Last week, reigning Miss South Africa Rolene Strauss revealed two of her pageant costumes to compete in the 64th Miss World competition in London on December 14.

At the pageant, she will wear two gowns – the opening ceremony costume and the finale gown – created by Bloemfontein-designer Casper Bosman.
“All the gowns I have created for Rolene were inspired by her timeless elegance and beauty. Looking at classic beauties from Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn to Princess Grace of Monaco, the idea was to keep with elegant lines and create luxurious yet understated looks. None of the dresses overshadow Rolene’s classic style which has become her trademark.” - Said Strauss
