Gothic fashion is usually stereotyped as a dark, sometimes morbid, eroticized fashion and style of dress. Typical Gothic fashion includes black dyed hair and black clothes and both male and female goths wear dark eyeliner and dark fingernails. Styles are often inspired from the Elizabethans and Victorians.(Wikipedia)
This October, two magazines opted to have a fashion showdown across their pages. Vogue Italy and Flair magazine let every reader decide on whose Gothic fashion is the best.
The October issue of Vogue Italia features a sort of a black widow-harlequin look. The models were dressed in see-through black lace with diamond patters, chiffon and long evening gloves. They also used black balloons and grapes as accessories. One can clearly see that they have a sort of retro-modern, avant-garde, Gothic image.
On the other hand, Flair magazine had a set of pictures called "Gotica". The pictures are mostly black and white with splashes of color. A model is photographed with pale bare-chested men who are made up to look like zombies who seem to be battling for her soul. The backgrounds are eerie and sometimes ghostly, feels like you're in a horror movie.
