It can't be easy for a Victoria's Secret Angel — known for her bubbly demeanor and wholesome sexuality — to experiment with a slightly darker style. Of the 16 current Angels, it's Behati Prinsloo who's the edgiest, and at once, perhaps the most approachable. Since she and tatted-up rocker Adam Levine tied the knot last July, Prinsloo's own wardrobe has toughened up to include studded chokers and '90s-inspired slip dresses, and yes, even matching tattoos with her man. Then, by day, she poses in bubblegum-hued bras for the largest lingerie giant in the world. The dichotomy works for her, somehow.

Since Prinsloo began working with Zoe Kravitz's stylist, Andrew Mukamal, late last year, her formalwear has veered only more goth. At last night's Fragrance Foundation Awards in New York, we saw this firsthand: Wearing a sleek J. Mendel gown, Prinsloo put her left leg on full display, though cloaked in a witchy, sheer shroud. The dress's neckline is worth noting, too, with its floral silk embellishment and simple corset-like tie. Finally, we'd be remiss if we didn't acknowledge her neutral beauty palette and loose hair — the perfect, Angel-approved pairing for an otherwise dark ensemble.

Now, might black lipstick be next?
