A bare-skinned portrait of beauty

The thing about beauty is that we never tire of looking at it. We may want shiny new beautiful things to look at, but nonetheless beauty will always grasp at our attention. When beautiful photography and a beautiful subject come together, then it doesn’t matter if you decide to call it fashion, or portraiture, or art… all three become closely intertwined.

This series of model Agnes Pulapa doesn’t include any clothing and rather focuses on the beauty. Photographer Thomas Babeau – who acknowledges Paolo Roversi as inspiration – used natural light to shoot the series, bathing it in a vintage-meets-modern feel.

Neither Babeau’s photography nor Stephanie Jacquet’s makeup covers up Pulapa’s fresh, freckled skin – to both their credit and to the best outcome of the shoot.

Hairstylist Raphael Mariage rounded out the team.

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.
