Edward Cullen, the vampire character played by Robert Pattinson, is the inspiration for this fashion editorial called “Into The Twilight.”

Young model Lucas Mascarini is styled by Kenneth Vernon as the alluringly solemn vampire with photography by Vincent Paul Yong. The editorial appears in the new issue of NewMan, a Malaysian men's magazine. This is the latest example of 'Twilight' mania, see more below.

Implications - Thanks to the success of Twilight, True Blood and other magical pop culture products, supernatural elements have been romanticized. The lighter approach to vampires is bringing in a younger audience who can now enjoy horror in a PG-13 manner. This has inspired many brands use this new family-friendly imagery of macabre themes in products that can now be targeted toward the younger demographic.
