            Glad to know the info dear Susana , you confirm my theory of because of that thing with the needles that they’re doing to they’re face most of the girls in the planet the last years , they succeed to look like near or less the same..
            I think is that for the comment from dear Kat..

            People look beautiful and ugly everywhere. And people this age don’t have Botox. Its great for older people though as it lessens headaches and relaxes your tense face muscle.
            Kat is right; This lovely woman does look rather slavic no matter where she is from.

        Reminds me the chat between Vesper and Bond in Casino Royale, but his was an Omega and not a Rolex.
        That girl is the proof that God exists: such beauty can’t be randomness (and she knows it: look at her expression!).

        • Petite

          April 12, 2013 at 11:28 am

          Random in the sense of evolution is that extreme beauty could be equally possible as extreme non-goodlooking, and the distribution of average looking people is probably more likely than both extreme beauty and extreme non-goodlooking.

          • Olaf

            April 12, 2013 at 6:00 pm

            Random in no sense.
            It was a joke: I thought it was enough obvious, but I was wrong.
            Is this the case of “average looking people”? I’d say not, so why to talk about them? (even though, according to your interpretation, the concept itself of beauty loses of meaning).
            God (again) saves us from “political correct at any cost”.
            Anyway, why should evolution has anything to do with beauty?
            Anyway #2: how did a bikini lead to such conversation?!

          • Simon

            April 13, 2013 at 4:25 am

            You can also say that average people failed specimens of nature. And that beautiful specimens like this lady, well succeeded.

      But who really wants to see ugly or fat girls , or the poorly-dressed women of NYC ???

      • LIZPR

        April 11, 2013 at 9:15 pm

        Whoa. JJ Michelini. Nowhere did Madeline say “ugly or fat girls”, or the “poorly-dressed women of NYC” … and um, let’s not forget, Scott shoots MEN, TOO.

        It is possible not to have the “standard” hot body or model’s body but be beautiful, stylish, whether or not you’re short, curvy, thick-waisted, above fifty, … and, if you review the photos, there are plenty of men who are NOT fit at all, with grey hair (gasp) or even bushy eyebrows (oh, horror!).


      • vandal

        April 11, 2013 at 11:52 pm

        “But who really wants to see ugly or fat girls” you are part of the disease in society which causes people to have eating disorders. I WANT to see ugly, fat, and all kinds of people. Some of us see charms and beauty and character where you see “fat”, you narrow-minded shallow…

        Surely true creativity and beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s easy to look good with the perfect genes and massive bank balance, the real art comes from working with more limitations and coming up with something amazing.

        I have to agree with Madeline, this blog is becoming more and more about the elite rather than about imagination. It’s a real shame!

        Yes indeed how could we bare to gaze upon ugly, poor people… The very idea! Thank you for reminding me why I walked away from the fashion biz.

    • crossing-sweeper

      April 12, 2013 at 5:33 am

      Agreed! Sometimes I look back at the Sart archives, which I adore, and wish we could get back to the early days and those fabulous shots of interesting, creative types wearing clothes that were original and told a story about them. This bikini shot could come from any glossy mag, anywhere.

      • The Sartorialist

        April 12, 2013 at 5:57 am

        for crossing-sweeper
        you don’t see the photo right before this one? the guy in the snow ? or all of the Rockabilly shots last week? i think your comment is a perfect example of people only commenting on things they want to complain about.

        • crossing-sweeper

          April 12, 2013 at 6:37 am

          I am so sorry Scott that you think I’m only commenting to complain. On the contrary, it’s because I find your site and your images so intensely pleasurable that I feel stung by any departure from what I feel is the Sartorialist vision. I’ve been following the site since 2007 and being prone in life and style to nostalgia I rather miss those early, delightfully amateurish shots of people who, well, looked many of them rather like me … What self-indulgence!

          • The Sartorialist

            April 12, 2013 at 7:23 am

            thanks for your reply. I think what you say is very true. Many people come here looking to find themselves reflected in the people I shoot. I totally understand that, however, when I’m shooting I have to just react to what I’m seeing and figure out what it means later. To be honest I think there’s no fewer shots of creative people but actually many more shots and more variety, so the shots are jumbled more than in the past. (in 2007 I posted 2 a day, now usually 4)….but thats exactly what I like….the jumble, chaotic , mix of life!

          • LIZPR

            April 12, 2013 at 1:28 pm

            I think the whole point of this dialogue is to acknowledge evolution. The Sartorialist of 2013 (or 2020, for that matter) will be different than the Sartorialist of 2007.

