O.K., I get it…you’re trying to “stick it to me” with all this real fur! I guess maybe the pendulum has indeed swung the other way, at least for now…but I still think it’s gross! Great outfit, BTW. Hopefully, the coat is actually vintage.
When I first looked at the picture I thought she was maybe forty. On first glance. On second glance I realised she was very young (and beautiful)! I love the outfit, it seems a bit old for her, but I love it all the same. The layers of different and complimenting fabrics are so sophisticated and look luxurious.
My first thought when looking at this photo was, wow!!! She has a beautiful face, first of all, and her coat is fabulous. I’m actually usually not a big fan of fur (here in Chicago people don’t usually wear it well) but it looks absolutely fabulous on her. Well done!
Let’s face it — fake fur always looks cheesy. Either wear real fur, or don’t wear fur at all. From what I understand, our European sisters, especially those from Russia and the northern countries, wear fur out of what they truly believe to be necessity. I’m not taking a position either way, but I do think that fake fur almost always looks lousy.
As for this girl, she deserves the corona, the halo, that surrounds her. She’s impeccable. And I’ve never seen a collection of basic browns work so well on anyone. Maybe it’s her dark hair that brings it all together.
She’s delightful, and her clothing is delightful – they work together splendidly.
She has quite a face, pretty, sure, but observant, amused, wry – whatever, full of character. Then this outfit that just dances.. the coat swings, the purse swings, the hat in hand could be raised at any moment.
Excellent form with the strong shoulders, swinging skirt, tightly belted waist, lilting step… while she’s looking you in the eye through your camera.
Smart, feminine look. I’d sex it up a bit somehow…tossling the hair, shortening the skirt, wearing sheer tights?
I prefer the pictures in the old format so that when you click on them you’re allowed a closer view. I’m curious about the white at the neckline, what she’s carrying in her hand. Could that be a hat? That would sex up the look a bit.
woooooow, she’s gorgeous!! so many times, especially in NYC, i see women, and men for that matter, who look like they are trying much too hard to be stylish and look pretty. but this woman looks so natural…i actually believe her!!! simply stunning. and i want her coat :)
This outfit is so sophisticated! I adore the trench with the fur lapels. Fur is such a good conductor when it comes to battling cold air. I love how she has a belt around her hips (wish it was a little darker) to show some emphais. Love her color choice of leggings and her booties! Cute! :3
I don't know where to begin! I have come back to this photo several times over the past few days just in awe . . . I think what I love most is the way you've captured her movement — of course the clothes are gorgeous and so is she, but the composition & sense of body-in-motion in sunlight = magical. Bravo.
Hmm.. could this be Roman Polanski’s “Chinatown” being channeled here? I have to agree with the other commenters that her bag is a bit lacking, but I’m more than willing to forgive the transgression given the immaculate styling of everything else- the proportions, the balance of color and texture, and the quiet grace of it all put together. LOVE!
