Cape Town - Reigning Miss South Africa Zozibini Tunzi, shared a photo of herself on Instagram, wearing the same gown in which Bonang Matheba opened the 2019 Miss South Africa finale.

It's unclear when the photo was taken, but the beauty from Tsolo captioned the picture with a message to herself on her birthday.

Zozibini, who will represent the country at Miss Universe later this year, celebrated her 26th birthday on Wednesday. 

"The stars aligned and everything came together as it should to make me the woman I am today," she wrote.

When Bonang opened the grand finale in August, she paired the elegant one-shoulder design with a gold headpiece, Zozibini, however, kept it simple, wearing no accessories. 

We love the full-circle moment - when a beauty queen channels her inner Queen B.
