From the publisher:
"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. Stan Engelbrecht and Tamsen de Beer 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 Makweng. 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 that are clamouring to be heard."
