    Love her dress, bag and little cardigan and even the colour of her shoes, I just can't stand the toe thing. why make your feet look like pigs' trotters? albeit gold pigs' trotters.

    She is beautiful! And I love her shoes – I have been obsessed with these hoof shoes since I visited Goa in 2005. All the hippies there were wearing them and I thought hey were really fun.

    There is something about the shoes that makes me uncomfortable. Perhaps some "repressed" feeling?

    Beautiful dress. But the shoes are not that attractive. Also, are those bra straps showing? Maybe she should wear a strapless bra with that dress. Or go without!


    October 15, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    The Vuitton is terrific, but not the dress.. its cute, but nothing Wow

    I must say the lady looks real classical amidst the backdrop!

    cute, fresh.
    the tabi shoes are an fun, unexpected touch. obviously they're a bit tongue-in-cheek, ie., weird footwear worn by those who don't take themselves too seriously. i like that!

    The shoes look great on her, the gold really works. Nice dress.
    Like her wistful expression too.

    The camel toe shoes are on the same level as Crocs in my book.

    The dress is pretty, but this look as a whole is just plain sloppy. Are those bra straps or part of the dress? Blegh.

    I'm totally confused by this post…to me there are several things wrong with this outfit. The bra straps ruin the dress, which I think is already a tad boring, and the shoes are terribly unflattering.

    Can't get on board with this one, sorry!

  42. Gil

    Pretty and feminine but there is an awkward and alien quality to her pose and distant gaze which give this shot a haunting Diane Arbus feel. Good work Sart. More then ever you seem to be transcending fashion while capturing it.

    LOVE the dress, but those shoes! This isn't the first time I've seen shoes with that kind of toe, and I just can't understand why anyone would want their feet to look like that.

    The shoes are great, no doubt inspired by the split toe shoes that the Japanese wore centuries ago (and are still worn if you tend to rice paddies and the like).

    She has her own site:

    fabric of dress is incredible. love the gold shoe and light bag w/ dark cardigan and chunky bracelet. someone said she's oblivious. just for fun, i'd like to guess that she's very aware – see her foot turning? great shot.

    The gold with the print dress is lovely.
    I'm all for having fun with fashion and I know the MM flats are totally tongue in cheek, but I have to say…they just aren't flattering. Clever in their way, maybe. But why not make a similar statement by doing something that doesn't involve making one's feet direct references to a pig or a goat?

    It is the rolled ankle that makes this perfection. Had the second ankle been straight, then this would only be of interest. With the rolled ankle, it is a vision.

    Rei is my favorite subject of yours. Glad to see her again.

    She's also one of the few women on here who wears shoes that won't mangle her feet. She'll still be wearing them 30 years from now while the platform 4"-ers will be wearing orthopedics and having bunion surgery.

    I know that in Japan, they sell socks like how her shoes are. They're for the traditional thong-like shoes that goes with the traditional Japanese Yukata.

    She is pretty, and unlike many here, I have no problem with her shoes. But unless a girl is Madonna and exposing her bra on purpose, her bra straps really should not be showing.
