    Art or fashion, i'm not sure what is is. But I love the picture and her carisma.

    I <3 the trench and the shoes, and the way the motorcycle plastic shield frames her and the traffic sign behind :)

    I love the idea of matching your clothes to your Vespa. I have a red one and this has me thinking. Also, I always respect a well-loved well-used scooter. This is very creative.

    'Those feathers in her hair. It's witchcraft.' She might have substituted the feathers with a beautiful headwrap but it is still mesmerizing. Frank might still be right.

    Actually, she looks much more french than italian… In many ways, italian women – with a small exception for a few from Milan and from the deep south – are not as elegant as the majority of people all around the world probably think. Italy has lost freshness, our imaginations has got poorer and so the shops windows, that merely advertise the brands. I live in Rome, but I do often travel to France, and the comparison brings me to say that we've no more idea of what elegance is (the best things I wear do come from the flea market).

    I love everything about this one. Well done.

    It's a close 2nd to my fave of all time…that long haired red head lady on a bicycle in NY's Meatpacking (not sure abt the neighborhood…) ..I think it was included in your book.

    Style is when the clothes are incidental to the life, when the clothes say, " Oh, this? Yes, I like it, but I have some place I'm off to…"

    Lovely photo.

    I adore Vespas but still get nervous when I have to get on my friend's scooters.

    I don't think I will be buying one anytime soon. I'm too scared to drive in Rome.

    Whitout any pleasure I have to agree with the comment of "carola"
    It isn't probably that she is an italian woman. We've lost the necessary "ironia" in the way of dressing that could bring us to this ensemble

    really like the combination of colors in this pic

  79. KateSouth

    I love that she doesn't compromise style simply because she is riding on a Vespa. The color coordination between the dress and scooter is lovely as well.

    I would do alot for those shoes no doubt. Sart, this is my second all time fave, beside the girl with the black t shirt tucked into a blues strapless dress. Truly, as another poster commented you've really found your voice with the camera. Well done.

    She looks fab – so stylish. I am always envious of women who can work the headscarf: I put them on and then immediately take them off. I'm just too self-conscious to carry this look off.

    Fantastic photograph! The arrow is a great little "extra" ;-) She gives off a perfect combination of extroversion and quietness, strength and delicacy. The colours, the ballsy mix of headscarf, bold pants, heels with the practical trench… she is fabulous. – Emma
