Gleaming Mermaid: Vintage Elegance

There’s something about mermaids.

Their luminosity. Their siren beauty. It’s all so dreamy.

So when I came across this shoot of Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, who plays the mermaid Syrena in the Pirates of the Caribbean, it was love at first sight.

Vogue Italia and my photographic girl-crush, Ellen Von Unwerth, nailed it. This shoot exudes so much of what I love about unique vintage style. It’s delicate but imperfect. Dark, yet light. Insanely beautiful, but a touch haunting. Flawed, but complete. It’s my ideal take on vintage elegance.

And if you’re looking for some new vintage style tips, it’s downright sublime. From the red feathered hat to the flower corsage to the floral shoes, lace gloves and hair bows. Perfection. x
