nice portrait shot..the first one. Love whole body shot too. I like the bracelet, and the length of the wool pant is nice. Her hair is awesome!

very beautiful coat
I love how this look is a combination of a chic business woman and an old-world senior citizen. The mix is flawless, with a sort of play on short pants and hour slippers, but a fabulous heathered pant and patterned shoes. i LOVE her cuff, talk about an accessory making an outfit…and i love her hair, it somehow fits the outfit perfectly.

love the leopard print and colorful bangle accents on the rest of her neutral ensemble. and her smile is infectious!
January 14, 2009 at 9:22 am
That grey stocking peaking out from the flannel trousers, superb. The bracelet adds nice color.

Her bracelet, too! I love that unexpected addition.
She’s a gorgeous presence, more than anything else.

She has a lovely smile, and I admire her courage to venture out sans a trace of makeup. Alas, the hair is Working Girl circa 1988. Nice cuff on her left arm but for the life of me I can’t determine the whereabouts of her lower right arm. She’s obviously holding a package in her right hand, but what happened between that hand and her elbow?

This lady is beautiful, her smile with her whole face, eyes and perfect teeth is positively life-enhancing.
January 14, 2009 at 10:05 am
Wow. Look at her style! Clear, gentle, elegant. And the bangle: just magic.
Una grande lezione di stile.

She always looks really good. 90% of it is her smile.
January 14, 2009 at 10:22 am
… is everything
January 14, 2009 at 10:49 am
not only that smile!that hair! she looks so arty!
January 14, 2009 at 10:51 am
oooo, so fresh, effortless & inviting! i think i want to be friends with this woman.
January 14, 2009 at 10:52 am
I LOVE these photographs. There are too many reasons why it’s so good – the hair contrasting the jacket, the form of the jacket.. Then the shoes that just pop… I don’t know how the Euros do it so much better than, well me at least.
January 14, 2009 at 10:55 am
Pulling a Garance? Hehehe… I like it
January 14, 2009 at 11:04 am
That smile, that hair, these shoes !!!
January 14, 2009 at 11:44 am
i love everything about her… everything…

Sander! I mean, Sart, the thing Sander did with that soldier’s sleeve–to visually allude to amputation…
I am sure you know what Sanser picture I am referring to.
Out of place with such angel of mercy, but still. How powerful an influence Sander must be on you!

Lovely Maria Cristina! always chic!
January 14, 2009 at 1:10 pm
i want that bracelet!! not crazy about the hair, but overall a very charming, artsy look =)
January 14, 2009 at 1:15 pm
She looks so cozy. Probably a good friend. Hugs to the smiling girl!
January 14, 2009 at 1:28 pm
Her again. I love her hair, but I don’t know why.
January 14, 2009 at 1:44 pm
Beautiful hair, i think.
January 14, 2009 at 1:46 pm
I like everything she is wearing and her choice to wear them together. Love her hair and smile.
January 14, 2009 at 1:53 pm
her bracelet is so pretty, it makes the outfit!
January 14, 2009 at 2:55 pm
Diggin’ the coat, bracelet and smile. Wonderful combination. Nothing is better than a lovely smile.
January 14, 2009 at 3:30 pm
i love the shot of just her face it looks so beautiful, you can really tell that this lady is the type of person who is always smiling. i also love her outfit as a whole… i want her bracelet badly!
January 14, 2009 at 3:39 pm
beautiful shot! i love the “one flew over the cookoo” hair mixed with the short slacks, that beautiful red cuff, and of course the shoes!! crazy grandma meets business chic.

she’s fabulous, she reminds me of my mother, both utterly fabulous people :)

Who is she? I see her at the shows all the time.

