    I love that this teen is embracing her individuality (and her braces!). All of the details are so fantastic…the hat, the shoes, the berry red lip and that retro dress.

    She is that elegant at 15????? OMG. If she gets any more stylish gravity is going to fail. Amazing. I had braces too at 13, and i wouldn’t have smiled like that for a photo if you paid me back then. Perfectly modern take on the 1920′s flapper.

    Is it weird this picture gave me goosebumps? It takes a lot of courage to strive for such an unique look for a 15 year old. Not only her look is inspiring, so is her attitude.

    Love that she is not afraid to smile big, even with braces. She is so confident and knows her style. Love the dress, esp. the black piping. The neckline is so original. The hair, the cloche–so chic, and at such a young age. Smart girl.

    OMG. That dress. That hat. Those shades. And those braces.
    So much fun. I wanna be 16 again :)

    Seriously, the most striking thing are the black contours of the dress. Are they like drawn? They look like drawn in with a big fat marker pen. So much fun.

    she is the same age as my middle son. hard to imagine that they even share the same species. she looks wonderful: his idea of dressing up is to wear clean underwear.

    oh well…..girls develop differently for sure.

    Undeniably cute and quirky! A bit like a character out of a modern-day fairytale, aka ‘Amalie’. Great colors and accessories… I really wish I could see more of her hair and face, she looks so intriguing. :)

    A latter-day flapper! She’s wonderful!!! I have photos of my grandmother dressed like this. . . It was considered a very daring look in the Roaring Twenties.

    In a world awash with fly-by-night trends desperately sought and obsessed over by many, this girl has individuality and character, not just in her fashion sense but clearly, beyond her 15 years. Kudos to her.

    Love this look. As mentioned earlier, I thought Amelie…. very beautiful, but I’m a sucker for vintage/retro. :)

    To see oneself as an individual at 15 is rare and beautiful. We are not one collective being called “teenager” or “soccer mom” or” senior citizen” We are all individuals and should be thrilled that we don’t have to be like anybody else. We have a choice to create from what is inside of us, as this young lady has chosen.

    I *love* this photo! Isabel really brought this vintage dress from my shop to life. I was nowhere near this stylish or charming at her age. Beautiful.

    Does anyone know who makes her amazing dress and where to get it? I don’t care if I’m more than twice her age, I’d love to wear it!

    I’m 15 and I haven’t seen anyone in London my age with such a clear sense of style. She looks like a young Maggie Gyllenhaal.

  46. Joseph

    August 19, 2014 at 4:42 pm

    What I find most refreshing in her look is that it is devoid of denim and sparkle and metal and obvious sex. Kudos to her for doing her own thing. I am guessing that she has fellow classmates who secretly yearn to follow her lead in claiming their own style, but somehow don’t – or can’t.
    Brava !!!

    Ooh! Ooh! Is it Jazz Age Lawn Party pictures time again?

    She is absolutely adorable and has a bold beautiful future ahead of her. Kudos also because she did her research and nailed the era’s style better than many twice her age.

    And I really want to copy that dress!

    Wonder what she looks like when she’s not dressed specifically for the Jazz Age lawn party?

    Hope there are more shots from Governors Island this year, Scott, I always enjoy them.

    She is so ridiculously perfect I can’t believe it. Even a mouth full of braces doesn’t detract from her perfect coif and navy straw cloche. I want to hang out with her. Ohhh, if only more 15 yr. old gals were this stylish.

    OMG! A teen who is actually appropriately dressed for her age and wildly original at the same time. Gravity may, indeed, fail! I look forward to seeing the heights this child will scale. With her brains and vision, the sky is no limit at all.
