The haunting looks in the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 ad campaign will sear themselves into people's minds--in a good way, of course. The dark raccoon eyes, pallid skin and blood red lips make models Marie Piovesan and Marte Mei Van Haaster look like they were plucked out of a Tim Burton film. Nevertheless, there is more of a Victorian vibe than a Gothic horror one, which is perpetuated by the choice of dresses and large-rimmed hats.
Shot by United Kingdom-based German photographer Juergen Teller, the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 ad campaign beautifully showcases a different type of beauty. The American designer is known for his unorthodox campaigns, which is often a refreshing change from the skin-revealing, sensual ones out there.
