Jessica Stam in Rodarte at MET 2009 Gala

I don’t think I’ve ever seen model Jessica Stam looking quite so gorgeous. Wearing a one-shouldered dress from Rodarte Autumn(Fall)/Winter 2009/2010, she was the queen of understated elegance at the 2009 MET Costume Institute Gala. The strength of Stam’s look comes from her perfect choice of makeup and hairstyle; the classic 40s-style wave is the perfect hair trend on her, while the black kohl brings out her blue eyes beautifully.

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.
