I actually really love her outfit in the bottom picture. I agree with Riri, it looks like pjs…BUT she works the pjs like not many people could! Plus, have you ever seen pajamas that fit that well? I don't think so.
I generally love your shots. Normally, I find the people, the style and the photos equally breath-taking. But I'm having a hard time appreciating this woman. Her shoes in both shots seem coarse. I really don't like the combination of the grey/silver bag with the green and white in the first outfit. And I'm really not feeling that pajama suit at all. Even as pajamas go, that outfit is pretty ugly.
Even so, it's really great to see the variety out there and these shots made me think carefully about why I was responding negatively to them. So thanks so much again. I look at your site every day and it's superb.
Oh my god… she's a virtuosa. Not many people could pull off the floral black suit, head to toe (on me, this would look like pajamas) … but man, this woman is WORKIN' it! Love the simplicity of her first outfit – white dress, khaki jacket, brown sandals … lovely. Thanks for posting these, Scott!
Wonderful!! I like the second picture very much! She is splendid with her flower outfit, very distinctive and very cool. Her second outfit gives her a great personality!! Do somebody knows the designer of the flower outfit?
beautiful woman. the first outfit is really chic, I love those colours together…the second one: wow! just someone like her could wear it so well. Besides the print on the suit is very classy, I like yellow+purple so much.
Sorry This time I disagree with your readers: I think she is lovely, has great hair, and teeth, and a great smile, but; She does not have young enough knees for the dress she is wearing in the first photo.
I really enjoy the second one because it's most risky. But she have a great sens of style mainly with her selection of accessories : wonderfull shoes, glasses and watch : all of this makes an incredible "Allure".
I love both outfits! It's truly exciting to see a woman who is brave to try combinations from which other women would otherwise shy away. The juxtaposition of the delicate white lace dress with the rough-n-ready army green fatigue jacket & the sexy strappy heels…Fantastic! The matching "pajama" outfit is superb, perfect for hot, muggy summers in Milan. The patterns on the pj might be too much at first, but it works beautifully because the background color in grounded in black…the remaining colors, which are few, are muted and not blaring and ostentatious. And the pattern design is great! The shoes and glasses, and the wonderful confidence & attitude complete the whole beautiful picture!
She's a lovely woman but there's a not of fashion victimism going on here. There seem to be too many trends especially in the first photo. Maybe if she left off the coat or the metallic bag or the chunky sandals she'd escape the charge of trying too hard.
I didn't see the second outfit as PJ's but as an oriental silk suit. I loved it, she has such long lean legs that it works. I like the red toenail and fingernail polish with it. I like white lacey dresses for summer, they work. She makes it slightly tough by wearing the khaki jacket over top. It is exactly the right length.
Dolce e Gabbana made a pj inspired collection last year if i I am not mistaken. When I saw it I thought that it was absolutely unique but quite unstylish to be worn. I thought that whoever bought one piece of it would keep it in the wordrobe as a collector's object. And now…seeing it worn by Vivianna…I am amazed by it. It's classy. It's comfortable and definately romantic. She makes it so real! I am convinced that not all designer clothes are for everyone and that some persons-like Vivianna!- have the inborn elegance to wear everything and make it look amazing!Excellent! PS The first take is great! Mix and perfectly match look!
The first outfit is fabulous, Gap gone Couture! I don't like the second outfit, its adventurous but borderlines on tacky. Too bad, she is a lovely woman with an obviously great sense of style. I think we all have days when we take it a step too far.
Yay! I want to see more women "of a certain age" featured here, (although she's probably just shy of fitting that category.) With all of the figure challenges incumbent with female aging, it gets harder and harder to zero in on fresh looks that express our individuality without looking silly. This woman is long and lean enough to wear pretty much anything. I love the first look–her hair is lovely and free and she has fabulous posture, but I'm going to take off points for the ill-fitting shoes. (Never good to have your toes hanging off the front of your shoes.) What's wonderful to me about the second look is that she's completely owning it–she wears it with authority and without apology. Only a woman who's in charge of her destiny could wear this so well. Brava.
I love that she is wearing a short dress!!!!! her legs are perfect. I am so tired of this weird idea that someone has to be in grade school to show off their legs. Wit does not matter in the least if her knees do not look like they belong to a six year old, they still look perfect.
