    elegant red with untamed mane = boldly classy

    I love it, though I wish I could see her face.

    I don’t know why so many people with hair like this always straighten their hair. I have the “ideal” straight hair but I’m quite frankly envious of the big volume here and movement of her hair. Oh well…I guess it’s one of those “grass is greener” situations.

    I always feel that it is by a wave of good fortune that catches a picture in the right moment. This looks to me like one of those days.
    I can’t decide whether it’s the red color against her skin, or the red dress on her body that’s making me say “wow!” Either ways, it’s both!
    I have to say that there’s something very feminine and masculine at the same time, her arms look very manly-strong (impact added by the wrist watch – looks great, I think), while the shoes look very daintily feminine, a perfect balance of the elements.

    This is so stunning and bold and perfect.

    Does anyone else feel like this could be just a basic American Apparel dress? But it works…oh boy does it work.

    I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on how this can be so red and so tight yet not tacky or trashy or inappropriate–its perfectly classy.

    What are the elements of the looks that make it work?

    I actually think that the hair covering her face adds a lot to the photo because more focus is drawn to the dress and her amazing body. The tight, bright dress works so well on her because she has accessorized so well and her body is so ideally woman. She looks iconic.

    The red contrast against the yellow cab in such a dreary urban area are fabulous. She is extremely hot in this red number with a body to go with it, though I always found that style should be effortless and feel comfortable at the same time. This figure looks as if she is “struggling” with comfort on numerous levels.

    Love seeing girls with the same crazy hair like mine. Its’ so funny how people always talk about how “cool” or “hip” it is. The fact is, yeah, all that but without the help of some stylist who can blow dry the hell out of it (and that takes hours, and I’ve had stylists give up in the middle of blow drying it) it’s hard to look polished. And the hair is such an attention getter that often a hat or a ponytail (or pony puff in my case) is the only way to stay under the radar on those days when I’m not looking for chats with strangers. I’m lucky in that my hair suits my lifestyle but there are those moments when I’d like to look something other than “cool” or “hip”. A rich man’s dilemma, I know.

    Girls with this hair I’d love to hear what you do for something different.

    Anyway….. The dress is kind of 80′s to me and not one I love but I must say if you’re gonna wear it, wear the hell out if it like this lady. Great body. Not skinny, shapely.

    That dress can only be warn by girls with her figure… build… in other words- I could never wear this dress. She looks AMAZING in it!!

    And lastly, my hair would never do that… too straight. Too flat.

    first the woman whose dress gets blown by the bus & now this one! incredible! I want to see the face that goes with the body (did you get any other shots of her?) but at the same time I like the mystery of not being able to see her. love how spontaneous it is. the cel phone is a nice touch also – the modern woman in the age of technology – strong, feminine, sexy & on the go! works not only as a fashion image but a great picture in itself – well done!

    Dayum. I wish I looked like that.

    I’d wear a dress like that too if I had her body.

    But the stiletto helps to make it less trampy tight and more cling chic.

THIS is how you wear AA jersey boys and girls, you make sure you’ve got the goods first. Sad but true, not everyone can spray on their clothes and look fine at it.

    I remember when I used to be able to wear dresses like that…20 years ago. *sniff* Even if I do get down to goal weight, that body is gone forever unless I have surgery (which I won’t).

    The hair, however…I’m growing mine out. It’ll take me an extra year or so since I don’t have her thickness, but I can’t wait to have my own luscious poofy curly mane back again.

    And oh yeah…red, yellow, manhole, slingbacks, NYC…inspiring as always. Keep up the great work, Sart! :)

    Then you could be right it may not be Nadia Chin, because this girl has Bigger feet, well if it is Celia and NOT Nadia Chin then it turns out their both Stylists anyway!!!!!

    This is an amazing shot! I love how her face is obscured by all the hair. We maybe never know who this mysterious lady in red is.

    In a blog with so many great photos featuring self expression, for some reason this one grabbed my attention and never really let go. For me, this photo seems to personify the youth and spirit of New York City. Young at heart, and always caught up in the moment.

    The simplicity – yet utter beauty – of this photo and this outfit is gorgeous! The woman’s understated shoes show off her simple and flattering dress. Another simple yet outfit-enhancing shoe style is the Camper Women’s Kim 21241 Mary Jane Pump Shoe.

    The girl is beautiful!! Perfect. Extremely sexy. But..I don’t like sexy anymore.

    If you want all males eyes on you this is the perfect outfit. Males doesn’t care about fashion, care about…sexy body!
