    Oh, this picture is pure love! Such exquisiteness!

    Only question – did she take the jacket off for the picture? She seems to be a bit cold. Not only because of palette of clothes and pale skin.

    Also have to love the lip color.
    (The ribbon on the suitcase is too much for me for an already perfect look!)

    I believe this is my favorite picture you have posted on your blog. I love everything about it: the textures, the draping of her dress, the edginess of her boots contrasted with the gossamer nature of her dress. I love her use of a small old suitcase (?) as her "purse." Most of all, the pop of color. Bravo!

    Little Blue
    Bright of the world and almost butterspread,
    What a vision, I hope you’re not a vision,
    Could you be what I feared so long to lose?

    You little blue, you fresh breath of streets,
    Cling to you do airs of pity and pitiless leaving;
    Mon cheri, I’ll try to speak some other way.

    Do you carry some poor prisoner in your suitcase?
    I’d bundle myself for the long haul to be packed
    Convenient and carried to any way station by you.

    If problems could be solved and such by love,
    And by some chance or if perhaps you wandered under
    My window, then perhaps by you a wind raised might change.

    Littlest blue, girl sweetness brushed in light,
    Us rid of our jokes and palest promises to self,
    You little blue, you scattering of cloud, besides.

    One of the the most exquisite images I've ever seen on this site. Gorgeous and immaculate. And the arabesque of that wind-tossed hem is just sublime. It's like silk calligraphy.

    What a beautiful photo! Colors are exquisite. Girl is ethereal. Photo could be turned into impressionistic portrait. Straight out of the Belle Epoque period. She must be a Russian ballerina dancing for The Royal Opera. She looks physically strong, yet very thin. The contents of her tiny case must be her exercise clothes. This photo deserves to be hung in an Art Museum (anywhere in the world). Everthing is picture perfect.

  301. julian

    October 22, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Stunning, stunning, stunning !!!

    Without a doubt my single favourite photograph.

    The dress is gorgeous beyond words; the boots, the case, the ribbons are perfect, matchless complements; the smooth, powdery perfection of exposed skin, of her bare shoulder, neck and chest, begs to be lightly kissed; and the contrast of colours, textures and surfaces throughout is startling.

    The richness and depth of hue is utterly sublime, the matching of ribbons and coat is witty and inspired……….

    and to top it off, that bold stare, those eyes, those crimson coated lips and that daring, forward expression that cant be described as anything but boldly sexual, make this a longing, desirous, achingly beautiful vision of sensual loveliness.

    This, for me, is a photographic rival of the oil paint Dutch Masters.

    Its a masterpiece I’d say and I’d truly love to see an original print.

    An invigorating visual feast, masterful work, much kudos and thanks to the photographer…..and of course to the model who is completely divine.

    One of the most viscerally striking and beautiful images I’ve seen in quite some time.

    I really like this dress. It isn’t over the top and it is attractive. I need to get a dress like this for my wife.

    The Color of the ribbons in her hair matches the Color of her coat and the Color of the ribbon on her Little leather suit case Matches the Color of her lipstick. All that with that great petrol-blue Color of her Dress.
