    What’s the name of that Indian henna tattoo on her hand?

    She looks great in black, … how can you go wrong with such a gorgeous model

    This is a nice slihouette but the matching button-strap detail (what is that called?) gathering both the sleeves AND the shorts is too cute-not in a good way. It almost gives a childish look to the outfit- like she’s wearing a playsuit or something (which I guess she is, in a way). I’d say one or the other would be preferable to the “matching set”. While I’ve seen this detail on sleeves many times I don’t think I’ve ever seen it on shorts. I like it on these- not as bulky as the sleeve treatment.

    When I first saw her hand, I thought that it was veiny and disgusting, but then I took a closer look and it was actually a nice henna! haha.

    The henna tattoos are called “mehendi”– pronounced
    ‘me’ (as in “many”), ‘hen’ (like the bird), dee (with a soft ‘d.’)

    I love the look, esp. in LA, but I hope she’s just really young and not too, too thin from dieting. Maybe it’s just the way she’s standing. Ach, LA freaks me out. Anyway, she’s gorgeous and has a lot of style.

    She looks gorgeous, and I agree that her hair is just outstanding. Regarding the sort of playsuit look to her outfit that someone commented on…she’s at the pool! I think it especially goes well there. Perhaps if she were out to eat or something it might look a bit off (but maybe not).

    Although LA as a city isn’t my favorite, this shot is refreshing over the usual city shots in that there are sunny skies and and you can tell she’s outside! Just lovely.

    her henna tatoo and fringy haircut makes the look. i really like the sleeves, but i think black is too severe for the sunny poolside. if that were an all white outfit, it’d be perfect. black makes her look uncomfortably hot.

Ahhh, jealous of the sunny skies and laid back attitude. It’s ok.

    People need to expand their thinking about LA fashion! What most people see are people from Hollywood and the Westside tanorexics … the eastside of LA – Silverlake, Loz Feliz,Eagle Rock, Echo Park – is where you’ll see a more eclectic style

    I’d say she looks super-LA. The only part that might make her look more NY style (but not myself) would be that she’s wearing all black maybe. But I think the black looks especially good with her shade of hair.

    Its funny that people keep saying she looks New York. Why, because she is wearing black?? The skimpy shorts, the perfect trendy hair, huge shades extreme skinnyness, the henna, the super blue pool with the palm trees…. she could not be more LA. The shot looks like a cover of LA magazine. But it looks good on her.

    pretty much anytime it’s the summer, LA runs as fashion king, and in the winter, fall, and spring, the award goes to NYC, but this girl looks 100% LA, which is a FANTASTIC city for fashion, but if you don’t know the cityscape, you’ll never know where to find it.

    LA is a city where people avoid being in public, but crave attention. The hottest people with the greatest clothes are in secret clubs and behind tinted windows, but every once in a while one of the elite slip into the public eye and haute coutour is revealed.

    Beautiful, but I have to disagree about the hair being a great summer look. I’ve had bangs in the summer. Not fun at all. It looks ridiculous wet and even worse windblown from a convertible. Not to mention the sweaty forehead. But, it looks stunning on her of course.

I believed he wandered the fashionable streets of the world & happened upon the beautiful people with fabulous style & shot them then & there… why did karina ask cc to "bring" outfits & meet her at the pool? was this a photo shoot of the traditional variety or an impromptu session? i'm such a fan of this bog…please tell me my initial assumptions were correct!
