    I love pictures that you take of daily life events, they’re always the best, in my opinion. These two look like they’re gonna rock the night away in some dirty NY basement. Can I get an invite?

    Been hunting for some casual-chic baggy army cargo trousers for ages now… seems like this guy got there before me!

      you might find some at an army surplus store if there’s one easy for you to get to

    Again a nice step away from your classically beautiful shots. This is NY on a hot day. She is lovely in those flower patterned pants too.

    This is so uncharacteristically sexy. The image creates (or captures) this instant attraction between the two strangers, even if it’s fleeting.

      Completely agree! I was thinking how he was acting too cool, and so is she, yet you can feel the hotness coming off of them.

    Playful pants – works well on both. Sporty casual. True summer.

    I don’t mean to kill the magic in the picture but oh, well… she really could’ve worn a bra, no?

    • LIZPR

      August 30, 2012 at 11:23 am

      Exactly what I was thinking, Lou.

      Otherwise, love their outfits.

      Nooo! What does she need a bra for? Free boobs emphasize that she feels good in her beautiful body.

    Floral prints and camo are heavy in the streetz right now… and also no bras.

    Is she thinking, “Am I making a mistake with this one?” She seems so together, confident, and has got style. Is she thinking, “Man, what’s with those camouflage low-riders and those tired white Cons?”

    Maybe the new stereo will help.

      You should write captions for the new yorker, your wit an sense of humor is so keen and accurate. You really pin pointed those peoples thoughts and dialog with your brilliant sense of insight. Quick wit, sophisticated sense of humor and a closet full of True religion…you must be the envy of your suburb.

  30. debbie

    Dude needs to pull up his pants and she needs a bra. Other than that, the clothing itself is good.

    • beulabelle

      August 30, 2012 at 1:18 pm

      his pants do seem rather low. she could use some support but then again maybe she’s after the attention (and discount on the electronics) might bring her…..I was mostly thinking that they look like a NYC couple waiting for a cab to carry home those giant boxes.

    This picture really tells a story. I can see her running to Starbucks to quell the boredom of shopping for air conditioners (I think that’s what those are).

    Or maybe he offered to help to impress her. Either way, awesome picture! Her outfit would have been complete with a statement necklace like this ombre one :

    She is yin to his yang. I agree. She is well put together, and he looks like a mess. Maybe he’s a rocker (hence the speakers) and she’s attracted to that?

    I’ve been in NY for about ten years. I remember when I first got here thinking camouflage pants were cool – now they look as dated as a Von Dutch baseball hat. Also: sucks to be their neighbors – two 1200 watt subwoofers? Yikes.

    I LOVE the picture but I also LOVE HER BOOBS! I love no bra! Maybe it is only me, but I think good boobs look SO cool and sexy when they are not shaped by a bra! And I am a woman, and a hetero! Maybe it is because I am from Amsterdam? A different culture? Anyway: love the photo again very much:)

    • Brizz

      August 30, 2012 at 4:30 pm

      I absolutly second that (as I commented before). I don’t make a dogma of going braless, but I find absolutely natural to go without. What really annoys me are those padded monsters that not only make every kind of boobs look the same and strangely unphysical but also keep the waerers boobs from having any sensations like temperature or wind or touch. They make the boobs numb.

    • Emma

      September 3, 2012 at 4:46 pm

      It’s quite funny because I’m from Amsterdam too and I think that the fact that she isn’t wearing a bra is actually the best thing about this photo. It makes her look so laidback and I think it gives her a lot of character.

  65. tammy

    August 30, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    interesting how americans are so shocked that she is braless. ive seem plenty of women and men that are more covered up yet more distractingly vulgar. also, how do so many know the names of these models that are pictured on this site

    • Cohiba

      August 31, 2012 at 6:54 am

      Not only Americans may be shocked. Unless a woman has tiny breasts, beeing braless would focus the attention on the boobs and be perceived as very provocative in France too.
      Women in Paris are regularely harrassed on the street by men who make sexual advances on the ground that they wear a skirt or show their legs. I cannot imagine what they would hear if they would walk braless with ther jiggling boobs !

      • Poppy Keane

        September 3, 2012 at 9:16 pm

        I think it is a very cool summery look. She’s beautiful and seems so relaxed and comfortable. So it’s all peachy to some of us.
        But I have to agree with Cohiba. Going braless is not so much about you, it is really dictated by your environment and the level of comfort OTHERS have with your bralessness. Wearing no bra in the East Village is one thing, doing it in Bed-Stuy is a horse of a different color. I wouldn’t recommend it! Amsterdam is a wealthy, liberal fairly safe city. As far as I could see, Paris felt a bit more dangerous in parts. With a growing Muslim presence, I would imagine braless would be a hard one to pull off and walk the street in peace. That tall drink wouldn’t be nearly as sweet if you had 5 guys behind yelling at you. In parts of the city like the “Do or Die” Bed Stuy, street harassment is a very real issue.

      • Martine

        September 5, 2012 at 2:30 am

        Isn’t “shocked” a bit of an overstatement? I think she looks lovely the way she is. But I don’t think anyone is shocked, are they?
        And in most cities in the US no one is actually going to harass you unless they were in that frame of mind to begin with. Its really not tolerated here.
        Interesting to note that in Europe that kind of behavior is allowed. I guess here are advantages to living in places where people own firearms.

  66. Ray

    August 30, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    Aha, I see like the underlying truth of all this is: If you’re good-looking, you can wear anything and it looks good. The uglier your clothes, the more it shows off how good-looking you are. That’s the secret, folks! Now you know.
