Keira Knightley, the modern-day Guinevere in Chanel

UK Harper’s Bazaar know there’s no better poster girl for the delicately bewitching neo-Goth look than English rose Keira Knightley. She already has the flawless pale skin and dark eyes, so all that’s needed is to coat her shoulders in a blanket of Chanel feathers and match her lips to a dark red rose.

Photographer Ellen Von Unwerth and stylist Cathy Kasterine wanted to “transform Knightley in to a modern-day Guinevere” for the magazine’s September 2012 issue.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
