The photo shoot starring Karmen Pedaru by Hedi Slimane is mysteriously dramatic, like an old detective movie in which the shadows play as many tricks as the criminals do themselves. Full of artfully arranged strips of light and dark, thanks to set designer Peter Klein, dystopian vibe lends a futuristic aesthetic to the entire editorial.

Shot for Vogue Paris' December 2011 issue, model Karmen Pedaru by Hedi Slimane strikes chic poses in sleek ensembles. Styled by Melanie Ward, she is draped in designs from such fashion houses as Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Fendi and Giorgio Armani. Although the bold makeup and asymmetrical hair gives her a tough look, Pedaru is beautifully feminine in her form-fitting outfits. Stats for Artfully Shadowed Editorials Trending: Older & Mild
