Stylespiration: Bardot meets Barbarella

Valerie van der Graaf has this hair that just cascades down in a merciless assault of retro-glamour. It’s that hair that’s central to this shoot’s theme of Bardot meets Barbarella, for where would either of them be without their colossal mounds of sex kitten hair? Add to that van der Graaf’s impossible curves and oozing sensuality, and styling inspiration for slick, minimal outfits and you have yourself one must-view shoot.

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.
