This past Friday, Style Authority posted a collection of black and white photographs to celebrate Women’s Day. Wearing nothing but exquisite jewels by Uwe Koetter – gorgeous influencers from around Cape Town bared it all in this raw, natural shoot that praises the beauty, strength and magic that all women possess, while remaining true to their individuality. 

To make it more personal we snapped a few behind the scenes polaroids and filmed some videos with empowering messages from our lovey models.

I am the Creative Director of Style Authority and have worked with various fashion teams both locally and internationally. I decided to celebrate Women’s Day with this all natural shoot, capturing incredible and influential women wearing nothing but fine jewellery. 


Retha Lethoko

Retha is a South African model and Influencer. She is strong and confident, and is a role model for women across the country. 

In this shoot she is captured wearing a gold plated, pearl embellished chastity belt. This is a powerful message that states that each and every woman is in charge of her own body and sexuality.
