Love the combination of dark tones and the long (shirt) on long (skirt)… way to play skillfully with clothing. Also love how she didn't loose herself or her shape in the clothing.. that is a real challenge for me!
The little details of her 'manni√®res' make this shot so romantic.
love that flowy skirt .. so feminine. its wonderful!
so funny, on the weekend when i was in NYC i went to the presentation for the Bespoken label (menswear) … As the taxi pulled up outside the Chelsea Piers and I went to open the door, I started squealing with delight. Outside, having a cigarette, was a man. The funniest thing is I dont know who that man was! But i instantly recognised him from your blog. He was wearing these amazing red trousers and a navy jacket. I have seen him so many times in your book and it was surreal to bump into him in real life. Mind you, I still dont know who he is but it absolutely made my day! :)
I don't think that you have to be tall to wear a long skirt! You have to be slim and the skirt has to be narrow. The flouncy peasanty skirts of yore, make everyone, no matter how svelt, look a little wide and gypsy-mama-ish. Long, narrow skirts look so fab and Edwardian, like Downton Abbey. A much better look than Little House on The Prarie or Little Yurt in Vermont.
I love how her skirt is being blown in the wind as she walks down the street! You are such an amazing photographer, and many of your shots are very dynamic, but I think this may be my favourite ever. Even her expression- she has so much story in her eyes.
This photo is perfection: 1. Interesting pose with the turn of her body, you wonder what she heard or is looking for 2. Beautiful drape and movement of skirt, flowing in the air 3. Enigmatic expresson on her face with beautiful morning side lighting 4. Background going to vanishing point on horizon to lower left of image, giving this picture a wonderful movement and visual interest
5. Background characters which also seem to be captured at just the perfect moment 6. The whole movement sweeping down and to left, with the exception of that fantastically placed plaid blanket or scarf 7. The jewelry, the fur, the clutch held close… it is breathtaking 8. The pleats in the skirt, the complete outfit is amazing 9. The overall composition of heavy and light, dark and bright, angular and soft… all so beautiful
This is the kind of photo I wish I could see as a painting, it is not only a visual feast but esquisitely beautiful.
Congratulations on capturing lightning in a bottle on this photo.
Wow. Who IS she? How great to have the sort of life that gives the reason and the means to dress so beautifully. The outfit itself levitates me; with the bag it sends me into the stratosphere. Really powerful photograph.
OAU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS OUTFIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the girl is gourgeous……….and the photo…………..it's just breathtaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
how dramatic is this picture! i completely fell in love with it. the angle of the skirt, the line in her neck, the expression in her eyes. and all just walking with a cup of coffee. the wind does gorgeous things to people.
Dear Scott, you might not have the time to answer this one..but I was wondering how tall was the beautiful lady whose picture you just posted. I am not very tall myself and I would like to know.. is it a look that fits taller women..or is it a look that makes you look taller?(not that it is a problem..but I really would love to try a look that gives me that "statuesque" look.
Mr Schuman, although I criticized some of your choices in the past, here you deserve nothing but accolades. Brilliant composition, dynamics, background, it seems like a fleeting moment (even if it wasn't) and the mark of the times – a cup of coffee in hand. Very nice.
I love this photo. Her face, outfit, jewellery are fabulous. I will try to wear long skirts this season. I hope it is comfortable when I will be in hurry. Anyway I start looking for the same skirt. This girl looks absolutly fantastic.Her look is admirable.
This is one of my favorite photos! I recently came across your site browsing & I LOVE your work! Definitely a new look for my blog roll. I love this photo. Her style & look strongly resemble Rachel Zoe, to the point I thought it was her for a split second at first! Gorg…. http://allthingsmish.com
I keep coming back to this picture and I just thought of why after reading an article in the wall street journal. Her stance reminded me of something I learned while studying Greek and Roman statue architecture but couldn't recall the words. Here is a modified excerpt from the article: The pose rotates the figure on its vertical axis. This compositional technique, employed by both ancient and modern Classicists, helps account for the monumental effect. With her head facing left and leg turned, the torso faces straight out, and the foot of the weight bearing leg angles right. This axial rotation makes the pose read as both static and dynamic. This spatially active presence allows it to dominate rather than be diminished by its environment.
I have been logging on every couple of weeks for a long time. What I love about your shots are when I see something that opens my eyes to a whole new way to wear pieces that are in my closet, be they newly purchased or old friends waiting to be made new again. These are people wearing clothes…not strutting down the runway is some unwearable garments! Thanks cp in palm springs ca
Her outfit reminds me of The frent Lieutenant's Woman – yet not quite – love the hugw plaid shawl and I am glad long is back. her combo of clothing and bunched jewelry works – etheral beauty captured, too.
This is incredibly beautiful. Also, I think without the bracelets and watch, it would not be the same. They do something to the outfit, and it is so wonderful! Also, just a beautiful woman, so that helps.
This is absolutely gorgeous. I love her skirt and hair blowing together-the wind almost works as an accessory for her. Would be amazing without the coffee-still,love it as is,maybe even more because the coffee actually deciphers that shes not on a shoot-which would be difficult to indicate considering the perfection. She just looks like such a strong woman.
