A sex symbol in the making

Apparently this shoot’s title translates to Sex Symbol. With Valerie van der Graaf in 50s Bombshell ensembles replete with headscarves, winged eyeliner, and dangerous curves, who could argue?

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.

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