Annelies Maria Francine never uses Photoshop to look like the timeless beauties such as Audrey Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, a flapper girl or Anne Frank. The Puers, Belgian teenager just knows that with her timeless look she can transform to just about anyone from more classic eras where impeccable hair, perfect makeup, and a stylish wardrobe were the standard.

The 17-year-old has a timeless face allowing her be a chameleon that changes seamlessly. Annelies relies on her vintage finds to bring her vision to life which she posts on her Instagram account for her over 18,000 followers
