Miss Beautiful tells a story of South African aspiration. It documents the crowning of thirty-two beauty pageant winners who have nothing in common but the desire to become Somebody. The authors spent two years photographing and interviewing South Africans in Casual, Evening and Swimwear – Queens, Princesses and a range of pretty Misters from Soweto to Springbok, Margate Beach to Mankweng. Miss Beautiful reveals the quirky ‘inner beauty’ of South African identity. It is a testament to the transformational power of a title and a crown, and hands a microphone to communities clamouring to be heard.
