1st Black Woman To Win Prestigious Supranational Pageant In The World

SUPRANATIONAL: Having power or influence that transcends national boundaries or governments.

Indeed, Miss Supranational has transcended borders and boundaries, placing itself on the scale of renowned supranational such as the European Union.

This is an annual international female beauty pageant, started in 2009, with most contests held in Poland, and a parallel male contest, Mister Supranational, began in 2016, also in Poland.

So why is it receiving so much recognition across the world?

The event comes live on television, and features incredible women from across the world, with a focus on true natural beauty and grace. The competition has been named among the top 3 most influential, important, and prestigious international pageants in the world.

And South Africa’s, Lalela Mswane, has become the first black woman ever to win this prestigious award and 2nd African woman to win Miss Supranational after Chanique Rabe. This also marks a back-to-back win for Africa.

The 25-year-old South African model was also previously crowned Miss South Africa 2021. Prior to becoming Miss South Africa, Mswane worked as a professional model signed to the South African modeling agency Alushi Models.

Controversially, Mswane received widespread criticism within South Africa for agreeing to compete in Miss Universe 2021, which was set to be held in Israel, due to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. On 14 November 2021, the government of South Africa withdrew its support for Mswane to compete. Against all odds, on 12 December 2021, Mswane competed at Miss Universe 2021 and placed as the second runner-up.
