Kate Beckinsale: far from the Underworld

In case you couldn’t tell from her sudden reemergence into the world of fashion editorials, Kate Beckinsale has a film coming out. January issues coinciding with a January release: but this particular shoot is poles apart from the dark grittiness of the fourth instalment of the Underworld franchise – and that’s probable quite deliberate.

Instead Harper’s Bazaar Russia reminds us of just how pretty an English rose Kate Beckinsale can be. In this fashion fantasy world she’s a swinging ’60s mega-babe with a bouffant french twist and a wardrobe filled with lace blouses, delicate wrist-length gloves, retro hot pants and high-heeled Mary-Janes. Styled by Kira Shtranikh and Natalia Alaverdian, Beckinsale not only wears the outfits, she lives them the way an actress does.

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.
