe’s Facebook page, as well as Zokufa’s Facebook page. Ziphozakhe Zokufa on stage in her evening gown during the Miss Universe preliminary show. Picture: Miss Universe Organisation/Reuters
