A star studded red carpet kicked off the Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa Charity Ball dinner, in aid of Women4Women, held at Emperors Palace, in the City of Ekurhuleni.
While this annual event has earned an honourable reputation for raising copious amounts of money for the Women4Women foundation each year, it is also always a glamorous affair and the perfect opportunity for guests to dust off their glass slippers and be treated to a delectable dinner while viewing a seamless stage production.
Hosted by the dapper Katlego Maboe, the guests were entertained with music by proudly South African all girl electric string quartet,The Muses,as well as an incredible fashion show powered by Contempo Retail and Zviwa African Luxury Designs.
It was an important occasion on the Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa calendar too, as the top 100 semi-finalists, announced four months ago, pinnacled their journey of workshops, networking, judging and rehearsing, when the announcement of the final Top 25 was made at the dinner.
Judges Vusi Zwane, Hlengiwe Twala, Leanne Dlamini, Mel Viljoen, Nicole Capper and principal judge Cindy Nell-Roberts admitted to this being the hardest round of judging thus far as all semi-finalists had inspired them and displayed beauty, grace and dedication.
The top 25 finalists will now embark on a journey of fund raising, networking and self-development until the final round of judging, to name the Tammy Taylor Mrs. South Africa 2019.
The crowning of new Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa will take place at Emperors palace on the 8th November.
The newly crowned Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa2020 will become an ambassador for the organisation and its sponsors and represent South Africa internationally at Mrs World.
The Mrs South Africa brand showcases the virtues of South Africa, the spirit of Ubuntu, and the real relatable women of the country.

Chatting to a South African actress, lifestyle model and surfer, Natasha King, who is also a Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa Top 25 Finalist from Cape Town, said being a Top 25 finalist nationwide is the most amazing feeling in the world! Especially since there’s only a handful of them from Cape Town that made it through to finals.
Natasha King also said that she entered the competition because she wants to be a role model to women of all ages.
“I entered the Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa to be a role model to women of all ages, and to the people of our great nation. Should I win the crown, I plan on using that title and platform to leave a long lasting, positive impact, by sharing my story of hope and healing, as someone who has battled with, and ultimately triumphed over anorexia and other addictions. Proving that no matter what you are struggling with, you are not alone, there is always help for those in need, recovery is possible, and that there is a better life out there. I am living proof of this.
It is my intention to continue being involved in programmes that support and offer help to those suffering. Hence, I am the patron for Imani Treatment centre. I want to be a voice for the voiceless and hopefully encourage others to not be too ashamed or scared to speak up about their struggles, and get the help or support they need. I want to help people understand why it’s essential to break the stigma around mental health issues, that you are not defined by your past or your present circumstances, and no one determines your worth, but you. I believe as women we must stand in our power today, teach our girls and women to reach as high as humanly possible, and pave the way for the future generations to come.” – she said.
