She’s a lovely girl and probably can wear just about anything–so why the ill-fitting beach cover-up? And with a black leather shoulder bag–oh my. I can see that these prairie dresses are trendy–and there’s something to be said for a cosmopolitan look that can take you from East Hampton to Omaha or Ann Arbor. But still…
The lovely floaty dresses of summer need two things – a slim frame and movement – the movement is captured lovely with the sun highlighting her lovely frame but the black bag and shoes certainly add unnecessary weight to this look.
“She’s a lovely girl and probably can wear just about anything–so why the ill-fitting beach cover-up?”
Agh! I’m so tired of this! To paraphrase an earlier post somewhere on this blog, her figure doesn’t have to be public property 24/7. Maybe tomorrow she’ll wear a miniskirt and a tube top but sometimes, flowy dresses or baggy pants can be fun. Sheesh.
Lovely photo! This looks like a photo for an advertisement (and I mean this in such a good way!), with her expression and the way her body is in tune with that expression. Can’t you just see this as a perfume ad (“Set your spirit free with Hamptons Musk…”)?
If it was for an editorial (just the girl, the dress and nature), she would look great. But, for the occasion, she is simply overexposed. But, overexposure is no problem to most people nowadays, isn’t it? And, judging from the images I see today, the concept of “decency” has ceased to exist as well. I’ll be long gone before it makes a comeback.
I am in love with this picture for two reasons. First off, she looks absolutely happy and radiant…what a great moment. Secondly, although some commenters complained about her not wearing a slip, I think the light shining through her dress adds a somewhat sensual element to an otherwise tame picture…really adds something special to the photo…reminds me of a very famous picture of Lady Di in which the light is clearly shining through a rather long skirt). Keep up the good work Sart.
I agree that is is simply not appropriate and one would be uncomfortable in that lingeriw at a match. There’s a whole ‘nother look being worked at those things! Well, if you’re really part of the horsey set, anyway…
Love the photo. As always, such wonderful composition and eye for detail. I think she looks wonderful in her gauzy dress. What a lovely expression on her face; happy, carefree. , I do think the dark bag is too heavy for this look. It is best to wear flats on the polo grounds – any heel sinks right in – but, again, I would have preferred a lighter shoe.
I would agree wholeheartedly that she is a very attractive girl and would probably look good in a lot of things. However, that being said, she does look as if she is off to Woodstock. Hippy=bad fashion. That necklace seems a bit heavy-handed as well. And bras were meant to be worn, especially for one with such an ample bosom. Otherwise trashiness comes to mind.
come on people… I’m all for slips when they are needed, but since when did seeing the mere silhouette of a human body become indecent? (And if you were actually there you probably couldn’t even see that, it’s just a by-product of the photograph) Just like with that Carine Roitfeld photo in the semi-sheer white dress (though nothing was revealed at all) a few weeks ago, people are acting as if she’s running around with her skirt over her head pantyless. And I thought I was a prude.
geez, you people make out to be some kind of hussy. I think she looks great and to top it off she looks like she’s having a blast. i’ve seen plenty of women showing some clevage at polo events. it’s not exactly the shock of the century. i’m assuming this is bridgehampton? i don’t know how things roll at virgina polo events but from the sound of it i wouldn’t want to go.
Just because she is a pretty girl at a polo game doesn’t mean she LIKES form-fitting clothes or preppy attire, and I doubt she would be grinning like that if she wasn’t wearing something that made her happy.
At the end of the day, isn’t that the difference between stylish and just trendy?
holy cow. is it me? maybe not, but this shot is all about how beautiful this girl is. it’s an outstanding shot, sart, because it has an otherworldly quality and it makes this most likely naturally quite pretty girl look unbelievable.
call me crass; I love this site, but once in a while there’s a shot that is 100% about a beatiful woman, and this photo is one of them.
