The latest Vogue Portugal photography spread depicts a grungy Vika Mironova dressed in denims and leathers that hint at a circus influence. Each outfit features a ringmaster-esque hat, either a top hat or a fedora. This masculine hat, worn by such a feminine model as Mironova, creates an androgynous look. When paired with the loose-fitting fashion featured throughout the spread, this androgyny becomes even more enhanced.
One of the most stunning outfits featured in this spread consists of a black bodysuit worn over black fishnets, a colorful graphic t-shirt, a tweed jacket and a sleek black top hat. With the fishnets and bodysuit hinting at some kind of acrobatic influence and the top hat, adding a dash of masculinity, this outfit becomes a modernized, grungy example of ringmaster apparel.
With this editorial, it's clear that grungy fashion is coming back into the mainstream market in a big way. A cute circus-like twist makes this style a little chicer and a lot more fun.
