    Wow – this photograph is striking. There is so much I love about it: the strong arms, the sheer dress, the black piping and under garments, the similarly-echoed gladiators. So cool.

    I like the skirt portion of this dress more than bodice for some reason. I'd also like to see some movement..the lightweight fabric and flutter hem begs for it. But this seems like an appropriate outfit for Atlanta, where it's so very hot

    I love it. The contrast of her strong build and the soft dress, the fleshy tones of pink and brown combined with the black underthings, trim of the dress, her hair, the headphone cord. And the way that cord curls down to the bottom of the dress, like it's naturally part of the outfit. And I love the mimicked lines in her shoes and the seams in her dress, and then again in the background with the wall and the wood slats.

    I would love that dress in my own closet, but she rocks it better than I ever would!

    I love her blog too!

    This photograph hits me hard; it is invoking a lot of sentiments inside me that I cannot clearly verbalize.
    Her toned arms mirror her strength and her white nails radiate her purity. Her stance is rigid and solid, juxtaposed (or enhanced) by the flowy dress. The transluscence of the fabric shows that she open; to induce emotions as well as absorb any outside forces that come her way.

    This is the strongest image I've ever seen.

    Very nice looking woman, but the dress does not suit her. Something with a V-neckline would lengthen her neck and balance the arms, which look a bit weighty for a dress that diaphonous.

    If only the dress were a wee bit shorter on her. It compresses her, creating density that I am not sure I agree with. Otherwise this is original. I especially like that the armholes are not piped, appearing to just be cut and not finished at all.

    I agree with all the "delicate vs. strong" comments and I love the folds and lining in the skirt part of the dress.

    I think a sexy black slip would have worked wonders … because even with a rockin' bod, unless you're at a high fashion event, walking around in such a sheer dress without one would look odd.

    Ok. Thats really good. Very good version of sheer. She is totally not hiding, but totally not obvious either. Just modern and clean. Good that she is not wearing make up. It makes a nice counterpoint.

    I love this look, so soft. Even though the person has a masculine feel, the outfit makes them seem so feminine and gentle.

    Pretty awesome to see your old classmate grow up into a woman. Azede Pierre is an amazing artist/designer. Definitely look out for her in the future!

    Wow. The contrasts are beguiling and mesmerizing. The only thing I'd change is the alienating headphones. Not for aesthetic reasons, but for social ones.

    That incredibly lovely and feminine (best shade of) pink sheer dress with its perfect black piping, following the same lines in the black gladiator sandals, black sharply romantic lingerie, chalk white nail polish… and then the hairstyle, the headphones, the tough built of her figure, the look in her eyes, the background and the lighting…
    I am simply in love with this shot. Interesting, and beautiful, flawless!
