Gorgeous Betty Boop. (Minus the phone.)

Holy cow! You must almost fallen off your bike when you saw this woman!
Talk about a sartorial Marilyn Munroe dream!

Love the pop of blue.
I don’t know why but when I saw this picture I associate it with Lady Gaga.. but it’s a nice picture…
June 10, 2012 at 10:41 am
She looks amazing. I love how she put this together. Wonderful for a warm day.
This is a amazing shot, Scott. Great job.
I love everything. Strangely reminds me of Gwen Stefani and Scarlett Johansson. Not sure about the earrings though. The colour combination of her outfit against that grey steps is fantastic as well.
June 10, 2012 at 10:45 am
Cool chick. Like.
June 10, 2012 at 10:49 am
Great attitude to go with all the pale. Shoes do the trick.
June 10, 2012 at 10:53 am
Wow, these earrings… More is more!
June 10, 2012 at 10:54 am
This is my favorite out of the hundreds of favorites I do have this is it
I really like this image. Lovely subject matter and also the framing is lovely. Very stylish! Love it!

Skinny modern day Marilyn.

Oh goodness, what red can do for blue.
Not normally a fan of the visible underwire though. Still not.
June 10, 2012 at 11:08 am
Looks a bit forced to me…

What fun to be Gaga for a day! This is a great look for summer.
June 10, 2012 at 11:15 am
This looks like a production! The photo is very nice
Oh, wow, she looks so glamorous. I wonder what her story is?
June 10, 2012 at 11:16 am
Her skin is a dream.
June 10, 2012 at 11:18 am
This is a very unique outfit and she reminds me of Marilyn Monroe! She looks great!
June 10, 2012 at 11:20 am
Usually I find plenty to say but… Wow!

50 Shades of Excellence! What a totally New York photo. You continue to impress and outdo yourself.
An ode to your prowess; your forging ahead and not resting on the laurels of notoriety, award or previous accomplishment.
June 10, 2012 at 11:26 am
Holy bombshell, Batman! LOVE her.
June 10, 2012 at 11:27 am
She is amazing! Is it really 2012? Maybe the mid 50′s? oh no, she has a cellphone! Love this photo!

It’s all about those shoes !
June 10, 2012 at 11:44 am
I love the Gaga style !

You know…. the polar opposite (I think) to this image would be the one you took recently
of the girl with the natural hair on Elisabeth Street:
Even though she is not ‘natural’ in anyway…she is still absolutely striking.
Both images are beautiful.
June 10, 2012 at 12:15 pm

As beautiful as your photos are there is something about the style in NYC that strikes me as synthetic.
wow!!!!! Marilin remember!
June 10, 2012 at 12:53 pm
Absolutely stunning. Marilyn Monroe street cred.
June 10, 2012 at 12:59 pm
WOW! This is so sexy. Love it.

Amazing! She looks like on a movie set :)
June 10, 2012 at 1:06 pm
Love the juxtaposition of this photo and the one before it!
Congrats on the CFDA award. Everyday, I dress with the Sartorialist in mind.

…that woman is a lot of work, I mean puts in a lot of work but she makes a strong impression. (2nd, 3rd and 4th thoughts)
Anazing hair & makeup… Very Marilyn Monroe!
June 10, 2012 at 1:54 pm
Great photo but it reminds me more of sunset boulevard than a modern marilyn/gaga
Maria (from Cambridge)
June 10, 2012 at 2:15 pm
I agree with Irene (The Athenian) about the shades of gray and black in the photo. Along with the blue, they make the outfit complete and complex. I think intense blues and grays are an interesting color combination for the summer, and I find myself drawn to those colors right now. This is the opposite of “effortless” fashion, as another person noted, but, no matter. Sometimes “effort” is just what you need on a particular day. Great picture!
June 10, 2012 at 2:59 pm
Her hair and her blue pumps are amazing! Love the red lips too.
June 10, 2012 at 3:00 pm
This is fantastic. Amazing find, good job!

