No Angel! See Karlie Kloss As You’ve Never Seen Her Before For V Magazine
The supermodel gets tied up in Comme des Garçons’ Blood and Roses collection…
Karlie Kloss has shed her Victoria’s Secret Angel wings and gone to the dark side for V Magazine Issue 94, which sees the 22-year-old supermodel don Comme des Garçons’ Blood and Roses collection, for a sexy shoot by Steven Klein.
Styled by Patti Wilson, Karlie appears in a fashion story titled ‘Big Red’, which sees her blonde bob exchanged for a black vampire-style widow’s peak.
Clad in a deep rouge high-shine cape with quilted hood, Swifty’s BFF looks every inch the twisted fairytale, later being tied up with layers of belts. Her face concealed behind a mask of plastic, Karlie is practically unrecognisable, showing her versatility as a model.
“Blood and Roses is the expression of a deeper significance of roses, typically happy and pretty,” says Rei Kawakuba, founder of Comme des Garçons. “Often in history the image of the rose was more connected with blood and wars, in relation to political conflict, religious strife, and power struggles, this is what was interesting to me this time.”
