While women like Anne Hathaway and Kate Middleton are bringing back glamorous, lady-like looks into the limelight, the Fetiche Noir photo spread shows that the general public is still being drawn to a more risque fashion theme. Yet, it also shows that elegance is nevertheless a priority, demonstrating just how someone can strike a tenuous balance between these two seemingly opposing worlds.
Shot by fashion photographer Fabio Bartelt for Elle Brazil, the Fetiche Noir photo spread stars the lustful, 29-year-old model Ana Beatriz Barros. Captured completely in black and white, the shoot has an old Hollywood feel to it that really drives the emphasis on glamor home. Yet, sensual props such as whips and chained collars as well as seductive clothing such as leather corsets and thigh-high stockings really sets an amorous mood.
