The fluidity of her look is wonderful — the dress, her hair, her walk her beautifully sleek figure. Stunning woman, beautiful shot.

this might be the best bandage dress I've seen… and such elegance! wow!

Perfect shot Scott.
too tight for my taste (or body for that matter… lol) cool design though. She's got a great bod for it!
September 22, 2009 at 5:17 pm
I was tired of bandage dresses until I saw this!
September 22, 2009 at 5:19 pm
Fantastic picture. I'd love to see this in one in high resolution

isn't that zani gugelmann???
September 22, 2009 at 5:23 pm
I love the dress and the way the different coloured fabrics have been shaped and put together.
September 22, 2009 at 5:24 pm
I thought I was totally over bandage dresses, but this one is amazing! I like her discreet accessorizing, and the motion of the shot is gorgeous.
The Sunlight District
That dress is gorgeous! I want. I want now. Even if it does make me wanna hit the gym hardcore. If that's an elastic around her wrist, that's super cool. Not only is she stylish, but she's ready for anything.
September 22, 2009 at 5:29 pm
Simplicity rules. A stunning dress, what very cool construction. And she wears it with grace, not taking away from the dress with accessories that are too distracting.
it's cold here – but i so want to wear this dress!
September 22, 2009 at 5:30 pm
Nice Hervé Léger's dress! And she has a perfect silhouette!
September 22, 2009 at 5:32 pm
Wow, just wow. Totally Breathtaking.

She looks beautiful, sleek, powerful, happy in her skin! Another fabulous photo! I agree that it is an elegant bondage dress!
September 22, 2009 at 5:36 pm
So gorgeous, so elegant …
September 22, 2009 at 5:38 pm
Beautiful! And quite scary at first, because she kind of looks like me- and my name is Astrid as well..
September 22, 2009 at 5:40 pm
beautiful beyond she is
September 22, 2009 at 5:42 pm
wow, she looks gorgeous. The dress looks great on her!

Is there anything this woman can't wear? Simply stunning!
September 22, 2009 at 5:45 pm
Nossa, maravilhoso. Adoro esses vestidos juntinhos! É muito glamuroso.
This dress is amazing, I wish I could pull it off. I want to know who it's from!
the cut and the subtle change of solour is divine.. The one shoulder dress, the clutch and the classic stilletos.. It's a match made in heaven(!)
September 22, 2009 at 5:48 pm
Her name is Zani Gugelman. Socialite/jewelry designer. She makes simple, elegant, sexy, look so effortless. doesn't hurt that she's got a bangin bod!
Like Anon 5:40 said, Beyond Beautiful.
great eye Sart. the dress is so subtle and understated that I can hardly believe it's a leger. I mean, the hemline! It's almost MODEST! almost :Pand I hate to say it, but the car actually adds to the shot. The slick shoes and shoulder play so nicely off the matte dress.
Gorgeous!!! I want to be her (just for a day)
September 22, 2009 at 5:55 pm
Gorgeous…and no stupid tattoos in sight.
September 22, 2009 at 5:57 pm
wow! this is my favorite picture of all time! ever!

September 22, 2009 at 5:58 pm
I love that it she not overly accessorized (just the swath of bare skin) making it all the more casual, fun, edgy, young, fresh.
September 22, 2009 at 6:02 pm
September 22, 2009 at 6:03 pm
so beautiful and chic! i love the top!
September 22, 2009 at 6:05 pm
Beautiful. If I had that body that's all I would wear, ever. The shoes are also exquisite.
September 22, 2009 at 6:08 pm
Oh yes. Beautiful!
September 22, 2009 at 6:14 pm
what a shot!!!what a vision!!!what a woman!!!
September 22, 2009 at 6:19 pm
stunning elegant and brilliant use of shade as opposed to colour.
September 22, 2009 at 6:20 pm
yes yes yes!!!
September 22, 2009 at 6:24 pm
god she looks a beautiful.
ive wanted that leger number for quite some time, but… lack of funds. ah well.

