100 Mysteriously Masked Model Shoots

From Accessorized Avante-Garde Editorials to Masquerade Shoots

— July 22, 2013 — Lifestyle
These mysteriously masked models are in disguise. Models usually play up a wide range of characters in photoshoots and the use of props like masks makes this much easier. Whether bedazzled, feathered or surreal in design, masks drastically amplify one's mystique. While some are worthy of masquerade parties, others look dark in nature and can even be horrifying.

Some designers and stylists use masks to pay tribute to the world of art. Martine Rose's Spring/Summer 2013 Collection features runway models masked in pantyhose-like veils, inspired by renowned Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini and his Baroque marble sculptures. The masks are skin-tight with no holes for the eyes, nose or mouth; they look uncomfortable to say the least. But because of their meaningful motive along with their peculiar appearance, the masks caught much attention at London Fashion Week.
