Haunted, but not uncanny: living doll makeup you can wear

14 year old model Alexandra could easily be mistaken for a living doll. Her eyes and wide and round, her cheeks gently smattered with freckles. It’s no wonder that photographer Remi Rebillard chose to cast her in a haunted dream world where dolls and humans are one and the same come night fall.

Marianne Tamposi created the hair and makeup looks that transform living skin into the polished perfection of a life-size mannequin. But there’s always some humanity to Alexandra’s looks. If you’ve seen the internet-spurred phenomena of girls making themselves look like human barbie-dolls via styling, makeup, and contact lenses, then perhaps what Rebillard’s shoot is inspiring is a less extreme and more wearable version. Rebillard’s doll may be living the haunted life of a dark fairytale, but she does it with enviable beauty.

Styled by Lawnette Lucille in doll-like ensembles that, like the makeup, never transcend into cartoon parody, Rebillard’s shoot is all about creating a sombre and haunted mood. His trademark use of shadows and shots taken from behind glass do the job perfectly.

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.
