Why do every Mexican has to represent what Mexico is, ought to or should be? You’re angry because she is not in Prada heels and someone else is angry because she is not sporting sandals and braids. The girl is representing herself, period.
I think it’s very clear you haven’t understood the whole point of The Sartorialist pictures. What makes Scott’s pictures so beautiful are all of the details, what that person is trying to communicate through an outfit. This girl could go by unnoticed, but here, she has too much strength and everyone can see that.
I totally agree! There are people who dess like living mannequins just like everywhere else but this shot (a great one) illustrates perfectly the innocence and fierce every Mexican has. The urban style with an autochthonous touch we Mexicans own. Thanks for the honor.
Give me a break! You might be all about the shoes. However, this girl here has presence and substance (she is all kinds of perfect). I bet Scott would get this same photo whether she is sporting walk-all-over-the-DF shoes or red-soled high heels. Style comes from within.
This girl is not representing us, plus this blog is a tribute to everyday lifestyle and street style which is so widely different depending on each individual. From previous photos that Scott has posted, I can say that what he seeks from each portrait is fierce, presence and people embracing their personal style.
She has a lot of that and looks super cute!
I couldn’t disagree more with those that criticize her dirty shoes and simple look. First she’s a kid and kids get shoes dirty. Second she’s nobody’s mannequin – a diamond in the rough city streets. Kudos to Scott for getting at ground zero where even little girls manage stamp their own style with what’s at hand. Viva Mexico – a sad country right now but still with its small graces.
Shes not a kid. She is around nineteen to twenty two. And the shoes are not dirty. They just aren’t brand new. Lots of people who have plenty of cash like worn in stuff, myself included. How shallow. She looks excellent and needs no excuses. Also she looks sexy. She is not a sad country girl, she is hip and very well dressed. I especially love the low waist dress and the green lock of hair. That haircut is well cut and well styled. Love the green dyed lock of hair too. This is a young woman from a big city.
i’m so disapointed about your Mexico’s pics, such an amazing city full of interesting people, and you spent all your time in a gray design school. at least that’s what your pics show. hope you’ll came back soon and could see the real city.
