Bang on with the proportions of each of her accessories…right down to the bangles.
P.S. This a great working example for, ahem, “women of a certain size” who are always reading about how we should wear “big” things. It sounds SO counter-intuitive but again this is a PERFECT example of how it actually works. Bella!
Now this is a grand lady. She has dressed in a style that fits her . Nice that you have chosen someone like her.It gives hope to us all that donÂ´t fit the model category.I n fact her look is very stylish. There is simply nothing IÂ´change in her looks.Well done Sart!
love the “real” woman but the outfit, overall look, trends…so blah, as someone else said cliche. that dress envelopes her in a horrendous way, and the shoes are too chunky with the sack-yness of the frock…
Beautiful! The woman, the clothes, her shape and size… now THIS is a tribute to femininity! Sart, I read your site many times a day and I’m glad to see you aren’t exclusively shooting size 0 girls. I hope this is a sign of things to come!
her outfit makes her look a lot fatter than she actually is, bc the black on black makes it hard to distinguish her waist from the cardigan’s shape. her youth and slimness make her able to carry it off but anyone older or bigger would look dowdy.
the shoulders and most of all, the cut of the sleeves (of the cardigan?) make the outfit unbalanced. i will give points for the cut of the neck. her jewellery is balanced with her shoes, that’s a good thing, but perhaps she doesn’t need bracelets on both hands, its a bit much for her delicate face.
I love that she’s not hanging her bits and pieces out. She is perfection in a flowy black dress. I want to either be her or be her best friend. And her hair is simple and interesting. my favorite shot yet!
While I appreciate the comments about how it’s good to see a variety of body shapes, I think their preponderance with regards to this particular photo point out some of the drawbacks of these flowy dresses! This woman isn’t “big” at all! I’m pretty sure she’s quite thin and shapely (and also pretty tall)! The thing is that, except on people who are really exceptionally slender, a dress with so little shape makes the whole body look a little bit larger, even when it isn’t, and fails to highlight those parts — like the limbs or the waist — that often trigger our judgements about a person’s “size.” (Not that this should be the first point of judgement for most people, but it often is, unfortunately.)
All that said, though, she looks awesome, put together, stylish, and smooth, and she does a very good job of wearing a style that maybe isn’t quite as flattering as it often seems to be! I’d wear that dress too if I thought I could look as stylish and self-possessed in it as she does!
