Don’t be fooled by those who use black as a means to blend in, the notions of a “gothic” colour and style have been far removed from their late 20th century association of smudged makeup and spikey, punk details. We see a gothic transformation come through in this shoot by Milos. Porcelain skin, deep maroon lips and glamorous hairstyles create a style to be sought-out, and envied, by any woman with the wish to harness this clear level of sophistication and allure.
Stylist, Shannon Meddings, creates an elegant juxtaposition between modern and traditional, with true neo-gothic undertones of shading in colours of bottle green and gold; give black a fresh twist and a highlighting upliftment. With dull being the furthest order of the day the models’ hair, by Linh Nguyen, and make-up, by Maree Spagnol, are combined to create a powerful refinement of dark lips, dark eyes, pale skin and blushing cheeks.
Allow the darkness and secrets of this dark-aged style to lead you into a new sense of awareness and a new sense of style; draped in elegance and clouded in mystery.
