Marie Claire: The Naked issue

In a bid to raise awareness and some cash for the Burn Foundation Southern Africa, Marie Claire South Africa asked 31 celebrities to go commando in front of the camera and the cover featuring Jack Parrow (ek is) and swimwear model (Parow's girlfriend), Jenna Pietersen is mcuh milder than the erotics in the mag.
In true Marie Claire style, people had to gather and nibble on something while live performers entertained... yes, a party to present the donation and just give a quick roundup of the naked campaign.

Among the guest was a man who has, in his life, made only 3 women happy: his mother, his wife and his mother-in-law, the rest are still recovering from the horror that he's really married, c'est la vie! Of course I'm referring to Idol Jacques Terre'blanche and his wife Charne.
Did I mention that the master of ceremony, David Levinsohn, was naked? No? well, he was!Spotted in the crowd, the ever-fashionable Sharon Becker (Marie Claire Fashion Director) with her friend.
Seconds later, it dawned on me that the night was a leopard print party. Proof is in the "Ode to leopards and cheetahs" below:
Sharon Becker (in what looks like a Kluk CGdT number) with Aspasia Karras (Marie Claire Editor) in the background...

...also seen in a full dress (love the cut too)... the pants.. the shoes...
...and in the tops.
Also in the crowd were soap opera stars, Samkelo Ndlovu and Japhta Mamabolo (in front of a blown-up poster of their salacious pose... followed by an equally salacious pose for the DeGorge camera)
Obviously a night is not complete until bloggers take snaps of each other:

Thrifting queen, Mademoiselle Funi in a summery matron garb
Man behind Trends Beyond Threads, Sandiso Ngubane opted for an oversized shirt, De-Gorge!
...complete with orange shoes - love orange shoes... not because im also weraing them but they add a pop of colour to my current love of simplicity
Silly ol' me: carrying one of my favourite bags by Ituen Basi to match my Driver Shoes, Kurt Geiger (in line with my current love for matchy-matchy looks).
