I used to work in Via Senato! Great area to work in Milan not far from Galleria VE and Duomo. The girl is lovely, her dress is superb tech-romantic. For the shoes I would go for something more elegant perhaps ballerinas…
Lovely photograph! The smoke and out of focus background blends with the ambiguity of the see-through dress. I'm not sure if I like the brown bag here, but I am lost in her smoky eyes so it really doesn't matter.
to me she just looks very elegant, sophisticated and chic. love the dress and the contrast/combination of the shoes+socks and the dress. love the fact the dress is buttoned up, it gives it a masculine touch and the black socks and brogues complete the look! in my view, it's a perfect outfit.
Could you picture this nice demure buttoned-up dress with a pair of killer Italian heels…..? Much better, no…..? This woman is so beautiful……..she should leave these flat, mannish brogues to the geeks who shop @ Opening Ceremony…… :-)
Oh, I love her style. Black and white made so interesting with different textures and patterns and shapes and sizes! Comfortable, yet inspiring. The shoes, the hair, the eyes, the buttoned up light dress. I would be intrigued to see her look in that checked coat. Lovely dark lightness!
Great style. I'm impressed by her overall look and especially her shoes and socks, which are somehow perfect. And her bag. She gives the impression of having taste, but not caring so much to impress us.
By the way, did you notice the building she is standing next to? Homely at first glance, it has some interesting details, such as the pink granite surface and rounded window opening. In the lobby there are ceramic door handles shaped like weird seahorses. If you look at the building from across the street, behind the glass above the doors (and in between the advertisements) is an abstract art work. It's by Lucio Fontana, the artist who used neon lights and wrote a theory of television. You can barely see it because of the reflections–sort of like the model's transparent dress.
Great pic and effect with the smoke, the smokey colors and fabric and her smokey eyes. Interesting individual pieces-dress, shoes, bag. But the outfit overall isn't working for me. Maybe it's the shoes. They may be comfortable but they just don't go with the shirtwaist. And no, I'm NOT suggesting high heels.
it's not just the sheer dress, it's the importance of the slip underneath. a beautiful slip is hard to find. the 50s hard polyester cannot be destroyed but also, unattractive. this slip is none of that. please can fashion houses bring back the fundamentals of lingeries as something more than just sex-clothes?
i think it's a shame so many people think that smoking is a "stylish" thing to do. i'm wondering if you consider this as well, seeing the number of pictures you take of people with cigarettes. i think smoking is disgusting. and i think those who think that smoking is chic is absolutely fooling themselves. you don't necessarily have the responsibility of promoting any sort of moral values through your blog, but i think it's quite hard to ignore those several people who commented above that looking at your pictures make them want to smoke (again.)
first of all great shot! The translucent dress,the smoke curling up, and the lights behind make this a beautiful photograph. Her eyes are amazing and I love that girly dress with the tie up loafers and socks. Great style, great shot.
Wow! I can't believe how many people are downing you because of the cigarette! If a picture makes you want to smoke, then maybe you shouldn't be looking at pictures. Have some self-control people. She looks great and she happens to smoke, great picture.