            I like that there is a variety of shots … and while I will still question some of the shots (“how is this about fashion/style/sartorialism”?) I’ll still look it over and try to understand the lighting, composition, or the fact that it caught a beautiful, random moment.

            I see more and more “capture the moment” shots that may not have anything to do with street style per se …. and I’ll enjoy them. That’s why I think you’ll need another tab for those particular shots.

            Thank you,

          • Amy

            April 13, 2013 at 2:34 pm

            I’m not sure this is the sort of thing you’d see in a magazine… The reason I’ve always loved this blog is because it celebrates beauty in all of its many forms. Sometimes that’s an overweight man, sometimes it’s an older lady, sometimes it’s someone as physically gorgeous as this. The joy of this shot is that it celebrates the genuine beauty of the woman and of that moment. There’s not a jot of airbrushing. Scott’s photographs don’t enhance the people captured, it just draws their beauty into better focus.

            If there were more shots like this on the covers of magazines I’d buy more of them.

        • SQ

          April 12, 2013 at 11:32 am

          I find this very upsetting, this is a site for people to appreciate art not attack it, yet many of the commenters seem to find it easier to criticise your work than find the beauty in it. If you come to this site to find pictures of people that look just like you than how can you argue that you are looking for variety? If you dislike the concept of a conventional standard of beauty then don’t promote it by defining what is or is not typically attractive by claiming that this woman is while earlier subjects were less so. It is completely self-contradictory.

          • Kia

            April 14, 2013 at 1:58 pm

            I completely agree SQ! Art can be found in everything, why should readers condone Scott for providing us with a wonderful, gorgeous woman that is in fact art, just as the other, more eclectic shots of his are.

    I find the human body so inspiring, so beautiful, so passionate. And have no problem with sexiness, either. I love it! But I can’t help but feel this is something closer to a magazine ad…she looks like she is modeling. What I love about this blog is the way personality is captured in both dress and pose- body language being inseparable from style. I don’t feel I have learned much about this woman and there isn’t any style to be inspired by. I am curious as to why you took the shot? Yes, a beautiful body, but it seems out of place with the vision of your blog. I barely noticed the watch; I was too busy looking at her idealized chest and stomach (though I do appreciate it isn’t photoshopped the way a magazine would – I give you that.)

    Reminds very much of Bond and so many other movies of the girl coming out of the water onto the shore to admiring eyes. Very sexy yet with a suit that is by today/s standards demure. The curves and attitude make the picture!

  41. Rebecca

    April 11, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Who would have thought people would respond to a lovely picture like this with requests for more variety, and complaints of idealized beauty? It’s unreasonable to expect every picture to represent all walks of life. Also – some people really do look like this naturally, and that’s ok…this is one of the many body types out there…it seems like a limited point of view to always associate the above body type with the many flaws of the fashion & modeling industries. I would have expected complaints of idealized body parts under pictures of a designer show, not at the beach. Maybe the issue isn’t with the picture, but with the baggage the viewers bring (myself included) to its interpretation.

    April 11, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    This makes me dream. I want to go to the beach now and wear a bikini even though I normally don’t wear bikinis and I don’t look like her. I first noticed her face and then I saw her body. I admit I had a mixed reaction. I thought, should I not like it because she’s so stereotypically beautiful? Then after reading some comments, it made me think. Ultimately, this photo is about a moment in time and space and yet it is equally fascinating to me what it has revealed in some of the viewers. She may represent idealized beauty to some people but this photo doesn’t capture her in an idealized way.

    We still see the expression on her face and the way she carries herself which results in something so minimal and beautiful. I think this photo still reflects her personality in what she chose to wear. To me, she is strong and not afraid to show her body. I think this photo is successful in embracing her and not objectifying her. She is just like any other individual who has been featured and just happens to look the way she does. And to purposefully exclude such a photo would contradict the idea of being inclusive and to celebrate different individuals’ choices.

    I think we can all appreciate the photo for what it is and not constantly compare it to other women or people, pitting women against eachother, saying that she’s too idealized or that she’s not unique enough. I mean I don’t know what would make her more unique, like should she cover her body or something just because it’s too ideal for you? Women’s choices and bodies receive enough criticism already.

