The sticky sweet darkness of the grungy getup

The nonchalance of grunge wear never goes without notice when viewing the overall impression of these gorgeously grim photo shoots. Photographed by Daniel Savage, this slim and slinking frame on fashion is heavily toned with the ideas of androgyny and 1990’s polished street-wear. The simplistic and classic use of black and white, as put forth by stylist Mark Holmes, allows you to fall completely into the mood of the shoot; sullen, sexual, dour.

There is a perfect connection between the slender qualities of a female figure and the masculine elements of effeminate clothing: shapely coats, tight fitting cotton pants and delicate silver accessories meet bulking soldier boots, oversized waist-coats and leather finishes. This mesmerizing photography shoot done for The Wild Magazine is a truly beguiling presentation of someone beautiful wearing some beautiful things in a morbidly unconventional manner.

Hair, done by Staci Child, and make-up, by Jessica Ross, complete the look and the feel of the shoot. Deeply smoky eyes compliment the teased and poofed jet-black strands of model, Brenda’s head.
