Contemporary Transilvanian Couture

'The Lady is a Vamp' Shows How Demons Become Vixens

— May 11, 2011 — Fashion
The myth of vampires has been used throughout history to represent the dangers of mysterious women, but 'The Lady is a Vamp' takes this imagery out of context to show how looking devilishly attractive is now more virtue than vice.

Photographers Seth Karecha and Ron Contarsy collaborated on these fantastical spreads for the May 2011 issue of Hong Kong Tatler. The ravishing blonde Sam Rayner brings a softness to dark and detailed fashions, with piercing eyes and a sinfully flawless figure that might have caused some to look away.

A sinuous 1920s hairstyle by Dante Blandshaw gives the model a classic sophistication that's enhanced by couture looks of lace, feathers, tassels and draped silk. The looks of 'The Lady is a Vamp' capture a foxy, feminine image that marks the era when such a term and a type became more irresistible.
