Montreal, Canada-based fashion designer and photographer Cloe Legault's recent series 'Tuxedo Chic' is a blend of formal and funky fashion mixed with a dash of androgyny.
From feathered dresses to purple tuxedos, the clothing has a definite dinner-wear vibe. The looks are also in many instances quite androgynous, giving the photography a provocative edge. Complimenting the outfits is a twilight tint that pervades the entire series to varying degrees. The model also seems to make a point of wearing reserved, almost taciturn expressions. Through elements such as these, Cloe Legault works towards a mysterious film noir feel.
The setting is also worth mentioning. The viewer finds the model alone in a grande old hotel, which works perfectly with the other moody, film noir elements that Legault has done so well to create.
