The popular and reigning Schwarzkopf Professional Mrs South Africa 2016 Candice Abrahams has been crowned Mrs World 2016 at the 27th annual Mrs World beauty pageant in China.
The crowning of Mrs Abraham could be seen as a sigh of little relief to South Africans especially as the past months has been rough and tough for the citizens.
The glamorous event which took place in China saw South Africa taking up the lead position through the elegantly dressed and beautiful Mrs Abraham who was among the 36 most beautiful women representing their countries in the competition.
We could recall that in 2014, South African Mrs Sarah-Kate Scott was crowned the first runner-up in the Mrs World pageant that took place in Maryland in the United States.
A while before her first press conference on Sunday, Mrs World Abrahams, reached out to all her fans in a video posted on the official Mrs South Africa Facebook page where she expressed her sincere gratitude to her fans who have been very supportive of her. She said excitedly;
“My heart is just so happy. I’m so excited to represent South Africa. I’m looking forward to coming home, seeing you all and spreading the love.”
Mrs Abrahams went on to appreciate her fans saying she is humbled by their encouraging messages “It’s means so much to me! I am honored to walk with purpose as your MRS WORLD” she added.
Speaking on the great achievement of Mrs Abrahams, the Mrs SA Pageant manager Candice Fersen said she was an early favorite in the pageant‚ had the “audience gasping in awe when she took the stage in a sensual blue and fuchsia traditional costume designed by Anel Botha and left them just as astounded when she glided across the stage with the utmost grace in a mystical evening gown by Werner Dey”.
Shortly after crowning her, Mrs South Africa posted on its official Facebook page: “Candice and the Mrs South Africa Organisation would like to thank all South Africans for your incredible support. Tonight we stand tall, we stand united and we are PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN!”
We all celebrate her making her country proud as she continues to carry the rainbow flag flying. Abrahams will be arriving back to South African soil on Tuesday.
