Was that a fashion show in the middle of 7th Av.?! She looks very italian, and she shows a very strong personality!
"I've tried to find a new elegance. It's not easy because people want to be shocked. They want explosive fashion. But explosions don't last, they disappear immediately and leave nothing but ashes."- Giorgio Armani
She is the very picture of a powerful New York woman, powerful in the sense of being strong and knowing who she is and what she wants. Bravo to her!
Back in the 80s, I had lots of electric blue (including my wedding dress), and a big, gold Wonder Woman belt. In that era, we wore stirrup pants for the skinny-leg look, rather than leggings. Otherwise, I think everything she has on would have been in my closet at that time.
If it was good then and it's good now, I guess it must be classic.
The man next to her is giving her the death stare. Not in a good way either. LOL. I like the movement in this photograph, and though I don't necessarily love everything this woman is wearing, she does summarize a very New York working woman look.
Your photos are usually quite transparent to the subject matter, but here there's a nice tension between what's more interesting, the photo or the phashionista. She has stopped time. Will be one of your classics, I'll bet.
this shoot is absolutly stunning, the way she looks at you like nothing can be stronger than her, and the way the man is looking at her, just like us thinking like she's right, she's just the stongest ! how can she do that ? we can't even see her eyes, it's just by the body, the hand in the pocket, the foot slighty moved.
wow i think this is the best shoot so far lol. i love the way the dude is looking at her, i love the background, and i love the impression on her face lol. i think the pics could be used as a front page magazine lol :)
RAZOR SHARP, tailored, determined, edgy, but I like the outfit, sans that gold belt, and for the first time in ages, I like a pair of women's shoes, these are lovely. We have a definition for a woman like this in Beverly Hills —- the second wife! : ) robert
I like the photo itself more than the ensemble. I think she is taking herslef a bit too seriously for my taste and something about the big glasses, big bag, big coat combo, or maybe the fact that she looks a lot more like money than fashion. but like i said good shot.
I personally love the contrast between her too big for life, taking herself too seriously attitude and the people around her, especially the man on her proper left. She may be having her fabulous fashion moment, but life is still going on around her. She is simultaneously connected to and removed from the environment. Brilliant, brilliant photo.
Awesome! I love this picture – the lining on a jacket has seldom made such an impact on an outfit. This woman doesn't give a damn what I think of her – she knows she's freaking phenomenal, and I admire that.
She looks like any sense of fashion she has is only as a result of a lot of money. And I don't like that incredibly impractical and awkward way she carries what must be a rather heavy handbag. The belt is beautiful, though.
The composition and attitude of the subject and the man on the side is what makes this picture. However, I find her to be very cheap for some reason. Perhaps it's the overly glam sunglasses and belt. Too many 'bells and whistles.' I feel like she's just another tourist from California looking for some cheap bargains.
I love this for many reasons. One is the woman herself, powerful, fierce and elegant. Next is the the blue lining of her coat, Amazing! Secondly is the man walking past, he doesnt seem to understand what is so important about this girl, maybe he never will. and lastly is the 2 girls on the left in their ripped jeans and skater shoes, they look so blah and unorganized compaired to the center focus
One of your best I've seen! The woman is so dynamic, especially her jacket, that lining is sick. I also love how the background is so much more a part of this shot, like the city didn't stop moving for you.
I love the contrast between your subject and the people to the left, our brains bridge the two contrasting sartorial choices and fill in the blank. The picture seems to ask the viewer…and what about you?
I'm drawn to the girls on the left. They look EXACTLY the same: brown Uggs or skater shoes, destroyed Abercrombie jeans, navy blue Hollister parkas, and pin-straight hair. But what's most compelling is that they have no idea what's going on in the center of the photograph, both in a literal sense and fashion-wise.
There is nothing wrong with ripped jeans. My favorite jeans got ripped and I wear them – I figure that "style" is as valid as any other crazy "style" out there – who makes the rules that it is so "passe"? People fawn over some person in PJ pants and call him so artistic avant garde bla bla bla yet the same people get all worked up on torn jeans? Seems like a small group of snooty people like to decide what style is. I Like the main girl's shoes, but not the clothes and am not a fan of the belts. I think the girls next to her are just as confident and have a very down to earth style
