What a great neckline. The cut and the way she wears the dress prevent it from being too prissy…which light-colored lace so frequently is. Love the shoes, too, and her natural-looking hair. Stephanie

She is a vision.

The lace of the dress is amazing! Could also work as a just-a-little-bit-romantic wedding dress in a civil marriage with only a few best friends around :-)

isn’t she a model too? She looks lovely with the dress and the shoes are beautiful too…maybe too bride-white for mee..

OMG love it!! I want that dress it’s so feminine and romantic :)
November 18, 2008 at 1:02 pm
Very elegant! The only thing I’d change is for the loops holding the sash to be more delicate. But gorgeous, all the same.
November 18, 2008 at 1:04 pm
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I’m usually not a fan of lace, but what a way to work it!
November 18, 2008 at 1:46 pm
The most beautiful wedding dress I have ever seen. Perfect.

November 18, 2008 at 2:40 pm
Yes…. before another “she is not a real person…” Astrid (a former full time model, now a photographer -like our dear sart) was in Rio working as a Vogue´s (style.com) blogger.
Not a brazilian, but a Puerto Rican (with a more glamorous job than yours.. but a working girl anyway)
PD/ask Scott how easy is to “work abroad, and look good…”
November 18, 2008 at 2:58 pm
Who designed the dress? Does anyone have a link? It’s gorgeous! Ce magnifique!
November 18, 2008 at 3:06 pm
Sart, will you please tell people that you don’t necessarily post images that are from RIGHT NOW – I’m so sick of hearing people try to call you out on “This is more spring than fall”, or saying, “God, she must be FREEZING, it’s cold in ny right now” Just simply put a small note with the date it was taken…that would solve the problem.

November 18, 2008 at 3:18 pm
I too love this dress and agree that she is beautiful BUTi dont think she adds anything to this dress, style wise… its just a lovely piece that even someone lacking any style at all could pick out and put on and look absolutely ravishing ini prefer seeing unique, cleverly styled outfits on the sartorialist
November 18, 2008 at 4:02 pm
What a beautiful dress! Those shoes really got my attention too!
November 18, 2008 at 4:11 pm
wow, the lace on this dress is wonderful and I love the double wrap of the tie.
November 18, 2008 at 4:15 pm
anybody else see the Office? Astrid!
November 18, 2008 at 4:31 pm
i LOVE the shoes as well!
November 18, 2008 at 4:33 pm
That dress would make a beautiful warm-weather wedding dress…beautiful shot with the greenery of the tree in the background…

This lady is GORGEOUS and that dress is officially COVETED. Sooo pretty!

I am off to Rio.
the fabric and the dress are wonderful and such a pretty color on her
The shoes are to die for
November 18, 2008 at 5:40 pm
What a fabulous face………..The dress is beautiful, but her face takes the spotlight!!!!
She has the face of an angel!!!!
November 18, 2008 at 5:54 pm
She’s really beautiful and all, but if she isn’t the bride I’m not into this. The shoes are so predictable and I don’t go for the purse with the dress. There is nothing wonderfully unexpected here and that makes it disappointing to me. To be memorable, there needs to be something a little “off”. And speaking for myself, I don’t care who she is.
November 18, 2008 at 6:09 pm
My favorite in a long time — beautiful photo. Thank you!
November 18, 2008 at 6:33 pm
I love Astrid Munoz, and this photo is a vision. But the [only, or] best photos of Rio style are of models currently in Rio for the recent fashion shows. I guess there are only so many non-thonged girls to photograph.

Pretty, but there is something about lace which always strikes me as a bit precious. Not sure what exactly, but this is a good example of it. Perhaps it’s the expensive-doll effect?
November 18, 2008 at 9:11 pm
Another Puerto Rican Beauty!
November 18, 2008 at 10:58 pm
It is indeed springtime south of the equator. Hooray for lovely colours and delicate fabrics again!

Beautiful Puerto Rican Princess!

I’m getting married in late April and would LOVE this dress. Any leads yet on where to seek it out?
November 19, 2008 at 12:52 pm
We all want more Rio pictures, please!!! We need it, long it!
Please post some more!
November 19, 2008 at 1:38 pm
Am I the only one that finds this look tacky? From the dress, to the shoes and bag. The look is saccharine and uninspired.
November 19, 2008 at 1:54 pm
THERE’S NO UGLY WOMEN IN RIO AT ALL!!! everyone is stunning!!!!!!!
November 19, 2008 at 2:26 pm
November 20, 2008 at 6:27 pm
the delicacy of the dress stands comfortably, though oddly, against her rich hot-blooded beauty. I would’ve thought something more bold, vibrant, loose-fitting, but yet the choice says a lot about her doesn’t it?
she looks like a story that is meant to be told.
November 20, 2008 at 8:23 pm
This dress is just perfect. And, for the ones who have doubts about it – yes, everyone is beautiful in Brazil. We are lovely, sorry to sound smug, but we can´t help it! :)’

Dear sart, it’s not fashion magazine that sells me fashion and make me broke, it’s you! I can’t live a day without your blog and i am always inspired. Thank you for bringing joy and thrill of fashion. P.S: I just recently purchased a lace dress. I don’t know if this picture was effective.But i know, for the leather jacket, you are the one to blame. :)

I very much love the shoes. Pink Satin, remind me so much of a pair of my great-grandmothers. All the women of my family wear the same size shoe, so I would put them on as a teenage girl and dream of when I could actually such a beautiful shoe in real life. Maybe when I get married!
November 25, 2008 at 6:56 am
Love her dress and her style…so romantic!
December 2, 2008 at 7:26 am
Gorgeous! I love her dress and her shoes!

This picture compelled me to make my first ever comment on this wonderful blog.
This woman is absolutely devastating.
December 5, 2008 at 5:12 am
That is a gorgeous dress on a stunning woman. Great capture!
December 5, 2008 at 8:28 pm
Love the shoes and camera, not sure about the rest.

The dress is from Argentina based designer Carla Ricciardi
