SOWETAN Women's Club R10000 makeover recipient Naume Maleka of Limpopo, says she was over the moon when she heard she was the winner.
Maleka was flown from Polokwane to OR Tambo International Airport, where she was met by Revlon project manager Kamo Hlalele and whisked off in a chauffeur-driven limousine.
Arriving in Sandton, Maleka said: "You always see limos on TV but I didn't imagined I would ever ride in one it was fantastic."
The mother of two young boys, Maleka admitted to not having spent money on herself since her sons were born.
"I used to buy a lot of clothes but now I spend all my money on my naughty boys! I'm looking forward to going home a new me."
Image consultant Doris Msibi was eager to get Maleka into the clothing stores, where she picked out clothing to suit Maleka's body shape.
"I am an administrator at Unisa and I rarely get to wear casual clothes," Maleka said.
"I absolutely love the bright colours and styles Doris has picked, especially the shoes.
"They are so beautiful, stylish and sexy."
Chuffed with her purchases, Maleka was escorted to a salon where she was treated to hair extensions.
Maleka put on her new evening dress.
"Wow, is that really me?" she asked.
" I look so beautiful. I feel so good and so pretty. I love my hair - it looks like Beyoncé's.
"The timing of this make-over is just perfect," she explained.
"I have a gala dinner tomorrow night and I know everyone is going to be surprised when they see me."
Rushing off to catch her plane back home, Maleka said: "I hope my boyfriend and my sons recognise me when they pick me up!"
