One of my favorite tear sheets we’ve ever posted to Haute Macabre nearly ten years ago in 2009: In Memory of The Late Mr. & Mrs. Comfort, a fabled published in the New Yorker Magazine, November 1995. Photographed by Richard Avedon featuring Nadja Auermann.
From the “I don’t know what’s going on here, but I like it” files: all signs point to this being a recent photoshoot for Financial Times magazine, suggesting that the prognostic practices of astrology, palm-reading, and other forms of divination are on-trend in terms of sartorial inspiration for 2019 (and I don’t mean to brag, […]

In the last few years, I’ve developed a deep adoration and fascination with Frida Kahlo. I’m very late to the party, but honestly, for most of my life I knew nothing of her other than being a pop culture icon, a face plastered on miscellaneous trinkets and tote bags. About two years ago, I finally […]

Kate Moss by Paolo Roversi for W Magazine, Spring 2015 Styled by Edward Enninful
Getting outfitted to meet one’s maker is an intensely personal business, we can certainly do better than to begin and end with every mother’s insistence of a clean pair of underwear! If you are indeed to sup with the Grim Reaper before heading off into parts unknown, I think it better to leave a lasting […]
To be honest, I haven’t watched a single episode of the glorious baloney that is America’s Next Top Model since 2009, but they may have re-kindled my interest with a spooky horror story-themed, “Scared By Fierce” photo shoot in Episode 4 of Cycle 24. “Scared By Fierce”! I am screaming. With laughter. Is this seriously what […]
If there was ever a time that we, collectively, needed to see a new take on an old story, it is most definitely now. Which of course begs the question, “Is there ever a bad time to view an old tale through a different lens?” Of course not. But if you haven’t yet begun the work […]
The true test of an advertising campaign is to take a product you KNOW you don’t like, and make you love it anyway. Well played, Gucci. Well played.

Ode to Lucifer, a personal project by photographer Julius Bramato.
Tim Walker pays homage to Hieronymus Bosch in his incredible new editorial for Love Magazine’s Spring 2016 issue. If you’re not familiar with Bosch and his incredible art, treat yourself to the enormous tome of his complete works, which has been on my list of Books To Add To My Library for ages. Might be […]
Vogue Italia December 2015 is a holiday gift to us all: the entire issue was photographed by Haute Macabre muse Tim Walker, including this Edward Gorey inspired editorial, Rebel Riders. I suddenly have the overwhelming urge to paint my face white and listen to the first Dresden Dolls album on repeat.
Never Let Me Go Photographed by Nicolas Guerin for Fiasco Magazine 2011
Blogger Paola Mathé has been making some waves on social media for her shoot featuring a group of her friends in the NY subway system dressed as superheroes of her own design. Her inspiration for the project came from asking ‘What If?”- in this case, “what if there was a super hero squad where all […]

Natural Selection, shot by Emma Summerton fow W. Magazine. Why yes, you can shoot a Gawth-as-Fuck spread with only black models. (Sadly, the rest of the spread was less macabre).
Un Conte D’hiver, shot by Mark Segal for Vogue Paris, Oct 2006
It’s been quite a while since we last checked in with Spanish photographer Eugenio Recuenco, during which he has been focusing on a stunning series of fairytale-inspired fashion shoots. I’m thinking it was worth the wait.
