Shot for the New Yorker in 1995 by the legendary Richard Avedon, this creepy shoot seems worthy of a concept for Americas Next Top Model. Featuring gorgeously style models that appear to have no idea that their loves are merely skeletons, Avedon creates many shots of sheer passion and romance. In agreement with WickedHalo, this shoot has a striking resemblance to the Corpse Bride, but with a ‘Corpse Groom.’ As creepy as these decomposed grooms seem, you can’t help but notice the beauty in each shot, and have a hard time looking away from the photos, no matter how gruesome the concept may be. Each shot brings the couple into a different scene, of love or catastrophe. There’s even a sex scene, which could perhaps be followed by the family portrait with the child as a very creepy doll, even more so than the skeleton. A few of the shots seem straight from a horror movie, but the concept overall would do Tim Burton proud.
