Frida Gustavsson Plays the Provocateur in Vogue Russia by Patrick Demarchelier

Frida Gustavsson goes undercover for Patrick Demarchelier in the October issue of Vogue Russia.  Trading on her skills as a modern provacatuer, this edgy, chameleon revels in her role as an undercover lover.  Set in a forgotten palace just outside of Moscow, our dark vixen shows up for her clandestine meeting, decked out in decadence.  Surrounded by peeling walls of aging opulence, this season’s sartorial riches stand-out in stunning contrast, to the fallen era of elegance depicted in this dilapidated decor.  Fall’s luxurious lineup put on display. Leather, fur, silk and brocade, these looks could entice any girl to take a walk on the dark side.  This year’s fierce fashions are as much a statement of empowerment, as style.  Long assumed to exist exclusively for the male population, these fantasy-inspired looks reflect a new fascination with the character of the femme-fatale. Wanting to break free from the shackles of repression, we are ready to explore the boundaries of our own passions & strength.  Source (visualoptimism).
