Dipolelo Hou, the first woman to represent South Africa in the Miss Plus World Pageant, continues to reach for the stars in pageantry.

She sparkles with another title after being crowned as the Miss Plus Size Universe Campaign Queen at the Miss Plus Size Universe event.

Hou was crowned along with Annabel Rollins (St Lucia) Miss Plus Size Universe Queen and Victoria Brovuna (Latvia) Miss Plus Size Universe Lifetime Queen on 20 April in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Hou was among 18 finalists that competed for the coveted 2019 Miss Plus Size Universe title.

Hou was the only contestant from Africa to make it into the top five. International contestants came from Jamaica, Brazil, Switzerland, Spain and India.

Hou was shortlisted for the seventh Ms Plus Size Universe beauty pageant after a string of successes in South Africa. She won the title of Ms Plus Size South Africa 2017 and was crowned as the Ms Plus World Ambassador at the Ms Plus Size World pageant 2018, held in Atlanta in America in July. Hou has since became the face of the Plus Size beauty pageant in Bloemfontein and the country.

She is the perfect example of a Ms Plus Size ambassador due to her qualities. Hou, who originates from Botshabele views the Ms Plus Size Universe pageant as an opportunity that enables her to portray the beauty and ability of plus-sized contestants and foster the importance of self-value.
