Maria Loks | V86 Winter 2013-2014 (Photography: Anthony Maule)

Maria Loks sprints to matrimony in the Winter 2013-2014 issue of V in a resort story photographed by Anthony Maule and styled by Patti Wilson. Titled “Cruise to the Altar,” the story eschews the soft-focus trappings of the institution and instead adopts a decidedly more speed metal approach. The video treatment for the editorial even goes so far as to use Metal Church’s “Beyond the Black” as its soundtrack. As for the bridal gown, Maria appears in sharp focus, evenly lit, wearing Burberry Prorsum — cue guitar solo!
