On The Street…….Stop Motion, New York City

I love how she keeps the proportions but changes the color and pattern.

    First person to comment on her lack of helmet, her smoking a cigarette or not being a vegan gets a smack.

    if I had such a greaat figure I wouldn’t change proportions of my outfit either.. her look is perfect, the hat is so very cool.

    she doesn’t have a helmet, she smokes, she’s not a vegan (how do you know?). so smack me!

    Interesting bike, too. Fixed gear, no brakes, delicate frame. As someone else has commented, plain and simple.

    The proportion works for her, but cover up the hat and it’s an extraordinarily dull outfit.

    I agree with you. She does the proportions very well. Totally cool!

    great hat, bad everything else. Nice body, could do so much more. See dresses, see shorts that cost more than 10 dollars.

    Now, if we can only see (in the day time) more dress-savvy fashionistas in Miami maybe a few more clubbers would not mind the heat!

    I doubt this is a fixed gear bike. Single speed more likely.

    Smack me! But no one else is allowed to but her..

    I love her casual style & legggggggggs..

    As a cyclist I agree helmets ain’t the best looking accessory but you just never know what the other smo who maybe be smoking whilst listening to an iPod is thinking when the accident happens..

    Then everyone is sad – but for now..

    Lovely indeed, so I’d ask that she move her u-locks, they could catch in the wheel, none of us want that.

    Nice to see 2 shots of the same person, you get a better sense of her and how her style works.

    if I had legs like that I would keep it up as well…focus on the features.

    As has been said a number of times a beautiful woman can practically wear rags and look wonderful. (I don’t think the same can be said for men.) She has great understated style and there is certainly something about a young lady on a bike in the city. I’d love to get her phone number.

    yes, i think the hat makes it :) so inspiring!

    she must not be vegan because it looks like she’s wearing leather sandals and has a leather purse in the bottom picture.

    That bike is NOT fixed gear. Its a coaster brake dude. She couldnt cruise that carefree on a fix. The ‘fixie’ hype has saturated yer brainzzz…

    Only a girl (such as her) with such beautiful and sleek legs should wear shorts like that.

    Beautiful hat. Reminds me of the protagonist in l’Amant (Duras).

    Yet another proof that being tall and skinny (therefore, long, slim legs) are two of the luckiest things that can happen to you.

    Anon. 12:36, that’s really it, I think. If a body can look fresh and crisp and not the least bit wilted, it’s hot weather wear done right — and then if the proportions are perfect for the frame, and the colors perfect for the skin and hair … well, it makes me feel better just to look at her!

    as she has it on in both shots!
    very fresh and fabulous!
    is it not compulsary to wear a bike helmet in NY?

    12:15 PM: ah, her outfit may be not-too-terribly-inspiring without the hat, but she is indeed wearing it! Unusual hats are great and everyone should wear more. I like the orange tones with her dark, evenly cropped hair, too. Her style looks laid-back and refreshing and reminds me of the beach where my dad used to live.

    If I had just seen each individual clothing piece that this girl is wearing (in the top photo) in a store I would think ‘eh…’ but all together, on this woman, these seemingly mediocre pieces just work naturally and create a brilliant aesthetic.

    The pefect illustration of American sportswear done right. Perfect for summer cruisin’ in the city or at the beach or in the mountains.

    And — THAT is the perfect type of city cruisin’ bike. Without messin’ with gears or hand-brakes, she can balance on the stopped bike. Sitting down with her feet on the pedals ready to go when the light changes. (I learned how to do that when I lived in Amsterdam).

    And that’s what’s Style is all about, elle said… She’s got basic clothes but that one fabulous item takes her look into the stratosphere. What’s she going to wear on a bike that’s more practical than a pair of shorts? A miniskirt and heels?

    Correction, two fabulous items: add a great pair of legs. Point being, folks, she didn’t get by catching cabs all her life. So quit envying and get out there cycling (with a helmet on)!

    She must like the hat quite much cause she is wearing it again.The hat is not bad,but I think that riding a bike is not the best forum for it.

    Have to disagree with elle, must one don a dress – spend more on clothing to look better? Money can’t buy imagination or personality. Viva le difference!

    that hat definitely turns an ordinary t-shirt and shorts into a fashion statement.
    and i disagree w/ elle, you definitely do not have to spend a lot of money to look fabulous–money DOES NOT buy style!

    The face says Maggie Gyllenhaal, the outfits say easy New York style, and the bike says she’s a bit smarter than many.

    What’s interesting about this is that her clothing choices are about line and silhouette–the clothes as discreet elements aren’t really important (except for the hat, but even that is an integral part of the silhouette). It’s interesting to see people who do this, while with other people you photograph, it’s about an amazing piece of clothing or a great hair style. She obviously knows that what makes her unique and beautiful are her proportions. She could look gangly or gawky in another kind of outfit.

    I can’t wait to see what she wears in winter.

    She looks terrific and the proportions are just right. Please don’t copy this look however (vertical lines, short shorts), unless you have a body like this. Could be scary

    I thought the first pic of her was fantastic – now this! The hat is interesting but seems to be covering eyes as nice as her legs.
