    What a great red shade for autumnal outfits and the shirt dress is an absolutely great piece and the way she combines it with the greyish tights is fashion advanced. love, FashionLifeCoach

    Both of these women have such poise. I love both of their outfits but especially the woman in red – she looks utterly original. Who matches their makeup to their red dress? On paper it wouldn't seem to work, but she has the elegance to carry it off. Beautiful.

    Lovely picture. I love the way her coat and shoes pick up the red of the London bus. Was that strategically placed Scott?

    To Lauren who asked "Who matches their makeup to their red dress?"… well, it's not a new concept, I've been doing it all my life.

    I don't think the red is a dress. it looks more like pants looking at the hemline, Which would be even more amazing.

  28. rere

    October 7, 2010 at 10:23 am

    I think the red is a pants jumpsuit not a dress, but still amazing.

    Love these young women and their unique style. Everything but the bags. Macrame?!? And the black or grey whatever-it-is. But I love the clothes, colors, and shoes although most of all the women themselves.

    I'm trying to figure out where on the strand this is as i can't picture any trees on the strand. The only place would be towards Aldwych but then the church isn't in the background.


    October 7, 2010 at 10:59 am

    love the simplicity of it all played up by their still understated accessories.

    these girls need some jewelry from Rossmore!

    Love the suede shoes.

    Yesss, to the woman in red. So theatrical but not silly and somewhat modern. I love when women embrace nostalgia in the current interpretation. I can't. I just follow Celine like a herd animal:)

    Today I'm settling for this shot.

    I'm having a day when I can't seem to get inspired by anything. I like the calm, reassuring, uncomplicated looks of these ladies. I'm in the mood for it.

    What an immense contrast with the M. Jacobs shots.

    It's not that I don't like that new collection, but when I think of all the stress that went into it: 'it's got to be this, it's got to be that and most of all, it's got to be done in time!' I just get tired thinking about it. It's a tour de force and the comment 'Marc does it again' is appropriate.

    But, like I said, I'm just not in the mood for it.

    I'll settle for these English dames, a pipe, a fire and a detective story right now.

    Great red outfit indeed but I find the red/orange eye make-up a little too much. And orange eyeshadow always make you look like you were just crying your eyes out.

    Love the knitted tights with the chunky shoes, and the color combination is gorgeous!
    I'm trying to decide how I feel about the macrame bag…Part of me feels like the contrast makes it interesting, and part of me feels like it just doesn't click. I wonder if a leather satchel-type bag, or traditional purse would sit better with the rest of the look.
    Overall – both women look stunning and totally original.
