The Gloom Groom
Since we have already covered the “Dark Bride“, I figured we would do a segment for the Gothic groom– to- be. Upon doing research for the Goth-style of dress, I noticed that the men tend to have various styles of Goth, whether it was punk styled, a- la Adam Lambert of American Idol, or it’s more Renaissance related. A good example of Renaissance or Edwardian would be Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Prince Vlad, played by actor Gary Oldman. I found his Goth style of dress really fascinating, sort of a cross between an English aristocrat and a Cadillac- riding pimp of the 1970’s. Did they actually wear purple sunglasses during the 1800’s? Only in Hollywood. Below, are my Gothic style selections inspired by Alexander McQueen’s 2009 mens-wear line. Hope you Gothic Grooms like the mod version of Prince Vlad’s attire..
