Marie Claire South Africa May 2010

This is the general consensus among the impossible beautiful and otherworldly creatures who kindly agreed to grace Marie Claire’s cover the month and pose for an exclusive fashion shoot in New York to celebrate two red-hot South African designers while there were at it.
