What a wonderful photo!it’s fabulous – you must have lightning reactions, Sart! I can’t help but laugh with her. I love the way her long black cardigan really brings out the print on her dress and her bag and shoes are perfect together.
Somehow what stands out for me in this picture is not really the dress, shoes, cardigan and the slightly visible bag (I think the whole look is very ordinary, personally I would have let it pass), but the capturing of the right moment, the right expression, something that isn’t staged, is the saving grace.
I love how her legs are posed and hows she’s hunched and the way her hair moves and the excited expression! the shoot really makes her and the dress more lively. spectacular shoot! ^^ love the choice of sandals they seemingly match not only the the black long cardigan but also the lilac dress itself, she’s wearing.
For the bag I think she could have chosen a better choice. say a black or gold glittery beaded evening clutch, instead? but that’s just my opinion, overall her look is very flattering and is a breath of fresh air! ^^
This shot embodies all I love about your photography: the idea that despite layers of makeup, perfect lighting, and immaculately chosen outfits, staged fashion can never compare to true beauty serendipity and a smile.
This picture is the perfect antidote to the historical weight of this date. She is lovely, in same spirit as the Girl in Pink and Sandals from a few days ago. This shot reminds me of Garry Winogrand’s series, “Women are Beautiful.” Fantastic work, Scott! The bus was a serendipitous happening!
Isn’t this great? When the world tries to blow your cool–LAUGH! She’s a refreshing antidote to all those hunched-over, hung-over, sad-eyed moppets who take themselves SOOO seriously. Thanks for the laugh, Sart. She’s a doll!
oh my gosh. i’m happy just looking at this picture. nice moment. great look. love the sweater over the floral dress that’s not too cutesy and the stripe on the shoe. love everything about the outfit and the shot. i’m going to have a good day.
Yes, buses whiz by every now and then. But, who would have expected that expression and the stance she has her legs in? It’s an otherwise ordinary shot of a woman in a dress, but we can see her inner beauty.
sure it’s lovely, the buttons and playful throw of the head… but I’m feeling a little cheated. when were you going to tell us that you were posting twice as many pics on style.com as you were here? More power to you gig wise, but sheesh i just found out I was missing most of your Bryant Park shots.
I love this picture. It captures a perfect girlishness and a moment of happiness and sillyness……..sorry that’s a lot of “ness’s” for one comment. It is so simple and yet perfect. You look at it and you wish you were there, feeling what she is feeling. Thankyou for taking this picture and thankyou for transporting me away from desk for just a moment.
Wow, what an utterly gorgeous picture! I think the shoes are from Aldo, though they may also be a rip-off of a higher-end brand. This is a link to a picture of the Aldo heels, sorry I can’t do the html-y thing. This shoe is from 2006.
Perfect its very rare in fashion that you see a model with a full face smile (yeah I know this isn’t a fashion ad/editorial but it should be), eyes smiling and all. I don’t know why they don’t do that more often, it actually made me feel a really happy emotion, very few, if any, ad photos ever do that.
She looks filled with joy and its wonderful. It made my day.
yep, perfect. i love how she is using black to set off different accents and points of focus, the buttons, the stripes on the shoes and the very interestingly styled cardigan. beautiful and unlike the woman above in the red dress, utterly classy.
