Kloss, the new Moss

Some models have a little something extra: they have presence. Karlie Kloss is one of them. On a runway, she slinks, glides, powers, prowls; when she poses she don’t just use her body but her eyes. A quality like that is more obvious than ever when placed against the starkness of a plain white backdrop. The model has to work twice as hard to captivate, given the surroundings go none of the way to creating any feeling.

In this shoot for Numero, Kloss holds the power in the subtlety of a wry half-smile or in a smouldering glare. It’s not surprising she’s in demand both on the catwalk and in print.

If it’s not Karlie Kloss catching your attention in Tom Munro’s shoot, it’s likely to be the vibrant gloss of colours. The styling by Charles Varenne hits on the right colour trends for fall 2011, from Gucci’s rich teal and burgundy hues to the brights at the neon end of the scale. And the important thing to complete any colour-rich look such as these? Equally as eye-catching lipstick in fall’s colours.

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.
