Celebrities are flaunting their dark sides by embracing the Romantic Goth look plucked straight off the catwalk at Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent autumn winter 12 shows (to name just a few); proving that this look is both super wearable and flattering.
Vampy, bold and definitely sultry we’ve picked our favourite looks for you to try. Smoky blacks, rusty reds and wine-hued purples rule the colour palette of these beauty-forward celebrities.
Jennifer stepped out in September with a more mature, adventurous look, a stark contrast to her usual girl-next-door style. Definitely less Katniss Everdeen and more MockingJay if you ask us (but we’re Hunger Games fanatics). She’s opted for subtle smoky eyes and only a slick of mascara, leaving her lips to do the talking with a deep purple shade.
Flawless skin, contoured cheek bones and nude lips set the perfect base for Richie’s intense smoky eye. This look would have been a little too much if she’d opted for pink cheeks or bright lips. To perfect the under eye use a defined brush, wet the tip and sweep a black shadow underneath the lower lash line before smudging with your pinkie finger.
A matte, deep red lip when matched with a light dusting of silver on the eyes gives an easy-to-wear day option of the Romantic Goth look.
She lures Bond in with her devilishly good looks and she’s captivated us too. Defying all make-up conventions and choosing bold lips and sooty, midnight eyes, Berenice manages to look classically glamorous rather than clown-like. Jealous, us? Well maybe just a little...
With her supermodel good looks and striking white hair Kirsten McMenamy is hard to miss in a crowd. Chalky white skin makes her look ethereal whereas her brooding smoky eyes make her seem mysterious. Juxtaposition at it’s finest.
Kristen is back on our beauty radar. The starlet rocked gothic make-up at her latest premiere of On The Road, opting for deep red lips and smoky brown eyes. A striking contrast to her dressed down, casual, day-style.

Rita’s burgundy lip complements her olive skin tone and a hint of gold glitter beneath her lower lash line paired with lashings of mascara gives this look a playful finish.
