    My gosh, she looks so cool, I love how the dress is flowing. It feels so pretty and the raincoat? I love it. WOW, there is more to this photo than what we see, it’s perfect. I would love it if you checked out my blog, I have interesting fashion posts you might love to read.

    Oh my god. This photo is amazing.
    It tells a whole story about a princess, who wanted to become a painter…

    One of my all times favorites!

    The cartoon-style print along the bottom of the skirt is such a great detail! The rain poncho really draws out the color. (Heh heh, pun intended ;D)

    Is that a megaphone or a coffee jug?
    I like the layers, nice.

    this shot is just brilliant, loving everything here, the flowing skirt and that red rain coat. it’s like there is a story there

    A modern-day Little Red Riding hood! Love the sheer coat with that long flowy skirt….


    November 23, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    The dress looks alive, great picture

  23. The Fringes

    November 23, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    This is so beautiful! Her dress flows in the most whimsical way. And I love the little details and pops of colour.

    Great shot!

    oh! this shot is so dream-like, so inspiring! great, great photo…
    congrats from Spain!!!

    there is something very childish about this shot…
    is it the cartoons? or the red rain coat?

  26. Gabriela

    November 23, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    This is wonderful, love the motion! But, at what time of the year does this look belong to?

    this is little red ridinghood!

    Wow, what a dramatic look. I love it!

  29. Gil

    November 23, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Am I nuts or does the raincoat totally defeat the purpose given that the white skirt is dragging on the wet ground? Fashion need not be practical, but this is just odd. Cool skirt, though — reminds me of a hand-embroidered dish towel (in a good way!).

    November 23, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Interesting. Not my favorite look but I appreciate from a photo-style standpoint!

    It looks nice, but not really good protection agains the rain, haha!

    Tokyo street style:

    November 23, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Fab! It is nice to see an image that feels more natural than model and more put together than purchased together. The rich, the famous and the beautiful get a little monotonous. That bag all taped up looks like an abstract painting. Thanks for a touch of grit. This is perfectly lovely.

    So impractical. So beautiful.

  40. Minty

    November 23, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    I love how cool this photo looks! Even if I’m not particularly a fan of the pattern – the swish of her skirts were perfectly captured.

    Intriguing…this picture makes you want to run ahead of her to see what the outfit looks like in front. GREAT PICTURE!!

    November 23, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    Awesome raincoat! Love love love the pop colour!


    November 23, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    This image is fantastic…It looks like a story. The Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf. The dress flying and red cape are very beautiful. We loved it.

  44. Laura

    November 23, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    She looks so quirky and fun, and simultaneously so cool and chic. I don’t know how it’s possible, but this photo proves it is. Also I want that cape!

    just fantastic

    Ah I love this. That skirt is gorgeous and it’s great with the red rain cape (: She looks like little red riding hood all grown up.

    Wow! this is so fascinating and wonderful! I love how quirky yet graceful this combo is! I’ve been curious for a while, do you always ask permission before you use your photos? They are often so candid it makes me wonder if you don’t need to…

    The proportions and lighting on the photo are very well done..

    Too fabulous! I want to see everything in her closet as I’d guess its all stunning. Fantastic to see folks that truly express themselves and their individuality so well.

    Thank you, Scott, on this Thanksgiving Day for the wonderful images that warm our hearts and make us think.! A wonderful day and a wish for the same for the coming years to you and your family and all who stop here.

    That image of the lovely woman in her special gown conjures up so many thoughts–including sadness. What emergency or circumstances could have caused her to venture out in the rain and city soils? I want to set her in a protective bubble and carry her pristine to her destination. I want to give her a new bag without reflective or duct tape holding it together. Some day.

  94. Lady Lynda

    November 24, 2011 at 11:36 am

    I love how the bright color of the cape contrasts so dramatically with the pale pink dress.
    I’m loving too the way the light makes the leather cape glisten
    and the flowing dress look so softly muted. Very well done
    lovely fashion photography. Kudos!!!
    Great shot of London UK
    PS a woman friend was fashion photographer. Curious what
    her thoughts, opinion is.

    Ahhh….the movement is lovely. Great photo and red is my favorite color. I never think of London as particularly fashionable, the females are not that feminine-looking like the French or Italians, but today you’ve changed my mind. Although, I bet she is NOT English.

    I love the train with motifs-seems slightly bridal, and the rain cape-a little bit fairytale ,so whats she doing with the luggage.?A composite of beautiful attire ,whimsical and idiosyncratic

    November 28, 2011 at 10:02 am

    The shot is great and captures the moment with the flowing dress, the air and movement so perfectly.

    The outfit now is another story, I don’t get it either, looks romantic but then there is this cape… so, humm, I’ll stick to the beautifully flowing garments.

    Kisses from Greece!

  126. Victoria

    November 28, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    There’s something about the coat that stands out for me and the way her dress or skirts flows underneath it.

    November 29, 2011 at 1:50 am

    Even though this is such an “out there” look it is soo chic! The combination of fabrics and color are absolutely stunning!

    November 29, 2011 at 2:48 am

    The picture is great but the outfit is a bit too original for my taste

    Super bohemian. I wonder if it was raining that time though. Anyway. I love the way she styles that red cany transparent raincoat…wait is that a Thierry Mugler design???
