If you could personify a retro-glam interpretation of pure sex, it might look a little something like this.
In one shot, Sabrina Nait struts down a country road in an open tuxedo jacket, stilettos, suspender belt and sheer black stockings; wrists and neck dripping in diamonds, hand clutching a crop. It’s an outfit that doesn’t even pretend to aim towards the subtle, one that ticks all the cliche boudoir boxes and does so with perfect execution and a heightened sense of seductiveness.
In another it’s voluminous furs, a thick metal choker and an equine companion. The mere presence of the latter strengthens the retro vibe even more, jogging one’s subconscious with images of Bianca Jagger, who famously arrived to her own birthday at Studio 54 – wearing a Halston jumpsuit and bucketloads of attitude – atop a white horse. There was one women who knew how to make an entrance, and one we can only image Greg Kadel’s shoot drew plenty of inspiration from.
If you’re currently sporting (or growing out) 2011’s longer bob hairstyle Kadel’s shoot, which is from issue #125 of Numero Magazine, is also prime inspiration for how to style it with retro flair. Volume is mandatory – waves should be soft (try hot rollers over a curling wand) and curled away from the face for maximum 70s impact.
