It maybe fashionable, but is it attractive? flattering? Does she really want to look like she is wearing doll clothes?(top photo) The second photo is a woman who is truly chic–well dressed,comfortable, and not costumey.
Is she wearing balenciaga? I love it. The photo would have been more flattering for her if her neck wasn’t forward (talking on the phone) but straight and elongated. Unlike the poster at 2:06, i find this look both fashionable and attractive. My kind of clothes. I find the woman below less interesting.
maybe the woman in the top photo would look nicer if she didn’t look so pissed off. in addition to her attitude, the shape of her clothes make her look like one of the moody characters from alice and wonderland. take out her face and her outfit is very chic and wonderful, though it looks like a subtle variation of what other women wear at the shows.
Hi anonymous, I love the top photo, don’t think they’re doll clothes at all, more Japanese aesthetic (particularly the slightly quilted look). It’s the hair-’not a do’ that is letting her down a little, that sheath of sleek hair is crying out to be fashioned up to match the clothes! Caught her at a funny angle too, I bet she wasn’t stooping seconds later!!! Hester
The lady in the first picture is an example of someone who proves that truly original runway looks can translate well into real life. I personally think she makes the Balenciaga work very well, I guess because she’s keeping the rest of her outfit – and her hair – understated. The lady in the second picture somehow makes flares look fresh again! I think it’s time to move on from skinny pants and jeans!
LOVE the Balenciaga jacket and the miu miu gloves in the first look she looks FIERCE!! Thea jacket is sooo darling. I was looking at it last season, but could not buy to balenciaga jackets after two seasons..
Outfit #1 is beautiful, but at least in this picture, the woman wearing it looks a little old for both the clothes and the hair style. It could just be the picture, but I really hate seeing older woman trying to do very young trends (I’m mostly talking about the hairstyle here). She just looks like she wishes she were younger, and that really isn’t all that fashionable.
“not costumey at all, especially if it’s Balenciaga”? Do we wear clothes or just labels? Is an ugly, inappropriate garment good if it’s an important designer name? Is a perfect piece, chosen carefully, worn perfectly, flattering to the wearer, less wonderful because it came from a no-name maker?
Some of your comments makes me so tired. The woman in the top picture is really beautiful and looks so cool. Stop obsessing over her posture bla bla and her not putting on a smile in front of the camera. She’s not in a beauty pageant!!
Weird that everyone likes the second look! The first look is so much more intersting and daring. The second look is conservative and generic, not unattractive per se, just not very imaginative; you can see it everywhere.
photo #2 - I like everything about this woman’s presence – her zone of comfort, her apparel – with the slight quibble that I’d be surer she wouldn’t trip if her flares were a smidge shorter. Beyond fear of the lady tripping - I see the pants as somewhat counter in style to the coat, which is trim and near militaristic; I don’t mind them together, but would like the proportion better with the pants’ hemline ever so slightly higher.
i think the woman in the top photo looks quite chic. i like the coat of the woman in the bottom photo, but i’m so much not a fan of her pants and frankly i had trouble getting past her hair (and i have a full head of curly hair so i’m usually sympathetic).
