It´s actually almost too perfect!If I didn´t believe you I´d think it was staged.
September 11, 2008 at 8:41 am
prettier than the actual chloe ad
September 11, 2008 at 8:46 am
What a wonderful photo!it’s fabulous – you must have lightning reactions, Sart! I can’t help but laugh with her. I love the way her long black cardigan really brings out the print on her dress and her bag and shoes are perfect together.
September 11, 2008 at 8:49 am
i adore her dress! the colours are amazing.

It is perfect indeed! The hair, the colors on the dress, the shoes…. That is a beautiful woman and a beautiful picture.
Shot of the year!
September 11, 2008 at 9:04 am
breathtaking. really cool shot
September 11, 2008 at 9:05 am
when i look at some of the pictures that you post, i can’t help but want to be that person for just a second…. they capture a moment of time and fashion that is irreplaceable.
September 11, 2008 at 9:07 am
stunning!!!she is gorgeous in that dress + cardigan…..and her Miu Miu shoes are the bestamazing pict
September 11, 2008 at 9:17 am
This shot made me smile. A lovely woman having a laugh and looking great. She’s awesome.
September 11, 2008 at 9:21 am
I love it! And love the black cardigan with the delicate dress
September 11, 2008 at 9:22 am
a little more ‘leg’ never hurt any one of your shots… especially when they’re as lovely as hers.
Somehow what stands out for me in this picture is not really the dress, shoes, cardigan and the slightly visible bag (I think the whole look is very ordinary, personally I would have let it pass), but the capturing of the right moment, the right expression, something that isn’t staged, is the saving grace.
September 11, 2008 at 9:23 am
Perfect in that split second!!!
September 11, 2008 at 9:24 am
sart, you capture the most perfect (and random) moments, its wonderful. looking at this brings a smile to my face, i love it.
September 11, 2008 at 9:26 am
i don’t even notice the clothes – all i can see is that luminous smile. Thanks for making the morning special.

Anticipation is a wondrous thing :)
September 11, 2008 at 9:41 am
The buttons on her dress are great.
September 11, 2008 at 9:45 am
September 11, 2008 at 9:47 am
that happens to me all the time when i´m wearing skirts or dreeses and i don´t have this classy-sexy way of holding them or this hair… Beautiful! Shot of the year!
September 11, 2008 at 9:53 am
What a beautiful smile!
September 11, 2008 at 9:56 am
I love how her reaction was so joyful!
September 11, 2008 at 10:20 am
Indeed. It would’ve been fine originally – now it’s one of my favorites!
I love how her legs are posed and hows she’s hunched and the way her hair moves and the excited expression! the shoot really makes her and the dress more lively. spectacular shoot! ^^ love the choice of sandals they seemingly match not only the the black long cardigan but also the lilac dress itself, she’s wearing.
For the bag I think she could have chosen a better choice. say a black or gold glittery beaded evening clutch, instead? but that’s just my opinion, overall her look is very flattering and is a breath of fresh air! ^^

September 11, 2008 at 10:30 am
Fun Photo…I like the way she paired the shoes with the floral dress!
September 11, 2008 at 10:31 am
This shot embodies all I love about your photography: the idea that despite layers of makeup, perfect lighting, and immaculately chosen outfits, staged fashion can never compare to true beauty serendipity and a smile.
September 11, 2008 at 10:38 am
wonderful shot, as always, sart! you are so talented … for me this page is 80% art/20% fashion.
that said … oh my SHOES!! someone ID them for me! they are beautiful.
September 11, 2008 at 10:43 am
This picture is the perfect antidote to the historical weight of this date. She is lovely, in same spirit as the Girl in Pink and Sandals from a few days ago. This shot reminds me of Garry Winogrand’s series, “Women are Beautiful.” Fantastic work, Scott! The bus was a serendipitous happening!

