    I noticed that too, dene. Only in this case, it’s a hybrid of a jumpsuit and drop-crotch pants, which takes it to a whole new level :P

    This woman appears poised and assured with her wonderful mix of rich sapphire and amethyst, gold and pewter. Wow, love this photograph.
    The fluid styling of the outfit takes the scary out of the harem pants. Good thing she appears to be six feet tall.
    What time of day do you shoot? Your lighting is always tender.

    I wasn’t sold on the droppy pants look until now. If you’re gonna do it, this is how it should be done. Great shot!

    Three years ago they were very fashionable in Buenos Aires, apparently the fashion arrived now at Moscow or returned again.

    She is so beautiful, as are the colors, and overall I like the outfit – just not the pants.

    Hate the overall, but those colours! That face! That hair!

    So she looks fabulous anyway:)

    Loved the other pants, but this is a fright to me. I have a thing against jeweltone colors together for some reason. One is enough per outfit.

    Too much like a baby romper….i think the drop crotch look is okay if its punked up or worn tongue in cheek…..but it doesn’t work if you try and pretty it up like this…..wrong fabric, jacket too smart etc………just looks like an almost dress gone wrong……….

    Jumpsuit… noooooooo. But the colors are nice and she is beautiful.

    Is the Moscow vibe a little somber, or is it just me?

    NOOOOO! Hammer pants invaded Moscow!

    Loving the combo of purple and gold though, as well as purple and blue. Nice to know it can be done!

    Yuck. I say no on the pant. But the colors are so lush, and the scarf is riiich. It’s a really beautiful ensem when you ignore the saggy diaper thing going on.

    And I love the shoes too.

    Wow they are not afraid of a drop-crotch pant in Moscow. I’m really feeling it though, and she’s got all the proportions right. These women are all striking in an unconventional way.

    very rare look on Moscow streets. she seems to be ready to go to some party…
    It’s hard to find these looks, good work, Sart!

    I have to say I love the combination of colors and the contrast in the colors of the shoes.

    the pant makes her look like she’s hidden a diaper in there… but otherwise a beautiful, striking outfit!

    Now, this is a killer look! Love the shoes and the draping of the trousers. The gold is great, especially when paired with the blue + purple.

    It’s interesting somehow. I just don’think it flatters her at all.
    But she is pretty and has great hair :]]

    Oh…not those pants again. Surely they look even more unflattering from behind. However, the colors are stunning together, and I do love the shoes.

    To the anonymous commenter who wrote, “I’m tired of people expecting women’s fashion to be about what flatters the figure and shows off the body. It’s very refreshing to see women wearing clothes as art pieces…”: I do notice that a woman like this need not worry so much about flattery. Some of us, however fabulous we are, need more help from our clothes and probably couldn’t do “art” justice.

    Love the colors in the shot – the blue/purple outfit against the green fence; the gold at her hands and feet and gold leaves in the trees at her face.

    the jumpsuit that everyone is referring to is junya watanabe or inspired by. nothing new, and always appropriate when worn by the right person, which is the case here.
    i think that the point is that she, the proportion of her look, and the background make for a great composition as a whole photography-wise.

    Beautiful – on her. This girl could wear anything, clearly.

    Lovely colour combination.
    But why does she have the scarf wrapped around her neck, as if the weather asked for wamth, if she is not going to wear any socks?

    I love that color! Purple is my favorite and this purple just scream at you in a very positive way. But I’m unsure of how much I liked the jumpsuit.

    I don’t like the purple jumpsuit-thing.
    Still, I think she’s very pretty and the outfit is very well put together.
    And I love how she’s wearing blue, gold and purple bangles that match the other clothes exactly!

    Love it, love it. I'm entranced & envious simultaneously.

    The green tint is from her suede (or velvet?) shoes.

    I love how the jewel tones work together with the gold bag and chunky bangles but the outfit just seems strangely structured esp the jumpsuit…

    just wanted to leave a bit of an observational comment about the comments. I find that when judging outfits from, say, NY, or Paris, people simply judge the outfit, how the person is wearing it.. etc. However, when I read people’s comments about all the photos from Moscow, a lot of cultural (often misguided or ignorant) references, attitudes, expecations come to affect how people see the outfit.
    Oh and by the way, drop crotch is very in right now here in Sydney too, it’s been on the runways since the fall – hence WHY you are seeing in in Moscow – not because like some put it, Russians have “an eastern infulence”, that’s a bit laughable.

    I agree. It is sad for people to constantly look for clothing that makes their bodies appear to be different then they are. If all you want is to look like you have longer legs, a smaller waist, and thinner hips, then put on a pair of stilts, spanx and a corset and be done with it. It is much more pleasant to see the clothing as self expression and art. Not some scam to make women more sexy to their prospective mates.
