I dig her style. The first – I especially love the shoes; the second, the dress with rugged platform boots. She’d fit right in, in Harajuku.
Her stance brings back a beloved memory of my father; he was the family photographer on summer vacations. He sometimes stood in the most ridiculous manner to get the shot; legs splayed wide in a stance, or twisted and hunched over to shoot a chipmunk on the ground. I guess I learned from him – I’ve laid down on a dirt road to get JUST the shot of the sunset sky if necessary. I’m sure you understand this …. :)
Love the hair (of course)! And really digging the second look. But most of all, I like her stance. Sure, it’s pragmatic–she’s bracing herself to take a steady-handed photo. But in a world where many women apparently feel compelled to stand like pigeon-toed pretzels & minimize the amount of space they occupy, it’s great to see a young woman standing strong and firm (but not desperately attention-seeking).
She’s so Carey Mulligan in the second picture. Today I’ve read something, I don’t remember where, it said that short hair allows much more changes than long one on contrary of what most of people may think. This two pictures express that perfectly.
Despite the odd clothing choice, I noticed her power stance and focus behind the camera first before her wardrobe. She’s a rare example of one who can wear strange clothes without the clothes wearing her.
