Six quintessential American looks: Vogue US

May 2010 sees Vogue US pulling together a flock of big-name models to bring six ‘quintessential looks’ from America’s recent history to life.

There’s a modern sporty take on the Gibson Girl with her curved silhouette and hair piled high; the artistic bohemian; the roaring-twenties flapper girl (brilliantly played by Chanel Iman); the patriot, dressed in military greens and camouflage prints; the screen siren (look out for Lara Stone resembling a young Kim Basinger); and the elegant debutante heiress with her waved hair and diamond jewels (below with Karlie Kloss and Frida Gustavsson).

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.
