I was temporarily blinded by her teeth!! What a brilliant white welcoming smile. Not so much burlesque as flamenco flavoured. The shoes, the length of the dress, the dangling earings, the attitude, yes, flamenco gone Australian.
it is always wonderful to see beautiful smile …. i love the close-up shot of the girl and what a wonderful contrast between her red hair and jade-green nail polish!!! Very eccentric bohemian style that is as personal as her smile, xx
Real faces are always infinitely more interesting than air brushed model faces. Model faces have a certain kind of beauty that's valuable but rarely are they as arresting as some of the real street people that you find. Love the nail polish too.
Scott, you've probably already thought of this but if you have an opportunity sometime you should go to Art Basel Miami Beach in December…it's a sartorial fantasyland. Ridiculously great style everywhere and lots of people whom I'm sure look at your blog daily. Cheers, J.
@Evita Jackie : The Jade colour of Chanel is a mission impossible but the closest to it is made by Bernard Wilhem for USW AIRUNES (you can see me wearing it on my blog, couple of posts back..) The cheaper version can be found at New Look, 5 colours and green is 1 of them) Good luck !
Scott, great post – I just love those burlesque-kind-of-women … they breathe that amazing 1950-ies style …
me encanta su sonrisa, de verdad que me parece toda una mujer. nada de mascaras, simplemente ella. bueno, btw esta maÃ±ana estuve en la red todo el dÃa, y encontre este portal de moda, cultura de moda, 100%, recomendadisima!!!
She's extremely pretty. But her look is too much. The dress plus the hair plus the jewelry plus the nail polish is just a bit too much. It ages her, instead of emphasizing her naturally lovely face. I do appreciate her sense of style with her hair, though. If it were dark it would possibly be even better!
The anonymous comment who said "maybe it's time to come back to New York" – I can't get over the arrogance of that.
And the girl in the picture – she's doing her own thing so joyously and it's lovely to behold. Who cares if this doesn't quite go with that or whatever? It's the overall package and that's a wondrous and life-filled thing.
I'm not getting this at all. I think the dress, especially the length, is really unattractive, the intensity of the hair dye with her complexion is glaring, the style of her hair doesn't do anything for her and the bag looks weird with the shoes and everything else! She has a knock-out smile and a great attitude, but the rest … oh boy.
She is beautiful and I like how comfortable yet interesting the dress looks because of how the fabric is draped. Her hair, earrings, & bag look great with it too. I'm not into the bright green nail polish, though. Kind of jarring with all the earthy colors.
Bet you this dress even better in motion than it is in the photo. Since she is a dancer i picture her moving in a fluid sex way. Her hair is great. Is that a piercing on her upper lip? a jeweled mole? She is having fun with her style in a wonderful way. I wish I could see what she does at 70. I bet it will just as adorable.
Hi! I'm a devoted fan from Toronto, Canada. Not commenting on this pic, but just wanted to say that I received your book today as a gift, and LOVE it! it is fashionably divine and is an inspiration. thank you.
I'm loving Scott's comment to Anon 4:43! Comments like that irk me too. So what if you think her outfit is "wrong". This is a street style blog – it's about personal style, not about wearing a perfect outfit from head to toe. Pick out elements of her outfit to inspire you, rather than passing judgment.
For me, it's definitely the nail polish. I would never have thought to wear that colour – but after seeing this, I think I might get adventurous!
"I think people are perfectly marvelous, I really do, Cliff. Don't you? I don't think people should have to explain anything. For example, if I should paint my fingernails green – and it just so happens I do paint them green – well, if anyone should ask me why, I say: 'I think it's pretty!' 'I think it's pretty,' I reply."
To the person who said that Lauren is "singularly lacking in style", apparently, you have no idea what "Style" really is. She may not be wearing something you like, or something fashionable, but she is absolutely bursting with style and personality! There is no doubt that she is a confident woman who is comfortable in her own skin, and that is true style.
She looks great. I love her confidence. She seems to be so comfortable in her own skin. My nails are her color right now! I love the hair, and earrings, oh and the eye make-up and piercing. This is my style all the way. Sometimes, old ladies come up to me and say things like "why have you disfigured your face?," referring to my nose ring…but then more people say "hey, that looks gorgeous!" So, I usually, listen to the second group.
Nicely surprised to see someone who does not look just young and skinny, and does have a lots of personality. Have bought the book recently. Unfortunately, the 95% of female shots are young and skinny. The remaining 5% are mainly somehow eccentric.
