I found these on tfs, and was struck by how it was very dramatic and very stark at the same time, especially the first image.
Helps that the beautiful couture was worn by Clemence Poesy, whom I found captivating in the underrated "In Bruges".

I think it's a wonderful way of presenting couture, instead of the usual fairytale-type setting most people seem so found of.
