After spotting the stunningly beautiful Charlize Theron on the latest cover of local Women’s Glossy title rooi rose, I knew I just had to do a bit of investigation… A lot of people actually don’t know that rooi rose was the very first magazine cover that Charlize appeared on. Ever! It was also thanks to the rooi rose Model of the Year competition that she won at the age of 15, that allowed her to further her modeling career, and go overseas, and be spotted there!
With the help of rooi rose, I’m now not only able to show you her very first cover, and all the rooi rose covers since then, but also the very first article that appeared (in Afrikaans, unfortunately)!
I’m sure that any die hard Charlize Theron fan would find this type of information extremely interesting!
Feast your eyes on 23 years of Charlize/rooi rose beauty 🙂
Ps. rooi rose translates to “Red Roses” incase you were wondering…