September 22, 2009 at 6:57 pm
Zani is stunning. She knows how to wear that body.
September 22, 2009 at 7:16 pm
Like as always I say. Beauty, glamour, elegance, or you have or not. doesnt matter WHOM SHE IS, SHE IS A SUCH FABULOUS WOMAN AND OF COURSE THANKS TO THE FOTOGRAPHER. A+++++++++++
September 22, 2009 at 7:21 pm
she looks so regal and striking love the dress and the whole photo! SSx
September 22, 2009 at 7:25 pm
beautiful…stunning…sexy.what im most content with is her choice of heels…there are some extreme looking pumps out there and she settled for a classic sleek look not taking anything away from this gem of a dress great pic by the way.
September 22, 2009 at 7:30 pm
Mamma mia! Che bella…
Perfect dressing for a toned body…you go girl!
September 22, 2009 at 8:02 pm
Wow! It fits her like a glove! So beautiful!
September 22, 2009 at 8:06 pm
How elegant! This woman should model, she is so classy and clothes must always look this perfect on her!!!
Beautiful! Her clothing suits her amazingly toned body. I want those arms! ha ha…
September 22, 2009 at 8:08 pm
This is such an amazing bandage dress! Love the color blocking/color fading!
September 22, 2009 at 8:16 pm
One of the top shots on this site ever.
The dress and its wearer are remarkable enough, but the background of the shiny car and its windshield mirrors the dress's energy.
You've got to be lucky to be a great photographer. And you're lucky.
September 22, 2009 at 8:34 pm
oh la la.
September 22, 2009 at 8:44 pm
i think i could wear this dress everyday for the rest of my life and be totally happy. perfection.
September 22, 2009 at 9:01 pm
For me, this photo is not about her. It's about all the light…
I love how the light just barely hits her hair. The light gliding on her shoulders and collar bone…the headlight of the car giving her thighs an unusual glow…this is absolutely my favourite photo of yours. Though you'll probably top this one again….!
beautiful…beautiful, beautiful photo!
September 22, 2009 at 9:03 pm
best photo ever on sartorialist.luxury and privilege, sure.but in this image, this gesture, this moment: all the possibility of the start of the evening.the dream of discovering or, better still, inventing yourself by what you wear, how you stand, how you step into your own life.…like a donatello, no?
September 22, 2009 at 9:06 pm

September 22, 2009 at 9:35 pm
She just takes my visions to new levels~! Thank you for posting this~!
September 22, 2009 at 9:38 pm
Marvelous beauty. Her strength is apparent by the clinch of her jaw; it adds a deeper sense of self worth. Awesome!
September 22, 2009 at 9:42 pm
Less is truly best and she is the best I've seen in a long time. Bravo.
September 22, 2009 at 10:01 pm
Is that a Herve Leger dress? Stunning!
September 22, 2009 at 10:27 pm
She looks almost too good… sort of unreal, which is great. I just wouldn't want to stand next to her.
September 22, 2009 at 10:28 pm
wowi wanna be like her when i grow up…
September 22, 2009 at 10:38 pm
gorgeous dress…something very fluid about it. i did a double take :)

September 22, 2009 at 11:50 pm
By the way, I highly doubt it's possible to take a bad picture of her – no offense Scott!
September 22, 2009 at 11:51 pm
The dress is super.
September 23, 2009 at 12:16 am
Sheesh, this looks like an advertisement.
September 23, 2009 at 12:57 am
Wow! Beautiful photo. The fabric of the dress reminds me of layers found in nature but in grayscale. It doesn't hurt that she is stunning…
September 23, 2009 at 1:02 am
My jaw is on the floor. Yowza.
September 23, 2009 at 2:02 am
gorgeous gorgeous dress!
September 23, 2009 at 2:38 am
I usually see something small that I wish was different. This is not one of those times. She's so beautiful and her emsemble is so tasteful that I only wish I'd been there, too.
Who is she? Where is she going?
i love this! the way the lines in the fabric of her dress emphasising her amazing muscle tone and the elegance of the headlight on her legs is so gracefull. she seems so out of place walking on the street. makes you wonder where she has just been or where she is going. my only minor complaint-she could have had a closed toe shoe.
September 23, 2009 at 3:00 am
Does anyone know who this woman is? She is absolutely stunning. She exudes pure power
September 23, 2009 at 3:16 am
beautiful..n sophisticated are d words for her..!!!
September 23, 2009 at 3:26 am

that dress is the best bandage dress ever!! Whoa!

The Sunlight District – I think it's a Kabbala wristband, not an elastic band.
September 23, 2009 at 5:08 am
only a body like that can wear a dress like that.
September 23, 2009 at 5:15 am
Great look, great shot
September 23, 2009 at 6:07 am
She has really done her physical exercise!!! Wonderful picture as always!

The hair is following the movement of the fabrics in her dress. Such a beautiful photo and gorgeous girl!
September 23, 2009 at 7:16 am
Chic chic.She carries herself beautifully …Fab photo…
September 23, 2009 at 7:35 am
September 23, 2009 at 8:06 am
After falling in love with Herve's creations on net-a-porter it is amazing to see this dress on a gorgeous female, that is not simply is a magazine studio.
This is the first time I have seen a lady on the street where Herve Leger.
This photo represents what dreams are made out of… everything appears perfect, and like they say appearance is everything!
September 23, 2009 at 8:21 am
She is one gorgeous Amazon! The banding and the shading differences on that dress are amazing. How inspiring!
September 23, 2009 at 9:49 am
That's the best picture I've ever seen of her. Well done on your part and hers.
September 23, 2009 at 10:03 am
Wow! Nice picture, nice girl in the perfect body with audacious top

