Barbara Palvin in ‘Dark Angel’ by Jem Mitchell for the March issue of Elle UK
Posted Feb 08, 2013
Barbara Palvin gets a new set of wings in ‘Dark Angel’ by Jem Mitchell for the March Issue Elle UK. Giving us the flirty side of fantasy-inspired fashion, Palvin’s youthful beauty flies in the face of typical noir fare, with looks that are more virginal than vixen. However, while this doe-eyed Dark Angel might be lacking a bit of edge, it does give this the editorial a unique element of creative contrast. Embracing the innocence, (stylist) Anne-Marie Curtis plays up the angle of temptation with daring looks that emphasize the struggle between dark & light. Bringing in a bold mix of sexy & sweet, Mitchell dares to turn our fairy tale princess into a full fledged femme-fatale, with wild styles including avant garde accouterments of the lace-mask/bunny-ear variety.
