Punked-up Ana Beatriz

While I can’t empirically prove any direct correlation, it seems logical to suggest that the mainstream release of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has had some impact on fashion in general, and this shoot in particular. Those things traditionally considered alternative – piercings, punk mohawk hairstyles – are no longer so. It’s a blurred boundary these days and films like Dragon Tattoo only push the point further. The point being: subcultures can inspire the mainstream, too. This time, it comes in the form of luxury high fashion, toughed up and sprinkled with the kaleidoscopic shimmer of ’80s glam. Natalie Wansbrough-Jones’ creative styling is inspiration for the tough at heart.

It’s hard to believe that it’s Anna Beatriz Barros beneath the leather and mesh and mohawk. Photographed by Lee Broomfield for Elle UK’s March 2012 issue, you can view the full shoot at the thumbnails above.
