    This is the same girl as before, right? I must say that this is a style that I am not into at all, but I don't say she isn't stunning and beautiful, cos she really is. I just don't like that much mixed colors, and I never got why wear a leather bag with floral prints and sandals.. I know it might be my "issue" but I like leather bags in winter time and with beachy clothes I would wear a canvas bag or no bag at all.. :)

    Thanks! Love your blog!

    But the conbination with her blue barkin is tooheavy, specially under the strong sunlight like this.
    Her white tank and wedges are the best about her.

    I like this photo a lot more. It shows a flesh and blood young lady who likes to play with style.

    You got any pictures of any proper winter-wear (snow-cold, minus celsius)? Awesome pictures anyhow.

    It would be cool if you could add some info to the pictures about the origin of some of the clothing, the materials etc, to the extent which you discuss it with your subjects, it would give some more food for-thought.

    Have a nice day

    Compare and contrast the barbershop below with the turquoise Hermes bag here! They are the same color–but worlds apart! That, of course, raises the moral dilemma–is it okay to display ostentatious wealth in a country like Brazil? Is it ever ok, anyway-whether you're a bored Olsen shopping in Beverly Hills or a nouveau riche socialite being busy doing charity work?

    The only time a Birkin works for me is when it is carried by its namesake! And she was the inspiration because she used to carry around a wicker basket!

  62. E Knight

    January 13, 2010 at 10:12 am

    have to say I'm not in love with this one. She is stunning, with an inner glow, but the combination is unfortunate; especially the hat and scarf combo. The hat is too big and the scarf, bulky. I love your blog though!

    January 13, 2010 at 10:35 am

    You know, you often see the Hermes bag in jean color as a contrasting item in an outfit, but she integrates it so well by wearing the same color on her clothes. It is refreshing that she matches it with a v casual shirt and scarf (?) as if to say, "I carry this bag all the time" which they should for all the money they cost. Jorge from WPB

    I love Joana Nolasco… She is simple one of the most fabulous girl in Rio.
    But I am not here to talk about Joana style!
    I am curious about how much of the whole world the reader who said Joana it's crazy to wear a Hermés bag in Brasil!
    I would say something to you: Here we have hungry, theath, murders… Like any other coutry and the world. But the idea of being stolen, it's not about the bag. Afterall, this poor souls that have no money to feed theamselfs do not have any idea of how much it cost this bag!
    I've been robbed in London.. And my mom was kidnaped leaving a bank in Manhattan and left in Harlem without a penny in the pocket to get a subway. In Rio though, we never, EVER, got stolen!
    It's just bad luck! And can happen all around the world!

    Simply love the Prada resort scarf skirt especially with summery wedges and simple white tank. However you don't need a scarf on the head when you are wearing it translated into a skirt..the hat alone would've been much sexier with tousled beach hair. I love Hermes as much as anyone but a canvas/leather version would've been amazing and not so predictable esp with the straw hat…….

    Lovely skirt, love the colours!
    But: two pictures, two Hermes, twice a carré used as a headscarf. Too much (or too obvious) , maybe?
    Plus, how can you wear both a headscarf and a hat when it's 38C?

    want to tell Lucia who commented up there.
    i do not see the colors are mixed too much.
    and also, if she brought canvas bag with her dress, it might be just normal.
    the fact that she brought something that cannot easily be chosen makes her special.

    so close! perhaps perfection if the pieces were in different proportion…flat sandals, fuller or longer skirt, smaller hat- perched similarly with a less structured bag.

    but to combine all those together seems like she was trying too hard.

    i like this website cos it captured and proved that girls dont need to tote a birkin bag everytime everywhere to show that she have style cos not everybody in this world is blessed to have even one birkin bag.

    and looking at her pics with diff color of birkin just turn me off.

    I agree with a few others… If you you are wearing a represented scarf as a skirt, no need for an additional one on your head. However, i think the colors are brilliant! Miuccia captured the ideal tropical vacay! I do think that the silhouette could enhance the body a little better, however, not everyone can look like Agyness Deyn

    My husband often tells me when we look at this site not to overanalyze the details; look at the overall image and decide if it speaks to you. I have to agree with him on this one. Some things get lost in the details here but the combination of blue/ orange/ white is so fresh, so south american summer that they should put her in tourism ads for Brazil.

    come on schott!how could you like her style?!
    she is totaly not natural, but this could be not so bad…she decided to waer her wrap-around in a way that is not cool at all!what about the bag?! my mother (that you really could love because of her style) teached me that you should never wear a leather bag when you're wearing something really lightweight (expecially if it is not night-time).
    in the end, I do think that it's too much: never wear a hat and a foulard on the same head.

    but I love her sandals in her first picture!

  217. Lin

    January 15, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    She looks amazing, but for my own personal taste it's a little too busy (I tend to stick with one accessory, like a great pair of earrings, or scarf, as opposed to a scarf + hat + jewelry + bag). With so much going on I love the simple white shirt and shoes though and that her make-up is natural, perfect combination and choice on her part. I do wish I could pull off a look like this though!

    Honestly, so what if she has another Birkin bag, so what if it is leather, and so what if she is wearing a hat with a head scarf. SHE loves to wear them and SHE looks great. Who are we to criticize what SHE should wear.

    I agree that she looks great – the outfit, the scenario, the summer feel
 But the photo seems ‘staged’ to me, as a fashion magazine spread. Brazilian women usually do not go around in DVF dresses toting Hermes bags. Joanna (Nolasco) is beautiful and stylish, but a professional of the fashion industry, and by no means representative of the Brazilian woman. Brazilian women are beautiful, but have in general a simpler style, no flashy expensive brands.
    In Garance’s words (she was there too): “The girls are amazing. It’s totally true. They are sublime. They dress with simplicity and taste. The coolest of them all wear flats. I didn’t come across too many fashion addicts.”

    I like this look a lot, but it does suggest "trying too hard". Skipping the head gear would be good. Or, one or the other – not both scarf and hat. Agree the bag's a bit heavy. Very contrived, though it's clear she's a Sartorialist.

    Extremely biased and distasteful comment of Alexiaki. Yes, in Brazil there are also winter and used boots and coats, it is a country of continental proportions and not all places do as much heat as in Rio There Hermes stores in Brazil and sells very well! There are many Birkins, kelis, chanel, and many others out there. You think that in Brazil we're all naked? Better to study and learn a little more. It would just be ignorance of aspects of other countries on your part? Would envy?
