It’s because of the way the person is captured in this photo. Not JUST because of her (beautiful!) outfit.
I like this one. I think you should make more ‘moving’ / ‘action’ photo’s just be one step ahead of all the other million Sartorialist-related-blogs. (Of course, I’m not telling you what you should do….just an idea!! :))
Definitely one of your best photos ever. The oversized scarf works on her small frame (probably because it is tucked into the belt and therefore conforms to her body) and the hat covering her eyes is just downright sexy! I think I’m in love…
She is so petite like a smaller Audrey Hepburn. It is hard to tell if her feet and waist are exceptionally small, her hat and scarf are exceptionally huge or all of the above. She does look smart though!
This look seems like it’d be hard to pull off, but my goodness does she do a remarkable job! The hat and scarf are giant in proportion to the rest of her body. It would be neat to see this outfit with a slimmer-fitting pair of pants to really accentuate the comical-but-charming oversized proportions of the hat and scarf.
I have to disagree with most of your writers. Did she just escape from the upholstery shop? She is dwarfed by the amount of fabric, the huge print, and the oversized hat. I don’t think it works at all.
She knows how to wear a hat. It’s situated atop her head just right. She knows how to wear a scarf. That humungus swath of fabric is wrapped and cinched with the belt just perfectly. The colors look great, the shoes look great. She must’ve looked in the mirror before leaving and cooly and confidently thought, oh yes, this works.
I would love to see the pants without the coat covering half of them. They look very interesting. I love the overall outfit, but it works so well because of her petite figure. The contrast with the huge scarf and the small waist are eye catching
What a beautiful woman, not to mention original in her taste (while still being tasteful). The hat and shoes are especially stunning, though I love the scarf and coat as well. They make for a fantastic shape.
It IS oversized but somehow it works and that’s all part of the charm. It’s one of those photos you can look at over and over. The muted tones of that very tailored trench, the pattern on that lovely, billowy blanket of a scarf.
Most of all, I love her face – the shadow of the brim covering her eyes.
She’s like a modern Girl Friday with Bogart in her wake.
oh, beautiful – one of my faves ever. Incredible silhouette, from *that* hat to the boots. And then, after you recover from the chicness of it all, you look closer and HOW GORGEOUS IS HER FACE!! Love it – especially in motion.
I loove this. Seeing a petite woman striding out and making a statement is marvellous. As a small woman I am so afraid with fashion – cautious that I will look like I am playing dress ups in my mother’s wardrobe, worried about how everything seems to “hang” rather that “fit”. Yay her.
once again i thought what an incredible talented photographer (manual and artistic) you are. i love your site not only for the stylisch people you find but also for the stylisch way of showing them in the right spot. thank you.
nope… too much.. i love the scarf,i love the shoes, the trousers… but itÂ´s too much. first: the hat should go. that would do wonders. also, i think she looks too slefcouncious. itÂ´s as of sheÂ´s looking for feedback, and that reflects in her outfit.. too much. but one thing, sart: i donÂ´t like these staged photos of yours. shoot real people, come on! not semi interesting norwegian models, like the other day. please!!!!!
Inspiring. This outfit had my mind reeling of how I can recreate it with my own wardrobe. She looks so elegant and has that je ne sais quoi that is so hard to achieve. Incredible. Beautiful shot too..perfect motion to capture the feel of the outfit.
Great photo!!! My question….is this just some random New Yorker? It looks great and her fashion is incredible. Love the suede fedora with the vintage rose colored jacket. Very soft and romantic colors. Very in right now. Great photo again!!! XOXO http://www.ahauteaparty.blogspot.com
I never would have guessed that the world’s largest scarf on one of the tiniest of women could look so chic. She looks like a writer in the late 1930′s who would send Dorothy Parker into anaphylactic shock.
