This looks real ghostly.White worn like this is a very demanding color,especially white,opaque tights reveal every single imperfection on our legs.Somehow this picture has this 60¬īfeeling,a period I¬īm so glad is over.
My favorite thing about your pictures is seeing people break the rules and pull it off brilliantly. Sure, we all know the dangers of white tights, but she looks perfect, doesn’t she? The outfit wouldn’t have close to the drama without them.
Wow wow. What a delightful oreo. I totally disagree with Grace’s comments about white tights. I think white tights can look incredibly chic and even sexy with the right outfit. I hate when people have ‘rules.’ Rules are the antithesis to style.
Refinement and sophistication are two elements that we desperate needs in our modern life ‚Äď this pictures simply reminds us what is could be like if all take sometime in our daily time to get indulgence with our own presence -
this is a nice contrast to the many, many young ladies you have shown lately with black opaque tights. I think she is having a bit of a laugh at them in her own way. But I don’t care for her shoes, they look like ice skates, and with the floating effect of the photo that look is exaggerated.
Too many of the other photos lately are of a very particular look that I guess is just prevalent in Paris right now with the black tights. It already looks tired.
Great photo, amazing subject. She stands out from a predominately black and white background with her stark white and jet black outfit. She naturally attracts the eye; she’s a colorful, black and white gem in a comparatively grey world.
This black and white outfit is amazing: the gloves, the hat, the handbag — everything. It recalls an era of cinematographic class straight out of films like “Charade” or “Rear Window” with Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly wearing gorgeous outfits. This young woman is stunning.
I think she pulls off the white tights well! She is far from a nurse or under 10, but fashion is supposed to be daring and an experiment with color! Her outfit is very aesthetically pleasing and, viewing fashion as a form of art, is beautiful.
gorgeously bold and glamorous. I love the shapes, the eye-makeup, the gloved hand. white tights, though not for everyone as anon and grace point out, are striking, highlighting the lines of her shoes and defining positive and negative space.
Amazing photo! Thank you for posting this pic in your blog, I saw it on style.com.. Love the fact that she didn’t leave her legs bare and wore white tights.. She completed her look even more with her mod eyeliner and poised hand..
The whiteness of her coat against the white-ish reflection makes it seem as if she came out of nowhere.. great effect!
i like the pieces individually, but do not think they work at all together. it is an incredibly harsh white, and putting it with the white tights honestly makes me cringe a little. the shoes are phenomenal.
i feel like her face is completely vacant, and the eye makeup definately adds to that blankness- but if the point is to wear one’s personality and mental state externally for the day, than she has achieved something like that.
Kudos to her for finding a perfect pair of white tights. Everyone should try looking for them sometime and expose themselves to the flattering comments of bemused salespeople. All I can say is: Thank goodness for online stores.
I know her very well! I wish You all can see her everyday! She is a work of art herself! She is a young very talented designer from Russia. Her name is Victoria Gazinskaya! It is worth to fly to Moscow to see her and her collections!
unbelievable. its perfection, every drop. someone said she is fierce, they were right. she seems as if she dwells in a world of perfection where everyone could pull it together like this. she must be a designer to hav eachived that effect.
This is a sharp outfit, but I can’t shake off the association of its colors and contours with the word “bovine.” The white splotched with black, the vaguely hoof-like shoes. Perhaps if the jacket were more tightly-fitted…
Am I the only one who finds this too…costume-y? Oh, it’s beautiful, for sure. But it’s just so studied; it requires such removal from life in every particular…the sense becomes almost sterile. I, for one, love seeing a bit of the deshabille in one’s self-presentation.
I love individual elements: her eyeliner, the shoes, the coat, her posture and so forth. But together? All at once? Contrived, in my view.
This is a spectacular shot. The lighting off the water in the back, combined with the black and white outfit (and the geometry of those shoes), is dramatic and ethereal at the same time. This strikes me as a real “money” shot in a movie.
i think this look is quite wonderful and i love when people wake up in the morning and choose to wear something different! i would consider this look perfect if her waste was more emphasized-with a belt maybe- helen=)
