    Of all the lovely and interesting elements that compose this picture (hair, smile, dress, sky, silvery wet ground…) her pose and the shy way she looks down is what I like most.

    A great outfit that really suits her. Even better, a really lovely picture. It is so nice when people are relaxed enough for you to be able to capture them as a person as much as their look.

    i love her dress! at first glance it looks like a dress and sweater, but then i realized it just has a great cut, right?

    Unusual dress amd well chosen to suit the body shape and express herself. Love it.
    I wish I could see the shoes. I like full pictures as they complete the message one is sending by choosing their outfit.

    and it is just the quality of the shot

    I’m not sure what it’s made of (the dress)? Is this leather or satin? I hope it’s black satin :) I love the tailoring.
    And this gesture the girl is doing with her hands… So lovely and natural.

    sart – lezark is one leg of the misshapes tripod…dj/tastemaker (altho many would challenge the latter) trio who used to throw parties at dunhill’s on saturdays…transitioned into more high brow events – dj’ing at the tents and afterparties for fashion week (ck, etc)…lezark has perfected the deadstare pose which is why her smiling is completely blowing my mind right now

    I know this girl – Is she a french actress? I don’t think this is Leigh Lezark: I had a look at some pictures.

    is that a leather skirt? or a dress?

    I like how it sort of looks like armor…but then she has the softest expression. juxtaposition of hard and sweet. I like the way she looks.

    Isn’t it hard not to read the way people appear in the flash of a flickering moment and take it as a representation of who they really are?!

    yes it must be leigh lezark of the misshapes :) she always dresses in black anyway ;)

    I agree with anonymous 9:47 AM: Now that you get invited places, you seem to only photograph the lines at the fashion shows. We can’t really relate to that any more.

    This is one of those great shots that intrigues a viewer. What’s behind the smile? The girl is lovely and the light captures her beautiful complexion. Oh – and the dress is great! I really like the modern, understated elegance of the lines.

    Some people act like these subjects, Leigh Lezark and previously Irina Lazarenu, aren’t real people. They were very real until just recently and yet they’re style has not changed. Just because someone goes through a change in income doesn’t mean anything. If one of you somehow became famous overnight would you not go out and buy more high-end labels? Stop Hating!

    Another minor celeb?

    Sart must be aiming also at higher-paying gigs. Can’t blame him, but what has made this site delightful is his finding the beautiful and the individual in everyday people. That is what has made this site actually elevating, instead of merely interesting.

    Don’t forget Indiana, Sart. It’s what keeps it real.

    Despite the fact that this girl often looks mean and rude and I find her a turn off, this is so very much better than the previous one of Irina. Its a amazing what a smile does for Lethal Lizard Leigh- she becomes Lovely Leigh. Oh, yeah and the garb is perfection.

    I love the dress, I would definitely wear it.

    I would really like to see more everyday street style, for the average person with, taste and a creative edge, I love high end fashion, models and other famous people, but most people could relate to something more attainable.

    I love your shots, and am glad you have this blog.

    I am facinated by the use of leather on a draped dress. Leather double welt pockets no less. There must be a lot going on in the under layers of it to maintain this shape. What kind of closures does it have? Who made it and where can I bask in their genius?

    I dont’ know who she is so I don’t care if she’s normally sullen. Here’s she’s radiant and her outfit (what I can see of it) is perfection (and I’m not a big fan of black on black on black – usually boring). Everything about the photo works for me, especially her overbite and the sweet position of her hands. Fabulous girl.

    she seems very demure in the way that shes dressed and how she’s smiling with her hands up by her neck. i really like this photo because it really captures the idea of quiet beauty, which is something that seems fairly enigmatic in the world today.
