Punked-up Ana Beatriz

While I can’t empirically prove any direct correlation, it seems logical to suggest that the mainstream release of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has had some impact on fashion in general, and this shoot in particular. Those things traditionally considered alternative – piercings, punk mohawk hairstyles – are no longer so. It’s a blurred boundary these days and films like Dragon Tattoo only push the point further. The point being: subcultures can inspire the mainstream, too. This time, it comes in the form of luxury high fashion, toughed up and sprinkled with the kaleidoscopic shimmer of ’80s glam. Natalie Wansbrough-Jones’ creative styling is inspiration for the tough at heart.

It’s hard to believe that it’s Anna Beatriz Barros beneath the leather and mesh and mohawk. Photographed by Lee Broomfield for Elle UK’s March 2012 issue, you can view the full shoot at the thumbnails above.

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.
