Nag-celebrate ng 60th birthday ang kauna-unahang Miss Universe from South Africa na si Margaret Gardiner sa pamamagitan ng pag-post sa Instagram ng photo na suot niya ay black bikini.
Nanalo si Gardiner bilang Miss Universe in 1978 at the age of 18. Pero 41 years later, na-maintain nito ang kanyang magandang katawan na hinahangaan ng bawat manalong Miss South Africa.
Isa sa humanga sa timeless beauty ni Gardiner ay ang ikalawang Miss Universe from South Africa na si Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters na nanalo noong 2017.
Sa isang interview ni Gardiner sa Channel 24, maingat daw niyang tinago ang kanyang Miss Universe sash at never daw niya ito pina-display in public.
“It’s not about how you look, but how you move through life. Look for smiles. Be yourself and when anyone tries to label you as less, push back. You owe it to yourself to be the best you, you can be. To all who have been told no, not now, you don’t match up. Too fat. Too thin. Too tall. Too short. Wrong color. Don’t try. Wrong gender. Wrong sex. Look clear eyed at what is said and reject what doesn’t apply. To all those who don’t fit, I celebrate you. I am one too.” (Ruel Mendoza)