      So well expressed! I agree, the comments on this simple photo reveal so much about how people think women should look. It reminds me of an article I read recently that addresses this topic from a slightly different angle, here is the link:

      My favorite quote from this article: “The only thing we should be shaming, when it comes to what women do, is our weird cultural need to maintain control over other women’s bodies.”

    ugh what a bore. Haven’t we seen this narrow portrayl of “beauty” a hundred times daily, on every billboard and magazine ad media. Could we please have an evolution of the varieties of women portrayed. I am still a huge fan of your photography, but think you can do much more interesting work.

    • Elisabeth

      April 12, 2013 at 9:04 am

      I agree (re my comment above). To me, it is not a question of how fit or beautiful she is and that it would be better if she looked less like a model, I just don’t see the point of bikini models from a fashion/photo perspective, at least not on this blog.

    Beautiful shot, makes me want to jump into the Med right now, but it´s still too cold for me :(
    BTW, what´s wrong with being gorgeous like this girl? It´s a celebration of life. Have we come to the point where beauty has to be hidden in order to be politically correct? Is she or any other beauty more “unreal” because she happens to be easy on the eye? Some of you folks scare me ever so slightly…

      So true, just because we envy natural beauty doesn’t mean we should insult it. Of course when I saw this picture I thought ‘I wish I looked like that’ but I didn’t feel the need to write some derogatory comment to make myself feel better.

    I agree with some of the comments in the sense that these knds of shots are not the most interesting part of your work but they show a more open mind approach to photography and to life at the end of the day….Peep Chill out!

    New exercise routine – turn your head to look at a croissant, stretch your right arm to reach the plate with the abovementioned pastry. Now gather all your physical strength and will power and puuuuuuuuuuuuuush that plate away. Repeat if necessary depending on the number of croissants.
    First step to the above picture body is now made.

    I think this is a great shot! Truly inspiring that someone can look that good in real life! I don’t really find that annoying or that her amazing body degrades the quality of the shot.

    Interesting that almost no one has commented on her bikini, with its happy, brightly colored print, and its unusually cut bottom. You’d think on a fashion blog that there would be more interest in her attire.

    I was told one that Nora Ephron wrote (in I’m Not Happy With My Neck) that if she new then, what she knew now (I believe she was in her 60′s at the time) she would have worn a bikini every day when she was a teenager.

    Such great pics from Rio! However, this is my favourite because the girl is so natural and just seems so cofident and loving her life! Fabulous. This makes me crave a new book from you ASAP.

    This is what I’d like to see in the annual Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated! It reminds me of what they featured in the 1980s, back when Christy Brinkley and Kathy Ireland dominated. Call me a prude, but I prefer the old-school Swimsuit Issues over the ones we see today. For the past few years, Sports Illustrated has gone the porn route with this. The line between the current Swimsuit Issues and Playboy is very thin, if not non-existent. I want the old Sports Illustrated back. They should let Playboy do the nudity -

    I like this shot a lot – posture, expression, colours – even though beach shots and bikinis aren’t normally my favourite. I definitely don’t think people should be criticizing you for following your own instincts; in fact, I would simply ignore them if I were you. There always are going to be people who think they know better. One comment though: I know it’s because they’re so ubiquitous these days, but something I find is taking away from style photography lately is all of the shots of people looking at their phones! I wish people would just put away their phones for ten seconds! I guess you can’t do much about that if you are trying to catch people spontaneously after fashion events, etc.

    As a street style photographer myself, i have to say, I love this image.
    Certainly there’s all types in this world of ours, so why not document all moments that resonate on a personal level. This one made me happy. It reminds me of the ocean, of surfing, of friends. Finally, she looks fabulous, simply because she takes care of herself.

    I think she looks fabulous, and natural. What do I know? At least her boobs look real, unlike the other bikini shot you took. She has very long limbs and torso, which makes her look super thin too.

    People, people, calm down already. Scott happens to be in a city famous for its beaches and inhabitants thereof. So he takes a photo of a gorgeous girl in a swimsuit since the beach is the main subject matter of the particular locale. If he were in Alaska, he would undoubtedly be taking photos of people in parkas, etc. which is the local mode of dress there. In NY and Paris, it’s street dressing/fashion. What’s the big deal? Plus it’s his blog, he can do want he wants. It’s not like his whole blog is Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue type photos.

    Wow, this pic is so commonplace, I almost skipped over it! And sartorially speaking, there is nothing to see unless you happen to be a fan of the dated pink triangle bikini (yuck). For me this shot doesn’t belong on a style blog, and if it does, then where are the shots of beautiful boys in tiny beachwear? Yes, girls DO want to see beautiful boys!!!