I LIKE HER UNKEPT HAIR. IT CREATES A GOOD JUXTAPOSITION FROM HER PERFECTLY TAILORED ATTIRE.
January 14, 2009 at 5:11 pm
She´s very sweet, i like her ballerinas.
January 14, 2009 at 6:06 pm
January 14, 2009 at 6:31 pm
Perfect blend of elegance and casualness! The blues and grays in this photo are beautifully austere. The splash of warm yellow added by her hair makes it sublime.
January 14, 2009 at 6:32 pm
Ah! Another woman with that lovely Gibson Girl bouffant! I must learn how to do this with my hair. Next time you run into that woman in NY, ask her for a tutorial!
January 14, 2009 at 7:00 pm
C’est magnifique…un peu Yves Saint Laurent chic…j’adore
January 14, 2009 at 7:28 pm
I LOVE her hair. Its so original and creative…no one else could make it look so good. I recognize her from before, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen what’s going on in the back? How does she “tie” it up or pull it back?
January 14, 2009 at 8:04 pm
i love her leopard skimmers, jeeze xx
January 14, 2009 at 8:35 pm
Your best photo ever!
January 14, 2009 at 10:10 pm
Wonderful shot the first one!
January 15, 2009 at 12:46 am
Shes stunning, the smile,the hair, the shapes of her coat and the length of her pants are very daring in my opinion. Reminds me of what Rei Kawakubo of Comme De Garcons would wear herself. Just beautiful. My favorite portrait to date.
January 15, 2009 at 1:05 am
love the hair
January 15, 2009 at 1:51 am
What a beautiful face!
January 15, 2009 at 2:18 am
If the photo was from the knees down and we didnt have her beautiful face to look at, I would swear it was a old lady on the bus. Many of the postings lately have that “too small – wrong size” look. This beauty can carry it off but we average humans would just look wrong.
January 15, 2009 at 4:02 am
She looks lovely — the simple clothes juxtaposed with interested cuts and quirky accessories are gorgeous!
And that smile!!! Bella!
January 15, 2009 at 4:37 am
Surprisingly, no one has said it, but for me the best part is the freckles. I love her hair too, but coming from a person with freckles (not as beautiful as hers) they really make the picture.
January 15, 2009 at 6:59 am
That smile pulls together the whole outfit — and her hair and makeup-less face make it seem so so much cooler, make her style seem innate. I always wish I felt comfortable going out into the world without makeup, with just a happy glow instead…
January 15, 2009 at 9:15 am
Adorable, the hair is extraordinary!
January 15, 2009 at 9:48 am
This beautiful young woman represents what my mother was talking about when I’d foolishly paint my adolescent face, homogenize myself into a rainbow of acceptable polo shirts and fry my hair straight (or curly, depending on the mood at school) in an attempt to blend in.
The gals out there with unusual features, who let their own unique spunk blossom on their faces and in their style, those are the ones that inherit the earth!
January 15, 2009 at 10:18 am
bracelet and her smile keep it young and make it work.
January 15, 2009 at 10:36 am
I’m with anon that the freckles make the photo!
January 15, 2009 at 11:03 am
The interesting thing is that while she is quite attactive and seems stylish, and has a lovely smile, I cannot really place an age on her. In my opinion she could be in her mid-20′s or her late-30′s. It is usally easier to pin down a person’s age via their face.
Nonetheless she seems to have an appealing sense of style, and me being a sucker for freckles I think that I’m smitten.
And I also find the size of the coat to be interesting and a contrast to the usual tailored look that most when go for.
January 15, 2009 at 11:58 am
Can’t get over the bracelet, well really all of it.
January 16, 2009 at 4:13 pm
She looks like an undercover angel.
It’s like she is trying to go undercover.
January 17, 2009 at 12:06 am
I love the shape and details of the coat! However, the length of the pants and the shoes bother me…but then again, I was never fond of leopard.
January 17, 2009 at 12:28 am
And those shoes!!! Love them!!!
January 17, 2009 at 6:57 pm
I feel like you’ve shot her before…
January 17, 2009 at 6:58 pm
I found it in your archives! July 9th 2007; I remember because the hair was so great.

She reminds me of Katharine Hepburn. Beautiful.
January 19, 2009 at 8:38 pm
This would be stunning if the jacket cut-off halfway up and she was wearing less trendy shoes.
January 21, 2009 at 12:42 pm
Look at her shoes!!!I love them!!
January 21, 2009 at 1:36 pm
That smile?!? How about that hair? Wow!
January 21, 2009 at 3:44 pm
Who is this woman, you have shot her two or three times before? Are you fast friends now? Does she work in fashion?
January 21, 2009 at 6:26 pm
It seems like if she didn’t belong to this world. A bit like Clara del Valle, of Isabel Allende’s novel. Her allure is something special.

Amazing hair :) was she photographed by you in feb 2008??
January 24, 2009 at 10:05 am
Love the freckles (coming from somebody with moles)
January 26, 2009 at 10:49 pm
ahha, so monet with the wisp of hair not doing much to cover that first smile. it just brings to mind the painting of his wife and son on a windy hill; her thin veil barely hiding her smile… and those freckles!
April 8, 2009 at 11:25 am
the bracelet looks like a killer
November 1, 2009 at 1:07 am
The hair! Why why? the bangle plus mismatching leopard shoes I'm not sold.. sorry.
