what's up with this picture. i'm (almost) speechless. the shapes, colors, textures, proportions….it's all about the WEARER….her skin-tone…those gams! timeless. i'm usually more drawn to more zazzy, directional schtuff but wow. not overly embellished, she looks so unencumbered. the warm shoe with the gold watch makes it for moi. I'd like to come back as her…
I love her outfit, that amazing ruffled skirt especially, but what I really love is the photography. The rule of thirds is always a great technique haha, and I always love how the background is slightly less out of focus, making the focal point stand out. I really like it.
Personally, what I believe worthy of praise are the blue dust sheets enshrining the construction site behind the earth-toned facade. The blue looks 3 dimensional on screen and almost within the lady's grasp.
Oh yeah, I nearly forgot. I dislike how her massive shoes throw her feminine proportions out of whack.
the studded shirt is way cool. I just received your book! Even my husband loves going through it with me, and picks out men's attire that he wants to model his personal style after! I presume this image will be going into Sartorialist II… ?? I hope so! Though I would like more text/ descriptions of your subjects; who people are makes their style.
I know I've been watching the Style Network too much because the first thing I noticed about this attractive young woman is her SHOES and not only how good they look but what a struggle it must be to spend a day in them.
the silky fabrics , colors she's wearing, Taxi and the Newyorker background reminds me of Gena Rowlands in ''Gloria'' Gena Rowlands was running all the time around the city stopping Taxis & shooting mobs. Her 80s wardrobe was composed of wonderful palleted Silk ensembles designed by Emanuel Ungaro (Beige, Rose, Burgundy, Black & deep Blue). worth a watch !
So often I am far more conservative then a lot of the fashion here. This look to me couldn't be more perfect. There is nothing in that on girl that isn't just right. Her legs, wow. I'd wear that entire look in a minute. It's edgy yet classic.
The looks is beautiful but the Shoes worry me ? rarely have I seen someone who was able to be graceful walking in heels that high, even for a short distance. I think* here is a beautiful body and what a pity they can not run or even walk fast.
This picture juxtaposed against the picture of the Italian woman above reminds me of th estriking difference between European and American fashion. I have noticed from your photographs that European, especially French and Italian women, seem to have more of an ease with dressing while American women seem to almost be using clothing as some form of combat gear. A kind of armor. I can see how the difference in social climates affects how we wear our clothing. It is interesting that now fashion and trends are global however style is still provincial. As you say, it's not what you wear but how you wear it. Bravo for capturing that. You are not just a photographer but a wonderful style teacher.
fantastic! this picture makes so curious and let so much imagination open in because that no one knows the identity of the person this gives a high voltage to the photo and the blue building is so necessary for the center: the watch
keeee-rikey! those shoes. they're almost stilts. sorry, dont like. i agree with one post, that they make her body look right out of proportion, instead of what heels are meant to do, put it into proportion. i think her slight frame and tapered short skirt dont help.
beautiful shot tho'. i like the one yellow line to her right…it adds a surreal touch, along with the blue christo building thingo
Louboutins that tie around the ankle somehow or any booties are actually relatively comfy, it's the pumps and slingbacks that are sadistic! I love the light here! And I love her look, from shoes to hair. I love it when your photos make me envious!
This picture represents every day life in fashion. I love how it's focused on her and not the cars it shows the potential of her outfit. To me it shows the skirts ruffles blow me away The jacket stuns me with the character of the buttons. The purse is black and astonishing. The shoe make the whole outfit for me with there height.
It feels it is a photoshoot…well she can for sure support the awesome outfit…Shoes and bag are really expensive – I am guessing the others as well and not all of can afford it but is nice to see money to go with taste!
I like her look but you can see that all clothes costs quite a money… I don't mind but when I see real look and chic but no expensive brands I am much more impressed. Common! How many people can afford this look :-) but still it's very inspiring and that's what I like about this blog you can see top brands and also a street style without expensive clothes :-)
I love her look. The details on the skirt and top are exquisite and amps up the neutral colors. However, I am a New Yorker and our streets are not made for those heels, especially since we do a lot of walking. I almost broke my ankle with 4 inch heels once, though I have been wearing heels since I was 15.
