    a very smart woman: the color compliments her complexion, the silhouette and the length, everything is perfect. furthermore, her jewelry appears simple and understated. she looks beautiful, elegant and well in her skin. more sexy, happy women please!

    The flow of her red dress is a Titian painting reinvented.

    i am curious also, “anonymous” asked, how does it hang when you’re not moving. I suppose for the woman on the go that’s irrelevant otherwise, I’ve found a new love. Kris Van Assche.

    Great colour, great shot, but I actually think it’s spoiled by the shoes. They’re too dainty and delicate for this dress in both style and colour impact.

    Funny how certain colours can be so ‘out’ for years and years and then suddenly they’re beautiful once again. This is lovely, fresh and uplifting fashion and she wears it well.

    She looks beautiful – very natural, relaxed and at ease. However I personally do not like the shoe with this shape. I think a chunkier heel and darker colour would balance the vibrancy and looseness of the dress in a much more pleasing manner.

    Thank you Sart for showing a beautifully dressed woman who isn’t a stick figure. I’m always delighted to see more and more women being photograhed in fashion who are the normal average size. Her dress, shoes, hair, everything is so pretty in this shot.

    Sometimes I think that rather than people well dressed…you actually pick great pictures, with great light, in the right place and at the right moment…it’s not that much about fashion, but about amazing pictures…and the awesome way you can capture peoples’ expressions…. just wanted to say this. However, some of them really look stylish, what I also like. big kisses from BCN. Lyly

    Love the color! She looks fantastic in it and I love the way the fabric moves as she walks. I’m interested in how that dress looks when she’s standing still. I have a feeling it would look kind of shapeless and unflattering. Looks great though as long as she keeps moving.

    She’s dressed in the color of a Dutch football fan. But Dutch football fans are not as elegant as this woman. And the shoes are fantastic!

    How refreshing to see a full-figured woman for a change. Love the kaftan, not a fan of the shoes. Some tan, gold or turquoise blue sandals would have been better.

    In response to the first post: I agree she looks lovely, but then why add that she’s a “real” woman with a “real” figure??? Because the thinner women shown here aren’t “real”?

    Perhaps you’re just having some fun, and I’m being a wet blanket– but I’ve noticed on more than one occasion where posters have (playfully?) bashed the “skinny” types when commenting on the more full-figured types.

    Anyway, she is lovely and glowing with such a radiant smile. The dress/kaftan only enhances her beautiful presence.

    After seeing the original photo of this dress at the Kris Van Assche Spring 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection on Style.com, I agree with two sets of posters here: the “her curves elevate that dress” and “that dress might not look so great unless in motion”.

    Clearly the dress looks spectacular on this curvaceous woman. I would also like to see it at rest to see if it still looks and drapes as beautifully as it does in motion.

    Beautiful color, beautiful photo, BEAUTIFUL woman but I’m confused about the fit of the dress. It seems unflattering and sack-like.

    With that smile she could be in a trash bag I suppose ;-)

    I love that her smile and confidence are the only accessories she needs. she’s so radiant in that color and the dress requires such movement/energy that she must dance through each room!

    As a size zero who thinks that women with flesh look much, much better than do we starved-looking types, I agree that this is BEAUTIFUL. Everything about this breathes comfort and joy. I absolutely love it and wish I could do it myself. It’s a colour I bought recently, though in a fitted sheath – great to see it in vogue, as with the bright yellows.

    she looks wonderful – but does the dress look as good when it’s not in motion? Whenever i try to wear something this voluminous it tends to look strange if I’m not moving (BTW I am a “real” woman with a very “real” figure!)

    I don’t know if anyone has said this but it reminds me of the painting Flaming June by Frederic Leighton. The radiant color represents the spirit inside. I think its fantastic

    She’s beautiful and her smile is the only accessory she needs. I love the color of the dress and am also curious as to what it looks like when in repose. I would imagine that movement is it’s best friend.

    I’m small (thin and 5’4″) and know that I’d be swallowed up in so much fabric. She must be pretty tall.

    I also dig her shoes.

    As for her being a “real” woman….I don’t even know what that means but I do know that she’s gorgeous real or fake.

    Count me in the group who finds it terribly offensive how everyone overflows with comments every time a so-called “real” woman is featured. Can’t we just keep the focus on the picture itself, and the woman in it, accepted as they are?

    This woman looks gorgeous, and it would never have crossed my mind to critique her weight if not for all the comments.

    And the anonymous poster who described size 0 as “starved looking” – Please. You’re not helping, just because you may be a starved looking size 0 doesn’t give you the right to insult others who may be a natural, healthy portion-eating size 0. Trust me, we exist.
