74 Haute Gothic Editorials

From Modern Femme Fatale Fashion to Eerie Etherealism Editorials

— June 23, 2013 — Fashion
These eerie, gothic editorials feature exclusively serious expressions and dark edgy clothing. Photographed in despaired, somber dungeon-resembling atmospheres, there is no mistaking the mood these gothic editorials are trying to evoke. Through the use of structured avant guard clothing and shadowy backgrounds, these gothic editorials tell an emotionally heavy story.

Moody gothic editorials are heavily saturated with dark haired beauties. That's not to say that blond hair cannot be goth -- it totally can. There is, however, very little room for bright colored clothing in these gothic editorials. Towering high stilettos are a yes, but brightness of any kind is a definitely a no. Creepy shadows peer out at ominous angles from behind the towering models. Deep gothic emotion is felt with impact. Gothic editorials are almost always photographed outside, which allows for even more creepy atmospheric elements. Misty forests and decrepit alleyways allow for the romantic accessories and prominent makeup to stand out.

From haute vamp editorials to leather-centric collections, if you are interested in emulating mysteriously gothic style, take your cues from these gothic editorials.
