VIRGINIA CITY, Nev. -- Virginia City was the focus of haute couture Sunday. Local photographer Franz Szony spent the day shooting high fashion on the Comstock.
It is part of a series of advertisements that will appear in the international fashion magazine Cielo.
Actress Bitsie Tulloch of "Grimm" modeled one-of-a-kind gowns in several locations in the historic town. The crew said it is the perfect backdrop to go with "Grimm's" supernatural undertones.
"When they approached me about this, they wanted to come to
Reno and I said how about Virginia City," commented Szony. "If you want something supernatural, you want something old, and, really, this entire place is like a movie set. So it's a beautiful backdrop and it has incredible history. The people here have been incredibly accommodating, and we feel right at home, and it's the perfect backdrop."
The photos will appear in Cielo this summer.
