LOVE! It takes some guts to buy those shoes, put them on and get out of the house in them and be confident! Great outfit, perfect legs, and those red sunglasses that are the one color that pops! I mean, let’s face it, silver is basically gray. I have a pair of silver Prada sneakers that I wear from time to time, it is a nice crazy thing to do. Note how the outfit is so outre that the accessories are kept mi-ni-mal. Also like the fit of the navy polo on the man in the background. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Well, I’ll give her points for pushing the boundaries, but this outfit just looks contrived to me. When I look at her, I really believe that this outfit was designed solely for the looks it would receive, and the comments she’d get. To me, style should be personal, and for oneself, not purely as a costume to get other people’s attention.
I love that you shot her in front of the silver motorcycle. It gives her futuristic theme more of that “oomph”. A great way to create the illusion. Her shoes totally complete the outfit. Great photo, as always.
Well, it’s interesting, I’ll give it that. The jacket could actually work if it were paired with a straight black skirt or slim black pants. But with shorts and silver wedgie sneakers? Makes me think “Halloween costume” instead of “great outfit.”
Doesn’t she look just like Emily from “The devil wears Prada”? I really don’t think that she was promoting a product or things like that. I’m from Italy, and, believe me, they really don’t make you dress like THAT to promote something.
Ha! I think this picture is funny! Her outfit is so costume-ish yet she is sitting there looking stern with perhaps important work that couldn’t wait. The shoes look like they need to be worn every day with every thing! As for the jacket, just as someone mentioned above, it looks like a uniform for the show room of a slick product… or orbit gum..
How do you do this, Scott? Did you happen to see a sleek bike and thought, “I’ll look for a subject with a space-age style outfit.”, Or, did you see her and looked for a matching bike. Or, was the bike hers and then you just found yourself a serendipitous shot. Seriously, you find the best backgrounds for your subjects and I find myself curious about your process.
it’s not just the outfit but the motorcycles behind her and the laptop and the hair that make this so perfect. But i think what works best is that she isn’t looking at you for a portrait, so it looks like you’ve captured the future.
I applaud this woman for pulling off such a stunning outfit in public! The Margiela futuristic jacket paired with the metallic stacked space age-y boots is forward thinking! Also, the way she has her done is the perfect antithesis for her statement-making jacket and shoes. She looks straight out of 2035! Just fab!
When I first saw this I liked it, but on the 2nd look, I don’t like how the shorts or skirt are so short. I mean, I agree she’s keeping the accessories subtle and that’s a good thing, but I wonder if the shoes plus the very short skirt or shorts plus the angular jacket is just TOO MUCH. ALL AT ONCE. I think I’d have to see her standing up to really know, though.
I like how the scooter in the background ties in together with the shoes and creates a subtle contrast, had the scooter been white or red it wouldnt have made such a uniformed composition. Splendid shot.
