The Bambi Northwood-Blyth Harper's Bazaar Russia photo shoot, which is featured in the magazine's January 2012 issue, is a lesson in retro glamor. Escaping from the styles of years past like boho-chic and glam rock, this is one shoot that really hones in on femininity in what is perhaps an old-fashioned view of the idea.

Nonetheless, these refined silhouettes, pastel hues, and natural hair and makeup work together and somehow end up looking like a fresh and modern tribute to the 50s and 60s, rather than appearing outdated.

Styled by Natalie Joos and shot by photographer Natalia Alaverdian, the Bambi Northwood-Blyth Harper's Bazaar Russia photo shoot, with its headscarves and floral shell tops, is conservatively chic and is a sophisticated way to kick off the new year.
