So beautiful to see the sun in their eyes!
February 15, 2010 at 8:29 am
Love the blue sky and the orange lipstick. Beautiful colours!

February 15, 2010 at 8:32 am
Both are totally gorgeous with mysterious eyes.This is where the clothing is irrelevant because the faces capture all the attention. Beautiful backgrounds too!
February 15, 2010 at 8:34 am
something new. i like it!
February 15, 2010 at 8:37 am
I am liking the close-up shots. It's nice with a different angle this time.
February 15, 2010 at 8:42 am
love it! fashion is carriage in so many ways.

stunning photographs today … wow .
It's Waris Ahluwalia!
February 15, 2010 at 8:46 am
gorgeous. sometimes it's healthy to see the people and not the clothes. beautiful portraits.
February 15, 2010 at 8:55 am
I adore these photos, especially the first one – there is something so fresh about them. They've made me realise that the face says so much more than clothes.

February 15, 2010 at 8:56 am
really beautiful photos. the colours and expressions on their faces are incredible. i love all the textures around their faces. really lovely.
February 15, 2010 at 8:57 am
That lip color looks good on her.
February 15, 2010 at 9:00 am
Wow, this shows how a smile can be the most stylish thing you can wear
February 15, 2010 at 9:04 am
For the first time, while I love the photos. I don't like the post. It has an air of something that doesn't jive.
February 15, 2010 at 9:05 am
beautiful one and both, love Waris Ahluwalia, a true gent.
February 15, 2010 at 9:12 am
STUNNING! I think one of your best photographs. Really something to hang on your wall!
February 15, 2010 at 9:13 am
It is about confidence. smiles.

Wow. They are both beautiful.

February 15, 2010 at 9:21 am
these pictures are amazing! i don't know what it is that makes them so beautiful, maybe the colors, but i loved them from the start!
the man is an actor, I think you can see him on The Darjeeling Limited…

I love her lips, but he looks a gentleman.

February 15, 2010 at 9:26 am
so beautiful and soft. I love these..
February 15, 2010 at 9:28 am
Who is she? Why isn't she in the movies????
February 15, 2010 at 9:29 am
I love the soft expression of secrets in their eyes. No one can know what theyre thinking about and damn these lovely portraits makes me wanna know!! The fact that our thoughts are ours and no one can ever know them unless we express them is really lovely and scary!
February 15, 2010 at 9:32 am
For Anon 9:04How so?
February 15, 2010 at 9:38 am
Beautiful shots. Love the way the sky softly frames the faces and the city is recognizable in the background. An original take on "street" fashion photography. Soulful portraits too.
February 15, 2010 at 9:41 am
Sometimes clothes can distract from the persons face,sometimes as you say they can frame it. Great to see a differnt angle on things!
February 15, 2010 at 9:53 am
She looks the spitting image of a young emanuelle beart…Brilliant portraits, with that stark celestial blue as background.
Two perfect photographs Scott, thank you. These two are really putting themselves "out there" which I love. Once again, you have renewed my faith that we too can put out the fashion goods. Happy Monday to everyone!
February 15, 2010 at 9:56 am
Lovely faces, lovely eyes, lovely sky…
February 15, 2010 at 10:04 am
Beautiful portraits both!
February 15, 2010 at 10:08 am
Maybe it's the lighting. You've always used natural lighting. Here it looks as if you've had some help, although I have no way of knowing for sure. It starts to be more about the photography than the subject maybe? And there are more than enough photography blogs. That said, I really like these portraits. They're terrific. You're excused for having a little fun, in my humble opinion. I don't see it as a loss of focus necessarily.
February 15, 2010 at 10:17 am
Is that Hannah Davis?
February 15, 2010 at 10:18 am
THESE TWO MUST BE SOME KIND OF CELEBRITY???? AM I RIGHT????
February 15, 2010 at 10:26 am
just gorgeous. . .
February 15, 2010 at 10:30 am
Bravo ! I love those portraits. They are so different and yet something in the way you present them makes the link. Fantastic colours and light.
uhhhhh i am OBSESSED with orange lips right now.
February 15, 2010 at 10:32 am
So mad happy that you put up a picture of Waris. More sikh men who aren't afraid to follow the faith need to be recognised. It does not hurt that he is amazingly good looking as well ;)
February 15, 2010 at 10:35 am
wow, that girl is so beautiful!
February 15, 2010 at 10:37 am
I love how you captured the depht of their feelings in their eyes. Marvellous.
February 15, 2010 at 10:38 am
Who is the woman? She was on Garance's blog and Hanelli's blog a couple of days ago, so she must be in the industry somehow. She is very pretty. Her face deserves to be framed.
February 15, 2010 at 10:39 am
I already see this in an art gallery :).
i swear, red lips are the perfect quintessential accessory, every time.
February 15, 2010 at 10:41 am
February 15, 2010 at 10:54 am
at her face
February 15, 2010 at 11:10 am

February 15, 2010 at 11:18 am
It is Laurel Pantin – Teen Vogue beauty. Just as beautiful in person!!!

