October 8, 2009 at 5:18 pm
less is more. simple and perfect.
stunning-almost looks like a studio shot xx
October 8, 2009 at 5:22 pm
There is a God…….and SHE wears tank tops.
who is she? She's alluring….. beautiful skin.
October 8, 2009 at 5:27 pm
i think this might be my favorite pic this year. B E A U T I F U L !
October 8, 2009 at 5:32 pm
Absolutely stunning & striking! Love the masculine watch and paired down outfit with the very feminine hoop earrings…
October 8, 2009 at 5:34 pm
awesome (but the nail polish?!?)
October 8, 2009 at 5:35 pm
Now those are some yoga arms! Love how simple her style is.

Great pic. Love your lighting. One could paint her with a circle, triangle and two cris-cross strokes of the arms. Very fluid. Thanks!
October 8, 2009 at 5:43 pm
Stunning woman!…. How can you post a picture like this and you don't tell who she is.. lol ;)
October 8, 2009 at 5:44 pm
Beauty in its pure form.A little arrogant look but I guess it should be that way.And I love the shadow play.
October 8, 2009 at 5:45 pm
Sometimes less really is more. :)
October 8, 2009 at 5:47 pm
look at those interesting shadows layered on her chest. they're like a necklace.
October 8, 2009 at 5:48 pm
I love the simple wedding ring & the large, men's watch. I love women in men's watches.
October 8, 2009 at 5:50 pm
Are we looking for beautiful people or beautiful style?
It's a great picture but unfortunately it's not what I come here to see.

That's Brooklyn Sudano!
October 8, 2009 at 7:09 pm
Her skin tone and bone structure are amazing! I love how she is dressed so simply too, really shows off her beauty and doesn't take attention away from her face!
October 8, 2009 at 7:10 pm
Beautiful picture. I love how the woman just pops against the black background.
October 8, 2009 at 7:15 pm
This photograph screams money and elegance to me (not that the two things go always well together). I remember a jeweller in Milan a few years ago complaining about this trend of women wearing big sport watches. "A woman's wrist is too small for the typical men's diving watch" he said. I like it on this lady tough.
October 8, 2009 at 7:23 pm
beautiful. what i register here is the way the watch accentuates her amazing arms. anyone know what make it is?
October 8, 2009 at 7:24 pm
Not a fashion home run just a beautiful girl born on third base.
October 8, 2009 at 7:38 pm
To the person who accused this lady here of not having beautiful style. I wonder where you get your definition of style?
Personally, over the top Balenciaga shoes and bags, poofy skirts and shoulder pads are as obscene as powdered wigs and crinoline skirts.
If you agree that fashion is art, this photo is definitely art, and by implication- very fashionable.
Gorgeous portrait! Well done
October 8, 2009 at 7:55 pm
It's a beautiful photo, beautiful subject. If only she weren't wearing that clunky man-style watch. When did women stop wearing those little dainty watches?
October 8, 2009 at 8:08 pm
You captured her gracefulness…I like her immaculateness especially her manicued nails!
October 8, 2009 at 8:10 pm

I think this is your homage to Irving Penn.
October 8, 2009 at 8:51 pm
Fashion industry, the trend set and the people in it seem very fine, but Scott, the reason I started to follow your blog was that you posted shots of personal styles of commoners as well. The blog feels like any fashion magazine nowadays, especially during the fashion months. Saying things like this have gotten me in trouble in other blogs, but I hope you don't forget what made your blog unique.
October 8, 2009 at 9:03 pm
this picture is beautiful!
October 8, 2009 at 9:05 pm
This is the kind of shot that is so striking that I try not to look too long, because I actually won't want to stop.
It's the kind of portrait that makes you understand why figure and portraiture will never get old.
It's the kind of image that goes beyond the clothing, and cuts straight to the woman.
October 8, 2009 at 9:27 pm
October 8, 2009 at 10:09 pm
sexy and so fresh
October 8, 2009 at 10:16 pm
She has the most beautiful arms I've ever seen.
October 8, 2009 at 10:50 pm
Marvellous photo! And the subject herself is so simply elegant — I love the subtle play of the deep blue against the black and the understated strength of the jewelry.
October 9, 2009 at 2:04 am
The most gorgeous photograph of the most beautiful woman in the world. This is iconic.

