Beauty queen and medical doctor Thato Mosehle will embark on a journey to Poland. She’s the first South African to participate in the Miss Supranational pageant.
South Africa (03 August 2021) – Doctor Thato Mosehle – who was crowned Miss Supranational South Africa at the Miss South Africa pageant last year – leaves tomorrow to compete in the international competition.
The medical doctor will be taking part in the 12th edition of the Miss Supranational pageant to be held in Nowy Sącz, Poland, with the finals on August 21; the first person under the official Miss South Africa Organisation umbrella to do so. Miss Supranational 2019 Anntonia Porsild, from Thailand, will crown her successor.
Mosehle says she is honoured and proud that she gets to start the Miss Supranational legacy under the Miss South Africa Organisation banner:
“The support from South Africans has been beautiful to see. It pushes me to do my best. I have developed great confidence in myself and my abilities. Keep me in your prayers, I hope to make you extremely proud!”
She says she has put in huge preparations ahead of the finale:
“I have had runway training as well as hair and makeup training sessions. I have been working closely with Miss South Africa creative director Werner Wessels in order to understand the essence of the pageant. I have developed and grown immensely. I have had the opportunity of receiving life coaching, vocal preparation and current affairs training which will forever stay with me, even beyond the final night.”
Her national costume has been designed by Sello Medupe, the owner of Scalo. An African warrior princess inspired it with elements of Mosehle’s Sotho culture and heritage. Day wear outfits come from Willet Designs Couture, Malondie, Sheriff Taylor, Ernst Schutz and Juan William Aria. Her evening gowns are particularly meaningful to her.
“Some are from Kobus Rautenbach (which is really special because he made my matric farewell gown many years ago) and Anel Botha, who is also based in my home town, is the one making my evening gown and preliminary night gown among other evening gowns. I love my wardrobe; all these incredible South African designers have found a way to make me feel incredibly special.”
So what is she looking forward to most:
“Obviously it is to represent South Africa to the best of my ability on the international stage. However, I’m also thrilled to explore Poland as I’ve never been there as well as to meet like-minded women from all across the world.”
