    I really don’t know what to make of this piece. I feel like the colour is brilliant, but this is a situation where she looks great based solely upon where you found her.

    I dont’ like this look :(

    I love the color combination…looks effortless and right..

      Agreed, not to mention that caftan looks so comfortable!
      The loafers as well look good – I think this look is all about ease and comfort

    interesting style!!

    She looks so striking -her hair cut, colour in contrast with her red dress.

    Nice colors and shoes. But I don┬┤t prefer that style.

    Such bright colours and a pale graffiti background is so gorgeous!

    I love the mix of red and blue, but the pieces themselves, not so much. Great photo anyway!

    what a great photo!! love this vivid red and graffiti wall in the back ground~!!! you are such an awesome photographer! so dramatic ^^ i love it!!

    Love the dress and hate the socks!

    Was enjoying the colour and the breeziness of the dress…and then I scrolled down and looked at the socks and shoes. I stopped enjoying it at that point.

    • Becca

      October 18, 2012 at 11:06 am

      I agree. The leg wear is peculiar.

    • Paula

      October 18, 2012 at 11:59 am

      That is exactly what happened to me! Scrolling down, I thought “Oh, she looks like an angel!” and then “Oh my GOD! Who let her out of the house in those socks????”

    • Liza D.

      October 18, 2012 at 3:19 pm

      Same here. The socks have to go. They look a bit like what they make you wear after varicose vein treatment. And the shoes are “too much shoe” for the dress. Would look better with something strappy or minimal. But she’s lovely, the colors are great, and, of course, the photography is sublime.

    • Martine

      October 24, 2012 at 1:35 pm

      I think thats exactly what she wants you to think, of course. The outfit has a lot of humor in it, obviously. She is in on the funnyness.

    Who walks round looking like this in Milan? I am so surprised-she does not look Italian!

    October 18, 2012 at 10:20 am

    seems to be a hungarian folk dress!!!

      Have you ever been in Hungary or have you ever seen a Hungarian folk dress? Just google it :)

    This is wonderful: A young woman working on developing her own style and blessed with a f**k you attitude. Besides that, she gives great bitch face. Could well be an icon in the making. You go, child.

    • Jill

      October 18, 2012 at 12:11 pm

      Yes, I definitely agree with you. Her style, if it may be called such, gives off the vibe of something yet in the making. Her confidence makes her stand out. She exudes a certainty that seems so mature for her age.

    • roelien

      October 18, 2012 at 1:57 pm

      agreed. a lil’ angel in red – and socks. so what. she’s great.

      • Jenny

        October 18, 2012 at 8:35 pm

        And it appears that contributes to an unbelievable portrait. Quite stunning. I’m also pondering the color combination (red white and teal) and the proportions (wide breezy dress, flats).

    • Anji

      October 19, 2012 at 3:30 am

      “blessed with a f**k you attitude” … I LOVE THAT SENTENCE!

    such a cool outfit! i love her face/look and haircut too :) really cute and.. innocent looking

  21. Elena

    October 18, 2012 at 10:23 am

    Well, interesting look-you don’t see something like this every day, I actually like the color of the dress.

    October 18, 2012 at 10:26 am

    la verdad no me agrada la combinacion…el dise├▒o es interesante,…pero eso le luciria a otra persona….ella es una bb…..

    it’s all very interesting…she looks very young

  27. Nola

    October 18, 2012 at 10:54 am

    What I like about this photo is the defiant expression and self-awareness of the young lady… goes beyond convention, without any need of approval

    • Monsieur Marcel

      October 18, 2012 at 11:24 am

      I agree…a “my life-my rules” vibe.
      She’s certainly aware about striking color combos.

  28. helen

    October 18, 2012 at 10:58 am

    The red is amazing! But i┬┤m not too sure about the shoes and socks. Anyway, she is a stunning beauty!

    just: without style:-(

    The Pre-Raphaelites would have appreciated her look. Striking.

    I’m not really in love with this look…

    October 18, 2012 at 11:15 am

    Always interesting that people keep talking fashion when you are talking photography. Sure, the girl is perfect on all accounts, but it is the background who make this picture.

