Today Miss South Africa Tamaryn Green proudly stepped onto a platform at a media briefing in Sandton to reveal the national costume she'll be wearing at the upcoming Miss Universe pageant.

Designed by The Costume Dept., the same company who created Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters’ outfit, the pale blue and grey feathered costume was inspired by the Blue Crane - South Africa's national bird.
