love the black white and grey with a colorful scarf to add. just don’t love the head scarf tied that way. not flattering. she has great style.

it’s always a pleasure to see photos of what i consider “normal people” wearing everyday clothes. i tire of what i consider “lunatics” who wear silly outfits just to get attention. that’s just my opinion…

Who doesn’t want to be THIS GIRL!
Youth and a simple understanding of fashion and color.
I wish I could see the whole outfit.
I like the shock of pattern and color. True wisdom!
I love her mousy grin — the nonchalance of her pose. This is how a natural portrait should look. And her clothes make her look comfortable and feel natural. The scarf on the head is perfect.

Neutrals and scarf colors are indeed lovely, as is her face. But the way the scarf is tied is unflattering to her, and with a wrinkled shirt she seems ready to scrub a floor or strip paint off furniture. Ready to scrub a floor is fine–if that’s what she intends, but for other activities, I’d suggest improvising other modes of tying the scarf.

She’s obviously cute. Not sure I like the head scarf. Maybe it’s the way it’s tied.
October 14, 2008 at 10:13 am
she looks like mel c of the spice girls
October 14, 2008 at 10:16 am
Wow. She looks fantastic.
October 14, 2008 at 10:17 am
I love her scarf this way. I don’t know if I would love it on just anyone but she carries it with ease because the rest of her outfit is understated but well-fitting (i’m crazy about the pleated pant). It’s a perfect splash of color.

She looks like one of the former Spice Girls…think it was Sporty Spice?
October 14, 2008 at 10:38 am
She is so… French!
October 14, 2008 at 10:55 am
WOW i’m in love. This is a wonderful shot, but what a beauty she is. PS. She dresses really beautiful too.
lovely colorfull accent!
October 14, 2008 at 10:56 am
Was this woman as beautiful as she looks in this photograph?
October 14, 2008 at 10:58 am
I love the way the simplicity of her look is contrasted with colours that are so alive on the head scarf.
October 14, 2008 at 11:26 am
“I fell in love with the first cute girl that I met”
how is she doing that the scarf looks no more than amazing the way she put it?
I like the use of color, but I don’t like the way the head scarf is tied. It’s too Rosy the Riviter and it doesn’t really go with the rest of the outfit. It’s like she’s grandpa from the neck down and grandma from the neck up. I like the grandpa look, but not with the head scarf. Maybe with the same scarf tied at the neck to give a splash of color?

Cinderella before she gets ready for the ball, with her hopeful smile cutting through; damn her wicked step sisters! Is that a mens’ crew neck tee? I work with a girl that wears them under a nicely cut blazer with the sleeves pushed up and they look great. Simple and practical–of course I love it.
October 14, 2008 at 11:46 am
Very simple… very nice… magnifique!
October 14, 2008 at 11:50 am
This woman’s fresh, easy elegance is inspiring. Thanks Sart!
October 14, 2008 at 11:51 am
hmm…i can’t decide on this. she looks gorgeous and comfortable, but almost like she’s off to wash the windows (except for the chunky bracelet) – one of the few pics that i can’t decide if i like or dislike.
October 14, 2008 at 11:58 am
white t-shirts are so sexy.
October 14, 2008 at 2:51 pm
I do love this basic outfit ; the head-scarf gives it a more personal touch…She reminds me of someone, a combination of Mel C and a Dutch actress … she has a lovely natural face ..

so charming and cute
October 14, 2008 at 3:36 pm
Her smile is the best accessory on the whole outfit–dig the scarf, too!

I have always wanted to wear a scarf like that. I just can never get it tied right. Or perhaps I’m using scarves of the wrong size.
She wears this well. So lovely.
October 14, 2008 at 4:36 pm
i’m a firm believer in nothing beats a plain white tee.

Interesting but I am undecided whether I like it or not.I see far too many ordinary looking people everyday so I enjoy those who standout. Hmmm…
October 14, 2008 at 5:28 pm
I agree with anonymous that she reminds me of Sporty Spice, love the completely 'normal' outfit, and how she added a kick of surprise & colour with that headscarf! (although I myself could never pull it off)
October 14, 2008 at 6:11 pm
Having just been to Milan, I wish I’d taken photos of some of the ordinary people and their great clothes. This girl is naturally beautiful, her looks emphasised by the casual, grey/black/white clothing, with a splash of colour. Fabulous.
October 14, 2008 at 6:37 pm
nice, and understated. this would have been cuter if she had tied the scarf’s knot in the back (at the top of her neck) rather than on top of her forehead.
October 14, 2008 at 6:44 pm
Are you all serious? She looks like a 1950′s cleaning lady. I am not impressed at all
October 14, 2008 at 9:03 pm
hmmmm…. Not so sure I understand this shot. She is definitely a beautiful woman but – I ask – if she wasn’t wearing the head scarf would you notice her clothing? Looks what I see everyday at the gap…
October 14, 2008 at 9:27 pm
Nothing wrong with a working woman people! I do not know how to knot a head scarf myself without looking like Rosie the Riveter. Who is not so bad of a fashion influence.

Perfect look for chic housewife.

I have a picture of my mother in the 1940′s with a scarf tied like this on her head. So I kind of like this in a nostalgic way. I also like the fact that this pretty young woman looks completely natural and I don’t believe she was thinking about an audience when she got ready in the morning.
October 15, 2008 at 11:41 am
Love the pants!
October 15, 2008 at 12:35 pm
i wish my baba could pull off this look like she does…
October 15, 2008 at 4:22 pm
The fact that here outfit is ordenary makes her more special! Her outfit is so simple, but yet, she gets the attention of a famous photografer! The scarf is so special, that the total outfit is nothing but ordenary, I think…By the way, what’s wrong with ordenary if it looks like this, and flatters you?
please, forgive me my mistakes, English is not my native language!

I disagree. I love the head scarf and the way it’s wrapped. She looks like Bianca Cassady.

Simply: Charme! Sophisticated without to spend a lot of money (I assume) with a simple touch. She simply has change a common hat by a colorist scarf that contrasts with her very normal clothes . I love her to be among my friends.
October 16, 2008 at 2:18 pm
I love this girl! A simple look, guarantee success
October 16, 2008 at 3:30 pm
I think she is beautiful. She is just so comfortable and understated. The whole thing looks effortless – which I think is how fashion should look.
October 16, 2008 at 8:24 pm
I love this. This is one of my favourites, ever. So often I see women who are done up so much that you no longer see any of the raw, natural beauty of the person. This is true elegance.
October 19, 2008 at 8:36 am
i love the “we can do it” nostalgia. i think its right to pay homage to the past…thank you for the revival-when the women had to keep the country and the economy moving back in the 40s and 50s-”the war years”…being covered in motor oil and lipstick times…a yin and yang of masculine and feminine style. AWESOME.
October 19, 2008 at 11:39 am
considering the disastrous hair dyeing experience I had yesterday, the “Lucy” style scarf is going to have to become fashionable IMMEDIATELY! Thanks for your help in this process. . .must find more women rocking this, preferably in America!
October 19, 2008 at 9:05 pm
I love her
October 20, 2008 at 12:47 pm
Didn´t notice this pic. when it was new,but I really like her easy outfit and relaxed posing for the camera.
October 21, 2008 at 10:17 am
wow, i absolutely LOVE this look!

Simple, elegant, and a bit of the unexpected in an otherwise entirely conventional presentation.

New inspiration. Note to self. How to wrap a head scarf.
