Miss Supranational, Valeria Vazquez, and Mister Supranational, Prathamesh Maulingkar, recently took to the ramp in Johannesburg, South Africa to showcase the work of up and coming designers during the Supranational Fashion Show Extravaganza at Gold Reef City. Our Supra stars dazzled the audience with their catwalk skills and had the South African audience on their feet by the end of the show.
The evening’s compere, Miss South Africa 2015, Liesl Laurie, interviewed Valeria and asked her about her reign. “It’s been way more than I expected. Never in a 100 years did I think I would be visiting so many places in a year and never in a million years did I think I would be visiting South Africa. It’s a dream come true to be here,” she responded.
Valeria was especially happy to be reunited with one of her best friends at last year’s competition, Belinde Schreuder from South Africa. “Bella told me so much about South Africa and I always said I might visit her one day. Now I am here within a few months and I get to experience it with her,” a beaming Valeria told us.
At the conclusion of the event, the countries first ever Mister Supranational South Africa was elected. 22 year old Rushil Jina was named as Mister Supranational South Africa 2019. The law student from Johannesburg, who stands 1.89m tall, will compete for the 2019 Mister Supranational title later this year.
