A Gangster Fairytale: Magical, Rich and Racy
On a recent outing with photographer
, we explored the park while I played dress up.
This outfit was inspired by 20s style Boardwalk Empire and one of my favorite fairytales: Little Red Riding Hood.
The rich, red velvet cape coat and faceted beaded hat are a stark contrast to the dead, wintery
landscape which also served as inspiration for the chosen outfit. This ensemble conjures up a sense of magic and myth as sparkly turbans are usually reserved for the mystical while the long red coat teeters on ecclesiastical garb. Under all of this plushness a racy outfit is revealed. The suggestive outfit is symbolic of what lies beneath the cloaks of fairytales and clergy.
