A very cool mood contrast between the photo below and this one. I myself prefer to wear neutrals and more enjoy grey days, so while this photo doesn’t seem particular ‘somber’ to me, I can grasp that juxtaposition as I scroll down the page.
Does anyone eat in Paris anymore??? Besides being hauntingly thin, I love the bag (it sort of makes the whole shot) – that and the boots. I don’t know how you do it Sartorialist, but you always find the perfect shot to inspire conversation. Love!
She looks like an off duty rock chic, circa David Bowie’s thin white duke (which in my book means she looks like an angel). And I love the whole thing, apart from those dreadful shoes: they’re big, but certainly not clever. Too big, too high and too much like a couple of torture instruments. Aren’t we over this look yet? Flats would have served her so much better – this is a relaxed look.
Excellent photo. The background is out-of-focus, so the traffic frames the face, but doesn’t compete with it. The colors are artistically muted, with clothes, street, sidewalk, vehicles and jersey barrier black/gray/white, and bag, shoes and leaves a woodsy brown. I’m not sure about that unseen cyclist whose stray wheel intrudes on the scene. It seems an intrusion on the composition. On the other hand, the diagonal of sidewalk/barrier/leaves connects with that of the crosswalk to point to him, granting him a hidden importance. The scene is given a bit of mystery.
I’ve gone on a bit much, but in my defense, I don’t ever see compliments on this site about the merits of the art, except for comments about the model or the clothes. Scott Schuman is a superb photographer.
She looks very healthy to me. In this day and age, when obesity is the NUMBER ONE health problem in the United States and England, there is absolutely no harm in encouraging people to be thin. Look around you. Especially at the children. its heartbreaking how overweight they are. A washed out model is hardly an expert. Ask any doctor, and they will tell you that being thin is very healthy. A very small number of people are anorexic. Maybe we should worry about the OVER 60 percent of the people that will develop type 2 diabetes, heart disease, circulation trouble, joint pain and much more because they think its “real” and “normal” to have rolls of fat. I have seen many pictures of her. She is obviously a healthy, active woman. And while you go on using the word teen, remember that she isn’t a child of fourteen, either. She is 18. I see plenty University freshmen who are HEALTHY looking like that. And may I add that my cousin, who we all encouraged to be confident even though she was a bit bigger has now developed type 2 diabetes. If I had known just how untrue all this propoganda about bigger being healthy was, maybe i would have encouraged her to diet.
Well said, Martine.
The odds overwhelmingly say that genetics and metabolism will kick in within a decade or two and she will struggle to stay under the size 12 or so that constitutes today’s average. She will still be amazing, though. People should stop obsessing about other people and worry about themselves.