Amazing to be able to pull this look off. She looks great. But is she still in her curlers…?
June 10, 2012 at 3:46 pm
What a bombshell. Great choice, Sartorialist. This girl really known how to have fun with her look.
June 10, 2012 at 3:53 pm

It is like she stepped right out of a Kerry Drake comic strip…You’d probably only get to say the word ‘dame’ once around her though…?
June 10, 2012 at 5:00 pm
The glamourous 1950s hairdo and the bright red lips are such an interesting contrast to her holding a mobile phone. This is fabulous.

June 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm
So beautiful. Ephemeral glamour.
June 10, 2012 at 6:12 pm
A most intriguing blend of retro and modern, leaning forward into the future. The clothing is flawless, the woman is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
June 10, 2012 at 6:27 pm
love her hair and lipstick it makes the look. Kind of 80’2 madonna
June 10, 2012 at 7:23 pm
WOW! Unfortunatly this woman does not live in good ol Fort Worth,Texas,I would love to take her picture too. I disagree with R up above in comments,she doesn’t look forced to me at all. Beautiful. mr.john
June 10, 2012 at 7:24 pm
I have an appalling internet connection and it took an eternity to download this picture. Usually I flip to another in impatience but I was determined to see this woman. And she was worth it. She is fabulous.
Oddly, I think her top half and her bottom half look as though they belong to two different people (in terms of colour).
Her skin is sublime and I wish she’d left her legs bare. That would be daring! Why is it that white legs are the hardest things to take out in public?
But those things are bagatelles – I love her.
June 10, 2012 at 7:53 pm
She looks stunning! I love the blue shoes with the outfit!
June 10, 2012 at 7:54 pm
Very, “Who’s that girl!”
June 10, 2012 at 8:13 pm
What a woman! The entire look is timeless and the pop of those heels are exquisite.
June 10, 2012 at 9:02 pm
The girl and outfit are striking of course but I’ve got to say those earrings are amazing! … and if she put the sunglasses on too – a showstopper for sure. A sweet glimpse.
June 10, 2012 at 10:21 pm
Amazing look – as always, and amazing photos – as always! Beautiful!

This totally made my night when I opened this site up when I found that Dirty Harry was the top entry! She is such a cool chick and one of my favourite musicians honestly and I’m surprised no one’s said anything about that.
If you want to know more about her, here’s her website: http://www.theamazonica.com/
And her wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirty_Harry_(musician)

There’s a saying: There’s no ugly women, just lazy ones. I admire the fact that she clearly put in much effort, pride and thought into how she wanted to project herself that day, whether or not the look appealed to everyone.
June 11, 2012 at 4:42 am

Love her tiny tattoo !

June 11, 2012 at 5:07 am
she looks amazing!
Marilyn Monroe, Madonna and Betty Boop came up to my mind when I saw the image. She has amazing skin, hair and a body to die for…NY is full of stylish beauties.

did you get ( by chance) her cloud number?

Love the ivory skin, and the outfit might be suitable in a movie, but I would never dress like this.

Last Exit to Brooklyn! What a superb look, shoes, oh yes they be working!
June 11, 2012 at 6:15 am
In total awe of this hardass feminine vibe. It’s more than the way the outfit is put together and the meticulousness of her quaffed hair and snow-like skin … what I’m drawn to most is the attitude of this picture. It comes across so tough and self-assured but there’s also something soft and not at all aggressive about it. She’s great. Just love it.
June 11, 2012 at 6:44 am
wow! Pin-up girl!
June 11, 2012 at 7:17 am
Wow, what style! It’s amazing that this was an actual girl in her own life and not posed as a model. So glamorous. We should all put in such effort daily!
June 11, 2012 at 7:24 am
Amazing! So chic!
June 11, 2012 at 7:37 am

