Drama out West: Lara Stone

Peter Lindburgh has a winning formula that goes a little something like this: beautiful young model, seasoned male actor, cinematic romance.

Some past works paired Daria Werbowy with David Strathairn, Daphne Groeneveld with Pascal Greggory. The latest: Lara Stone and American actor Fred Ward.

While there’s something inherently captivating about such a pairing – an endless fascination with younger women and older men – the romance in Lindbergh’s shoots isn’t overt nor is it sexual. It’s a romance in setting, and styling, and mood. In a few frames we can only glimpse snippets of a relationship, but in Lindbergh’s cinematic worlds, they always seem equal parts tumultuousness and tenderness.

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.
