    There’s nothing sexier than a woman playing a musical instrument. Nothing.

    She’s very cute but doesn’t look like she’d be strong enough to carry that thing around. Boots.

    • Martine

      July 19, 2012 at 3:34 pm

      Cellos are hardly heavy. But I am quite sure she has no shortage of boys who would love to carry it for her. Or trade places with it for that matter.

      • susan e

        July 20, 2012 at 11:46 pm

        in an instrument case, yeah, they are. not crazy, but for her it probably is. i carry around one for my husband sometimes when he needs help unloading his.

    • Hilary

      July 24, 2012 at 5:13 pm

      Well, this is a style blog, not a “hotness” blog, so as long as she was still well-dressed and confidently owning what she was wearing, I think we can assume she would’ve made the site regardless.

    July 19, 2012 at 11:12 am

    You can see all the details from the fringes of her tee or shorts to the woodveins of her cello. Wonderful picture, full of soul and sound !

  61. Niia

    July 19, 2012 at 11:17 am

    OMG! Just beautiful in so many ways. Bright aqua in back is so cool with the black of her clothes in the foreground. Cellists are usually wearing austere long black skirts. Love her shorts (or short skirt?) and her knowing, curious expression. Wonder what this gorgeous, musical girl was thinking about or looking at.

  62. Mary

    July 19, 2012 at 11:17 am

    The drummer on lead vocals, an accordion player, acoustic guitar, electric bass, and a string instrument…sounds like The Band.

    Her look, her attitude, her ability to play music–all are pretty much exactly what I wanted when I was her age. Amazing. I hope she’s enjoying them all!

  74. Sevan

    July 19, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    Cello is my favorite instrument. This young woman’s haunting eyes and her style are captivating but it’s also helped by the graduating background’s shapes and colors.
    I love the light and shade on the ground.
    Beautiful photo.

    Yes you always capture such great fashion, but please tell me, how do you so often (always?) capture the PERSON?? I model for a living and struggle to communicate such realism and personality to the camera. How do you get it from people as you’re just walking down the street?
    Please PLEASE answer!

      July 19, 2012 at 3:42 pm

      I also often wonder how Scott always seems to get better results from people on the street then every other photographer can get from the best models. I would love to know his secret. Although its probably not something that can be described in words or reproduced.

    • Rebecca

      July 23, 2012 at 8:38 pm

      As a photographer myself I’d say it’s practice, born of the desire to achieve something, melded with an exceptional eye. But the eye can be trained, so it’s back to practice again. Of the footage I’ve seen of Scott working, he works quickly, so the moment isn’t lost and people have no time to recompose themselves. In the footage he also seeks permission, so with consent given he is free to operate how he needs to. With regard to expression, some people seem to be open and expressive and make this available to the camera, others seem to be much more guarded with their expression. When I (rarely) work with models I select them based on this. So perhaps Scott has edited out those who did not feel comfortable giving something of themselves to the camera.

    July 19, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    amazing photograph. as someone who reluctantly played the cello for years i can tell you that’s it’s not the easiest thing in the world to look natural much less cute while saddled with a large string instrument. she manages that and then some.

    This is a wonderful photo! Not only is she beautiful, but the boots and dress are so cool against the blue background. Wish I could hear what the music was like.

  87. Kurt Feero

    July 19, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Such a hauntingly beautiful girl…I would think she is one of those young women who the word “style” is more relevant than “fashion”. Her haircut proves too that short can be just as sexy as long when well done. I don’t think boys are objecting to it on her! She is simply beguiling! Congrats on capturing her magic! My only nitpick and this only because of our horrific heat here in the US…the boots make me hot just to look at them. Any other time? Great, but I don’t know how someone could put that much shoe on? But that is so minor, trust me. Great image!

  88. Mary

    July 19, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Would love to know what music she’s playing!

  92. Vang

    July 19, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    I like the draping of her simple black dress, her hair, and her boots. It’s an edgy look for the the classic instrument. But I also love how the moment was captured, you can just hear the music flowing from photograph.

  93. Diva In me

    boots and shorts together? When it’s warm enough for shorts it’s too hot for boots, they don’t really work in the same temperature range.

    but she looks strong and concentrated :-)

  99. Martine

    July 19, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    The look in her eyes is like she wants to prove someone wrong or defy the odds in some way. The cello is simply her medium for doing so. Love the passion – phenomenal photo.

    its sort of a mix from the classical instrument of the cello mixed with the black “rocker” style boots. Its such a brilliant photo.x

    A Dutch (no, Belgian) book by Dimitri Verhulst starts with a lovely sentence about women playing cello, how the spreading of the legs of a woman playing cello is the nicest of all kinds of leg-spreading. She is beautiful.
