    I love the entire look! The dress, the bag, the nails, the flats – the colour of the dress…

    What a wonderfully determined stride. Looks almost like a human lambda or a Laban effort, I’d say the ‘press’ (acting students’ll dig that).

    Artificial and very unflattering, in my opinion. I just cannot understand this.

    Wow, she makes that dress look so casual and effortless! Not an easy task…Love the matching nails and casual hairstyle too.

    Love the shape of that dress and it’s the perfect color for her. It’s nice to see that she isn’t tottering about on platform high heels.

    wow! amazing dress! <3 a bit haute couture? :)

    I think my favorite part of this dress is the little blue folded triangles on the back pleats. It reminds me of a piece of origami — structural and precisely folded. And the shade of blue is just right.

    The dress is really interesting. It would be nice to see a front shot of it to truly understand how the pleading is done. The color is very cool though!

    It’s an interesting dress, shows off her delicate body structure. Although… I wouldn’t wear it. Seems, uh, too odd. Although what I mean by that when I’ve looked at the recent photos of other fashion shows, I guess it seems not quite thought out.

    I know people are liking this dress, but to me, it looks like an unfinished piece and rather awkward. Perhaps if I seen the front I would have a different opinion. The color is nice.

  50. Ella

    beautiful dress! the cutouts aren’t too showy, it has a very unique shape, and the color is so pretty.

    there is something stunning about this dress. the color and the pleating are really amazing. but my favorite part might be the shoes… saying goodbye to sandals is so hard to do.

  56. up and coming fashionista

    September 25, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    This is a statement dress. It’s cut out, the amazing pleats, the gorgeous confidence that she radiates. Her sleek, chic, hair gathered into a imperfect bun – it’s amazing. Great photo.

  57. Curtain fashion

    September 25, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    I am going against the grain here: she is literally a walking curtain.

    This is definitely “out of the box” but it doesn’t work for me.

    I love the way she has bunned her hair in that casual way though. Classy lady, save for the above.

  58. TrueBlue

    September 25, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    The construction of the dress is kinda weird, but I like it. Also the color goes really well with her pale skin. Overall what a fabulous look :)

    i dont like it, beautiful dress and beautiful color and beautiful girl but it drowns her. she is too petite for it

    Does anyone know who makes this dress? Completely agree with the above comments – the cut is brilliant.

    Err.. I think she looks like she went for a fitting to the tailors and left without removing the dress!!

  78. vhound

    September 26, 2011 at 7:15 am

    This one looks like she pulled old, pleated curtains from the 60s down and redid them as a dress. I understand the urge, since those upholstry fabrics are often to die for. The way the top is cut, though, makes the whole thing work. Miraculous, really.

    Interesting dress, beautiful color, and she makes it look so easy and summery. I do love the flat sandals and casual bun. I think this is a great summer-in-the-city look.

    Love that blue. My art studio is near Lincoln Center, so now I am beside myself wondering if I might spot the Sartorialist nearby and see what the Sartorialist is wearing! I will have to be on the lookout for photographers photographing sartorialist things!

    September 26, 2011 at 11:45 am

    The top attached to the skirt isn’t new – that’s been around for ever. But I love the buttons containing the bulk of the skirt instead of it being gathered into a waistband. And the material is nice.

    Funny, I wore a similar dress in black on a date this weekend. It had little cut-outs at the side offering my date an opportunity he couldn’t pass up…

    It’s just an open invitation to tickle, this dress… wonder if she had a welcome tickle too????

    few people would have the body shape (skinny, no curves) and the attitude to be able to wear a dress with hard wide pleats at the hips but this women does it with ease. She truly wear and embodies the dress rather than the other way around. it would horrible on most women but it looks amazing on her.

  103. julie

    September 26, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    the lines of her outfit are really interesting. it’s simple but strong. her hair looks perfectly balanced with all the other lines in her dress, bag, sandals and is she holding an envelope?

    I love the dress on her. The colors: her hair, the dress, her nails.
    A shoe maker can make a quick stitch so the backs of her sandals stay up. And it won’t change the comfort level.

    September 27, 2011 at 9:15 am

    A style triumph!! Everything about this look works for me. From the architecture of the dress to her choice of accessories and the footwear is so unexpected and darling + she has a great stride. New Yorkers are waaaaay stylish :-)

    September 27, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    This is the sort of dress that might cause me to have a spectacular meltdown before I even had the chance of walking out the door. What shoes? Jewelry? Hair? To cardigan or not to cardigan? And yet, I’m quite certain this young lady plucked it out of her closet and tossed it on over her undies, whipped her hair into a knot, threw her bag over her shoulder and sauntered out the door. It’s such an extravagant dress, but she’s wearing it so simply, to a delightful result.

    One has to be skinny as a stick, with no visible curves to wear that dress. As she is! Looks great on her but probably many clothes do not.

    Who wants to make their hips look wider?? I have to say, I hate this dress. I love the hair and the simple shoes, but the dress is so bulky at the worst area. To me, it is not flattering.

    I love her stride – love the shoes, the origami dress, the hairdo, her nose, black nails, the whole look is wearable and original, yet not weird.

    Isn’t it great when you haven’t visited this awesome blog in a few days, and there’s a whole bunch of great looks just waiting for you? Thx, Mr. Sartorialist.

    Does anyone know who’s the dress designer?

    It’s a great dress, the structural quality really adds something unique and amazing. And surprisingly despite those very structured elements, it feels like it moves. Can’t beat that.

    I think the idea of the dress is lovely but the pleats aren’t pulled together correctly in my opinion. They’re too heavy and deliberate. Like a few people said before she is a bit of a “walking curtain”. Maybe if it was a different fabric? The cut outs in the waistline are beautiful and if nothing else she definitely carries herself well. I almost think she could be wearing a trashbag and still seem like she’s draped in couture.

    Adore, adore, adore. The definition of “statement” and worn on the street apparently quite comfortably. Not a flattering shape but one that shocks the eye, and that is what moving fashion forward is all about.

    I never would have thought to wear a dress like that so casually! It looks fantastic! The royal blue with the blonde hair is perfect.
