She’s no angel: The Last Virgin by Elena Kuznetsova

When religion trespasses the shores of the fashion world, you can expect the results to be anything but uncontroversial. Naughty nuns, spiritual decadence, plays upon forbiddance and innocence, chained in tradition or pure avant-garde, we have seen it all, as the fashion industry continues to cross lines and push boundaries. Photographer Elena Kuznetsova pursued the clerical inspiration by taking yet a different path. With the…

Nicola Finetti purity meets sexiness: weekend watch

The short film, directed by Alex Goddard, is made for Nicola Finetti’s autumn/winter 2013 collection. The whole collection is very playful yet pure with the monastic hats combined with the provocative and sexy clothes. “The inspiration for the AW/13 collection are nuns, who have the best uniform of any profession – Nicola considers their dresses a haute couture habit.”

Wicked Magdalena this way comes

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” Fashion editorials are rarely intended to be the stuff of nightmares. But a few carefully applied smudges of white on some darkly-lit photographs make this particular shoot truly something wicked, and it’s a purposeful feat. Magdalena Frackowiak is today’s babe-in-a-nun-habit (a broken stereotype we see a lot of) only this time it’s not just…

Strictness & starch: Freja and Arizona

Starchy, high white collars and long black skirts are often translated, editorially, into sexy nun outfits. Pair them with nudity and cigarettes and you’ve got a perfect contrast on your hands – hence why, for a while, the mix of sensuality and religion gave us everything from Miranda Kerr to Jess Hart and Lydia Hearst all breaking out of the religion stereotypes.  It was like Sister Act, only…

Even more nuns

I have well and truly run out of things to say on the matter of religious-themed fashion shoots featuring sexy nuns that clutch at their cigarettes with more fervour than they do their rosary beads… That’s not a criticism of said shoots – there have been some great ones. It’s simply that the trend toward using religious motifs is one that has remained surprisingly strong.…

More naked nuns: Jessica Hart & Lydia Hearst

Is there not, in the fashion world, an obsession with breaking stereotypes? There’s certainly a habit (pun intended) of turning the nun stereotype upside-down as a way of constructing a sexualised, surprising shoot concept. Only problem is it’s no longer very surprising, given we’ve seen similar examples with Ashley Smith, Lara Stone and Miranda Kerr to name just a few. But while the religious contradiction…

A fancy cornette in Mirrin’s Spring 2010 Issue

Nothing like a bit of irreligiosity in the morning to start ones day. This latest pictorial to catch our eye features a model wearing what could only be very loosely described as a nun’s habit… And could only be described as such if nuns suddenly developed a penchant for sheer clothing and nudity. Not a look we think would work for most nuns although Alisa…
