WOW !How amazing would it be to look like that & wear those shoes!!But mostly I love the wild hair with the way the light parts look reddish.& with the yellow & black in the picture-really great shot!!
I don’t know why so many people with hair like this always straighten their hair. I have the “ideal” straight hair but I’m quite frankly envious of the big volume here and movement of her hair. Oh well…I guess it’s one of those “grass is greener” situations.
I always feel that it is by a wave of good fortune that catches a picture in the right moment. This looks to me like one of those days. I can’t decide whether it’s the red color against her skin, or the red dress on her body that’s making me say “wow!” Either ways, it’s both! I have to say that there’s something very feminine and masculine at the same time, her arms look very manly-strong (impact added by the wrist watch – looks great, I think), while the shoes look very daintily feminine, a perfect balance of the elements.
I highly doubt that you knew this when you took the photo, but this is the mirror image of a scene from the “Felicity” opening credits (see 0:17-0:18 in the below video): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xu4HjT9–r0
Yes – she looks great! But in the end you seem to have captured a perfect momnet in time. Her ‘pose’ says something about women and the city and control that I simply can’t describe. This is why I check in everyday -Bravo!!
I actually think that the hair covering her face adds a lot to the photo because more focus is drawn to the dress and her amazing body. The tight, bright dress works so well on her because she has accessorized so well and her body is so ideally woman. She looks iconic.
The red contrast against the yellow cab in such a dreary urban area are fabulous. She is extremely hot in this red number with a body to go with it, though I always found that style should be effortless and feel comfortable at the same time. This figure looks as if she is “struggling” with comfort on numerous levels.
Love seeing girls with the same crazy hair like mine. Its’ so funny how people always talk about how “cool” or “hip” it is. The fact is, yeah, all that but without the help of some stylist who can blow dry the hell out of it (and that takes hours, and I’ve had stylists give up in the middle of blow drying it) it’s hard to look polished. And the hair is such an attention getter that often a hat or a ponytail (or pony puff in my case) is the only way to stay under the radar on those days when I’m not looking for chats with strangers. I’m lucky in that my hair suits my lifestyle but there are those moments when I’d like to look something other than “cool” or “hip”. A rich man’s dilemma, I know.
Girls with this hair I’d love to hear what you do for something different.
Anyway….. The dress is kind of 80′s to me and not one I love but I must say if you’re gonna wear it, wear the hell out if it like this lady. Great body. Not skinny, shapely.
I think this is my favorite shot yet! She is beautiful, and that dress is just perfect with her body, skin tone, and hair color. This is a woman who knows how to wear a simple piece and make it look faaaaantastic with just her body and few simple accessories. WOW!
OK! She’s stunning…yumi body doubtless! nice shot… one of a kind! Red upper-thigh dress…is not so evident… is it? honestly, she’s shouting… LOOK AT MEEEEEEEE!!! miles away. i do reckon too much samantha ‘SOTC on the city’ mood.
first the woman whose dress gets blown by the bus & now this one! incredible! I want to see the face that goes with the body (did you get any other shots of her?) but at the same time I like the mystery of not being able to see her. love how spontaneous it is. the cel phone is a nice touch also – the modern woman in the age of technology – strong, feminine, sexy & on the go! works not only as a fashion image but a great picture in itself – well done!
I don’t see anything special about this outfit whatsoever…typical outfit you see a dime a dozen girls wearing in a night club. Plus, here in the afternoon, it looks very streetwalker-ish. Just my humble opinion…
aaah yes, behold the power of the crackberry!! Standing in the middle of the street with traffic whizzing by her,fixing her shoe, lusty men drooling all around her, and yet…completely oblivious to it all, completely focused on that blackberry screen. LOL. I love it!
I know it’s been said but I think this lady deserves some hefty appraisal. DAMN GIRL. She is very very hot. If you have a body like that you best wear whatever the hell you please to show it off. THIS is how you wear AA jersey boys and girls, you make sure you’ve got the goods first. Sad but true, not everyone can spray on their clothes and look fine at it.
for me this shot is pure perfection, everything about the girl is awesome; the colour of the dress, the fit, it simply blows me away. i actually find it quite painful to look at, her hair is awesome and its accentuated by the wind. sart you’ve caught this shot perfectly. I applaud you.
Lovely picture; you’re an excellent photographer. The cinematic feel almost makes the AA double U neck dress worth it. Otherwise it’s quite a plain outfit. This photo generally makes me happy I have crazy curly hair just like she does.
Her red form fitting dress screams confidence and sexiness. Yet, she can multitask. I guess New Yorkers are known for style and function. However, I think her slingbacks are causing her trouble, but made a great shot!
After noticing the Lucia/Seiko ad (which I thought was great, pulled from a real shot, it’s the watch) I think this one would be perfect for Blackberry. It’s a fantastic capture, everything about captures the freedom, the movement, the dynamic lifestyle and pure sexiness that fits right in with what BB is trying to be. This is what everyone in NYC wishes they were!
She must spend days at a time in the gym to look like that… I have dreamed of owning such amazing hair. But alas, I am a white girl, and mine is as flat as can be. Dare I perm it? Eee! I’m still too afraid to try!
Perfection! Very NY with the yellow cab and the sewer.. If American Apparel were to do an ad for this dress, they won’t do anything close to this! She has the perfect body for the dress, very sexy, yet very real… The fact that we can’t see her face is more exciting and leaves more to our imaginations..
Wow, I am totally speechless on this one. The photo is just amazing- it makes me think of the post you wrote about capturing the right moment, timing… Everything seems to be in the right place here. Fantastic capture.
In a blog with so many great photos featuring self expression, for some reason this one grabbed my attention and never really let go. For me, this photo seems to personify the youth and spirit of New York City. Young at heart, and always caught up in the moment.
The simplicity – yet utter beauty – of this photo and this outfit is gorgeous! The woman’s understated shoes show off her simple and flattering dress. Another simple yet outfit-enhancing shoe style is the Camper Women’s Kim 21241 Mary Jane Pump Shoe.