Beautiful smile indeed. Beautiful legs. Amazing feet also. I want these feet.
September 11, 2008 at 10:58 am
it’s that ANTICIPATION thing your work is all about again, but this time it happened by chance.
i LOVE the result!
September 11, 2008 at 11:00 am
lovely shoes too…
-h of candid cool
September 11, 2008 at 11:08 am
Keep on smiling, and the whole world smiles with you… beautiful combination cardigan/dress, lovely styleCover photo I must said
September 11, 2008 at 11:09 am
quelle joi de vivre! I love it, the spirit is fantastic! And so are her shoes!
September 11, 2008 at 11:10 am
I adore the colors in her dress, and the black velvet coat looks great with it. My colors. Do want.
September 11, 2008 at 11:14 am
I just love her laugh! Great moment!
September 11, 2008 at 11:20 am
WOW! So vivacious! If that was me, my hair would have been stuck to my lip gloss.
September 11, 2008 at 11:22 am
Wind; Movement; Action…The perfect angle of the building behind, with the bus running through in the back ground… the sweeping hair and the flowing dress harmoniously make this take breath-taking
September 11, 2008 at 12:19 pm
Great photo.You can actually see the movement of the whole scene.
September 11, 2008 at 12:21 pm
Perfect! Enough said.
September 11, 2008 at 12:24 pm
A beautiful uplifting photo for NYC especially today. thank you
September 11, 2008 at 12:25 pm
such a sweet expression. anyone know where her sandals are from?
September 11, 2008 at 12:27 pm
My my my…what a shot what a shot what a shot. I’m simply in awe!
September 11, 2008 at 12:30 pm
awesome action shot!
September 11, 2008 at 12:46 pm
I love how she’s holding down her dress laughing embarrassed enjoying the moment, what a shot.so pretty so city so new york
September 11, 2008 at 12:53 pm
Hands down, favorite shot. I love all of your photos, but this one just comes alive for me.
Isn’t this great? When the world tries to blow your cool–LAUGH! She’s a refreshing antidote to all those hunched-over, hung-over, sad-eyed moppets who take themselves SOOO seriously. Thanks for the laugh, Sart. She’s a doll!
September 11, 2008 at 12:58 pm
September 11, 2008 at 12:59 pm
nice shot! i wish i was like her charming when skirt blew up. i experienced it!:)

September 11, 2008 at 1:02 pm
This picture represents what I love about photography, fashion, and city living. You’ve done it again.
September 11, 2008 at 1:10 pm
Perfect photo. I agree totally with michaeljosephowens who said, “This picture is the perfect antidote to the historical weight of this date.”
It is wonderful to see New York has regained its joie de vivre after the tragedy etched into hearts worldwide seven years ago.
September 11, 2008 at 1:11 pm
Wow nice PIC!/Grettings from Sweden ;)
September 11, 2008 at 1:12 pm
i love it! her outfit is put together really well, very sophisticated. the overall shot and individual pieces make it so fun and full of life though (:
oh my gosh. i’m happy just looking at this picture. nice moment. great look. love the sweater over the floral dress that’s not too cutesy and the stripe on the shoe. love everything about the outfit and the shot. i’m going to have a good day.
September 11, 2008 at 1:27 pm
September 11, 2008 at 1:33 pm
this is beautiful.
September 11, 2008 at 1:39 pm
oh, I love that dress so much. I especially like the button details on the front. Beautiful cardigan, too.

September 11, 2008 at 1:40 pm
it is perfect! all these fashion shots need more movement
September 11, 2008 at 1:46 pm
Amazing dress (Chloé FW08) it looks even better in real life.
September 11, 2008 at 1:54 pm
her smile makes the outfit! Great shot!
September 11, 2008 at 1:57 pm
wow. it’s just absolutely perfect here.
September 11, 2008 at 2:01 pm
GREAT candid moment captured…don’t you just love when that happens…well not when the wind blows up your dress but you know what I mean :)

Beautiful photo, Sart. The young lady in the pic looks so happy, and so charming, that looking at her makes me smile. Plus, I adore women in floral dresses and cardigans. Well done.
September 11, 2008 at 2:47 pm
Så utrolig PENT !: )Elsker det bildet .
September 11, 2008 at 2:59 pm
perfect perfect perfect!!!!breathless…i have no words to describe this photo!
September 11, 2008 at 3:10 pm
Yes, buses whiz by every now and then. But, who would have expected that expression and the stance she has her legs in? It’s an otherwise ordinary shot of a woman in a dress, but we can see her inner beauty.
September 11, 2008 at 3:15 pm
WOW those shoes are incredible and so is her energy. Lovely Sart…

Look at her expression! Wonderful! Great shot! Looks staged but I can tell it’s not.

sure it’s lovely, the buttons and playful throw of the head… but I’m feeling a little cheated. when were you going to tell us that you were posting twice as many pics on style.com as you were here? More power to you gig wise, but sheesh i just found out I was missing most of your Bryant Park shots.
was I the only one out of the loop, people??
September 11, 2008 at 3:53 pm
i’ve seen and admired some of your best shots, and this pic is certainly among them. c’est magnifique!

This is just … perfect. What a wonderful composition this picture is ! I am really impressed.
September 11, 2008 at 6:47 pm
I love this picture. It captures a perfect girlishness and a moment of happiness and sillyness……..sorry that’s a lot of “ness’s” for one comment.It is so simple and yet perfect. You look at it and you wish you were there, feeling what she is feeling.Thankyou for taking this picture and thankyou for transporting me away from desk for just a moment.
September 11, 2008 at 6:52 pm

