Something about this image brings to mind the work of Diane Arbus. Perhaps it’s the bright red lipstick. I want to know the back story. In terms of her personal style, the black jacket and bag are ho-hum and I do not like the bird’s nest atop her head.
Cigarettes may be gross and unhealthy in practice, but in theory they are still chic. She looks fantastic with that cigarette. In fact, it gives her lip color and hairstyle that edge, touch of vintage, the je ne sais quoi that otherwise I’m not sure would have been possible in Scott’s capture of this moment. The cigarette makes it.