What is so precious is that this bright and reflecting the sun effect is not due to some…photoshop miracle! Good photographer, good models!

February 15, 2010 at 11:42 am
Amazing, amazing. The top picture is stunning at first peep. But the second warms up to you, sneaks in and snaps the heartstrings. A sensitive portrait. There you have it.
February 15, 2010 at 11:45 am
I love her red lips and the scarf perfectly frames her face. xo
February 15, 2010 at 11:59 am
LOVE the bright lipstick & naked eyes…very refreshing.
Grey again…I'm telling ya, looks good on everyone!
Scott, if you're at the Thom Browne show…look for my son, Jullien Herrera (he's in it).
February 15, 2010 at 12:04 pm
that first pic is beautiful xoxox
February 15, 2010 at 12:05 pm
I love the contrast between the pictures and how you captured the mystery in their eyes. Brilliant.
February 15, 2010 at 12:10 pm
Nice details! Love her red lips!
what dia like
February 15, 2010 at 12:21 pm
February 15, 2010 at 12:28 pm
Wonderful scarves! I love both!
February 15, 2010 at 12:30 pm
This is exactly something I've been working towards.
February 15, 2010 at 12:34 pm
THIS IS EPIC. LOVE THE FACE ON THE FIRST (AMAZING LIPS) AND THE SECOND IS VERY ETHNIC CHIC!!!
February 15, 2010 at 12:41 pm
I wear a scarf almost every day. I feel naked without one
February 15, 2010 at 12:43 pm
love the hair and lips at the first photo!what a contrastXOXOhttp://loresfashion.blogspot.com
February 15, 2010 at 12:45 pm
Wow! These photos really get you to have a little look inside their souls.
February 15, 2010 at 12:48 pm
I love her lipstick!http://www.coquettishfacade.blogspot.com
February 15, 2010 at 12:56 pm
Is that the actor from the Darjeeling Limited? The guy who also played the camera-man in the Life Aquatic?
Regardless, he (and she) look(s) awesome.
February 15, 2010 at 1:16 pm
I adore these! The colours of her clothes and that lipstick! amazing
February 15, 2010 at 1:19 pm
I love your "new" focus, the portaits and everything. This morning Garance and now those two. Wonderful.
February 15, 2010 at 1:30 pm
fantastic pics! :)
February 15, 2010 at 1:33 pm
love these two pictures. Bravo!!I try to do something in the same spirit since few weeks…(http://street-faces.blogspot.com/)I have to work and work….
Thank you for your look on 'everyday street life'!
February 15, 2010 at 1:40 pm
Beautiful photographs, wonderful compositions.
February 15, 2010 at 1:44 pm
He is always stunning- and so is she. Great pairing of photos. Wow.
February 15, 2010 at 2:35 pm
Stunning, stutting photos. You are really drawn into their personality! The woman's playful hair flipping about in the breeze, and the triangle created by the man's turban draw us in.
February 15, 2010 at 2:39 pm
i like these a lot. they both have such piercing eyes. also i am so jealous of her hair.
February 15, 2010 at 2:42 pm
Beautiful photos. She looks like a young Brittany Murphy.
February 15, 2010 at 3:17 pm
Beautiful; are they models?
February 15, 2010 at 3:41 pm
love both the portraits… the guy wears his indianess really well… super chic… the the red lips always get me…i agree she looks like brittany murphy…
February 15, 2010 at 3:48 pm
I think you took a picture of the same guy on 04/20/2009….
February 15, 2010 at 3:49 pm
He is absolutely from Darjeeling and Life Aquatic. He is such an amazing character. She's beautiful too. Both have great style.
February 15, 2010 at 4:01 pm
love the bottom scarf.. those colors and lines give a touch of "masculine" color and thought
February 15, 2010 at 4:37 pm
The gal is at the peak of her young beauty. The guy – he looks wonderfully mysterious and handsome.