She looks like a Grecian goddess. But is this not too summery for mid Sept? Just taking my clues from the comments one post above.
September 23, 2009 at 11:05 am
A really nice dress
September 23, 2009 at 11:13 am
September 23, 2009 at 11:29 am
Gorgeous figure….but the bandage dress is quite tired…
September 23, 2009 at 11:41 am
SMOKIN… SHE LOOKS SO ELEGANT AND CHIC!
September 23, 2009 at 11:47 am
Wow. Love the shine of the car picked up by the shine of her shoes, the perfect dress length, the lack of accessorizing making this almost sporty, (if the bottom were pants she could be headed to yoga) and above all the simplicity of the shoes–put some bandage wrapped, overarticulated shoe with this and you've ruined the wonderful tonality of the dress and its simple bandage wrap. I like others have come to hate bandage dresses..til this.
September 23, 2009 at 12:09 pm
And tattoo-free! What a relief!
September 23, 2009 at 12:20 pm
Scott, PLEASE let me know if this is by Herve Leger!! If so, I plan to storm the store with my gf (who looks VERY similar to Zani – yes, I have every right to gloat about this)!!!
September 23, 2009 at 12:52 pm
I too love the story the picture conveys. A beautiful woman in Manhattan, obviously successful (hence the Herve Leger) not over the top though. Strong, confident, gorgeous. Heading out for a night on the town not knowing what's in store for the night, but it's sure to be fabulous. Just looking at this photo with the gorgeous lighting, that early twilight between the buildings is perfectly captured here. I can almost feel the cool dry early fall air of that moment. Even without the woman it would be a great photo, but she is perfectly placed in it, makes it that much more amazing!
September 23, 2009 at 12:54 pm
Wow – completely gorgeous – dress and execution! Thank you this!
September 23, 2009 at 1:20 pm
WOW… what a beautiful woman
September 23, 2009 at 1:34 pm
She is simply gorgeous!!
September 23, 2009 at 1:48 pm
she is beautiful and the dress, hwe brown coloring and her not emaciated wonderfully toned self… inspiring of fit-ness and confidence.

Oh my god…..I have to have this dress!

i would give anything for this body. i have a sneaking suspicion that any and all clothes would look stunning on her…

September 23, 2009 at 6:22 pm
It looks very "Serena van der Woodsen" for my taste.
But she could as well be a real life version of serena, so it probably makes sense.
September 23, 2009 at 6:24 pm
Such a great picture.
Nice dress and amazing body,
and great grace,
especially for a transgender.

September 23, 2009 at 10:01 pm
I would KILL to look that good. Flawless!
September 23, 2009 at 10:46 pm
The dress is really pretty. But those dresses look better on people with hourglass figures. Where are the hips?
September 24, 2009 at 12:04 am
She carries the bandage dress very well! Love how the colours give a sense of fluidity.
September 24, 2009 at 12:34 am
September 24, 2009 at 2:08 am
She looks like a film star…Demi-Moore-esque.
September 24, 2009 at 2:18 am
Lucky lady wears lovely art, and in such a fancy photograph! Seeing this dress has forced me to develop a sudden, feverish interest in body-cloths.
September 24, 2009 at 5:21 am
Amazing dress – one of the best I've seen, well, ever. It looks so charming and elegant.
September 24, 2009 at 8:13 am
the guy in the back's suit is throwing me off in this picture, not gonna lie. the dress is amazing, admittedly mainly because the person wearing it has the right curves to show it off – don't think for a second this would work on the average Jane Doe. But yeah, that suit in the background is killing the image as a whole somehow :/ Color scheme is there and all, just the cut leaves much to be desired. (steeper lapel, shorter jacket, narrow pant legs, waist taken in a tad, sleeves & legs shortened a tad – and i'm personally not the biggest fan of DB suit jackets, I guess it would work with some alterations though.)

That same dress was on the presentation models at the Audi stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week!Really beautiful dress.
September 24, 2009 at 2:07 pm
this is one of those photos that inspires and depresses. It inspires because of her wonderful taste and chic, which I have the deepest respect for, and depresses because no matter how hard I work at developing a personal style, I will never look this good.
September 24, 2009 at 2:55 pm

One of the best outfits I've seen in your blog! Very classy yet youthful
September 25, 2009 at 12:55 am
This is one stunning dress! The fit, colors, and pattern are great.
September 25, 2009 at 8:53 am
She is lovely but the dress is too little for the city; perhaps for the beach? She is offering too much and with those legs she doesn't need to show her body so feircely.
September 25, 2009 at 11:14 am
I love everything. Amazing dress, style, beauty and her body reveals that women don´t need to silicone themselfs to be hot. She is sexy, hot, in her natural figure. LOVE IT

In this gorgeous moment I wonder what thought held captive Zani's mind.
September 25, 2009 at 9:40 pm
I love her body, it's toned and has a nice hint of tan in it. Perfect!
September 26, 2009 at 12:43 am
Smooth, sleek and sexy.
September 30, 2009 at 11:09 am
I don't really like to comment or anything but to enjoy your photos.
but i really can't hold myself for this one.
this is incredibly STUNNING!
i just love the colours and its fluidity.
October 5, 2009 at 10:26 am
This is perfect. She's sexy and sophisticated and she has just the right amount of "don't-mess-with-me".
October 28, 2009 at 9:38 am
i concur. this captured moment is the reason the fashion industry exist, so much emotion can be drawn from it. if her execution of the dress, shoes, purse were any more precise it would almost seem staged. it's only flaw is that it's too perfect to be real. it can't be it just can't. life wouldnt be fair if it were

From head to toe, her style is simple, seamless, elegant perfection, yet for whatever reason, remains individual
One of my favourite shots of yours
