One of my favorite things about the style of Dita Von Teese is the fact that she always adds a little edge to her glamour, and she also combines modern edge so her vintage-inspired looks never look like a period costume. When Triangl asked me to feature one of their bikinis, I was immediately drawn to this leather-look "New York Noir" piece! A bikini that looks like leather? Brilliant. When taking my photos you all know I love the artifice of it all, so I had a lot of fun creating a vixen femme fatale feel to this photoshoot. My inspirations were a mixture of the edge of Dita, the vintage pinup of Bettie Page, and the glamour of Jean Harlow. In keeping with the urban feel to a "New York" noir leather bikini, I skipped the beach and rather went for a location with both water and magnificent city views.
