Lindsey Wixson in the doll’s house

What would have happened if Lindsey Wixson had proved unavailable to model for this shoot? That’s what I find myself wondering, considering that with those button lips and that dimpled chin, it seems to have been conceptualised just for her.

Like a Doll is the title. Like a doll she is. Not just by her nature, but by the styling: candy colours and sheer knee-high stockings, both her clothes and the (oddly creepy) giant doll that inhabits her world seeming to have jumped out of some ’60s children’s book.

Despite the sweet styling Wixson could almost, with her bee-stung lips, be the blonde, fringed Angelina Jolie we know from Girl Interrupted.

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.
