Yes, "innocently sinister" may be a paradox, but so is Nasty Gal’s latest collection showcased in a shoot called 'Cross Your Heart.' The collection is the perfect combination of white lace, cream crochet and heaven-sent chiffon paired with spikes and studs, gunmetal jewelry, heavy body chains and crucifixes.
The editorial is where heaven meets hell as it features an angelic model, Hailey Clausen, in heavy black make-up, veiled in black and white lace with her hands often touching in front of her chest in a stance reminiscent of a prayer pose. Photographer Zoey Grossman went so far as to shoot flawless Hailey, styled by Ashley Glorioso, in a church while sporting a leather cross belt, leather high-waisted short shorts and a see-through white crochet top: virginal and sinful at the same time.
There are a several notable pieces from this collection, including the Harness Dress, which combines a feminine chiffon high-low hem with an S&M-like leather harness neck. The Leather Cross Belt and the Corset Shorts contrasted with the Isabella Lace Dress with gorgeous crochet bell-bottomed sleeves would make the perfect wardrobe for all those girls who can be naughty and nice. So cross your heart and hope to buy, because this collection is available to purchase.