she reminds me of when nyc was chock full of interesting people. love it.
I am tired of this look.
June 11, 2012 at 10:24 am
At first glance, I feel she is channeling Marilyn Monroe and then I looked more closely and imagine this is Mary Antoinette.
June 11, 2012 at 10:50 am
Someone remarks that it “Must take a lot of work to be her.” Not necessarily. A woman who does that all the time generally has it down to a science and can pull that together in a few minutes. Yes, looking good takes a bit of effort. Tragically, I see too many people who don’t bother at all – sweat pants, cargo shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops… c’mon people. It takes no more effort to put on something nice as it does to make yourself look like “hell.” Please – have a little pride when you step outside!
June 11, 2012 at 1:12 pm
This model is awesome! It seems that any look goes very well with her.
Mary Monre is not dead!
June 11, 2012 at 1:38 pm
Looks as if she’s trying too hard. I didn’t buy it.
June 11, 2012 at 1:40 pm
Just too much… maybe if she changed the shoes to flats it could be cool!
June 11, 2012 at 2:00 pm
I’m so copying this! Thank you!
June 11, 2012 at 2:03 pm
She reminds me of Jessica Chastain’s character in “The Help” love it!
June 11, 2012 at 2:06 pm
Hot outfit, hot gal! The blue adds a nice touch. Did I mention hot gal?
June 11, 2012 at 2:48 pm
this is really OMG!!!!

I love the way she seems very vulnerable and very strong at the same time. Gorgeous woman, great choices.

If anyone knows, what is the proper photography etiquette? I know it’s polite to ask a person before taking their picture, but must you always? I’m going to guess yes, especially if you’re posting their photo online. Right?

This style is sexy and cool. The white shirt is so cute. The gray skirt is sympol and cool. The shose is very showy. I like this. However I can not wear.Because I abash. I think that this style is not much me.
June 11, 2012 at 9:24 pm
She is gorgeos and cool!!!!! I like this photo very much. Her shoes are so cute. It’s color is bright blue. Her tatoo is so cool. Her hair is wonderful. Red lipstick match her. I fell in love with this photo at first sight.

June 12, 2012 at 12:20 pm
My favorite accessoryhere is the pale, pale skin. Very refreshing to see someone be natural and also it’s very pretty on her. This outfit would be cartoonish outside of NYC, but it’s perfect there.
June 12, 2012 at 3:46 pm
Lovely picture.. Everything is correct! Like she has prepared for the photo haha. Nice!
June 12, 2012 at 9:01 pm
No kidding, I got off the R train behind this girl in this outfit last Thursday and I thought she looked exactly like the type of person one sees on the Sartorialist. By the way she was carrying herself and posing, I guess she felt that way too (and was right).
June 12, 2012 at 9:29 pm
This blog is definitely my newfound addiction. The pictures are tremendous and inspirational. Love everything about this.

Other than those oversized earrings and that hideous tattoo on her chest, this is phenomenal. An attractive, in-shape woman wearing stockings is a winning combination and more American women need to figure this out. Phenomenal. I’d love to take her inside.
June 13, 2012 at 6:12 am
i love the colour mix of the photo! all the grays and then this stunning blue and red… a great shot!
June 13, 2012 at 7:29 am
She’s a daredevil when it comes to her own style, she’s unique and she is not afraid to show it.
But I think it’s a pity that she’s wearing those huge earrings and the burburry printed bag. Great picture though.
June 13, 2012 at 11:50 am
She is so goreous. The hair and lip color work so well together
Love the photo
June 13, 2012 at 12:21 pm

ah…the top takes me back to Marilyn Monroe’s cherry dress in “The Misfits” If you don’t know the dress, google it…a classic.
June 21, 2012 at 5:17 pm
I love most of your pic, but these is just amazing. Spectacular. Beautiful. Thanks for showing us such a perfect style.
June 23, 2012 at 10:38 am
Am I the only one who thinks there is just too much going on here? I mean, the bright blue six inch heels, the black stockings in the summertime, the overly done hair, the chest tattoo. Oy! Give me some simplicity any day.

February 5, 2016 at 12:20 pm
The decadence of her look evokes Angie Bowie.
