She is the only contestant to cover her hair for the official headshot, which makes the public relations graduate stand out even more!
The 26-year-old also thanked her followers and fans for their support, saying: "We are taking South Africa to the universe, and I couldn't be more proud and excited."
According to reports, the 2019 Miss Universe pageant will take place on 8 December in the United States.
On the night of the pageant, Catriona Gray will hand over her title to her successor with a brand-new crown that will be unveiled at the competition.