September 11, 2008 at 9:01 pm
she has such a beautiful smile. perfect example of timing being everything!
September 11, 2008 at 9:13 pm
Ooh! Chloe! You’re right, this is a lovely photo.
September 11, 2008 at 9:59 pm
Sart, you have really outdone yourself this time.
September 11, 2008 at 10:05 pm
Wonderful! I love the dress, the photo, and the humor.
A similar thing happened to me waiting on a train platform last week and it was much less graceful and pretty looking. Cheers!
September 11, 2008 at 10:25 pm
A great shot. Sort of takes the edge off seeing a picture of a carefree and glowing lady in NY on 9/11.
BTW – Love Lucia in that Seiko ad.
September 11, 2008 at 11:00 pm
What a sexy babei wanna bend her over
September 12, 2008 at 12:41 am
This is my favourite picture of all time. Just so amazing…you captured the moment, the feeling, absolutely perfectly.
THE DAY AFTER YOU DIE
September 12, 2008 at 1:00 am
timing is everything…..
September 12, 2008 at 1:18 am
I just say WOW!!! What a picture. Her smile reminds me of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman wearing her red dress and R. Gere made a joke with the jewelery box :-)
September 12, 2008 at 1:26 am
Awesome! One of those timeless pics likely to be a favorite for a long time.
September 12, 2008 at 1:34 am
Wow, that is one crispy clear shot. Good job.
September 12, 2008 at 2:41 am
Perfection. Brightens up any day.

September 12, 2008 at 4:03 am
I’m loving this, yes, this is stunning!
September 12, 2008 at 4:22 am
Wow, what an utterly gorgeous picture! I think the shoes are from Aldo, though they may also be a rip-off of a higher-end brand. This is a link to a picture of the Aldo heels, sorry I can’t do the html-y thing. This shoe is from 2006.

September 12, 2008 at 4:29 am
I really like that I can almost imagine being there at that very moment,watching her grab her dress,throw her head back and laugh.
September 12, 2008 at 5:31 am

September 12, 2008 at 9:01 am
looks remarkably like the chloe dress thats featured in the current ad campaigns..lovely. i especialy love the way granny cardigans are being worn by young girls. very “sexy librarian”
September 12, 2008 at 9:19 am
I can hear her laughing!
September 12, 2008 at 9:24 am
September 12, 2008 at 9:40 am
This is the shot that makes your job the perfect job.
September 12, 2008 at 11:40 am
Charming! Great outfit, great smile. Nice timing.
September 12, 2008 at 12:29 pm
Perfect its very rare in fashion that you see a model with a full face smile (yeah I know this isn’t a fashion ad/editorial but it should be), eyes smiling and all. I don’t know why they don’t do that more often, it actually made me feel a really happy emotion, very few, if any, ad photos ever do that.
She looks filled with joy and its wonderful. It made my day.
September 12, 2008 at 1:10 pm
I love this picture. I can almost hear her laugh as the wind blew hew dress.
September 12, 2008 at 2:18 pm
I call this a Marilyn Monroment.
I agree with pixie and others who have commented about her genuine happiness.
September 12, 2008 at 2:30 pm
Oh, I loved it!
September 12, 2008 at 2:31 pm
Been there..She looks lovely in that dress!
September 12, 2008 at 5:24 pm
Brilliant! Such infectious joy! A modest Marylin. This shot goes beyond just documenting street fashion, it profoundly conveys a message.
September 12, 2008 at 8:17 pm
September 12, 2008 at 8:20 pm
September 12, 2008 at 11:48 pm
yep, perfect. i love how she is using black to set off different accents and points of focus, the buttons, the stripes on the shoes and the very interestingly styled cardigan. beautiful and unlike the woman above in the red dress, utterly classy.

This is a beautiful shot. I like how playful it looks. Had you not mentioned the bus passing by I would have assumed she was having fun for the camera.
September 15, 2008 at 1:52 pm
Gleeful surprise, done best by a woman…
What a pretty Chloe dress!

May very well be my favorite shot you have ever shown. Captures everything I like about your blog when it is on point… Spontaneous and Alive.
September 16, 2008 at 6:45 am
She just looks amazing. She almost looks a little bit like the actress that plays Betty Draper on Mad Men – only joyful!
September 16, 2008 at 6:43 pm
i fell in love with this chloe dress when i first saw it on style.com… it makes me wish paulo melim anderson were still designing for them. his prints for fall were just amazing.
September 17, 2008 at 10:21 am
So Beautiful!!! So Happy!! PS: I’ve got the same Miu Miu sandals (mine are silver!)

I think she looks like Blake Lively. Beutiful dress and photo by the way!
September 21, 2008 at 7:26 am
You’re the best.Seriously,I love it!
September 22, 2008 at 8:30 am
i cant help but love her! everything looks so good when it is not staged, right time, right moment.
September 22, 2008 at 10:30 am
This is stunning. Real life is beautiful.
September 27, 2008 at 12:40 am
so gorgeous, she mixes florals with stripy shoes and a black cardi and looks like a model. Amazing shot.
September 27, 2008 at 1:21 pm
