NOIRVEMBER Day 9 – Film Noir Fashion Photoshoots

Noirvember Day 9Another day, another Noirvember post! Let me give you a little spoiler of the things to come later this month. Apart from movies, I am going to write about inspirations behind film noir and inspirations from film noir. I already talked a bit about the sound of film noir, but today I want to focus on the look of film noir.

A Dame to Kill For

Because film noir has such a strong visual style associated with clear emotions, it provides inspiration to fashion designers, photographers & other artists to this day! This is why today, I would like to give you a list of film noir-inspired photo shoots that I have already posted about in the past!

Photo shoot with Anksfoto


The photo shoot with Anks took place a year ago – it was a birthday present. It was my first time as a model in front of a camera. In retrospect – I could have prepared myself better. For instance, I could have not done it the day after my birthday party 🙂 But I come back to it with great sentiment – Anks has a gift for taking pictures, I always find something interesting in her photos, something I’ve never seen in myself before.

Photo shoot with Hell Foto


Marta and I agreed on the photo shoot quite spontaneously – one day I came by her place with a few clothes and a bag of make up and we shot the photos at her apartment. It was my first photo shoot in which I consciously wanted to refer to a specific style – in this case the theme was femme fatale.


Marta has a fantastic approach to models – she immediately handed me a glass of port “because it has a photogenic colour!”. I admit it helped also to relax in front of the camera 🙂

A couple of days alter Women Alternative’s fanpage announced a competition for the cover of their calendar so I immediately informed Marta who submitted one of the pictures from this photo shoot. I was Lola Noir’s double debut – not only was it the first time I used that pseudonym, but also it was the first time I took part in a competition as a model. I didn’t win, but the number of votes cast for my photo (over 160, which gave me the 9th place for over 40 submissions!) has truly surprised and touched me – in that respect I surpassed admired by me burlesque performers such as Pin Up Candy or Kitty Van Purr.  Participation in this contest was very flattering and encouraged me to develop my modeling activities – more on that soon 🙂
