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).
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
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.
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
