Texture always adds coolness to a small woman. Because her face doesn’t try hard at all to be beautiful (but is), the combo of luxurious clothing + born this way gorgeousness and thinness actually works. Unlike for women who try both things, if that makes sense
Love her turban. Love how you photograph.
I wonder if you could get some shots of what the Occupy Wallstreet Protestors are wearing. What does one wear to a protest? The protest is the most visible event happening in NYC right now. I think it would be interesting.
The photo is magnificent, rich and textural..the face is stunning, the color of the turban is powerful, but the turban is slacking in material substance…it looks scrawny next to the other pieces. Or maybe just unfinished…earrings would help? Letting her hair go, with a headband might have been a better idea.
A fan of yours since 2006, but this is my first comment.
I’ve often thought: you’re the best out there, not just for capturing great style, but because you give a glimpse into people’s souls.
I’m always left wanting more: who is this person? What’s her story? Does she have a blog?
I could see why some wouldn’t want to provide this info, but surely many do.
Have you thought about this angle?
I think this foto is really impressive. She carries her self with pride and strength. The contrast between the blue an black really enhances that attitude. She reminds me of an African queen. Simply beautiful:)
This lass has legs that go on forever: that’s the good news.
The bad news is that if you want to wear a turban, make it a real regal-looking one. This particular one makes her look like she stepped out of the shower not too long ago and forgot to whip something off.
Her shoes are a bit too chunky big for someone as slight of frame as her. And the mud stuck on her right shoe makes this an odd picture indeed.
Diversity makes the world go round, though. Lots of folks here like her style. But I would agree with Cleo. This one is a bit off.
An absolutely incredible synthesis of jade and aquamarine monochrome enlivened by paradisiacal prints neutralized by beige and black and replete with a glare and a hand-clasp that leaves no casualties.
I love a photo that makes me wonder about the subject’s life – who she is, what she does, what sort of place she lives in. I find myself creating a mental life for the person based on a single image. I have the same feeling when I see a portrait from another era in an art gallery.
