Stylist Roma Matthäi assembles a wardrobe that delivers modern nostalgia. Vintage tops meet lace underwear, and laid-back pants complete the look. It’s a sartorial blend that feels like a Sunday morning—comfortable yet stylish.

Meanwhile, Katharina Feske, the shoot’s hair and makeup artist, adds the finishing touches. Leslie’s shaggy blonde waves and berry lip color round out the visual narrative. This photo series is a celebration of the beauty in simplicity with a nod to the art of casual elegance.