    • racheldreadful

      October 18, 2012 at 12:45 pm

      this blog is called The Sartorialist, so it isn’t that odd that people are talking about
      the fashion.

  33. sarah

    October 18, 2012 at 11:25 am

    I love the large solid color, it’s like a backdrop for her face.

  34. michael

    October 18, 2012 at 11:29 am

    She looks like she just woke up and is heading for the bathroom in her robe. Really?

    • Isabella

      October 18, 2012 at 12:22 pm

      Totally agree.

    • Name*

      October 24, 2012 at 1:44 pm

      Then why is she wearing make up?
      But even if she did just decide the heck with it, I look good just like this, thats pretty great too. You know if she didn’t want her picture here, it wouldn’t be here. Obviously she is agreeable to her face being shown, and her outfit being on this blog. See?

  35. Darrell

    October 18, 2012 at 11:30 am

    It looks to me like she left the house wearing her mother’s dress. Or picked up something on a lark at a thrift store. It’s better suited for a larger woman.
    That said, I’m not complaining. It smacks of sass and attitude–What you gonna do about it? Spirit is nice to see in a young woman. Especially one I don’t have to deal with. ;-)

    I love the “f*ck you” attitude. She definitely knows the joke is on us. Brilliant photo.

    • princessglee

      October 18, 2012 at 2:37 pm

      I see a look of disbelief that someone wants to take her picture for a style blog. I also see courage and anxiety over what might happen.

      • Name*

        October 24, 2012 at 1:40 pm

        LOL! If she went out like that she MEANT to shock people, pretty obviously. I see a very confident girl with her hands on her hips and her feet in a fighters stance loking like she owns the world.

    There’s not an attitude that you can strike that can save this look….

    Continuity of the “anything goes” saying.
    The face and hair of this young lady are exquisite.

    She has such a striking face!

    I disagree with the people saying the socks are ruining this look.
    I love the I-don’t-give-a-sh*t attitude they give it!

    Oh wow. Like a vision from a Bergman movie.


    October 18, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    If you like the just-got-out-of-bed-and-popping-to-the-corner-shop-for-a-pint-of-milk look, this is the one for you. When I’m in the country I wear similar – pyjamas, big hat, dressing gown, wellington boots, sunnies. But not on the street.

  59. berenger

    October 18, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Oh wow she’s just something else. A dignity so supreme that she makes the idea of actually doing your ironing seem like a naive mug’s game, and comfortable shoes and socks to boot. I love this girl she has something very special. x

    Beautiful picture! She is one mysterious girl. I don’t like this look but the dress really has potential if styled differently…..

    love her blue shoes goes so well with her read caftan not feeling the socks..

    I don’t know what’s so interesting about this picture, but I keep looking at it. There’s something strange in it.

    Beautiful! She really reminds me of a young Sandrine Bonnaire.

    Looking like goddess. Probably red shoes would be nice.

    • Name*

      October 24, 2012 at 1:38 pm

      Red shoes would be awful. Sandals would be appropriate…but then I have to admit somehow it just wouldn’t be half as cool if she were wearing something as obvious as a pair of delicate sandals and bare skin. It would still be pretty, but less fun.

  73. Rebecca

    October 20, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    Ow I love!!
    The solid colour over dyed loose cotton dress is my new obsession. Reminds me of the movie Electrick Children – but not pastel, nor fitted. really feeling the purity of this.

    I love it. I wouldn’t recommend the look for any one else, but here, and on her, its amazing and right. A ghostly bride in granddads slippers! It looks beautiful and very strange.

  77. Highland Fashionista

    October 28, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    I just want to rip off those sweat socks (!?!?) and loafers and put her in a gold gladiator sandal or a wedge or something less “I just escaped from the locked psych ward” looking. I get that she may be wearing these socks ironically, if sweat socks can be ironic, but it sails just a bit close to the wind for my tastes. Love the caftan though. Shame about the bloods socks.

  78. Gekko Hopman

    October 30, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    The problem is not the colour-matching, the problem is that the dress needs a good ironing.
