    Great to have some connect between the talent and the environment – normally your portraits stand out to me for their clear disconnect between man / nature.

    Keep up the good work Scott :)

    I can only hope that there's a little bit of irony in here somewhere… fashionista/os tend to take themselves a little bit too seriously.

    That being said, i LOVE her shoes. it's not too cold in NYC to be wearing peep toes?

    Was that a fashion show in the middle of 7th Av.?!
    She looks very italian, and she shows a very strong personality!

    November 13, 2009 at 8:32 am

    She is the very picture of a powerful New York woman, powerful in the sense of being strong and knowing who she is and what she wants. Bravo to her!

    Back in the 80s, I had lots of electric blue (including my wedding dress), and a big, gold Wonder Woman belt. In that era, we wore stirrup pants for the skinny-leg look, rather than leggings. Otherwise, I think everything she has on would have been in my closet at that time.

    If it was good then and it's good now, I guess it must be classic.

    Your photos are usually quite transparent to the subject matter, but here there's a nice tension between what's more interesting, the photo or the phashionista. She has stopped time. Will be one of your classics, I'll bet.

    this shoot is absolutly stunning, the way she looks at you like nothing can be stronger than her, and the way the man is looking at her, just like us thinking like she's right, she's just the stongest !
    how can she do that ? we can't even see her eyes, it's just by the body, the hand in the pocket, the foot slighty moved.

    congrat's and OMG she's breathtaking.

    I like the photo itself more than the ensemble. I think she is taking herslef a bit too seriously for my taste and something about the big glasses, big bag, big coat combo, or maybe the fact that she looks a lot more like money than fashion. but like i said good shot.

  73. Jessica

    November 13, 2009 at 2:14 pm

    I personally love the contrast between her too big for life, taking herself too seriously attitude and the people around her, especially the man on her proper left. She may be having her fabulous fashion moment, but life is still going on around her. She is simultaneously connected to and removed from the environment.
    Brilliant, brilliant photo.

    Hasn't the man in the tan coat been a subject of at least one of your photos? He looks very familiar. Looks like he is trying to identify who the woman is.

    I like the contrast between her strong stance from the knees up and then the turned-out ankle that says "or maybe not".

    Awesome! I love this picture – the lining on a jacket has seldom made such an impact on an outfit. This woman doesn't give a damn what I think of her – she knows she's freaking phenomenal, and I admire that.

    She looks like any sense of fashion she has is only as a result of a lot of money. And I don't like that incredibly impractical and awkward way she carries what must be a rather heavy handbag. The belt is beautiful, though.

    The composition and attitude of the subject and the man on the side is what makes this picture. However, I find her to be very cheap for some reason. Perhaps it's the overly glam sunglasses and belt. Too many 'bells and whistles.' I feel like she's just another tourist from California looking for some cheap bargains.

    Secondly is the man walking past, he doesnt seem to understand what is so important about this girl, maybe he never will.
    and lastly is the 2 girls on the left in their ripped jeans and skater shoes, they look so blah and unorganized compaired to the center focus

    I'm drawn to the girls on the left. They look EXACTLY the same: brown Uggs or skater shoes, destroyed Abercrombie jeans, navy blue Hollister parkas, and pin-straight hair. But what's most compelling is that they have no idea what's going on in the center of the photograph, both in a literal sense and fashion-wise.

    There is nothing wrong with ripped jeans. My favorite jeans got ripped and I wear them – I figure that "style" is as valid as any other crazy "style" out there – who makes the rules that it is so "passe"? People fawn over some person in PJ pants and call him so artistic avant garde bla bla bla yet the same people get all worked up on torn jeans? Seems like a small group of snooty people like to decide what style is. I Like the main girl's shoes, but not the clothes and am not a fan of the belts. I think the girls next to her are just as confident and have a very down to earth style

    Love the electric blue lining! And that's actually a totally true depiction of the garment district in NY…random combination of tourists and fashion peoples squished on the sidewalks together!

    Don't really like it… Feels like she got lost on accessories: fur on the coat AND this extra fur collar, golden belt, blue detail on coat… But great photo and very different from what you usually do.

    Not a big fan of the book, but I adore the belt.

    I think she made that coat. It's really unusual.

    I'm a little iffy about the belt, but she can carry-off anything.

    Style is attitude and she's got lots of that.

    I love her belt. But above all, I love her attitude.

    This is so New York… midwestern tourists in the back, a powerful glamazon, and a dweller taking it all in, absolutely imbibed by her gorgeousness. Amazing shot, Scott.

    Everyone in this shot has such a strong expression, and the composition and quality of the photograph are so well done the scene seems almost surreal.

    So much to take in.

    This is a great shot. Even though there is a lot of action going on, she is still the focal point. However, that guy's facial expression is priceless.

    Great pic – i love the guy on the left… he's perfect.

    She's too full of herself with her "try too much to be stylish" outfit but thankfully so… she makes the shot.

    impeccably. new york.
