Brokedown Palace.

"A wispy blonde takes a break from the world - and a wrong turn into an abandoned building 
in the City Hall area of downtown Manhattan - but she's tough enough to face it alone. 
Armed with tough accessories and bad-girl eyeliner, Alexandra Richards is a goth warrior strutting her stuff against a decaying background. Stylist Elle Werlin brings out the best in Richards' romantic, edgy style with Louis Vuitton, Missoni, Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier 
and more. Shot by Nicholas Routzen, the strong and sexy modern girl takes power and beauty to an unapologetic new level." 
- Kelley Hoffmann.

Everything about this photoshoot has me completely smitten.
Alexandra Richards, the flirty and ever-so-gorgeous styling, the destructive location, really... just everything.
I'm pretty sure this is now my new favourite.
It makes me want to be in this little fairytale goth warrior world.
