Nice volumes. I see from your Milan photos that the pigeon-toed pose has started to vanish! Finally. One of the people who post here commented on my blog that a certain reporter made a comment about the pigeon-toe pose on her column in NY Post and attributed the origin to my comment on your post about the Le Figaro editor! I wish I could take credit but it was surely coming seeing all these grown up women standing like little girl blues in their most adult get ups! Bravo once more for your great pics Sart!
This is a great example of modernizing classics. This woman has taken black and used many interesting shapes and details that keep it from being boring or age-y. I love that her dress reflects the current trends (sack dress) but does not make her look like a fashion victim. The dress has just enough shape that it keeps her from looking like a bag lady.
The wedged boots w/ buckles are also eye-catching. I’ve been looking for motorcycle boots that won’t make me look like a hard-core biker chick if that makes any sense. These boots are perfectly “hard core” without making this women look like she’s off to a rally and they look like they’d be quite versatile.
When in Italy, can you find out if any of the Italian designers are outsourcing to China. I have heard that many are using this country to get a bulk of their RTW stuff to market. I heard a nasty rumour that Armani has a tuxedo factory humming along nicely in Shanghai .
Those are of course the uber-cool Louis Vuitton boots that I would kill for. And she has nice hair, too. Thanks for this photo Sart, I am going to the hairdresser’s at the weekend and was just looking for something that might inspire me and I’ve finally found it.
Giovanna looks thrilled to be posing for you. As well she should be, after all your divine shots from last season! I also like how you captured her in the background of one of your Style.com photos giving you the peace sign. Props!
I adore absolutely EVERYTHING about this girl’s look. The soft, yet beautifully shaped dress, the kick @ss boots, and her hair! Her hair is stunning, and to me, it pulls her look completely together…the icing on the cake.
