If you took a dark heroine from the pages of a Gothic romance and placed her in the modern day, what might she look like? The girl at the center of Steven Starr’s shoot Fashion Nicht could be one answer. Modelled by Krysta Unternahrer, and styled by Jenifer Toby, she’s both beautiful and dangerous, sultry and solumn, a shadowy figure who dwells in the darkness wearing spiked leather and black lace, spider web tangles of body-jewellery, and punkish cut-off crop tops.

Elena Ismail’s beauty looks are vampirically dark and yet simultaneously softly classic, while her hairstyling gives an added edge.
