The fashion editorial 'Mode de Circonstance' seen in the November 2011 issue of L'Officiel Paris proves that French glamor never dies.

Model Bregje Heinen rocks designer looks styled with a 1940s aesthetic in mind. The fashion pictorial lensed by photographer Matthias Vriend-McGrath and styled by Vanessa Bullugeon successfully marries vintage Parisian glamor along with modern fashion aesthetics.

In Mode de Circonstance, the model wears looks from the likes of Tom Ford, Lanvin, Valentino, Nina Ricci, MIU MIU, Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood and others. Sensual and structured silhouettes and retro-inspired hair and makeup looks give the editorial a definite Old Hollywood vibe. Haute head pieces, fur stoles and coquettish cat eye shades are just some of the very dynamic accessories that turn up the volume on this feisty fashion shoot.
