    The side-shave has been back for a while, but it’s interesting how it hasn’t gone the way other other fads. It seems to have picked up steam, actually.

    Beautiful moody shot. I don’t understand, though, why a woman with such beautiful long hair would want to shave the sideburns off..It’s like pairing the barren desert with the lushness of a full-grown California forest, I guess….

    Perfect lighting. Simply beautiful.
    She looks like a modern version of a flamish painting.

    very interesting…are we sure it is a woman? there is something distinctly masculine about her right profile (facing the camera) completely independent of her alternative hairstyle- even more interesting given the upcoming release of ChloĂ« Sevigny’s Hit & Miss.

    sometimes I think the shaved thing works on people but in this case it looks like she has a wig falling off of a shaved head – maybe it’s just the angle, or her expression….sorry, not my fave.

    I love this look, the blouse coming off the shoulder, the hair cut, the way her lips are parted but not smiling. Of course she’s a singer, what else?

  39. Jelena Zunda

    May 18, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    The shot is great and sorry, I hate undercuts – I think they deface people… Then again, maybe it was her intention to look tough and masculine, which again doesn’t correspond with the flirty neckline.

  40. Zola Bunny

    May 18, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    @Lintmag – that’s exactly what I was thinking, it does look like a wig falling off a rather pretty boy’s shaved head…not working unfortunately…

    A little dose of androgyny is a bit cool and interesting. Too much of it as it is here makes me really uncomfortable.

    Although it’s in color, there’s a Mapplethorpe sensibility to this portrait.

    I’ve been “reading” this blog for years, and have never before felt compelled to comment. But this is gorgeous. As someone with very long hair myself, I appreciate how this woman isn’t hiding behind it as so many tend to do. My favorite part of this portrait, though, are her eyes. They convey so much. Stunning. Thank you, Scott, for showing us so many different kinds of beauty.

    Ah! So many different words for “beauty.” The dress is so daisies-n-cream, but she wears it like a warrior. What marvelous contrasts.

    Only an idiot or a blind person would think it was difficult to tell that this is TOTALLY A FEMALE. I like the way the blouse is falling off the shoulder. Very sensual. Her expression and her lips are very striking too.

    Some people say – photo can capture one’s soul. This may not be far from the truth looking at this one.

  73. bisbee

    May 21, 2012 at 9:51 am

    I also think she has a masculine looking face…which is emphasized by the shaved hair. I’ve never understood the under-shave – it never looks attractive to me. Just my opinion, of course!
