Sexiest Goths – Do Trent Reznor And Pauley Perette Get Your Vote? (PICTURES)

Lace, leather, dark lipstick and eyeliner make up the staples of many a goth’s wardrobe.

But who pulls it off the best? In honour of World Goth Day, we’ve put together a gallery of the sexiest goths ever.

Whether they’re dyed in the wool citizens of the night or just experimenting, we just can’t resist a bit of Kat Von D or NCIS's Pauley Perette and don’t even get us started on part-time goth Dita Von Teese...

And representing the boys, let’s hand it to Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, and of course the granddaddy of eyeliner, The Cure's Robert Smith.
