Annelies Maria Francine describes herself on her Instagram as “Just a girl with big dreams and a vivid imagination.” But what’s amazing is that this teen has turned her passion for all things vintage into an inspiring Instagram account that we can’t stop watching.

From Snow White to Anne Frank, Annelies transforms her look with the right make up, hair and clothing to look like the spitting image of everyone she emulates.

We picked some of our favourites here.

Snow White

“Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.”

Daisy Buchanan, The Great Gatsby

“Her face was sad and lovely with bright things in it, bright eyes and a bright passionate mouth, but there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget: a singing compulsion, a whispered “Listen,” a promise that she had done gay, exciting things just a while since and that there were gay, exciting things hovering in the next hour.”

Scarlett O’Hara, Gone With The Wind

“Her eyes were pale green without a touch of hazel, starred with bristly black lashes and slightly tilted at the ends. Above them, her thick black brows slanted upward, cutting a startling oblique line in her magnolia-white skin-that skin so prized by Southern women and so carefully guarded with bonnets, veils and mittens against hot Georgia suns.”

Anne Frank

Elizabeth Bennet, Pride & Prejudice

“I must confess that I think her as delightful a character as ever appeared in print, and how I shall be able to tolerate those who do not like her at least, I do not know”.

Audrey Hepburn

“Her image is clean-cut, gamine yet feminine, chic. When we do features at Glamour on how to achieve a “timeless” look, we often look back to Audrey.” Jo Elvin.

Belle, Beauty & the Beast

“Now, it’s no wonder that her name means ‘beauty’; her looks have got no parallel. But behind that fair facade, I’m afraid she’s rather odd—very different from the rest of us…”
