We introduce to you all, making her MOLLBABE modeling debut for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA and being part of the MOLLMAG MOLLBABE FAMILY for the month of OCTOBER 2021 aka Xiancha Oosthuizen alongside Photographer Eduard Labuschagne from ModelConnectRSA.

All the way from GAUTENG SOUTH AFRICA this stunning strong independent lady has a TRUE PASSION for MODELING & FITNESS!
We recently asked Xiancha the following… Where did the passion and love for modeling all start for her and we quote her by saying:
“I’ve always had a good sense of style, adaptability, and outstanding facial projection. I fell in love with photography because I believe that it’s the art of observation telling a story you cannot put into words.”
Furthermore Xiancha loves to be outdoors in the bushveld and relaxing with reading a book and enjoying her favorite glass of dry red wine and a bubble bath, as she’s a strong believer that there is “Nothing is more beautiful than a woman who is unapologetically herself!”
Let’s find out more as there is so much more beauty inside and outside this amazing woman as our CEO Arne Schreuder sat down in interviewing MOLLBABE MODEL Xiancha Oosthuizen & Photographer Eduard Labuschagne in this October month Editorial for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA – “Country Girl Vibes”

EDUARD FROM MODELCONNECTRSA – It’s always a true honor and joy to work with such amazing talent and getting featured with MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA, always thankful to Arne and the team!!
Xiancha please give us a short 4 sentence intro / bio to whom you are and where you reside from?
Born and raised in the heart of South Africa, Gauteng. I’m 26 years old. I am a…
“Courageous, energetic, strong, enthusiastic goal setting woman who always strives to radiate positive energy in all aspects of my life as well as others.”
Where did the passion and love for modeling all start for you Xiancha?
I’ve always had a good sense of style, adaptability, and outstanding facial projection. My love for modelling started three years ago when a close friend and photographer asked to shoot me for his portfolio.
Since then, I’ve been asked to partake in many photoshoots with well-known photographers.
“I fell in love with photography because I believe that it’s the art of observation telling a story you cannot put into words.”
What is it about modeling and fashion that intrigues you so much to express yourself Xiancha?
It’s the powerful art, movement and design all in one! Modelling is more than just beauty beyond the surface. It’s about enhancing the beauty from the inside out. Fashion is a form of self-expression of whom you are and how you present yourself to the world.
Today’s feature is all about that COUNTRY GIRL VIBES, tell us what made this photo shoot so special to you and what moment stood out the most for you that you will always remember?
XIANCHA FROM A MODEL’S VIEW – I am a real “plaas meisie” and this photoshoot showcased my Afrikaans roots / culture. “I have always loved being outdoors and would choose the bushveld over the beach any day!”
This photoshoot was the first I’ve done this year. I lacked the confidence to get back in front of a camera after having a difficult few months. You are your toughest critic and after seeing Eduard’s amazing work, I was in absolute awe.
This shoot was extremely special to me and reminded me to “embrace all my flaws, curves and imperfections by expressing it through fashion and accepting your body and loving it for what it is. I felt BEAUTIFUL!”
EDUARD FROM A PHOTOGRAPHER’S VIEW – I wanted to bring that true outdoors country girl feeling to it today and with the amazing bushveld landscape scenery and being out of lockdown due to COVID restrictions gave me the opportunity to explore those options.
Taking Xiancha back to her AFRIKAANS roots totally made her feel at ease and very comfortable for this “PLAAS MEISIE” photoshoot, as Arne said let’s keep it SASSY SEXY AND CLASSY with that GOLDEN HOUR of sunlight magic, which I bring every time!
“And with all of that you could see how Xiancha’s CONFIDENCE grew with each shot we took! Very proud of the final results”
As SUMMER SEASON in SOUTH AFRICA, what would you say is the perfect outfit or fashion statement trend for you at the moment Xiancha?
By the famous words of Shania Twain – “shirt, shorts, skirts”. At the moment I enjoy wearing crop tops and paring it with a jean or short and a pair of sandals.
Xiancha if people, family or your friends could describe you in 3 words what would those words be that describe you as a person the best, please share with us?
“My family and friends would describe me as fearless, inspirational, intelligent and positive. An absolute go getter!”
Let’s talk skincare and how do you care for your skin, knowing it’s the harsh hot SUMMER kicking in, give us a look into how you prepare or keep your skin healthy and glowing for SUMMER share with us your BEAUTY SECRETS Xiancha list them below?
I believe you should keep skincare simple…
- I cleanse, moisturize & apply serum on a daily basis. I apply a SPF 50+ sunscreen before applying my foundation as this protects my skin against pigmentation and skin cancer!
- Regular exfoliation or scrubs to keep the summer glow and keeping my skin hydrated by drinking lots of water and maintaining a balanced diet.
