The new Vogue UK editorial titled 'Jewel Purpose' and featuring model Julia Nobis is a rich photo shoot displaying some striking aristocratic fashion.

Nobis is dressed in dandy-style outfits in royal blues and whites. Her high-collared white blouse paired with a royal blue velour cape and a gold chain gives her strong Victorian-era charm. Nobis's rather androgynous features complement the masculine clothing she wears and evokes a sense of gender fluidity. Her pale complexion and white-blonde hair also enhances the sense of aristocracy; it is almost as if Nobis could be placed in the Victorian era without a problem.

Photographer Scott Trindle does a great job of highlighting Nobis's strong cheekbones and jawline with his use of side-lighting and a stark white background.

With aristocratic fashion looking so amazing in 'Jewel Purpose' perhaps it will gain footing in the mainstream fashion industry and bring back some Victorian-era style.
