What a great word for it. Yes there’s something very “knowing” about this woman’s expression. Like she already knows what Scott is thinking and she’s not sure how she feels about it. It’s always interesting to think about the expression that comes over someone who is having their picture taken, especially knowing it will be seen by so many.
Wow! Amazing photo. She is so lovely and effortless, and I love the hair tucked into the scarf. She is a classic beauty – could be right out of a Frans Hals portrait, if it wasn’t for the iPhone and the cigarette. Of course, I would like the photo even more without the cigarette…..
apart from just wishing she would be more healthy, wich i felt immediately, i think the cigarette does indeed add a strange, slightly jarring note, i agree! too much worldliness in an otherwise otherworldly perfection of beauty….
People need to stop trying to “help” other people to be more healthy. Its gotten to a pretty ugly point seeing how we have nutballs legislating away our right to chose how we live. I have never smoked, but something needs to be done before the government starts insisting we keep our colons clean or they will give us an enema for our own good.
Besides, the cigarette makes her Pre-Raphaelite looks stand out all the more.
Yes, here’s STYLE … nothing special here, but like a chic European lady, she “owns” the clothes, not the other way ’round. And her look is a kind of mirror on the wearer. Love it! (Why are Chicago women better put together than New Yorkers?)
I’m really excited you’re in Chicago and excited to see what you see there! The lighting and background of this photo captures something that is so quintessentially Chicago to me. It’s really strange and fun.
Lovely photo and wonderful to see someone looking un-fashiony (not a flatform or Celine coat in sight!). Scott clearly likes the bare-faced look on women; I’d love to see more photos of the glamorous faced woman, wearing noticeable makeup.
The blue striped shirt peeking out from the coat is fantastic. I was thrilled to see she is a Chicagoan. There are many of us with great style that don’t resort to obvious designers or ubiquitous labels. Wish you posted more. Last night at the MCA was a great opportunity for some original style.
On occasion, I see pictures of someone I know, yet don’t recognize them in the photo. This picture, on the other hand, is an absolute depiction of this beautiful creatures physical and spiritual appearance. I adore her and this captures her perfectly.
