Karlie Kloss is sporting an unusual new look in the latest issue of V Magazine, and it is fraught with symbolism.

The supermodel was styled in the Comme des Garçons Blood and Roses collection, which, as photographer Rei Kawakubo explains in the mag, is a darker take on what roses usually signify.

"Blood and Roses is the expression of a deeper significance of roses, typically happy and pretty," Kawakubo said. "Often in history the image of the rose was more connected with blood and wars, in relation to political conflict, religious strife and power struggles. This is what was interesting to me this time."

In the images, Kloss has sort of a nightmarish Little Red Riding Hood thing going on, but it's her androgynous look that made us look twice to make sure that it was really the former Victoria's Secret Angel under those heavy dark sideburns.
