    the lighting and composure is f—king amazing to top of all she wears the dress seductively but appropriate.

    What a stunner! I love the darkness of her eyes and the light on her face pushing her cheek bones up. Her strut is confident and model-esque. LBD is always a classic even in summer!

    although the focus should be on fashion, i find myself sometimes wondering whether you're more attracted to the form or the actual style. certainly they can't be entirely separated, but i'd like to see people who aren't necessarily personally physically "hot" but have great style.

    i'm uncertain whether, as in this case, the style is really the driving point (or whether it's just an attractive person with mildly good taste).

    Your picture captured her body language very well and I loved all the shadows.

    As far as her outfit, to me is safely boring. Her shoes were the best pick of that day.

    I'm sure that it's a hair or a strap but that dark line on her right shoulder keeps catching my eye. My first reaction is that it's where her arm is attached to her torso a la Barbie.

    I want her hair btw.

    that is such a good shot. Although a black top is an interesting choice to wear for the daytime, esp during summer…

    quick question. do you just take pictures of people randomly or do you ask the person for permission to take their photo first (and then they pose i suppose?)

    It's really interesting to see this pic here after seeing Garance's pics of the same girl. She looks completely different here. In Garance's pics her face looks much younger – more like a school girl's. Lovely contrast. I like both. The dress/sandals combo is smashing. People who are remarking on the knees: In all of the time I've spent in Italy I've seen very few athletic Italian women. In other words, very few have muscular legs/defined quads from running and cycling and the like such as do slim North Americans, and sporty Australians and northern Europeans. Her legs are simply slim but not toned; there is nothing wrong with her left knee..

    People who say mean stuff about her knees: seriously? Anorexic chicks or chicks who spent 3 hours at the gym every day are not sexy. Sorry. This is coming from a straight guy. Also, this awesomely hot lady is a good example of how only brown haired/brown eyed women can be truly beautiful. Sorry bottle blondies.

    Gorgeous gal in a gorgeous dress. What's "wrong" with her knee? It appears she has a hyperextension, in which the knee joint naturally goes back farther than normal, giving the leg a concave, rather than flat, line. I have it and it's only a problem in dance class.
