What a contrast to our Lady in Red! This witty costume would be perfect for the next episode of “A Series of Unfortunate Events”…I can see the effort here, and it’s a strain…even though I do love the vest. The shoes, sadly, smack of tourist–why not a pair of oxfords? She looks so very unhappy–I want to give her a hug and tell her to cheer up!
I worry that this blog allows us to believe we can critique a person’s garb, simply because the subject has permitted Scott to photograph them. Is that what they’re aware of in the moment of the photograph? I just caught myself thinking, ‘Hmm, the woman has given an illusion she is long in body, short in legs.’ Then I thought, ‘You arrogant and self-righteous hypocrite!’ I don’t dress daily for an audience to give unsolicited opinions, do I?!!
Androgynous but not tottaly. I like how she plays with the details: the school boyish tie, the diva sunglasses. That bag with those shoes. I believe sheâ€™s someone that chooses carefully her wardrobe in order to send a message. And again, the scenario is brilliant.
the backdrop you photographed her on, goes perfectly, its awesome gives a bit of sense to her look…. she reminds me of the matrix, that minimal background, with that outfit very cool…however i’m not crazy about the shoe pairing..
She looks gorgeous but very unhappy. I hope it’s just a fashionable pose and not her true feelings. She looks like someone who has gotten everything she wants and now isn’t sure why she wanted it in the first place.
Reminds me a bit of Karl Lagerfeld’s manner of dress…only this is better, because of the androgyny. She’s daring and I think it works in that, as someone else put it, the long line is consistent. There’s a real conviction here. Bravo.
I’ve been told the toes pointing in stance is a model thing – supposedly makes your legs look thinner… As for the white “tourist” shoes…this look was everywhere in Europe this past fall, so naturally it’s migrated to America six months later…
GREAT SHOT!!! Love her style as well but it’s the pic that stands out here. Can’t get enough of the grey horizontal lines and the dark vertical line in the foreground. Would love to see other shots on this background. Very NYC!
This photo is absolutely amazing! And why are people surprised at feet pointing in slightly? Has noone ever heard of being pigeon-toed? It’s not about “knowing how to stand properly”…I guess not many people out there have ever had problems with their legs or feet growing up…
