Vogue Paris – “Le Noir Partie 3”
Theda Bara is a an American actor of the silent film era who was once known as “The Vamp”. Not only is it because of her looks that made her a sex symbol, it is also for her being a goth icon and her femme fatale roles in movies such as A Fool There Was and Cleopatra where she wore a lot of revealing costumes. This editorial from Vogue Paris features Kate Moss and Saskia de Brauw where they’re channeling the late great Theda Bara while in black and seductive clothing. The editorial, titled “Le Noir Partie 3” (“Black Part 3”), shows the two models in pieces from Costume National, Oscar de la Renta, Salvatore Ferragamo and many others styled by Katy England. The black and white images are lensed by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for Vogue Paris’ September 2012 issue.
