Animal print gloves with winter-white, very classy! *adore* The shoes…They’re very interesting. However, I’m on the fence about this pair. I long to see them from another angle to satisfy my curiosity. Anyone know the brand?
I didn’t realize this was a back view until I saw her heel (which I thought was a doggie for a second). She is very stylish but she has no hiney. She should have a cheeseburger for lunch today instead of her usual lettuce leaf. Love the gloves!
I like the feeling of this shot, very artistic, a detail captured in a moment of inspiration.
As for the actual pieces, I think it is a bit much. I could have gone with one wild animal over the two of them.
Either the leopard gloves to complement the pure white outfit and patterned pantyhose, or the wild je-ne-sais-quoi happening above the heels to add a touch of wow. Together, in my opinion, it’s too much.
I would’ve thought this image captured in Paris. This over-the-top frou-frou is delightful. It would take major cajones (or ovaries) to walk down the boulevard in this as your feet look as if your 2 Pekineses are following you. The gray lace stockings, the winter white and leopard print, I could do that. The shoes I’d keep for display, they’re gorgeous.
i wish i was daring enough to go out of the house in something as fabulous as this!
i don’t really understand the shoes, and wish that the tights were more subdued so that the gloves could really stand out against the white. but her choice, even if they’re above my head, deserve mention
I love this, first, as a photo. The leopard print glove, with the finger pointing to the furry ankles. The white suit and the white heels. The sidewalk grid, and the lacy stalkings. The sense of movement. Ah.
But it also made me think of one of the comments about the young lady in blue maribou a few days ago–that all women have a fantasy city (New York, Paris, Milan…) where they have the time, money and chutzpah to put together their fantasy outfits and where they are understood. This is a woman who is making her fantasy real and I applaud her for it. Bravo.
I’d love this more with a plainer pair of classic black heels, I think. Then the leopard and the lace would look deliberately but tastefully clashed instead of it looking just a bit too much too much…which is what it looks like to me at the moment.
Gorgeous shot, I love her gait and the beautiful sense of the streets of NYC. I suppose I can understand why some people wouldn’t appreciate those incredible shoes; wearing works of art on your feet isn’t for everyone. But the comment that said they should just be kept at home on display?? Why would you drop an exorbitant amount of money on a FASHION ACCESSORY just to look at it and never wear it? Silly comment, in my opinion. I would die to be able to afford a pair of shoes like that, or one of the new Christian Loubitains that also have a dramatic (almost rediculous; as another poster said, it takes balls to wear something like this and you need to own it) and artistic shape.
When I see this picture, I wonder her age. The suit length, gloves and stockings would typically make me think she is older. However, the extremely playful textures and patterns aren’t for the faint of heart. I am overjoyed to think that she could be 30 or 60 from this angle.
It’s Holly Golightly! I bet her other hand has a cigarette on a long holder. If they remade “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” this is what Holly would wear. I adore it. I wish I could dress like this, but it’s a bit much for my home-office writing job and picking up the kids from school. It makes me happy, though, that somebody gets to dress this way!
Beginning with the kimono shot right through the pink shoes, I’ve really enjoyed this series of photos focusing on personal eccentricities and their influence on what people choose to wear on the street. Nothing wrong with hip young things following the fickle dicta of the latest hot designers, but this recent emphasis presents a refreshing dichotomy.
I love her Sergio Rossi heels. I remember when they were selling them at Colette. I hesitated to buy the same pair. However, I would never think to wear them with the nylons she selected. I think that they look fabulous, and I just love the cream pencil skirt. However, I do not like the leopard gloves. It takes away from the silhouette, but I do like the elegance of her hand position as she is walking.
This is an incredible photo, Sart! I agree with the other posters here, it’s a look that belongs in the late 50′s-early 60′s Breakfast at Tiffany’s for sure- And yet still resonates today. Beautiful and GUTSY!
