    I am not sure about tattoos of phrases along arms – especially forearms and undersides of the upper arm – Makes me shudder a bit looking like branding from another nightmarish time.

    That said the dress and bag are strikingly geometrical and standout in the shot just like the linear and vertical reality of the urban environment. Intentional or not Scott it is a beautiful juxtaposition!

    OK, I give up, what’s the tat on her bicep?

    Nice looking young woman…….but I’d rather see photos of the Occupy Wall Street protesters. That’s what’s really going on these days.

    VIII XXIX = 8 29…. I wonder what it stands for. Loving the minimalist look. From her short hair to her flats, it’s a look that’s anything but plain.

    LOvely unconstructed dress. So feminine. The pose is gorgeous. It reminds me of something, but I can’t think of what. I mean I realize she is hailing a cab, but it puts me in mind of something else.

    Thank goodness she didn’t belt it or wear any jewelry or anything stupid like that. She wears it just how she should. Not even a watch on her! Perfection!

    Columnistic without the curves — not that interesting, and the tattoo just looks like unnatural hair growth.

    I like how the shape of her bag mirrors the shape of her dress, plus the color scheme is nice.

    The dress has such an unconventional and lovely silhouette. Graceful and simplistic capture.

    Her tattoo is reminiscent of the ones the Nazi’s put on people’s arms. It’s horrible. Especially on such a beautiful person.
    Perhaps she’s never met a survivor of the Nazi concentration camps?

    Graceful and elegant photo. “8 and 29″… Maybe she’s trying to get to 8th Ave and West 29th Street!

    The word is volume. Not for me. She’s got beautiful hair and posture but I would offset the long big dress with a teeny tiny bag. Now, in case I needed the large bag for practical purposes I would use something flat-er.

    Nice light.

    beautiful bag. I am not sure about the dress, too long and too straight.

  61. Wendy Sacks

    October 4, 2011 at 6:00 am

    This shapeless dress makes even a tall beautiful woman with a great figure look terrible. I can’t imagine an average woman in this thing.

    October 4, 2011 at 6:38 am

    I’m personally not a super-fan of such a super-minimalism… but at least it’s a coherent look with a sense: what I really can’t stand is the clutter of casual elements…

    Nice, really nice!

    her frock and her bag, oversized, allowing her body to stay camouflaged and protected. the drape gracefully across and around her, statuesque.

    I really like the dress/purse/shoes color match.
    The vertical stretch leads the eyes to the building heights.
    Personaly I would like to see more depth of field focus.
    The tattoo is repulsive.

  72. Cassandra

    October 4, 2011 at 9:53 am

    What a lovely shape, though I think the dress and the bag combo is a little overpowering. She could use some height with the structured look.

    all around excellent!

    Ah, what can I say? Fab, fab, fab!
    Her sunnies go so well with the grey of her dress.

  77. Darrell

    October 4, 2011 at 11:13 am

    8-29 (In Roman Numerals) must mean something special to her.
    An August 29th date of birth would be my guess.
    Happy Belated Birthday, Mystery Girl!
    And Best Wishes Always.

    And if you’re going to get a tattoo, I’d rather see it someplace like there.

    Adore the juxtaposition of the ladylike pump, architectural dress and bag and then the unexpected twist the tattoo – which in this case i like, like a lot x

    I love the polarized comments here …. and the inevitable comments on the tattoo, which is subtle to me, and irrelevant.

    I love the combo here – the hair, dress, flats. I’d be tempted to style this with a bold belt, but it works without, too. There is nothing “dumb” or “victim” about this look as commented above.

  83. Niia

    October 4, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    She’s lovely, but I find this dress a bit unflattering in its looseness and length. The pieces all work well together, but I think the whole look might have been far better with some inches off the length.


    October 4, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    The simplicity of this outfit really makes it work, she looks great!

    She was modeling
    at Pier 59 Studios…
    just a guess.
    I’m still wondering;
    about that dress.

    Absolutely love it ! The photo is amazing and she looks so gorgeous !

  92. rebecca

    October 4, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    This is all wrong. Her frame is too small for such a large long dress. Her feet and legs look miniscule, smallishly deformed. I love big bags on a frame that can support them, she obviously cannot. I am a woman over six feet, and I would reconsider this outfit if I were to put it on.

    Its a date. August 29th. Its possibly a birthday, or a day she met someone, or a date for some other reason important to her. The tat I mean. But I just can’t get over her grace of movement.

  95. Catherine

    October 4, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    She is lovely, as is her movement. However, I feel if she wasn’t stretched and twisted the way she is the dress would hang like a shapeless sack. The fabric looks very heavy/thick as well, adding to the sack. Perhaps a gorgeous moment in a functional dress.

  96. Catherine

    October 4, 2011 at 10:07 pm

    I like the tattoo. It is understated, in an easily covered position, and it has meaning to her. To say it is a holocaust tattoo is misguided, unkind, and wrong. You don’t have to like tattoo’s but be respectful.

    The tattoos in the holocaust were on the forearm, were not roman numerals, and looked like the type of tattoo done with a pen and a safety pin, as prison tattoos are done now. My great grandfather had one and I promise you, it was nothing like this.

    tattoos, or smoking for that matter are a personal choice and ought not to be the subject of attack in a format such as this… although we all should have the choice to not be exposed to other peoples’ smoke. having said that, I admire her look, dramatic without being fussy. love the flats!

    Not many women have the confidence to NOT accentuate their waist. Its like we are programed to think that the hourglass is the only way. But once you get over that mental hurdle, you start seeing the possibilities. Seeing this dress looking so perfect on a short girl like that helps me to have more confidence with the straighter lines. I wonder if others out there have to fight themselves to NOT belt things.
