    Great circus act, in heels. And how did she get up there? She is short, but strong. You got to love it.

    I love how she accessorize, but the hat is slightly misplaced in my opinion. Or maybe it’s just too much with the leopard print leggings/ pants. Is that a Dries van Noten bag?

    I admire the way she is sitting there. The posing!!! Awesome!

    I always love the courage in people who get out of the house in things I would not even consider buying, because they are so bold. I adore the leggings and the fact that she wears them with confidence. I also like that her clothes do not look brand-new or trendy. Great shot! Jorge from W Palm Beac

    What a wonderful face, the headscarf makes the whole outfit. I think she asked a strong, handsome stranger to lift her up there – when you look like that you can ask and get anything.

    a bit matchy, but the balls to sit on a rail says this woman either knows where she’s headed or is an EE beggar.

    Don’t think I’d have the guts to wear this (even though I love the colors). Kudos to her… she makes it work.

    I don’t know why this shot reminds me of Draguignan in the Provence. Maybe, it’s the cars and shops behind her. Looks like a great place to “people watch”. She looks cool.

    I can’t clearly distinguish what she’s wearing on her head and it makes all the difference in the world. If it’s leopard print and matchy-matchy to her tights, then I hate it. BUT, if it’s just a pink turban to frame her beautiful face, then I love her entire look.

    I love raspberry pink, so I like this look. It’s cheery.

    But I’m more intrigued as how she got up there and how she can just sit like that.

    I would be ass-flat on the ground after a second.

    she’s so fierce. i admire people who can wear such bold items and carry themselves with such style, confidence and grace. i love the way her foot is curved around the bar…. so sexy and coy!

    love it!

    this princess is outstanding. the dreamy way to sit there, and not give a damn if people think her pink pants are “too much”…no, she knows she is perrrfect. oooh i like that!

    It takes a whole lot of nerve to wear leggings and even more with animal prints without looking ridiculous !
    She certainly knows how to wear those well !

    Such a cool pose, and how did she climb up? I guess she is probably as short as me. But she is incredibly cute though.

    Love how she’s slightly wrapping herself around the bar! Very cute shoes BTW. And I’m not usually a fan of leopard print PERIOD but I think the pants she’s wearing are really fun.

    Twenty five years ago, I would have worn this. Now, well, the assets aren’t up to it. She looks fabulous!

    This is one of my favorite photos of the last few months.

    She is fully clear with the atmospheric backdrop a haze of light and color. More than playing with depth of field, playing with solidity and ephemeral space.

    She has a wonderful strong face with that keen glance to her left.

    Her clothes are great, for once I have no quibbles or worse.

    Bird on the wire is right, in that she ‘alit’ there with some almost imaginary move and now sits comfortably.

    She is still whlle the people to her side are in motion, giving the photo a kind of rhythm from one side of it to the other.

    Love the leggings and shoes, not so hot on the turban, but it does highlight her wonderful eyes. Slightly off-topic… what is that dreadful poster for in the background? Strip club?

    I hate animal print, I know it can be executed well, but I still despise it. However I love the balancing act and the shoes—so great.

    P.S. I’m not an animal activist or vegan, etc.

    i can’t bring myself to agree with anyone who is loving this look.. and this bar isn’t that high, she could have easily gotten on it. the one nice thing is her pose (and photo, as usual).. but to me that scarf is ruining an already not-so-great look.. sorry! maybe she was just more interesting in person..

    there’s no topshop in the states and if there were, i wouldn’t be mad at anyone for shopping there. i’m sure that this woman has her own zest. not everyone can pull off a turban head wrap mid day and look good doing it. she knows what’s up!

    I’m just scared she’s going to fall off. How’d she get up there anyway?? With those heels??? Great shot!

    Hmm. I like it, I like the highlighting of her face from the head wrap. The pink seems to flatter her skin. Is it just me, or is the texture of the coat sort of picking up the dotty-ness of the leopard print? Looking at the left side of her coat I sense a dotted texture so that overall she looks slightly dot-covered. Maybe it’s just the light. Fantastic shoes.

    The headscarf is pulling it all together for me – plus she has the face to carry it off and GREAT eyebrows.

    When some people wear bold items, people go “nice ____.”

    And then there are some people who wear bold items and people just go “wow.”

    Love it! Loving the pose, too.

    Hmm agreeing with the minority here I’m not a huge fan of this look. I LOVE the hot pink and her pose she looks like a little birdie, but I honestly don’t think the turban does her face justice. I find her features and face shape too strong for it. And I just don’t like the leopard print! I’m biased here with my tastes but it certainly makes for an interesting photo.
