    Is it the vantage point? Is it the lighting? She certainly has all the possibilities, for sure.

    Nice, soft look. The length of the dress and the shoes are youthful. The simplicity of her hair and makeup exude a confident maturity.
    Refreshing to look at.

    I hope that my daughter will embrace this type of tastefulness.

    Oh, what a great set up for this picture! The first thing I noticed was her pearl lariat, an old-fashioned accessory in this modern mix. I bet she is cool in that dress and Florence can be boiling in the summer but she better watch that open bag; pickpockets are rampant there. That's not a slap, it's the truth.

    Being stylish…

    Stylish – having elegance or taste or refinement in manners or dress; "a little less posh but every bit as stylish as Lord Peter Wimsey"; "the stylish resort of Gstadd"

    Styleless, unstylish – lacking in style or elegance; "a styleless way of dressing"; "expensive but styleless country tweeds"; "wearing unstylish clothes".

    Maybe, I just like her dress and she is a pretty girl in Florence, Italy after all.

    She would be still be pretty in an old pair of jeans and a tee-shirt.

    Because she has style.

    This is a gorgeous shot and the girl looks fabulous. It's relaxed, she's relaxed, which creates the same feeling in the viewer. A wonderful antidote to the uptight looks of the governor's island shots (not a criticism of the photos themselves, which are lovely, just on the looks. Glad they've gone for another year. (I can see it's a fun weekend for the participants – something beautifully communicated by the images – but I find the looks really appalling, esp. the two-tone shoes!)

    So many young girls think that they will look older if they dress like Britney Spears or Lindsey Lohan, i.e., trashy/slutty. This girl shows that she can dress simply, comfortably and with class, making her look much older and more sophisticated without looking like a tramp. Bravo to her.
    The only thing is that she is setting herself up for foot problems later in life if she wears shoes like that too often. It is not very fashionable to limp because of a bunion.

    The shoes are surprisingly Jessica Simpson and the best part are the back, a zipper from the base of the heel to the ankle, they are surprisingly comfortable.

    Lovely 'transitional' look: not too young, not too old, just right for her age and stage, I'd say. Look, we're talking Italy here…

    Beautiful coloring: the taupe, the shell, the brown. Sophisticated, without being too precious. I adore the shirtdress, the knotted necklace the largish bag.

    Lovely young women in a dress that I wish I owned. Like her style, accessories, hair, and even the shoes (I'm no big fan of high heels, much less in Firenze, but I'll give in on this one.) Past all that, fabulous photo in elegant light – or elegant photo in fabulous light.

    There is something fantastic about those shoes, not to mention the gorgeous background…but really, is all the bashing of high schoolers in general necessary, commenters? We are not all idiots who idolise Lindsay Lohan and would like to audition for a 'Girls Gone Wild' video, even if this is the way teens are depicted by the media.

    shoes are definitely Zara, i have them!

    i am a little surprised by all the comments about "amazing style".. I think she looks great and oozes confidence but this is a very European look, i wore something similar in Dublin yesterday .. it would not be considered high fashion here.
    (not to take away from the fact that this girl looks great though)

    The Dress is from ZARA but the shoes although they look like a pair they have in blue and pink are NOT from ZARA. I think the most interesting thing about ZARA clothes is that a lot of the pieces you have to see them on to really appreciate them. If you have the vision for yourself than you will never leave the store empty handed and unhappy.

    Have the shoes, but they're BCBG.
    The straps are all elastic so they're really comfortable especially because i have narrow feet.

    Nobody seemed to notice the little touches like the rolled sleeve and the watch. Really pulled the look together and showed her personality.
