i will be honest and say that i am ambivalent when it comes to extreme hair colour for working professionals (anna piaggi is a mighty exception). maybe due to such a close reference to youth or just adding a sense of freedom to admittedly, the very constrained professional world. then again, free it’s one thing but when working in such an image driven environ, hair colour says alot. i’ve seen some awful dye jobs emerging from the best salons and it has cost people gigs.
however, her colour selection does work and well. it compliments her face, eyes and and personality. i wonder if she had it done over at christophe robin cute cute place.
Her hair is like fire! But a great match to the windowpane in her jacket. There’s something about redheads that make the rest of their outfits so vibrant. (refer back to the Sept 22 pic of the woman on the BMX bike). Amazing pics.
i immediately thought of ‘The Devil is a Woman’ then couldn’t remember if that is the title of a film, song or book? (help me someone!) her hair is fabulous and a work of art – reading some of the previous comments – anyone who can pull off dramatic hair color that successfully should be applauded and celebrated, not criticized and derided. her clothes are subtle under-statements, the way the shrunken wool jacket curls around her torso and arms. i would have loved to have seen her shoes or boots… Thanks for another treat, Sartorialist, you’re the most interesting social commentator on the web.
At Versace, which was last night, I saw Emmanuel Alt from Paris Vogue. It was our first chance to speak all week. I told her Scott Schuman had done a nice picture of her on his blog The Sartorialist, and that he had called her âthe impossible Emmanuel Alt.â
The Devil is a Woman is a 1935 romance film by Josef von Sternberg, adapted from the 1898 novel La Femme et le pantin by Pierre LouĂżs. The film was based on a screenplay by John Dos Passos, and stars Marlene_Dietrich. (wikipedia)
I like they grey in her jacket,which looks a bit like itÂŽs homemade .Looking closer-is she wearing extremely low waist slacks? The belt is awfully low.The color of her hair is artificial and so it is.A smile instead of a grin would be better.
I can’t see this picture anything other than art with her red hair against the various shades and hues of grey / black.
A comment on style – what I find surprising is her flame red hair, which to me is a very feminine / dramatic touch to her look is supported or paired with a rather masculine jacket, with masculine dark colours.
A juxtaposition of hot and cold, woman and man, feminine and masculine.
This outclasses everything. In the world. Ever. It's the new Mona Lisa. It's done. We can pack up. Go home. It's a wrap. The pinnacle of an era. Centuries from now, when all designers and collections will be long forgotten, this image will live on and be revered by generation upon generation as one of the wonders of the world. If I had to choose something to send into space that would represent the very best of human civilization it would be this picture. If there were an oscar for fashion, this would win best picture, best performance and best costume design. I think I made my point.
isn’t she gorgeous! I love this photograph! She looks elegant and comfortable. This is the type of look (“type”?) that I think many Sartorialist watchers find inspiring and captivating; always returning!
