If there was a way to look like a mermaid in winter, Aline Weber has found it. And she didn’t require any sequins, or starfish prints, or fish scales. Just a long velvet skirt that tails out, subtly, that shimmers, even more subtly… and hair worn out with a centre part for a flowing, Siren-like feel.
But the best magic trick of all is making a floor-length velvet gown oh-so-right for the daytime: just add a casual knit with rolled-up sleeves and away you go.
A simple way to make a splash. Mr Newton took the shot of Aline in London.
