And so the lion fell in love with the lamb” -Edward Cullen-

The obsession with all things Twilight and Robert Pattinson extended to the catwalks last A/W10 season. The vamp look of the films influenced fashion and makeup trends a-like with pale skin and dark lips leading the beauty trends on the catwalks around the world. It wasn’t just Twilight that designers looked to for their ‘vamp’ inspiration; old-school vampire film looks with long velvet gowns were plentiful in collections.

A/W10 shows saw head to toe dark styles; black lace, velvet, jackets in deep maroon, all featuring. Alexander Wang focused on deep red dresses accented in lace – evoking the vampire look of old– in his A/W10 show.  Raybans (a la Edward) and Converse (a la Bella) have all seen a revival in the fashion stakes due to their featuring in the wardrobes of the Twilight cast both on-screen and off-screen.
