a very smart woman: the color compliments her complexion, the silhouette and the length, everything is perfect. furthermore, her jewelry appears simple and understated. she looks beautiful, elegant and well in her skin. more sexy, happy women please!
She looks beautiful – very natural, relaxed and at ease. However I personally do not like the shoe with this shape. I think a chunkier heel and darker colour would balance the vibrancy and looseness of the dress in a much more pleasing manner.
Thank you Sart for showing a beautifully dressed woman who isn’t a stick figure. I’m always delighted to see more and more women being photograhed in fashion who are the normal average size. Her dress, shoes, hair, everything is so pretty in this shot.
Woah! cool. I would like to see something bringing the look up to her absolutely stunning face. a flower in her hair would work divinely. The pink shoes are an inspired choice. She rocks orange, and not many women can.
Sometimes I think that rather than people well dressed…you actually pick great pictures, with great light, in the right place and at the right moment…it’s not that much about fashion, but about amazing pictures…and the awesome way you can capture peoples’ expressions…. just wanted to say this. However, some of them really look stylish, what I also like. big kisses from BCN. Lyly
Love the color! She looks fantastic in it and I love the way the fabric moves as she walks. Iâ€™m interested in how that dress looks when sheâ€™s standing still. I have a feeling it would look kind of shapeless and unflattering. Looks great though as long as she keeps moving.
love it all! defying staid rules in the most inspiring way. who says curvier women shouldn’t wear diaphanous silhouettes or pair bright shoes with a bright dress! the loose bun is a lovely final touch.
In response to the first post: I agree she looks lovely, but then why add that she’s a “real” woman with a “real” figure??? Because the thinner women shown here aren’t “real”?
Perhaps you’re just having some fun, and I’m being a wet blanket– but I’ve noticed on more than one occasion where posters have (playfully?) bashed the “skinny” types when commenting on the more full-figured types.
Anyway, she is lovely and glowing with such a radiant smile. The dress/kaftan only enhances her beautiful presence.
After seeing the original photo of this dress at the Kris Van Assche Spring 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection on Style.com, I agree with two sets of posters here: the “her curves elevate that dress” and “that dress might not look so great unless in motion”.
Clearly the dress looks spectacular on this curvaceous woman. I would also like to see it at rest to see if it still looks and drapes as beautifully as it does in motion.
As a size zero who thinks that women with flesh look much, much better than do we starved-looking types, I agree that this is BEAUTIFUL. Everything about this breathes comfort and joy. I absolutely love it and wish I could do it myself. It’s a colour I bought recently, though in a fitted sheath – great to see it in vogue, as with the bright yellows.
she looks wonderful – but does the dress look as good when it’s not in motion? Whenever i try to wear something this voluminous it tends to look strange if I’m not moving (BTW I am a “real” woman with a very “real” figure!)
She’s beautiful and her smile is the only accessory she needs. I love the color of the dress and am also curious as to what it looks like when in repose. I would imagine that movement is it’s best friend.
I’m small (thin and 5’4″) and know that I’d be swallowed up in so much fabric. She must be pretty tall.
I also dig her shoes.
As for her being a “real” woman….I don’t even know what that means but I do know that she’s gorgeous real or fake.
Count me in the group who finds it terribly offensive how everyone overflows with comments every time a so-called “real” woman is featured. Can’t we just keep the focus on the picture itself, and the woman in it, accepted as they are?
This woman looks gorgeous, and it would never have crossed my mind to critique her weight if not for all the comments.
And the anonymous poster who described size 0 as “starved looking” – Please. You’re not helping, just because you may be a starved looking size 0 doesn’t give you the right to insult others who may be a natural, healthy portion-eating size 0. Trust me, we exist.
I’m not fond of orange myself but this woman wears it well. The dress looks great in motion and suits her figure, but standing still? I’d like to see the same woman and same dress in different angles. Not with those pink flowery shoes, though.
love love love. she’s BEAUTIFUL. color fantastic. hair perfect. gorgeous smile. i want to be her. where’s she going? off to the museum? fabulous flight somewhere? oh, i love this shot. makes me care about her.
