The Abbey Brothers Smug Magazine editorial is super gritty. It follows a badass gunslinging girl who doesn't seem to have a care in the world -- or perhaps has too many cares. Dark and dangerous, the photo shoot offers a raw vision of Americana. There is a strong sense of patriotism as well as a love for firearms that borders on a blatant disregard for safety.

Shot by New York-based photographer Michael Donovan for the publication's 5th issue, the Abbey Brothers Smug Magazine editorial showcases his crass and candid style. The American beauty was outfitted by Priscilla Polley. Polley mashed together two different looks, Western and '80s vintage, for ensembles that are sensually contemporary while complementing the overall theme.
