I have to admit that I really love all the photo’s you take, and I appreciate the fact that you take the time to read the comments left on them also.
I have a question about why you are choosing to take a very important element of clothing out of your imagery….the colour?
I was thinking that too. I saw this on someone else the other day and her pic was labeled stylish. I was puzzled because I thought the pants don’t look right. If i get a wrinkle like that I don’t wear them but maybe it’s a look ??
I agree, as a woman, I’d prefer this site to focus on fashion, not objectification/overt sexualization of women’s bodies, which I get enough of everywhere else. I know it’s your site to do whatever you want with, but I found the caption as well as some of the comments here to be pretty tasteless.
@Andrew G, you have clearly never been the subject of unsavory cat-calling as you walked down the street. Nor have you had to worry about how basic wardrobe choices very tangibly affect your personal safety. Otherwise, your comment would not have been so rude and thoughtless.
Liz: I can’t reply directly to you so I’ll say it here. Thank you for the link you shared. It reminded me of just how much hassle being a young woman can be. Especially the bit about being told to smile, as if young women can’t experience life’s ups and downs just like everyone else. I get much less of this kind of harassment now I’m well into my 40s. Hence, of course, I smile much more… Not having to constantly worry about how I am seen helps with that.
Oh for heaven’s sake, lighten up. Admiring someone is not a bad thing. And , yes, i have certainly been cat-called, and while often it annoys me, sometimes it makes me feel good too.
Its super annoying when one woman, or even twenty choose to speak for all of us.
OH how funny!!!! Anyone look at captions by women when there are pictures of hot young men on here? Its an equal opportunity offenders around here.
There is inherently a degree of objectification in physical attraction and I think you that find fault in Scott’s comment or those of the other admirers here are trying too hard to find fault with the male species. Would you have the same degree of disgust when someone compliments a woman’s hair or eye liner or accessory? Some can simply purchase a certain level of fashion envy but a woman or man cannot achieve another type of admiration/envy by a conscious effort towards good health? It’s odd to me that no one has a problem with those that covet something material here on these pages but god help the man (or woman) who compliments a woman’s physical feature that carries a measurement! May as well castrate us!
Liz: Thanks for the link. That story, and the comments following it, might help some posters understand why a number of the comments and attitudes here have resonated negatively for some (or, perhaps, many) of us.
I have to disagree with you, Scott. Your original caption is itself a cat call, as are the many comments here on the woman’s rear end and the tightness of her clothes, whether complimentary or not. That this is not apparent just goes to show how pervasive and normalized the objectification of women’s bodies really is in our society.
THANK YOU, Liz. Just thank you. Never give up.
Perhaps we should comment on her stunning smile….nice shot Scott, also enjoyed the caption.
I’m not going to comment on the lady’s figure. But it does surprise me sometimes, what gets blokes going.
I love the white ensemble look, especially with dark hair. But her trousers don’t fit at all, they are rucking all over the shop. The jacket is slightly over-sized, which is ok, but in combination with the too-small trousers and the very high – teetering – black heels, it doesn’t work for me.
…this reminds me of a time a long long time ago when my young intern asked me how “I managed to keep my ass so tight”…..
That was a long time ago and I don’t get those kinds of comments nowadays.
But I digress; this woman looks awesome and I think that there is nothing wrong with her pants. If she were dressed in black pants, you wouldn’t be able to see the wrinkles, rucks. Maybe she should have stepped out in tights instead of pants? Good grief. This looks and sounds ridiculous. If she had stepped out in tights, there would have been a chorus of voices telling her to put her pants on. Which brings us back to Square 1 – this.
I never thought that legs that are sheathed would look better (sexier) than legs that are bare. But this picture has shown and persuaded me otherwise.
Ah, yes, but for the good old days when men were free to be chauvinists and entitled to say any god damn thing they pleased about a woman, right? Dress, arse, whichever – a woman exists to be evaluated by your gaze, right? RIGHT, Monsieur Sartorialist?
Some day you ladies who are protesting the use of this picture and how difficult it is to get dressed in the morning due to “cat calls”, will wonder why you didn’t enjoy it. You’ll remember the days you were admired and found attractive and wish you’d enjoyed it more.
