It’s only right that the women who made pageant history would get together for a whole lot of “black girl magic” under the same roof.
We’re told not long after Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa was crowned in Atlanta, Miss USA’s Cheslie Kryst and Miss America’s Nia Franklin reached out to her to tell her they wanted to officially welcome her once she’s flown to NYC for her press tour.
And, that’s exactly what went down Wednesday night when Tunzi met up at Cheslie’s pad … where they were also joined by Nia. The American beauties also had a gift for Tunzi — a painting featuring the trio to commemorate their historic wins.
As you know by now … for the first time in history, black women swept the major pageants, which included Miss Teen USA’s Kaliegh Garris. Cheslie didn’t take long to appreciate the historic significance … saying she was proud to be part of this group.
So, what’d the girls talk about on girls’ night? They talked about progression, representation and how they hope a clean sweep by women of color sparks inspiration to women around the world. Their deep convo should come as no surprise — Miss Universe is an activist who fights against gender-based violence; Miss USA is an attorney who boasts a JD/MBA from Wake Forest; and Miss America advocates for female empowerment and music creativity.
