I like: the hair – Totally – the long and thin legs and the way she’s taking the picture.
I don’t like: the rest. The jacket (too big on the shoulders), the white shorts over the dark tights, the pink shoes.
It’s really an intersting coat. wow! she’s one of stylist photographers. So chic. Love to see photographers dress up and not just taking picture of an object but also become one of style icons themself.
she looks like one of Shakespeare’s beautiful boys. A different kind of androgeny. I love the puff and sleek of hair and jacket and bloomers and calves. No, not Romeo, she’s more a bird caught between ruffle and sleek.
Beautiful jacket, a modern interpretation of an Edwardian shape. Clearly it wouldn’t work with everything or on everyone, but with a sleek bottom half (skirt or trousers) on such a great figure it is fabulous. The twisted pose is lovely too
Love love love love love. LOVE. I would never pick out those shoes to go with those leggings but they so work. And who does her hair? I have to learn how to do that.
Thanks so much for bringing us the oddest and the best in fashion. I heart you Sartorialist!
Is that culottes and a floaty lace tunic? Because that’s just awesome.
I recently read “Secrets of French Girls” which is about the style of the French – attention to proportion, detail, and timeless shapes instead of trends. Been trying to apply it to my wardrobe.
But I am boggled by this coat, I cannot decide if it is timeless or aramadillo-ish.
Such a fun jacket…if I were to try to make this for myself I would simply zig zag a piece of 1 inch wide elastic over the straight of grain on my fabric, cut out my back piece…what’s nice about all that gathering is that you don’t have to worry about any swayback issues.
Fab-u-lous. She’s like a modern day version of an old Hollywood movie star walking down a red carpet: the puffy coat, the demure dress, the feminine figure and shoes.. the HAIR. Only she made it more current and not costume-y. FAB JOB GURL!
In many ways the outfit is an almost of medieval italian inspiration. Of course, it was the men who dressed like that back then. A full jacket with puffed sleeves nipped tightly at the waist. Underneath were woolen leggins and a colorful shoe. Whats (very, very) old is new again!
Congratulations…to you and to her, because in this picture you synthesizes beauty, graciousness and style. Although is taken from behind, without a face, but is one of the most beautifull photo IÂŽve seen in your blog.
about the jacket…if I can not see it in total … I do not understand if it’s cool or not… the back could be interesting…
by the way… I think The jacket has a great personality … form and color..
and I think the shoes are not (definitely) fit with the jacket at all and the colors of the
tights too with all the rest… and it is useless to speak about the white shorts pants combined with the jacket and with all the rest.
I really like the photo..the pose, the attitude( a bit graceful) …hair, legs amazing…
This is one of the prettiest pictures that I’ve seen on here in a very long time. That isn’t to say that I dislike any of the others, because I love this blog and I adore the photographs. But for some reason, this one made me compelled to comment, which is saying something. I love it. It’s beautiful. Terrific style.
I agree, it’s a great shot, but I don’t really like the outfit. All those single pieces don’t go well together but remain isolated. Maybe it would be better if the bloomers weren’t white. And I can’t make myself like kitten heels, even if I try hard. But still – I think it’s great that you capture people who try something new and not so conventional!
