5 Celebrities Who Went Goth - Part I

by Anna Stirling on March 15, 2019

Gothic outfits, when talked about in reference to Gothic Glam Fashion Style, usually feature laced dresses of a darker shade, bondage platform boots and matching accessories like a scarf, laced gloves, meticulously crafted necklaces and typically a darker shade of makeup. A more aggressive Gothic Look may feature tattoos, piercings, earrings, and other accessories depicting the symbols of the dark world. Whatever you wear, it takes a lot of heart and a bit of creativity to perfect the art of dressing up like a Goth! Here are 5 celebrities who have mastered that very art, and the Gothic world newbies and pros alike, could learn a thing or two from their fashion style. These people are legends in the world of Gothic Fashion and are always a source of immense inspiration.

Evan Rachel Wood

Evan Rachel Wood (born September 7, 1987) is an American actress, model, and musician. Born in Raleigh, North Carolina, she began acting in the 1990s, appearing in several television series, including American Gothic (1995–96) and Once and Again (1999–2002). Wood made her debut as a leading film actress at the age of eleven in Digging to China (1998) and garnered acclaim for her Golden Globe-nominated role as the troubled teenager Tracy Freeland in the teen drama film Thirteen (2003). She even got Marilyn Mason to put an engagement ring on her finger (they only got engaged, never married).

Christina Ricci

Born in 1980 in Santa Monica, California, Christina Ricci is considered by many as an outspoken child-teen starlet of the 1990s. Her being the youngest of her four siblings may be a reason for it. She is of Italian, Irish, and Scots-Irish descent. Known for her roles in Casper (1995), Black Snake Moan (2006) and Speed Race (2008), it was her role in The Addams Family (1991), where she played the character of Wednesday Addams which still reverberates with many Gothic Fans. This is one of my favourite:

Margaret: [Questioning the absence of a Halloween costume] What are you, darling? Where's your costume?

Wednesday: This is my costume. I'm a homicidal maniac. They look just like everybody else.


As Johnny Louis (WENN) pointed out correctly, Adult film stars are basically Suicide Girls gone bad, hence their innate alternative appeal. Victoria’s Secret model turned extremely hard-core adult film star, Belladonna is the porn star of choice for the horny Goth. Surprisingly, she is not the only one the list!

Angelina Jolie

This name requires no introduction. Angelina may now be living a quiet, seemingly vanilla A-List life, but her wild past and tattoo collection makes her the ultimate Goth hottie.

Sasha Grey

Sasha Grey is an American actress, model, musician, writer and former adult film actress (We promised, Belladonna isn’t the only one on this list). She first made her name in mainstream media after appearing on several popular television programs and in pop culture magazines, examining her willingness to enter the world of hard-core porn at a young age. Born on March 14, 1988 in North Highlands, California, Sasha, is a former member of aTelecine, an industrial music band.
