I like this. It’s hard to wear a piece that involved without looking very trendy, but she paired it nicely…in some ways not as interesting as it could be, but she definitely knows how to flatter herself and play up that dress. I think it’s beautiful.
Each day I look forward to being inspired by the personalities which shine through the clothing of lucky subjects of the Sartorialist.
My Grandmother alway said to always wear pretty panties when you go out, just incase the wind picks up your skirt..but I will tell my children to always look fabulous just incase the wind brings the Sartorialist your way.
What a beautiful dress! Like she’s wearing a Hermes silk scarf… Her leather accessories and long hair give her a unique Mongolian/Native American look. If she’s not a model, she’s one pretty lay-person!
I can understand your point for the word “exotic,” but why would thinking that she looks like the Disney character Pocahontas be “objectifying” her?? She has the same skin tone and cheekbones as the cartoon depiction. Don’t be so angry, missy.
Gorgeous girl. The dress complements her looks. But the shoes? Oh yeah, they are Louboutins and cost a forture, but they are not flattering. The surprise effect of a dissonance in the outfit wears out quickly.
Forget the stereotypical blonde surfer, here is a true representation of an Australian. Unknown nationality (we’re all originally from somewhere else), fierce femininity, gorgeous taste, at peace with the land that surrounds us. I think your photographs are beautifully conveying Australia, for once, as the land full of surprises and sartorialist delights for which it is.
so i am going to rephrase what i said earlier in this commentary-
sites/photogs like Sart changed the way fashion works and also changed the way we think about ourselves (our outfits).
When it became conceivable that someone could photograph just-any-old-someone just for their outfit, the next obvious cultural phenomenon was not thousands of hipsters standing on the corner at Prince/Mercer waiting for him. We did what all 21st Century reality-show-as-lifers do: we started taking pictures of ourselves and posting them on the internet.
What's interesting to me is that despite the fact that I can and do look at hundreds of "personal style" sites a day, the work of Scott, Garance, Nast and a few others still exists in a category of its own, not because of the looks that are captured as much as the SPIRIT THAT IS CAPTURED. See: this photo.
This is what separates artists from the average documentarian, and why other sites will never make this one less relevant.
I would like to see what this looks like with her standing up… I like the dress, I like the shoes, I think I like the bag, she definitely has attitude and I like that, I'm just not sure about all of it (outfit-wise) together…
I’m pretty sure she’s the store owner of joystores, boutique in Brisbane. Correct me if i’m wrong. She has impeccable taste in style as it reflects the amazing Australian/International designer clothing she sells.
Whow!! My favourite in a long long time. She cannot be Australian! (Have to badger the Aussies). The clothes are sublime, but the best thing is that Vogue could not do a better job of this shot! Her screw you pose, her face. Amazing.
yea yea..”exotic” and “pocohontas” references galore! how ridiculous! love her outfit (on her), love her face structure. not a fan of the shoes actually ( can it be?!) i like natural looks, not high maintenance street walker. BUT she looks good..how does she come up with this???
So chic I love her shoes. She has beautiful skin and hair and looks so powerful yet her lips and eyes look so feminine. I’m glad those who think the Syd photos have nothing on Paris or Milan can see this!!
To PRGirlLondon: “we’re all originally from somewhere else” Be careful… We’re a nation of many origins, yes, but this is Aboriginal land. And in light of the horrendous divide we have in our country, we must never forget our indigenous people and their 40,000+ year prehistory with the continent we now know as Australia. I know your comment wasn’t malicious of course, but please keep it in mind. Peace.
Gorgeous gal. Next time you come to Sydney you should consider spending some more time in the Inner West — Newtown, etc. You've got so many fine shots of eastern-suburbs-type people like this beauty, but the Inner West is full of delightful flashes of stylistic brilliance (amidst the cliches, like anywhere).
I covet everything she has on, plus the sunnies and handbag on the side. Who knew nude fringed ankle boots could go so well with a colourful maxi?! And who knew Sydneysiders (being one myself) could be so stylish?
I LOVE everything about this!! THe greenery in the back, the dash of orange around her neckline, the print, the dress, the pose!! Gotta love how the shoes blend in color with the ground yet the texture and detail make them truly stand out!!
