    i like those long black dress. her nude make-up makes her outfit very sophistickated))) so she does not look like vampire!

    The bag ruins the woman’s outfit completely. The men are almost perfect.

    ha – love the title – creatures of the night reign. Love her bag! nice that the only real color is peeking out of the jacket – this is one of my alltime favorite shots as the personalities all come through separately and as a total – GREAT PIECE

    I’m more into colours these days so I prefer the guy in the middle…love his shirt ; sometimes it’s hard to find a nice shirt with detail for a guy…

    Have you also seen his bracelet ?
    Normally I don’t like gold on guys ; but he wears is off with flair (looks like he really wanted it to show it to us, no ?)

    jjajajaja, I loved the title, jajajaja
    Because they are stylish of course but they do look like a family of blood drinkers. I guess it’s an optical effect of the dark clothes and how thin they are, but something makes them look unhumanly tall and misterious.
    Did they attack you?

    The woman is dressed in some sort of evening wear,the man in the middle has gathered interesting pieces of clothes. I don´t have anything to comment of the third person.

    I love the details here- the small bit of gold on the man on the right’s collar, and the way the woman is holding onto the man in the center… The way they are all standing, I think that perhaps they were very wary of having this photo taken…

      They could be metal collar tips – often done with western wear – don’t know anything about the history or purpose – they may be simply decorative.

    This is wonderful. I was wondering when you’d find beautiful vampires… A perfect expression of the budding depression of the wealthy west. I love the way her skirt drapes around her leg like a curtain, but the master of the look is in the whole bodily expression of the guy in the middle. Beautifully captured, Sart!

    Before “The Rules” are invoked I have to say that I like the plaid and plaid here. The guy on the right I’ll just say is an example of youth being the best accessory, not that that is always true by any means.

    I think images like this are what makes your blog, inspiring, for lack of a less pretentious word… Not because of a piece of clothing or a photo of the latest trend, but because in this image what really comes through is an attitude. When I look at this I think not of how could I take this shirt or that dress and use it but more if I were to dress this woman how would I do it and retain the sense of dark elegance, or the strong personality yet impression of awkwardness of the guy in the middle (body language here is amazing) and the guy on the right makes me think immediately of Nick Cave, and his look, to me, reflects a sort of nineties disaffeceted youth but done very clean and austere, perhaps a sign of times to come? This, although not my favourite photo, is why I come to your blog everyday.

    I love the way they wear the look! The guy on the far right particularly stands out. The shoes are kinda harsh looking and all straps contribute to a ‘goth’-ish image but the slim simple silhouette, block colour and most of all his foppish hair make is sophisticated. What a brilliant group of people… such class.

    I see possibility bookended by two classic looks. Food for thought. I’m not sure what I think of the full-sized folk, but the little red man in the upper corner is definitely making a man statement.

    Stunning! I am particularly impressed with the way I dislike most of the individual items that I can pick out on Mr. Middle, but love the combination. That is layering finesse, right there. I also love the way every aspect of the lady’s styling has such character to it. Gorgeous! And the Mona Lisa smile, on top of all that!
    I also like the group posture :D

    I love the vintage Persol sunglasses. The man is the middle has the right attitude to pull them off. We’ve tried to put a few guys in them. But they have never worked as well as they do on him.

    The sunglasses as a direct juxtaposition to the pattern, color and texture of the center man’s whole ensemble gives him the most palpable plaintive sense of collection.

    They look like they mean business. The two on the sides look like the middle ones bodyguards. Don’t mess with the one on the right (abnormally long reach.) And the one on the left seems like she’d be able to destroy you with her mind, or shoot lasers out of her eyes. Altogether a successful look for the one in the middle.

    agree with the above, the guy on the right side looks like he has big feet.. but he looks fashionable, way much better than those in 90210.

    I m always fond of black and the middle man complete the whole composition of the stylish pic !

    I know this seems weird, but they all seem so unapproachable. Something about their stance, their clothes screams “don’t talk to me”. That’s fine with me, though.