October 9, 2009 at 2:30 am
A star is born.
I recommend that you photograph this extraordinary woman more often; or at the very least allow her to share with us her style tips.
She has an innate sense of minimalism and breathtaking beauty.
October 9, 2009 at 3:02 am
SUBLIME! Timeless yet of the moment. Congrats on a genious portrait.
October 9, 2009 at 3:50 am
I'd be happy with any row in LV!
October 9, 2009 at 4:08 am
love her necklace!
October 9, 2009 at 4:10 am
Should have been on the cover of Vogue.
October 9, 2009 at 4:11 am
So beautiful – with a face like that, I almost don't care about the clothes – that said, she is dressed very elegantly. And I love the rich blue of her trousers. Gorgeous woman.
October 9, 2009 at 4:50 am
Women with a little men touch always looks goodI mean the ''watch''
Thank you to share all this beautiful pictures Scott.
Have a wonderful ween end guys.
October 9, 2009 at 5:35 am
Beautiful arms, so simple and elegant. Love the light.

Second row? She should have been the first exit out onto the runway.
October 9, 2009 at 10:49 am
beautiful, elegant, timeless.
at first glance I thought it was Joy Bryant or Paula Patton
October 9, 2009 at 11:02 am
I don't understand why one great picture of a generically great looking woman is posted and people have a fit over it. Yea, her outfit isn't over the top unique or great, but come on, this is an awesome shot of a cool looking gal. I also dig men's sport watches on the right type of girl.
October 9, 2009 at 11:06 am

Wonderful. Love the composition and the light on her skin. Such long limbs.
October 9, 2009 at 12:07 pm
Just stunning ! A great pose.Wish I had her arms.
October 9, 2009 at 1:04 pm
Specialward… She's generic?Wow… Okay
October 9, 2009 at 1:05 pm
Brooklyn Sudano is better looking than both Paula & Joy (with all due respect)!
October 9, 2009 at 1:06 pm
October 9, 2009 at 1:08 pm
Just so that I understand, LV doesn't have Brooklyn in row 1?

The contrast of light and dark reminds me of Rembrandt's work–that's not hyperbolic. If Rembrandt had had access to a camera, this is what his portraits would havelooked like!

October 9, 2009 at 3:01 pm
Hey, I know her, that's the fabulous Donna Summer's daughter! She looks just beautiful.
October 9, 2009 at 3:23 pm
what a bombshell. She deserves front row
October 9, 2009 at 4:27 pm
her face is the elengace itself
October 9, 2009 at 4:54 pm
amazing and complex–what a wonderful picture!
October 9, 2009 at 5:42 pm
Love every single thing about this. She is just a woman with timeless elegance. I love the look on her face, sensuous. I love her clothing. I love her jewelry, even that big watch on her dainty wrist.
It's all perfect.
October 9, 2009 at 6:28 pm
This is such a beautiful portrait. Nice job!
Not every photo on a fashion blog has to be of outrageous, unattainable outfits.
As for Specialward's comment…I'd much rather see a beautifully lit portrait of an attractive person than a shot of someone plain dressed like a clown :)

