Johannesburg – Rolene Strauss was crowned as Miss South Africa 2014 on Sunday night at the Sun City Superbowl.

The crowning comes after the 12 finalists took part in the Road to Miss SA reality show hosted by Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161).

The finale was a glamorous event with musical acts like Mi Casa, Bucie and Matthew Mole. Apart from the platinum crown made by Jack Friedman jewellers, the winner also received a prize package worth R1.3m.

Matlala Mokoko was crowned 2nd princess and Ziphozakhe Zokufa 1st princess.

The Miss SA beauty pageant has introduced many fiercely intelligent and beautiful ambassadors to South Africa in the last 50 years.

During Miss SA’s reign she will represent South Africa at both Miss World and Miss Universe pageants.

There she will be involved in promotional work and celebrity appearances, she will travel locally and abroad, she will meet dignitaries, celebrities, the privileged, the underprivileged, the sick and the needy.

That’s the expectation today, and it’s been growing steadily since Norma Vorster was crowned Miss SA in 1956.

This life changing experience opens doors to business, the arts, the media, retail and other commercial ventures. The world is their oyster and many former Miss South Africa’s have achieved phenomenal success.

Sun International is the license holder of both Miss South Africa and Miss SA Teen.
