    Ow how beautiful. NY City must be so rich in different cultures and ethnicities. Good job.

    I’m not sure what I’m supposed to love fashion-wise about this picture. That’s a sack of a dress doing nothing for her. The shoes are nothing to speak of. Is is the print? She is pretty, but I don’t get what’s interesting or attractive about the clothes.

    Beautiful dress! Love the color.

    I think the point of this is the photo. The mom’s smooth, straight hair juxtaposed with the child’s big hair is a great contrast. (I love big hair)

    I think the dress’s pattern and sheen is cool. Not a flattering fit, but that’s often the case with a lot of these photos.

    I can’t decide who is more unique looking. A really interesting image.

    Oh what a gorgeous shot. I’d like to see more of it, a tiny bit, on the right and less on the left, but it’s still positively gorgeous because of its textures, colours and facial expressions!

    i saw these two (and daddy, too) on hudson street yesterday, and she had on a really pretty off-white and red polka dot dress. A stunning, stylish family!

    I’m with Jen on this one. But the kid’s hair is amazing. I love it. A belt could do wonders for the woman’s dress.

    The caregiver’s dress has such a lovely sheeny-shiny thing going for it.

    Love the kid’s hair!

    I can’t decide what’s sweeter: the lady’s pretty-printed dress or the HUGE hair of the child in the pushchair.

    This is one of Dries Van Noten’s genius dresses from his Spring line. She looks perfect in it! :)

    Isn’t this the serenely beautiful woman you photographed at the Dries show?

    Beautiful fabric! Lovely woman and child.

    Oh, they make me nostalgic for the “old” SoHo.

    here’s a thought – flattering is subjective. the color is gorgeous on her, the hair is so beautifully down yet back (people always get haircuts these days, never bothering with hairstyles!), and that dress, the length, the material, it flatters her very much. does everything have to be cinched and pinched and cut low to flatter? for all we know, she has a wide wide waist, in which case isn’t this the smartest sartorial choice she could make anyway? i think she looks wonderful.

    I think the best thing in this photo is the child’s hair. That’s one stylin’ babe!

    Jen…it’s not ALWAYS about fashion on this blog. It’s not ALWAYS about cloths. Mr Sartorialist also likes to shoot interesting people.

    Both are lovely and so natural. I love it!

    there’s something natural and so easy about this shot that for me it makes it such a great nyc shot.

    so i guess i would disagree with jen. but i can see why people outside of the city may not like this…

    There are so many wonderful things about this shot. But what is especially appealing is not only the diversity of the subjects, but also the opposite hair textures. The smooth and sleek on her and the big and curly on the kid.

    the first thing that jumped out at me was the mama vs. baby hair, loooove it! Then the color of the baby blanket just POPS against the navy of the stroller. I also love the little splash of red off of the top of the cup. Is that a McDoo’s iced coffee? LOL!

    This is truly a great shot!
    I love the dress of the Mom, but also the expression in their faces.
    This is so ‘real life’

    This picture is great. I would present this as a representation of multiculturalism in America, the subtitle would be ‘Where do we come from?’.

    Besides that I love her artsy look. And as others have said, thank you for not putting out the same old trendy big sunglass wearing fashionistas. Trend is tiresome.

    Jenny :o)

    I don’t know why one would call this lovely woman with fashion flair the “caregiver.” Be careful.

    aww I love this shot. Contrasting cultures, patterns and textures… similar expression shared by mom and child.
    Sart. this put a smile on my face. Continue to shoot the interesting and unique. I agree it doesn’t always need to be about the clothes.

    This is your first, I believe, photo of a woman with child in tow. I applaud, I applaud. For, i am a woman with three children in tow and isn’t that the greatest fashion feat of all?–to be such a woman “en vogue”? I make a motion that a series of such women should be done.

    I actually passed this woman while she was wearing this dress! I had thought about how fabulous she looked with her kid in tow that Sunday afternoon.
    How exciting to see something on here that you had seen in real life and thought was wonderful.

    I agree with editor. I think she looks gorgeous and I really like the fit of the dress.

    Er, there is nothing wrong with calling someone a caregiver. It is in fact wonderfully evocative and polite. We don’t know if this woman is a mother or a nanny or an aunt or what. Caregiver is the correct term to use and it certainly isn’t a non-positive thing to say.

    My favorite Sartorialist picture so far. What is so appealing is a beauty that is almost incidental. Not a contrast in hair texture or ethnicities, the world is a big place with alot of different people in it.

    That kid’s hair rocks! I’d kill for that fro!

    She is very beautiful. Simple look and so alive face.. I admire your ability to feel and see the people on the street.

    Im with Jen too !

    The dress is awful in my opinion, it hangs just like a sack and is completely unflattering.

    I do like her hair and she is pretty but it is another example on these pages of someone who with a few sartorial adjustments could look really damn good
