Fifties doll

As an era 1950s produced some of the most elegant silver-screen stars the world has ever known – including, of course, the inimitable Grace Kelly. And so it’s with an appropriateness that Benjamin Kanarek‘s latest pictorial for Harpers Bazaar en Espanol takes the title Elegant 50′s, and portrays, with polished perfection, the mood of the era. Model Michelle Westgeest sports blonde waves and full skirted frocks in some settings of Brobdingnagian furniture that make her look truly like a manicured doll.

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.
