The midas touch

You couldn’t find a better word than glam to describe a look that wraps the body in a shroud of shimmering gold, matched by golden hair that cascades into classic waves.

For the November 2011 issue of Vogue Mexico, Sarah Gore-Reeves’ styling is all about the metallics. But it’s also about texture. How that texture plays out goes a long way to determining the mood of the piece: from the ultra-modern feel of a dress made from sequins that crawl the body like reptile skin, to a suit of liquid gold that leans to the 1970s interpretation of glamour. In every one of David Roemer’s shots, Maryna Linchuk is transformed into a golden Goddess of some kind.

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.
