A personification of sex & glam

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.

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. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
