there is just something about the hair style…the collar…and the dress length/shape. very nice. after those legs…and her eyes…i noticed her dress. is it just me, or are the backgrounds a bit more pleasing to shoot in milan, than in NY?
This is a woman of extraordinary beauty. Such simplicity of form and color, but the effect is powerful. The absence of affect is especially striking. The photograph is excellent as well, and it really captures the shape of the hair.
The fabric in the coat is fantastic, and I agree with you about the legs and the hair too! The coat and shoes are very flattering for her legs. They make them look very long and elegant, which isn’t the easiest thing to find clothes for. Her hair makes me think of an Asian Amelie de Montmartre…<3
Her elongated body, her pose, the look on her face, the hair swept back — make it look like a VanDyck or 18thC English aristocratic portrait (Gainsborough, Lely, etc.) though entirely now, too. Well done.
Sant Andrea. Is a stunning and individual reproduction! You have again made mere fashion appear sublime… The subject is exceptional! She has presence and a golden glow made more special by its context. The silhouette of her clothing is reiterated in the archway and frieze of wrought iron gateway. The subtle brightness of her clothe and skin by the dark shadows of the architecture. This is indeed a memorable photograph………
To anonymous 5:08, perhaps there is nothing negative one can say about what is, in all respects, a perfect picture.
Oh, and Scott doesn’t delete un-PC or negative comments – trust me, we’ve all made enough of those on here.
And Scott, if you’re reading, I’m STILL getting compliments on a dress I bought last summer that I first came across on this site. If anyone knows the designer of this gorgeous lady’s dress/coat (and shoes!), I’m all ears!
I agree with anon 5:08am. I don’t quite understand how this huge series of, like a gigantic wave, praises and admirations, -absolutely the same- could happen! Is there anyone that thinks the skirt seems too puffy??
I love this site but sometimes it seems too much polished..
