The observer may at first be certain that she's looking at an authentic 1970s photo shoot, but actually Glam Slam by Mariah Jelena is a convincing contemporary replica of a retro editorial. Together, stylist Andrew Zumbo, makeup artist Dylan Senthilan and hair stylist Lyndal Vile worked quite cleverly to dress these girls in stunning flashback fashions.

Sparkling golden gowns with skintight long sleeves are pictured next to high-waisted tapered pants and skirts. Wide-brim hats and chunky colorful earrings and bracelets beautifully complement bright orangey-red lipstick and natural tumbling curls.

While models Emily Thomas and Grace Moore exude a convincing air of vintage vixens, the Schon! #13 feature goes deeper than that. Glam Slam by Mariah Jelena is shot amidst a domestic setting of antique furnishings and fittings and each image is washed with a grainy filter to suggest age.
