Immaculate styling, clean composition: Malina Corpadean for Bambi

That Malina Corpadean counts academia and an inner fascination with art history amoung the influences on her aesthetic style should come as no surprise. Her latest shoot for issue 12 of Bambi Magazine is executed with a studied, near mathematical precision, suggesting that someone with a mind for fine art is behind the lens engineering every shot. Someone to whom composition is as important as colour, to whom every line and shadow holds a purpose in directing attention, creating symmetry or drawing the eye to a desired point.

Hairstylist Greg Wencel and stylist Annie Horth round out a perfect team, setting to work on transforming the flawless body and delicate, symmetrical features that make model Bekah Jenkins such a perfect blank canvas. Wencel’s makeup is barely there, the slick chignon set with not a hair out of place. If Jenkins’ character were a real life woman she’d be the kind who’s meticulous, elegant, strong and self-disciplined.

Together Horth’s styling and Corpadean’s photography accentuate the best of Bekah’s body, but not all at once: a waist here, the décolletage or a a toned upper thigh there. Thanks to the cleanness with which every outfit, every shot, is put together, there are no real extremes. Versace’s cross-studded black leather skirt is dark without being Gothic. Thigh high boots are sexy without being fetishist. Slouchy Celine pants and loafers are androgynous without being mannish.

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.
