What’s SO amazing with these photos is that we can really see the difference between the U.S. and Europe. What are we doing in the states? I’ve got to say – it just can’t compare to what you’re showing us from Milan, Paris, Florence, etc. This girl does it up BIG, but still I long for something more sophisticated. Love your work! xo
I know some of you are going to retaliate and think I’m so stupid for saying this, but I have to say it anyways… WHAT’S WITH ALL THE FUR? Aren’t we past this phase in society yet? I’m not saying we need to go throw a bucket of red paint on this girl, but why are we promoting this look? I’m only saying this because the past few months on The Sartorialist has shown A LOT of fur. Have we seriously forgotten about the killing that goes on to create this look? It’s not like it’s a cow hide taken from an animal used for food production. It’s an animal killed solely for its pelt. Even if the clothing uses faux fur, it still glamorizes the look which then influences others to desire it for themselves. We need to eliminiate the demand for fur in fashion. I am not an expert and I’m sure this post will be torn apart but I just wanted to make a point. I think The Sartorialist can do without the fur.
Instant story comes to mind……..will you indulge us? #grin #teamgloriastyle
Jessica stole her great-aunt Berta’s coat from the downstairs closet. It was the one she had last seen her wear at the school play. The one where she said “Jess, you have the makings of a star, love.” So Jess knew she wouldn’t be too cross. Her mother on the other hand would have a cow. But that’s that. She couldn’t go back now. Jess caught the train to grand central station and the subway to 14th street and looked around for Andy Warhol.
Or whichever glam hipster dude thought he was the next Andy.
Berta’s coat worked like a charm.
Suddenly a photographer’s lens shone in the spring sunshine.
She posed, unsmiling. Oozing hope and attitude and an internal plea for glory.
This image reminds me of Joel Meyerowitz’s street photography shots. I especially love his with the two people in yellow coats walking through steam. Also the one where a man has fallen near a subway stairwell. Your work has really taken a turn and I am enjoying watching your progression and how you include more of the surroundings – fashionable or no.
I have great respect for your work Scott. These series of shots with the lighting is a technique only those who know the nooks of the city through and through. Again a wonderful image, the highlight is unmistakeably breathtaking. Is her bag leopard printed as well?
Gorgeous. The coat is a classic. The swing style leopard can go with anything, and she proves it. And I doubt its real, but even if it is, thats not our concern. Theres a lot more harmful things humans do to animals then raise them for fur. Like the overpopulation that drives them out of habitats to extinction. So considering that a person that has no children but eats meat and wears fur is far better for the environment, why don’t we not throw stones at each other. Its hypocritical.
Love the way she channels icons like those mentioned in the comments–Debbie Harry, Cyndi Lauper, Cindy Sherman–yet looks entirely like herself. Also love the fake fur. Like Crystal, I too got very tired of the parade of fur in the winter photos, but I think that faux fur is great. It can be very warm & it often looks great, and as such it makes people who still buy non-vintage real fur look silly and painfully behind the curve.
