LOVE – “The Origin of Monsters”

monster1

Monsters are usually portrayed in books, movies and television as grotesque creatures. If you’ve read (or seen the movie) “Frankenstein”, you’ll see that people either run away from them or run towards them with torches and pitchforks in hand. This editorial from LOVE features Kristen McMenamy as a monster slayer and as a monster herself and the words dark, spooky, extravagant and artistic are not enough to describe her and the images. The editorial is titled “The Origin of Monsters” and it shows the American supermodel wearing glorious pieces from Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, some vintage Dior couture among many other labels and a couple of chain mail headdresses from the Royal National Theatre. The exquisite styling is done by LOVE’s Editor-in-Chief Katie Grand and the images are captured by British photographer Tim Walker for the magazine’s seventh issue.
