      I just realised that I photographed them about a month ago when I got my little Fuji camera. A couple other photographers were snapping them from across the street. I wonder if they just spend their time roaming around Soho looking awesome? I mean, if I were them, I would..

      The dress is super pretty, but I wonder if it would be as eye catching if not for the contrast to her sleek buzz cut. This really shows you how hair can make every item of clothing mean something different. So great!

    This is summer NYC, kids. Pure Sexy. They are both effortlessly cool. But that slight lift of her heel…and the bend of her leg…we all know that kind of kiss. Superb street photography.

    I have been following The Sartorialist since day one. The talent was always unquestionable. But is it just me, or do other readers feel like it just keeps getting better? The last month or so I have been amazed time after time.

    Wow, what a stunner! So much going on beyond fashion–the background, the subway stair, the subjects’ faces, shoes and legs. the way his shirt and her dress are so companionable! Did you ask to shoot them, did they pose? I want to know the whole story.

    this kiss is so not passionate, it ruins the photo. is it an American thing? do you guys seriously think you can see love in this photo? I really can’t.

    • Stephanie

      May 31, 2013 at 11:07 am

      Whoa there! I don’t think there are many places in the world where a full-out passionate kiss in the street is all that appropriate? Anyway, it’s certainly uncool to suggest that it’s an “American thing” just because there aren’t enough sparks for your taste. Be nice :)

      The girl’s legs are killer and I love the formal little sandals. I’d like to look like that!

      • Nora

        June 2, 2013 at 12:41 pm

        I didn’t really mean that I wanted to see a French kiss on the photo. passion can be seen in so many different ways – in my opinion, this couple RIGHT HERE don’t even touch each other in a way that I could believe they are in love. and again, about touching: no need for the guy to put his hands in the girls panties, there can still more sparks than here… sorry for hurting any Americans, I was just surprised that so many of the comments were about the amazing love between these people. well, I can’t see that.

        • Ttonia

          June 2, 2013 at 9:55 pm

          Passion does not mean love and passionate love does not have to be obvious to everyone around. A tender kiss on someone’s forehead or touching someone’s face says “i love you”. A simple gaze can convey love AND passion. There is great beauty in subtle expressions of love as well. The love and passion people share does not have to be obvious to you. Perhaps this couple were just about to part ways and gave each other a quick little kiss; or they were mid sentence in a conversation and decided to sneak a little kiss. A photo is a very brief moment in time…seconds. Who knows what happened seconds before or after the shot was taken? .

          And why the American comment? I am not American and I find this generalization to be unnecessary since fans from all over the world leave comments on this site.

          I don’t know if they are in love or not. But I do know that they look bloody fabulous. Thanks for the uplifting photo, Sart.

          • Sherion

            June 3, 2013 at 4:43 am

            You just have to look at his closed eyes to see the depth of that kiss, great shot

    • Hannah

      June 5, 2013 at 10:56 am

      You also don’t know if this picture was “posed” or natural. If Scott asked to take the picture first, they may feel a bit more stiff than they normally would. Your comment about Americans is rather ignorant, as sweeping generalizations often are.

    Great looking people and outfits!

    I live in the US and when I kiss my man on the street I get two kinds of reactions:
    - frown for an inappropriate display of love
    - “so cool, you must be European!” (we sort of are)
    I am not sure what’s wrong in kissing (even more passionately) in public. It is allowed even in unrated movies!
    It must be envy :-)

If this shaven look for African American women catches on it will definitely bring the groove of groovy back. Sexy, strong, definitive and super stylin’! Thank you for this Scott – for the taking me back to the days and the times. The subway entrance and the rhythms of the clothes, the people and the shot. Altogether an all-American tempo…I can diggit!

    Love the photo! And I love that she has super short / shaved hair! Short hair for women, yeah!!!

    But I’d have to agree with the minority here that his body language seems to imply that he’s not as into her as she is into him. It’s almost like he’s just lounging and being cool and then tells his woman to come give him a kiss. I’d feel a lot more comfortable if his hand that’s resting on his stomach was resting on the small of her back instead.
    But, of course, a photo is just one captured instant, so to give the photo the benefit of the doubt, I could also imagine that this is the instant before he takes his arm off the railing and his other hand off his own stomach and puts his arms around her instead. Like she’d just come out of the subway and surprised him with a kiss of greeting, and this was right before he had time to react.
