Dark Romanticism

It seems as if some version of the Gothic look pops up on the runways every year. This time around it's summed up perfectly by the kohl-eyed femmes at Givenchy. I fall for it every time. It must be a residual effect from reading too many Anne Rice novels in high school. Is anyone else a little too excited for the Twilight movie? Some obsessions never die... fortunately.
