    Love the leader jacket.

    her style is still really cool but the new hair cut definately adds an edge (i love it) and shows off those blue eyes!

    Beautiful eyes. I prefer the second style.

    Hmm..first softer hair, harder jacket, then tough hair with softer jacket – but the same stance in both. I think I like earlier look better but it's great to try new things!

    Its like looking at two different people. She is definetly amazing in any look. But she has certaintly got to return to her previous one.
    Love her huge eyes and her leather jacket.

    I remember this older photo! I like her hair better wavy but her outfit in the first is a lot more my taste. She's gorgeous.


    April 16, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Love the straight cut! x

  30. Gary MAEL

    Nice, I love her white shirt collar. Apart from this I prefer her previous look, but she still looks good anyway. She likes crossing her arms !

  31. Dana

    April 16, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Both looks are great. I think she looks happier in the first and newer photograph.

    I can't get over the difference in her personality from one to the other. Looks like an older sister in the first, as if she has grown up. As to the style, great in both.

  38. Alyce

    April 16, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    I agree with dana. I probably like the style better in the second/older photo, but her eyes look so much happier in the first/newer photo and that completely changes everything. Happiness is far more attractive than a beautiful dress.

  39. Emma

    April 16, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    I love the fact that she looks so different, yet so the same. I mean you can still tell its her style and her, but she has changed all the same as well.

  40. Time Counter

    April 16, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Her "then" photo was definitely sexy with attitude. Her "now" photo is so refreshing. There's so much clarity in her new style it's almost preppy. It's just much cleaner. I hope she alternates. I think people should always change themselves; it surprises people.

  41. The Fashion Alchemist

    April 16, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    she is beautiful! I love the "then" look, but it's interesting how her facial expressions change!

    Her eyes look so seriously bored in the first image and so doefully awake in the second. It's great that her style between the two shots can't be compartmentalized. She's very striking!!!

  45. Lady Danger

    wow i remember the first photo, both are fantastic but i like the curly hair hair in the second one better, love the juxtaposition though!

    same mannerisms, same girl – but worlds different simply because of her haircut. how interesting that sometimes that's all it takes….

    So cool ;) now she looks woken up!
    Relating to her sense of expression… her presence (and may I add, my opinion is that in the current photo – her simple ensemble does not diminish her individuality or appeal). x

  49. arpita

    April 17, 2010 at 12:11 am

    well.. the earlier girl looks soft ..cute.. childlike.. theres a kind of sensibility which is seen in the 'now' pic….certainly there is a morphe….

    My goodness, that's more than a style change, it's an attitude change — there is a real smile on that face which makes whatever she's wearing look great.

    Such photos are always interesting to look at, I think the now version of her is softer, kinder…

  58. Dillon Padgette

    April 17, 2010 at 3:55 am

    It truly is ALL in the attitude. The sparkle in her eye, in the first photo is so subtly charming. The blue gleaning of her eyes, with her facial roundness, effortlessly pouted lips, chopped hair and that buttoned collar, she strikes me with a welcoming youthful charm; this integral feeling to what ever and where ever she's going with her day… and to wonder… what she's reading…

    And in the progression, well we may not be so quick to answer… but I wonder if she broke into laughter after she was photographed.

    Would love it if you did more of these "year apart" pieces – with folks of many different ages/periods in their life: pre-divorce; post-divorce…

    In the older shot, she looks like she hasn't quite grasped the chalice, or set her compass; in the second, she is grounded, clear-eyed, and ready for biz.

    Amusing and entertaining because I'd bet you're getting viscerally polar takes on this pair.

    Such a stunning young woman, but I'm surprised so many people prefer the earlier look instead of the later, more sophisticated look. I see no "edge" in the earlier look: it's a bit too predictable. She's getting smarter with her choices. Good for her!

    She's adorable in both photos but somehow I like the recent one more. She appears far more self assured now with the way she looks, clear eyed and amused, straight down the lens of the camera rather than peaking out in an almost bored way from behind her hair as she did a year ago. This young woman looks ready for any adventure, a willing, engaged, joyful participant in life.

    Now less to prove and more to do…the tough girl wants to be taken seriously. She still has the edge with the "popped" collar, crossed arms and even moreso with the straight glance now.

    I lke her in both pictures but the hair really compliments her in the "now" one… It gives her face such a geometrical character that makes her beautiful face stand out… imagine the first pic with the new hair and you'll see what i mean. BTW she's holding the book!! :D

    if I was not looking at her expression in each then I would probably prefer her older look… but for me the newer photograph looks so much more appealing because of her head-on gaze into the camera. it's as if the photographs are of two twins with completely opposite styles!

    I like the way she has strong style. And I also think both her looks go with her personality kinda- she is quite shy.

    Very strong, typical Russian features. Outstanding!
