Goth Girls Are Back and This Is the Fashion Leader

Fashion loves a rebel, and they've certainly found one in SoKo. A French fashion rebel? Even better. A French fashion rebel who is the ex-girlfriend of Kristen Stewart and in a new movie alongside Lily-Rose Depp? Well, now we're seriously talking.

SoKo, an actress and singer, is currently being courted by some of the biggest brands in the business, namely Gucci. And, alongside her talents, her aesthetic really chimes with the forthcoming fashion mood. A/W 16's outlook is distinctly gothic and fiercely individual, two things SoKo appears to provide by the effortless bucketload. With her often-messy black-crow hair, smudges of red eye shadow and perma-glare, it's her beauty regimen that also has us interested—no wonder our friends over at Byrdie UK are also charting SoKo's rule-breaking look.

So during the recent round of shows at the very high profile Haute Couture Fashion Week, SoKo became a prominent fixture. She's partied alongside the other It girls of the moment—from Bella Hadid to Kate Moss—and has been notching up some pretty awesome looks along the way. Most of all, though, SoKo looks like she's having a riot doing it. Who else would hit the Cannes Film Festival (in blazing hot sunshine) wearing a Victoriana-style black lace dress with tartan pop-socks, mega-platforms and a grin from ear to ear?

Scroll through the gallery to see some of our favourite SoKo looks—and be sure to keep her on your radar for nailing autumn/winter's gothic trend.