today, after a despicable morning, i wandered into a bookstore/coffee shopi and there next to the new valentino was your collection of art. it was the only copy on the shelf and looked as if it had been admired a few times over. honestly, the sight of your book and its worn binding made me truly smile. i ended up buying that very copy for knowing that very book uplifted others delights me. all inspired, p.
ps this woman reminds me of your cover lady, ms. julie ragolia. :)
October 9, 2009 at 11:19 pm
former model or just child of the rich and famous? she is beautiful thanks to good genes, the picture is wonderful thanks to your skills. As a inspiration of style, not so much.
October 9, 2009 at 11:31 pm
extremely sophisticated and sexy. love the minimalism.
October 9, 2009 at 11:42 pm
Eat your heart out, JLO.
October 10, 2009 at 12:27 am
It really is amazing how the shadows have created the perfect necklace.Look at her collarbone, and her broad shoulders, and long arms with elegant hands.With simple make-up, big hoops and what looks like a ponytail.A mens Omega watch and nothing else on her wrists.A wedding band and ring with nothing else on her fingers.And there in nobody around her, behind her, etc?At a fashion show?She's like a dream!
Scott you really nailed this one!
October 10, 2009 at 2:46 am
October 10, 2009 at 3:53 am
Amazing pic. Simple and so sophisticated. Love her watch on beautiful arms agains deep blue color.Want a similar watch?Please advise which brands to look at.Thanks in advance.
October 10, 2009 at 3:58 am
Thanks so much for photographing someone on the "2nd" not "Front" row.
October 10, 2009 at 4:49 am
All that femininity is giving me heart palpitations. Even the shadows are paying their respects with a gorgeous triumvirate of moody apparitions caressing her neck.
October 10, 2009 at 7:06 am

i love how her outfit disappears into the background
October 11, 2009 at 1:42 am
Omega mid sized mens watch, brilliant!Something as simple as that, along with a few other clearly made decisions evidenced in this portrait, shows her style is on another level.To be this beautiful and possess an understated style, that's how it should be done.
October 11, 2009 at 1:49 am
I like your title "Second row…".
I take it to mean, see not every beauty uses PR and is dressed by the designer and plopped down in row one.This is a girl that clearly could have that happen for her and yet she sits in row two looking elegant and timeless.
The look on her face is amazing.
October 11, 2009 at 1:54 am
I saw her at the show,the best looking most graceful women in the entire Palais. Tim Blanks was interviewing her on camera backstage afterwards.
Those slacks were very high waisted with a full leg,she was a stunner.
October 11, 2009 at 2:10 am
Well she was in the front row sitting right beside Francios-Henri Pinault at YSL on Monday night I can tell you that
October 11, 2009 at 2:26 am
ActressThe coolest girl in Hollywood hands down!Great get Scott
October 11, 2009 at 8:16 am
She's so fiery that her left hoop earring seems to be smoldering.
October 11, 2009 at 9:06 am
who cares about fashion so much when she is hot like this? fashion is but clothes thrown on, a disguise. this woman can throw on a mcdonald's outfit and she would probably shine and people would look at her and say "damn!!!"

It's a perfect magazine cover. I can see her head peaking over the title, w/plenty of space for content information on the side. It would JUMP off the shelves.
October 12, 2009 at 2:05 am
I am OBSESSED with this girl and this picture!
October 12, 2009 at 7:01 am
The posture of the hands is simply so elegant
October 12, 2009 at 3:36 pm
This woman is FABULOUS!!!! Everything glorious emanates from the photograph. She is so comfortable in her own skin. This is what I aspire to radiate.
October 14, 2009 at 1:12 am
The shot is great!
The dark background brings the focus to the subject with such an impact! Her brown skin looks so luminous and her black hair and black singlet blend into the darkness bringing her forward more. This looks like a high fashion shoot.
October 15, 2009 at 7:44 am
October 15, 2009 at 2:49 pm
The cover of Vogue comment is spot-on. I have no idea who this woman is, but the photo of her is more thrilling than 99.99% of what I've seen in fashion magazines this year. The only other photo that's gotten me so strongly was that one of the toned woman in the red American Apparel dress on her phone in front of the taxi cab. Everyone remember that one? Sigh.
October 16, 2009 at 1:48 am
As a designer, this photo has very pleasantly inspired me in terms of just clearing my head, redefining what is true chic and elegance and generally re creating a canvas… ! Fashion is not always about a zillion details but more of a focal point that escalate into beautiful aesthetics. Everything in this photo is a starting point for that perfection. Who is she? : )
October 16, 2009 at 11:05 am
It's BROOKLYN SUDANO
An American Film & Television actress with a few dozen credits, who also happens to be the daughter of Donna Summer & Bruce Sudano
She was in the cast of Damon Wayons "My Wife & Kids" on ABC for a couple seasonsThere was just a pictorial of her in Septembers InStyle magazineEtc
She is special!
