Bronte Tagliani is comfortable in front of a camera. A professional model, she’s been photographed in swimsuits, pantsuits and more for magazines, websites and newspapers.

But Bronte – the wife of Verizon IndyCar Series driver Alex – will be the one pointing the lens when the busy month of May begins at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As Alex prepares for a run in the Indianapolis 500 on Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing’s team, Bronte will be walking around the track, collecting snaps for a fashion blog, BellenNoir.com (which means “beautiful in black” in French). She’ll document what she wears while Alex races and at Indy 500 parties and appearances, too.

She also plans to include the paddock’s other style mavens, so expect shots of Scott Dixon’s wife, Emma, James Hinchcliffe’s girlfriend, Kirsten Dee, and Charlie Kimball’s fiancée, Kathleen Thompson. And photos and commentary on anyone around IMS whose look catches her eye also will be included, she said.

“It’s just another social media outlet for me. I love Instagram and I love Twitter,” said Bronte. “It’s going to be a more expanded Instagram, more like a story in pictures. I don’t know where it’s going to take me.”

The site launches from Indianapolis in May, but Bronte, who is Australian, plans to update it as she travels.

“I just want to highlight street style – what people are wearing, what I’m wearing and the cool things I’m seeing,” she said. “The Speedway is going to be a great place to get pictures.”

Although she says she doesn’t have expected results for the project, anyone who knows Bronte knows to expect the unexpected.  Even in her own look.

Bronte Tagliani's new blog will feature street fashion from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May.

Racing fans who have seen hundreds of photos of Bronte will immediately recognize her, or most of her, when they visit BellenNoir.com.

One thing is different. She recently traded her long-time short brunette hairdo for a bleached blonde look. The reason: She wanted to know what it’s like to be blonde, so she’s giving it a try.

    Bronte – my husband loves your hair. Is it thick or thin and what do you use to achieve the foxy look?

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
