This devilishly chic fashion editorial for AnOther Magazine features dark forest settings. The dark, elegant gowns seen here are Valentino-inspired, which is why the series is simply titled ‘Valentino.’ These feminine frocks are dropped into an eerily intoxicating setting, making these looks all the more appealing.

The models in this editorial sport disheveled hairstyles, vacant stares and long, claw-like nails. All of these elements add to the sinister and seductive nature of the series. There’s something almost romantic about the gloomy backgrounds in these shots. Each photo is a blend of stained glass, rose bushes, statues and vines. The viewer is drawn into this dark Victorian-style world.

This dusky, roguish editorial is filled with bewitching Valentino-inspired couture, from long floral print frocks, to black velvet gowns. Stats for Eerie Victorian Editorials Trending: Older & Buzzing
