The Ms CurvyBody SA 2017/8 finals took place this past Saturday at a glitzy affair held at the fabulous Indaba Hotel in Fourways, Johannesburg. If you missed our report on the launch, click HERE
Nokuthula Tulie Tanda was officially crowned the Ms CurvyBody SA 2017/8 after a gruelling yet exciting process. The aim of Ms CurvyBody SA is to debunk the myth that beauty is about size. Beauty isn’t about a size zero or a size eight. It is not a number at all. A woman needs to know that she can attain success in anything – discovering her self-worth and radiating a positive self-image.
Nokuthula Tulie Tanda managed to convince the judges that she is everything the pageant represents. Among other prizes, this is what she won:
- A 5 day Vacation with partner to Mauritius, complimentary of La Palmeraie Boutique Hotel.
- A Trip to New York Broadway for the Lion King 20th Anniversary.
- One year Gym Membership sponsored by Zone Fitness.
- A weekend with partner at Indaba Hotel.
- Beauty Treatments by Dr Fatima Bhabha (Beauty & Curves Medical & Aesthetic Institute.
- R2000.00 clothing voucher sponsored by Majita Tailoring & Clothing Design Lab.
- Nails sponsored by Crystal Nail Lounge
She will represent her community as goodwill ambassador, becoming a role model of today while strengthening the country for tomorrow and discussing answers to timeless questions such as how to balance demands of looking the certain way and at the same time be successful in a world that is unbalanced.
