Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: retro infusion at the Met

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s Burberry dress for the Metropolitan Museum Of Art 2012 Costume Institute Benefit has an understated kind of glamour, with its full sleeves and delicately trailing train, it’s hand-embellished collar and soft copper shimmer. But once you add a pair of drop earrings and a chic up-do the whole thing takes on a kind of Mad Men-style 1960s feel; more to both the brand and the wearer’s credit.

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.
