Romantic Nostalgia Meets a Modern Edge

This styled shoot is the perfect sweet spot between romantic nostalgia and modern edge. After all, there's something so refined and elegant when it comes to European style. On one hand it is so glamorous and opulent, but on the other it's paired back and raw. It's the masterful balance between the two that inspired this shoot that took place in Melbourne a few weeks ago with an absolute dream team where Montsalvat set the scene for the magic that was about to unfold...


The hair and makeup by Sophie Knox was an ode to the golden age of glamor, with Indiana looking like a screen siren who stepped off the red carpet into the enchanting grounds of Montsalvat. This helped bring a sense of romantic nostalgia and a feeling like we were in the grounds of a grand old chateau in the South of France


Billowing clouds of tulle, a feminine colour palette of soft blush and clean white tones and thigh high splits made for the perfect sweet spot between romantic and modern. The moody blooms by Poppy Culture added the perfect final element in this styled shoot.
