FACE of Zimbabwe winner Nadine Hahn is set to represent Zimbabwe on the international pageant scene at this years’ 20th edition of Top Model of the World to be held in El Gouna, Egypt.
The Harare model and former Miss Teen Zimbabwe won the Gtel-Face of Zimbabwe final held at the HICC in December last year.
Now she is set to travel to Egypt from March 17-31 as Zimbabwe’s representative.
Last year, former Miss Zimbabwe Malaika Mushandu came close to winning the pageant after emerging as first princess.
Luna Voce from Italy is the reigning Miss Top Model of the World.
Face of Zimbabwe marketing director Mike Tashaya said: “We are expecting her to do one better what Malaika and bring the crown home. We’re immensely proud to have discovered through Face of Zimbabwe a contestant to represent Zimbabwe at such as highly-regarded international pageant.”
The Face of Zimbabwe beauty has so far received corporate sponsorship for the trip from Harare-based mobile phone supplier, Gtel, who were also the headline sponsors for the Face of Zimbabwe final last year.
Her make-up will be supplied by Sleek-Make up and evening gown by leading fashion shop, Designer Closet.
In preparation for the event, Face of Zimbabwe has also sealed a sponsorship deal with Total Healthzone Gym who will put the model through her paces to get her in shape for Egypt.
Nadine will be coached by UK-based international pageant director, Hilda Mulenga, who is largely accredited with the success in international pageants of both Malaika Mashandu and Vanessa Sibanda.
“We are going all out to ensure that Nadine gets the best preparation she requires,” Tashaya said. “When she is out there, she will be representing Zimbabwe. We hope the public will show her love and support throughout the competition as our tourism ambassador.”
