Cara Delevingne: angel of light

Most often when we see Cara Delevingne it’s in Burberry’s classic trench coats and London Look makeup; or perhaps some tomboy ensemble of leather biker pants and buckle boots. That’s both a strength, a natural fit for her British ‘it’ girl status, and an inevitable result of being a face of the Burberry brand. But while we always love seeing Cara in her attitude-laden, effortless gear, this shoot for Vogue Nippon’s December 2011 issue shines a light on another persona that she plays equally well: the soft, delicate femme.

Just as the light seeps through the cloudy ocean sky does it infiltrate the sheer dresses and skirts, making them light-filled forms in front of Solve Sundsbo’s lens. The lace and feathered pieces in a palette of all white make Cara appear not just feminine, but positively angelic.

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.
