Her camera is amazine! I have it and love it (if it’s the Leica D-LUX 3/Lumix LX2) . Also, her jewelry is very nice.
I think it’s so passe for whoever/whatever designer to do chunky studded accessories, waaay after the punks did in the ’80s, then again in the late ’90s, then after Burberry last year. It’s too late! How about discovering/pioneering a subculture from the beginning instead of ripping off water downed icons from not even that long ago!
I like the colors and shapes, but — someone please explain to me the appeal of this season’s ankle-muffler sandal. I’m not necesarily opposed to it, I just don’t get it. It’s one of those fashions that seems to be deliberately ugly and unflattering.
Compare the ankle-muffler with the fashion-forward mini-trend of high-rise jeans, a few months back. High wasited jeans (so widely despised) actually (to my mind) flatter the waist & hips, if not the bottom, of the wearer and (to my way of thinking) are more flattering to most women’s figures than the inevitably muffin-top-inducing low-rise jeans that ruin so many otherwise pretty figures.
I guess, what I’m getting at, is, Aren’t our clothes supposed to be our body’s FRIEND, not its enemy? Don’t we want our garments to flatter our curves and our shoes to flatter our legs? Why would we wear pants that create a belly-bulge? Or shoes that stumpify our legs?
Fashion sometimes mystifies me. Sometimes, though, pictures don’t tell the whole story. Sometimes garments work better on a body in motion. Sometimes just seeing the thing in person helps you to understand its appeal. Is the ankle-muffler supposed to flatter the leg with its contrasting chunkiness? Is it one of those fashions that’s supposed to inspire envy (“She — and only she –can get away with that ugly footwear, because her legs are so insanely beautiful that nothing can ruin them”)? -Victoria
i couldn’t pull off that outfit and maybe she’s wearing every “fad” of this season, but she looks amazing. and that’s including those unfortunate shoes. she’s dressed perfectly for her figure and style.
is she taking a photo of herself? if so, that’s a great sense of humor.
But that in itself is the joy of of being young; being able to wear trends even if it is for a short time. You’re supposed to have fun with your youth and the mash-up here screams “IT Girl” and not, “Rich Asian Tourist” as is the usual in Milan.
to style noir: I totally agree with you on this one. she is just so gorgeous. I absolutely LOVE this look. So what if it’s costumey and trendy? Since when is looking fashionable a crime? Obviously she has loads of cash, and this is probably what I’d wear if I had that much moeny and were in a playful mood (ok, probably not to go sight-seeing, but I’d still wear it). to constants: actually asian women are usually the most fashionable here in europe… i live in Berlin and the asian women always stand out from the crowd. I love their attitude and their playful approach towards fashion. Plus, they’re usually drop dead gorgeous and uber-cool. I truly envy them.
I read alot of comments that mentions that her outfit is so “Carrie Bradshaw” or she knocked off Carrie Bradshaw or she is wearing every trend of the season. I think most have forgotten that designers get their inspiration (yes even Patricia Field) from the streets and everyday people like this young lady. The so-called Carrie belt from the movie has been around for ages… just because someone is wearing it doesn’t mean that they’re just trying to copy Carrie’s look…for all we know, it may be the other way around.
Anyway, just my two-cents… I happen to think she looks fierce!
I really can’t stop myself from going back to this picture! What I missed earlier and find most intriguing is just how young she is. She could possibly still be in her late teens or early 20′s and it’s amazing how you can feel the confidence oozing off of the page. Mad props!
First of all, Carrie Bradshaw’s taste is way too conservative to be wearing Martin Margiela shoes since she’s into Blahnik. Apples and oranges! This girl is not only pretty but also she’s got style to be wearing a bubble dress and FAB shoes! Carrie Bradshaw she is NOT! Major EWWW on CB anyways!
this isn’t my kind of look, but you always manage to catch something else besides the subject’s attire. this time its the backround woman’s orange & blue floral top next to the blue jacket and orange dress. very nice coupling.
I, too, love the Margiela shoes…I especially loved them in the nude color. She’s young and fresh in the orange and blue. And to all the UF Gator fans who commented, I simply say War Eagle! They’ll all understand.
She’s gorgeous and takes risks. I love the orange. It seems to me that she’s changed the dynamics of the outfit to something more modern by adding the contrasting chunky belt and those shoes. Not sure what it means, except she’s not afraid to mix it up, down to her backpack.
Damned it, I should get those Margiela shoes when it hit Barney’s the first time. I was hoping they gonna be on sale the beige one!!! BUMMER!!! They sold out everywhere. I’m dying to get half shoes half boots look this season, so HOT!!! I’ve seen a lot of this kind of shoes/sandals in Brasil as well. I don’t really care about her outfits, but I think the contrast colors are really catching in the photo. Great summer look. I think she looks hot.
I went to China eralier this year and EVERYBODY (girls, that is) wears those kind of shoes!
Flats, heels or platforms.
I love them, the soft slouchy leather around the ankles.
Unfortunately, my Scandinavian Viking-feet were too big in China (you should see how the girls in the shops giggled, pointed and talked about my size 40) so I ended up buying different styles and colours for my daughter instead!
