okay now i really want to go to moscow. these people are so daring and i’d love to wear whatever id like and not have my more extravagant or costume like clothing stay in the back! where in moscow is this? does anyone know?
This seems like out of the Vogue photo shoots of couture plus streetwear, I love that someone is as bold and confident to wear this as an outfit. Kudos to her. Also LOVE the boots. Jorge from W Palm Beach
well, will I be the first? thats kind of scarry! haha Ok so i think the skit is a little too much. It seems to me like a costume.. like she were an actress and were wearing her character’s look under that coat. talking about the coat, omg! it’s amazing and it comunicates wth those boots so well!
Soooooo many things could work in between the jacket & sweater and those boots; her favorite oldest jeans, her newest crispest jeans, men's trousers, a tiny skirt, jodhpurs, houndstooth check chef's pants… so why is she wearing the sheets and curtains? The line between clothes and laundry has been crossed. I do like how the yellow and gray echo behind her on the building.
Good for her! I’d love to see more women dressing like this. She’s not afraid of looking interesting and inventive, rather than just cute or conventionally pretty. Although she is also beautiful. In this pic, at least, she looks quite a bit like Isabella Rosselini.
At first glance it reminded me of how homeless people hang bags off of their grocery carts with different possessions in each one. After looking at the bigger photo though, I am fascinated to see what’s under the coat – is it a dress? A skirt? Love the boots. Thanks for such a thought provoking photo!
I am not sure, that exactly that jacket and that bag are the perfect choice to this “skirt”, but on the other hand, I have no idea, what could be better. It looks like a creamy profiterol (italian dessert).
no, it is not a bad fashion statement. she looks comfortable in her skin and also comfortable in what she is wearing. you know that she isn’t going to be pulling the skirt down because it’s too short nor trying to rest her feet because she’s worn shoes one size too small or 2 inches too high for her feet.
she brings a lot of happiness to the world. a woman looking comfortable, happy and daring: 10/10.
i am sooo happy. finally an unusual look. she has her style. we need more of that from you, because wearing bottega veneta, marni or whatever i can see on marieclaire, or instyle, do not inspire me and make me dare to ewar clothes in liberty like this picture. hope mexy pitti you won’t take pictures only of reactionary italian province.
It’s Audrey Hepburn crossed with a polar expedition. Since it isn’t snowing, she took off her anorak and tied it around her waist. Despite it all, she manages to look darn cute. Seriously, I had to read a bunch of comments before I could make out that was a skirt. Probably IS warm.
By far the best outfit and real personal style from Moscow. I love how she combined the flowing soft shapes of the skirts with the sharp strong lines of the jacket. Not to mention how wonderful it is to see a russian girl not stiletto heels.
The whole outfit is so breathtaking! Standing and applauding! All the three elements go together in such a proper way: sure the skirt takes a lead, but the jacket seems so proper and logical here, so do the boots.
Comfortable, confident and exciting. It does look though like the jacket’s being gradually pushed north by the slowly inflating skirt! The skirt has a kind of absurd 50s couture musical thing to it which I really like. But the poster above is right, this woman is a gift to all who share the street with her and the more like her the better.
I this girl. A skirt really surprising and very beautiful. Thanks Russian designers. The coat and boots only to reach my office along the street ,because it is Moscow and here is cold). Shoes and a jacket and do not worry all is perfectly. Thanks scott.
One comment says “I always give points for guts.” It’s exactly what I want to say looking at this picture. I would like to add that without people like her who dare to wear the unusual and the unconventionnal, we would still be wearing bear skins. Remember that the first person – an English guy – who walked in the street with an umbrella was really made fun of.
what the he@l? no, really – what the he@l?! i even think this looks “good” yet i still ask: what the he@l?! a little back story would be helpful here. not enough to post “a la a picture is worth 1000 wds” – ‘cz: what the he@l?!
I love the boots. So shiny! But to be honest I doubt that this skirt or dress is meant for the streets. i would bet she’s a dancer or actress and this is her costume! I would be very surprised if she was wearing this out! If so… Well awesome! The world just got a little brighter and better!!!
agree w/ anon at 1:48. i say heels would be far more uncomfortable than wearing this! think about what women put themselves through just to look good to the world! how bout adding a little whimsy? much more interesting and inspiring!
HA!! it’s me as a woman! telling the whole world to piss off and that I’m going to wear exactly what the fashion historians have been telling me what not to wear for centuries all at once. AND yes I HAVE made it look chic!!
My word. . Love is not even strong enough of a word for me to share with you my emotions towards this woman. She is my Allah.
This shot looks great against the backdrop because the scene hints at all the colours she has going on in her voluminous skirt. One of my favourites for sure, though not a look I could pull off on most London streets!
At first glance I thought this woman was carrying a load of laundry! Don't dig the plaid jacket. Maybe a white jacket would have worked better. And a plain tissue thin grey tank top with ballerinas or a heel.
