Cape Town – Miss South Africa, Ziphozakhe Zokufa, is currently in Miami 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 DIC Crown in Florida.

On Wednesday night, as part of a preliminary competition, Miss SA made her mark as she flaunted her national costume designed by Gregg Maragelis of CTCFD (Cape Town College of Fashion Design).

We absolutely love her outfit!
