Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself.

Barbara Palvin speaking Hungarian is the most sensual language lesson you’ll ever get

i-D Magazine have been turning out a pretty neat series of videos in which models teach you to speak phrases in their mother tongues.

Sex and existentialism in a shoot by An Le

Emily Ratajkowski is sexy for Yamamay lingerie (but her beauty should be better taken advantage of)

If there’s a downside to Emily Ratajkowski‘s staggeringly impressive proportions, it’s that she tends to get pigeon-holed into shoots and campaigns that don’t bother to go beyond the bombshell cliches.
