    Ahhh… another nod to Vermeer – Girl With A Hoop Earring.

    Stunningly beautiful.

    Wow first time I’ve seen a woman with a (possibly?) Islamic head covering on your website so I had to comment for the first time. She is beautiful and impossibly chic!

      There’s a beautiful photo on the website of a Muslim woman in Melbourne, Australia dated December 15, 2009 :)

    Sometimes I feel that wherever you go you’re just surrounded by beautiful people. Love everything about this picture – the colors, the look, the turban.

    Cheers,

      One of my favorite things about this site is that it reminds me that wherever I go, or any of us go, we’re surrounded by beautiful people. They may not be fashionistas or art school kids, but they’re lovely. And they’re there. We just need to see them. Thanks, Mr S, for reminding me to look and to see.

    Love the choker, lip color, cerulean framing the face, fierce eyebrows and she knows it.

    Wonderful! The way you have captured a very beautiful and deeply enigmatic subject reminds me of an Old Master portrait. A painter has days, weeks, even years to create an image, you and she managed to do it an a fraction of a second – awesome!

    The colours balance perfectly and she wrapped her head in a really particular way, that I love!

    She takes my breath away.

    I’ve also been channeling this precise shade of plum.

    I could not help but notice the similarities to a look Maya Deren sported half-a-century earlier. The turban, strong brows, high collar, and beautiful confidence.

    I cannot help noticing the similarities between this beautiful lady’s fashion and a look worn by Maya Deren half-a-century earlier. The strong brow, the headpiece, the high collar, and the strong confidence are obvious in both women.
