Mayhem at a femme fatale’s hand

It’s basically a law of the cinematic world: the dangerous female spy/villain/superhero uses her sex appeal to get ahead. The men usually fall for it, like deer in the headlights; in many ways the woman’s beauty is her deadliest weapon, giving her superiority where physical strength falls short. Of course, whether she ultimately succeeds or fails depends on whether she’s the main protagonist of the story. If the narrative you happen to be swept up in is a James Bond one, you know he’ll always win out. It’s his story, after all.

But even with Skyfall – the latest in the James Bond frachise – hitting cinemas this year, Nican Robinson decided it was time to give the female secret agent her slice of victory. In this story the suave male spy is “sent to track down an opposing agent, only to fall prey to her cunning looks and attractiveness.”

As you can see from the pictures, things don’t end well for him. “What ensues is a buffet of mayhem at the hands of the stunner turned villain,” says Robinson.

Zach Bandler and a bob-wigged Iris Colburn dish out the right levels of grit and emotion in Robinson’s cinematic shoot, while Fey Leshner’s styling hits the sexy spy notes for both genders.

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.
