    I want to know where all the fashionistas get their leather jackets from… although her expression and hair are what really make the outfit.

    Very nice! The hair, her expression, the leater jacket, and the way she is crossing her arms, with just a little pouty lip. I like the way the light is catching her hair on the left side also. Good one.

    I can honestly say that you going to russia has saved you in my opinion… I was starting to get bored by the site (seriously the girl in the short denim shorts, we could open up people magazine to see that, though the composition was fantastic with the accidental broadway waiting in the wings pattern) This image, love the attitude (and the graphic designer, and the sculptor) and I think the russian girls have shown us they know how to do short hair without looking all cheesy I wanna be a celebrity… Perhaps I simply feel like theres waaay to much exposure everywhere else but I can definitely say, contrary to expectations, these russian girls know how to blow you away… but be subtle about it. No gaudy recognisable brands, no cookie cutter looks (as far as I know, if they all look like this then good for them!) only strong styling with strong attitudes but completely palatable and never overwhelming.

    A Russian spy… circa 1920… I love it. Helps that she’s gorgeous of course, but it’s still so classic, simple and cool.

    The hair and that jacket!

    I’m pretty sure… that jacket is basic perfection.

    the success of this composition relies on the juxtaposition of her face and jacket. the style is not forward, but the tough girl look on a sweet looking girl [who happens to be a little pissed] is definitely working.

    Georgeous girl. Great jacket, but I have a feeling that those “Hammer Pants” are below. As long as they are out of frame, this is a great look!

    Vroom Vroom – peaches and cream in leather and zippers. So very charming.

    but Sart, I am beginning to wonder;

    Are there any men in Russia?
    Do any of them wear clothes?
    Would love to see a few.

  19. penelope

    November 1, 2008 at 3:28 pm

    Love her jacket! Those zippers!

    Ps/ She looks kinda, nonchalent though; I would be kinda afraid to approach her to request if I could take a picture of her!

    these russian girls are all incredible.

    this is crap. it’s a totally cheap-looking coat. what’s wrong with you people? this is an accident, not style. I conclude that most of the negative comments are censored out, because I can’t believe the overwhelming response to this style as actually being good is a true reflection of your viewer’s tastes.

    My girlfriend used to wear her little black leather motorcycle jacket with her arms crossed just like that, with that look, when she wanted to talk— we’d go for rides in Hollywood…

    What an eye! Thats an amazing photo – an eye opener even for a Moscovite like me.

    I would guess (and don’t ask me why) that she is not a fashion follower at all … if you look from stereotypical Moscow trendy/posh perspective…

    I would say that quite possibly she normally dresses in a very kitch way. Maybe even cheap. Or boring. Very simple girl. Doesn’t read Vogue or Bazaar. Nothing like that at all.

    But – and thats amazing – here she’s got a natural style and looks like a star.

    Hats off to the photographer!

    A few weeks ago I walked into a Russian deli (in Vancouver, WA) and the man behind the counter began speaking to me in Russian. Now that you’ve been posting from Moscow…I’m going to take that as a compliment.

    Yes! I’ve always loved this look!! This was my foolproof club outfit in the eighties – black leather jacket over a skirt or dress…I hope she’s wearing a skirt or dress…please tell me it wasn’t another deadly case of Hammer-time.

    Gorgeous photo!!!

    This is definitely a type I remember from a trip to the late, unlamented USSR in the late 1980′s. Hard as nails and beautifully coifed and made up.

    This is funny but being a Muscovite, I don’t see any badass attitude in her looks. She has this typical Russian contemplating look that Westerners take for aggression or badass-ness. Overall, she looks like a girl next door to me – not that it’s bad at all.
