Very Theda Bara!
PS, just wondering if the model is Tilda Swinton with a dark wig?
LOVE that last photo….
And Yve, it is Tilda Swinton
also, yve, she’s meant to emulate the Marchesa, Luisa Casati =)
Who I think Theda Bara was emulating…
You guys have been full of win lately. This really just makes me desire a costume drama or something about the woman, preferably with an 80′s soundtrack. I hear they do that kind of thing these days.
I see that it’s Tilda Swinton, but the photos remind me of Siouxsie. (Which is a good thing.)
I love the last photo most. It’s as if Sarah Berhardt had her portrait done by Edward Gorey.
I agree about the Edward Gorey reference. That is totally what I thought about when seeing the hair and expression and pose.
Excellent photos. Facially very much like Marchesa Casati herself, but it irked me a little that they didn’t do her henna’d orange hair… I’ll just imagine it’s black and white.
