Tim Burton's Fashion In New Harper's Bazaar Spread

Tim Burton is bringing his quirky, gothic touch to the pages of Harper's Bazaar. In a new fashion spread, he is pictured along with models posing in fashions inspired by his films like "The Nightmare Before Christmas," "Edward Scissorhands," and "Corpse Bride." In the new spread, which was shot in anticipation of his upcoming retrospective at New York's Musem of Modern Art, Burton reimagines fall fashions with a dark twist.
