She is gorgeous and her facial and bodily expression!–as delicate as it is strong. Perfect haircut for her face shape and the blues and grays really bring out her skin tone and the untreated colour of her hair, whose wispiness is echoed by the fringe of the perfectly proportioned scarf that she is wearing. Everything is so effortlessly contained…
I want the shoes. Are they dark brown or black? I hope they are the chocolate brown hue that has the kind of blue undertones that match the rest of her so well.
yesss!!! it’s so lovely to see how women work with proportions without relying on the tights/skirt/dress combo. what an inspiration!!! definitely copying the look tomorrow. my favourite sartorialiste thus far!
As someone who is trying to transition gracefully from tomboy to something close to androgynous with a little girliness, I love seeing that a woman can pull off a look like this and still look totally sexy. I’m putting this in my inspiration folder. She kinda reminds of Leslie Feist in 20 years.
dude, from one photog to another…great shot. beautiful portrait! wonderful body language, posture, clothes(obviously), the way the window echos her body, thoughtful expression, the nooks/window that balances the composition. sorry, gettin’ geeky here. well done.
awesome outfit, epecially the lenghts of everything and the shoes together with the scarf and the pants. it looks like what i wore today, but my pants had 2 roll-ups of course, because that’s how i roll
Love the outfit but face it; it could have been me… except for the pants, shoes (and the hair). I would have chosen a pair of pants in style of the 40′s (Garbo/Dietrich/Hepburn). All the factors that differs her from me is actually the factors that makes her style fashion-forward, and me… well, quite traditional…
fantastic and why I quit the fashion mags and just look at your wonderful photos. My big wish for you in 08 is to get a money-bags backer (without fashion industry ties and the obligatory ads) to do a wonderful maybe quarterly sartorialist book…perhaps formated like the beautiful RPM books or maybe like the new DWR “yearly books.” your great shots and not-jaded voice and perhaps some interviews with the stylish as opposed to the fashionable. I have been dreaming of this for years.
Why do so many people insist that women smile for the camera?! Men seem to be able to get away with different expressions w/o a chorus of commenters piping up about wanting ‘joie de vivre’ and such…
This is a lovely photograph of a stylish woman who, in my opinion, is made all the more stylish because she isn’t presenting herself as easy/breezy/happy/girlish. The downcast eyes, the hands in the pockets, the meandering foot speaks more about the woman than a ‘smile for the camera’ moment ever would.
