    Chuck Taylors are the most underappreciated accessory. I dig this exponentially.

    I love the combination of her cape and coverses with the red socks -it's like a modern day red riding hood.

    Beautiful. This is what style is all about. Mixing the high end with the classics, and adding a pop of personality.

    Great shot.

    This is something I would wear then worry my legs are too pale for it. Next time I think that I'll think of her. She looks great. Love the coat.

    There is something quite charming about this picture and, yes, of course it was the red socks which drew me into it, but it was also the hair and the skin tones, as well as the geometry of the photo, particularly the manner in which her upper and lower halves suggest two triangles or a diamond. I'm not quite sure what to make of her outfit, but there is a little bit of risque loveliness present in the way that a wee bit of white peeps out from under the coat, while the shorts serve only draw the eye in a little bit more. Good eye in finding this shot, Scott!

    This girl reminds me of one of the characters from Sofia Coppola's movie, the Virgin Suicides. She's very indie chic in that youthful innocent way. Money and expensive clothes can't buy you this style.

    soo cute, youthful and relaxed, the coats cut is fab and teamed well with the cons. but i am sick to death of long hair worn down like this, she would look even more cute and casual if she twisted it up…

    Nice and refined contrasts in this look. Bare skin vs thick clothing, skinny legs vs bulky coat, light skin vs dark clothing.

    girl from the burberry ads!!!


    September 30, 2009 at 10:19 pm

    I'm pretty sure 'chucks' alone could solve all of the world's (fashion) problems.

    Yep. This photograph convinces me of it.

    i'm always impressed when people can incorporate chucks with chic-er (i know i made that up haha) looks. my favorite part has to be the red socks though

    I'm pretty sure that is the Edie girl who is currently in the Marc Jacobs ads. Very nice shot.

    That is some excellent pink-cheeked cuteness right there. Is she wearing two watches? Because if she is, I am charmed. Altho' I am already charmed by the mad juxtaposition of her goofy Chucks and her polished coat.

    Looking good in a great jacket and, for once, comfortable shoes. Seriously, some of the women's shoes in recent photos are just scary.

    I also like the composition of the photo, the black/white color scheme, and the way the blotches of color in the window (yellow, blue, red/orange) echo the colors in her hair, cheeks, watches and socks.

  37. Nat

    i like her cons with the red and the coat clearly works well. showing style without being expensive and in your face.

    I also love the geometry of the shot.

    Regardless… time to bury the Converse shoes. They've had their time, welcome to the 21st Century. Move on.

    I detest basketball and I don't need to be reminded of a pointless game in the street with a relic design that barely passed for shoes in the first place.

    Calculated pose with one foot over the other that is soporific.

    This is a very old style yet now considered to be new. Silly rabbits.

    I think she should have changed her sneakers to something bit less trashy tho.

    she is so gorgeous!

    jsut imagine to put tha same black coat and the sneakers on a 1.65 cm fatter person.

    in this case model made the dress.

    by the way. the photo is amazing. kinda melancoly.

    Wonderful pic! There's a little bit of sadness on her face, and it's actually cute.

    Love Chuck Taylors…my leather one in a cream color is my favorite.

    My desire to my next life: thin legs. This girls can wear whatever they want, and it never looks vulgar.

    I love the contrast in proportion – long, thin, bare legs with a mid-thigh coat and of course, the contrast of formal vs. informal wear.

    The white stone cherubs behind her make the story.

    She's a grown-up cherub in the flesh. Her legs have grown long from their previous chubbiness. She's wearing black to show she's ready for adult action.

    But the cherubs are not so far behind.

    I have to say I think your London collection is fantastic and stands apart from other recent entries. Brits always do seem to have that edgy, mod coolness in the way they dress.

    I would have placed this as a Paris look with the coat. The foowear, however, add a bit of British tomboy chic. Her long hair adds to her elongated and pretty look.
