Can crime, dressed as fashion, be an art form? It seems so. American photographer Melanie Pullen created the High Fashion Crime series which illustrates real criminals in Los Angeles between 1912 and 1950. She tells the cruel stories to society from her own point of view, working with famous models, actresses and brands such as Prada, Chanel and Gucci. She recovers documentary archives and gives the high fashion taste to crimes that most people tend to be insensitive to.
