Smokey-eyed, sultry, sexy… the things Natasha Poly does best, and yet that we’ve been missing since she didn’t appear on the spring 2013 runways. But thankfully Madame Figaro and the lens of Satoshi Saikusa have our dose of Poly sorted for their October issue. In all black outfits from black mesh to that Gothic Gucci cape, there’s no colour needed – just the occasional pop…
She stayed off the runway for the spring 2013 season, but that doesn’t mean Natasha Poly isn’t in demand. As well as covering Vogue China she lends her Gothic beauty to a slightly morose looking fall 2012 issue of i-D magazine.

It’s a prim and proper Natasha Poly that stars on Vogue Turkey’s September 2012 cover, dressed in all autumnal browns with chocolatey satin sleeves peeking out from a winter cape. The peachy-pink cheeks add a warmth to the whole look.
