Anja Rubik: snake charmer for Vogue Paris

It may have been a stroke of creative genius for stylist Veronique Didry to drape a real python alongside the snaking statement jewellery we admired in Lanvin’s Spring 2010 collection; but it was the seemingly unflappable Anja Rubik who cooly posed to make the shoot a reality. Anja wears her unusual live accessory alongside snakeskin bangles, boldly exotic and tribal jewellery, and one of Alexander McQueen‘s uniquely patterned alienous pieces. And to really play up the exotic sensuality of the situation, there’s also a bit of nudity, making this one a tad NSFW.

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.
