    I just love the hat with the long flowy gown. so contradictory yet compliments each other so well!

    oh what a pretty dress. i can imagine how delicately it must move when she walks. makes me wish we weren’t heading into winter where i live.

    Big caption!
    The “joie de vivre” is in the air!
    The dress is very YSL vintage and the other girl reminds the famous YSL tuxedo. The hats another YSL icon.
    Great fashion photo make great fashionable girls and “mutatis mutandis”.

    Indeed, they are shiny, happy models that wear hats.

    Yep, free you mind, and free you body! Embrace these floating dresses and forget skinny clothing, at least until October. This comment also applies to today’s second post… If anything he wears would be just half a size larger, the whole look would recieve an enormous amount of sophistication that is unfortunately missing here. The proportions don’t work too well, I think. Yellow and grey rules, though, alright.

    my hat’s off to them! i think every guy and girl should wear a hat. besides the fact it looks old school stylish, it also helps u out when ure having a bad hair day…

    love the hat + maxi combination !
    i like how the hat band has a certain
    blue tint, picking up on small
    accents on irina’s dress.

  18. SaraSnider

    May 15, 2008 at 10:08 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress on the right! She looks so stunning, great smile, easy, breezy and the hat makes th outfit.
    Who makes the dress???

    They both have such astonishing faces. I wouldn’t call either one traditionally beautiful, and yet one wants to keep looking at them. The clothes are really secondary to the women in this shot, and that’s fine by me.

  20. Carolina Lange

    May 15, 2008 at 10:19 am

    They look great!
    I love the outfit of the blond model, so casual and so chic at the same time! The kind of look that I love!

    i’m not sure how i feel about those dresses. i see a lot of celebrities wearing them now: Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Paris Hilton, etc.
    I think only pregnant woman show wear them haha.

    May 15, 2008 at 10:40 am

    the woman on the right is Irina???

    the combination of the hat and the dress is awesome. It amazes us!

    Cute short-brimmed hats. How smart to pair the light hat with the dark jacket and the dark hat with the pastel maxi.

    This looks very British, to me!

    irina is so lovely. i love the contrast of the masculine hat with the uber-femme maxi dress. great shot.

    Thank you, Pete Doherty, for singlehandedly re-popularizing these hats! One could say many negative things about him, but the guy has some punch to his style.

    Nice contrast with the hippie dress and the sleek black/grey. They are both adorable.

    Goodness I adore Irina and her dress even more so!

    What a great shot. I sense that you approached them and made them feel good, thus the laugh from the one in blue.

    I love that dress. The hat doesn’t do anything for it. The dress works well for her skin tone and hair color.

    Oh, that’s cute. Is she still wearing her blanket from the airplane? Only a model could pull that off!

    my daughter used to wear her blanket around her neck too, she was three years old, she called it her binky. When I see this photo I think binky.

    Can someone tell me what the temperature was when this shot was taken? Both looks are great, but they make no sense together. Either the one in the dress is very cold or the one in the scarf is smoldering. Love the hats, though.

  57. miss cavendish

    May 15, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    I love hats, but I do not like these. The white hat is too small and the blue hat too large, proportionally. These pretty young women look like they’re trying too hard–or not trying at all. Alas.

    THIS is why I love you and this website.

    Such a cute reaction to NYC Springtime… The girl from Argentina is chilly and bundled up while the Rumanian girl feels as if it’s mid-summer.

    You know I love you, Sart. But it seems like there have been an awful lot of model photos lately. I have to admit I like the pictures of regular people the best. There’s more variety in the clothing.

    I`m pretty sure the blonde one is the lovely Argentinian model Milagros Schmoll. She looks amazing, as usual! Here in Buenos Aires she is a style icon!
    Scott, u should come to take pictures to Sau Paulo and Buenos Aires.

    If i’m not mistaken, the blonde model is an Argentine girl, who’s just 16 years old,
    and she’s just GORGEOUS,
    you should research the photos from when she was 14, when she started, she was so different!

    the dress is really stunning. I do love it. Mango you say? hmm… methinks i must make a trip there! but i’m not feeling the hat with it though. Although i second the comment about the blue band colour setting off the tones in the dress. that in itself is a wonderful pairing. If it was a headscarf instead i would probably like it more though.
    great shot, Sart!

    And I think Irina is kind of boring but sexy. If you come to Buenos Aires you can find girls wearing those kind of dresses everywhere.

    Gorgeous! truley casual chic! but that maxi gets me wild. The dress ( I feel ) was invented purely to make us, may I say shorter, women feel less well tall LOL
