The 61st Miss Universe pageant will be held on the 19th of December 2012 in PH Live at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Paradise, Nevada, USA.
Melinda Bam (Miss SA 2011) will be representing South Africa at this prestigious event. Unfortunately she won’t be in SA for the crowning of Miss SA 2012 because she will be leaving the country on November 19, 30 days before she struts her stuff on the catwalk in front of the whole world.
She has been preparing for this event all year, with a wardrobe of over 90 outfits for 30 days, including her national costume and two evening gowns for the final. She is determined to win and keep the crown in Africa.
She will be dressed by designers like Peter Bondisio [The guy who made that yellow dress she was wearing at the SAMA’s], David Tlale, Gideon, Dax Martin, Gert Johan-Coetzee and many more.
My heart goes out to Melinda, I wish her all the best from the bottom of my heart xxx. We know SA is well represented!!!
DSTV nor has the SABC announced whether they will be broadcasting the pageant.