February 15, 2010 at 5:36 pm
I love the colors– that lipstick is her shade!
February 15, 2010 at 6:14 pm
wow, i love these…
February 15, 2010 at 6:24 pm
I like that you've been featuring more portraits lately.
Laurel Pantin is pretty but in this portrait she is stunning.
I like the clean lines and the glow of both pictures… It makes it feel like spring is coming.
Both of them look classy, sophisticated and ready to *do* something. It captures what I am aiming for at this time of year.
February 15, 2010 at 6:51 pm
we just have to say from brooklyn to anonymous, no girl has only one peak of beauty, there are many over a lifetime.

I'm loving the lipstick!!! yay for her
February 15, 2010 at 11:07 pm
Seeing the girl, makes me wish I could turn her age again. Today, everything seems to be ok, when I was her age, the possibilities were scarce. But I have my experiences, something she lacks.
February 15, 2010 at 11:48 pm
Love them. I have to say, the new red-orange lips that are showing up everywhere rock my world. I never thought I'd be an "orange lipstick" kind of woman but that teaches me never say never! It's a great trend esp on the heels of so much dark fatale red.
February 15, 2010 at 11:50 pm
That's the train conductor from Darjeeling Limited, yes?
February 16, 2010 at 12:21 am
so so beautiful

what did you meant by faint heart? He is not even a muslim. He is a Punjabi…religion derived from Hindu. Men are encouraged to keep their hair long n tie then up in a bundle (turban) If you noticed, he'd probably also have a tiny bulge in the turban-where he stores his tiny comb.
February 16, 2010 at 1:01 am
I met this man on a train in India.
February 16, 2010 at 3:13 am
Love these. Especially the second.
February 16, 2010 at 6:26 am
he is wonderfull and unique in his style…love him…
February 16, 2010 at 7:26 am
she looks amazing!! reminds me of marilyn monroe.
February 16, 2010 at 8:09 am
Oh dearest Sart,those are the best pictures EVER! So wonderful. A reminder why it is nice to be human, to live on this earth, to breath, to think.At least for today they stop me from just taking the leap of faith out of the window.Thank you.
February 16, 2010 at 9:43 am
No Way!! I just saw Darjeeling Limited two days ago! Wes Anderson is a genius for using this guy. He is the ultimate straight man that is humuorous to boot because of his timing. Love these shots, Sart–they have a hopeful/other worldly quality about them. W.A.'s beard jumps off the photo (almost).
February 16, 2010 at 10:05 am
I'm a scarf wearer, and I love how different these scarves are: the first, the most basic and simple knit, and the second, a more complex textured silk with different coloured threads. Both suit their wearers and draw out their characters. While she could probably wear his scarf, it wouldn't do as much for her as the one she's wearing – and it certainly wouldn't give the same beautiful, insouciant vibe. And I can't imagine him wearing her scarf, period. These photos show how how much is conveyed by what is basically a length of cloth.
February 16, 2010 at 10:24 am
very inspirated portrait of the girl
February 16, 2010 at 11:48 am
Laurel looking gorgeous as ever! The lip shade is Mandarina from Milani Cosmetics. http://www.milanicosmetics.com

Back at you Brooklyn:
I said "peak of her YOUNG beauty"
I agree, girls & women have many peaks (and sometimes valleys) in their beauty during a life time.
February 16, 2010 at 2:30 pm
And I quite like how chatty you've been on your blog lately. It's a nice departure from just outfit posts.
February 16, 2010 at 7:57 pm
When I saw the picture on the top, I didn't really think much of it. Pretty girl, ordinary outfit, from what I could see of it. And then I saw the second photo.
These two pictures work together beautifully as a diptych, and they really should never be presented in any other way. The similar backgrounds, postures, and lighting tie them together and yet the contrast is striking and unforgettable: the plumpness of her face and the line of his cheekbones, the lightness of her hair and the curl of his beard, her flashy red lips and his conservative turban. Even the directions that they are looking compliment each other.
I don't know if you meant to arrange them this way on purpose, but really, these two photos, as a diptych, not side to side or switched, but just the girl above the man is such a perfect arrangement and was meant to be just so.
February 17, 2010 at 1:27 pm
He is in the movie the Darjeeling limited, i recognized it at once! hah, looks great!
February 17, 2010 at 6:30 pm
AH! the guy has totally been in more than one wes anderson film. i have always adored his look. the two photos look wonderful together!
February 17, 2010 at 7:18 pm
Amazing portrait of Waris Ahluwalia!
Love the mysterious gaze i his eyes.
