Concentrating on the clothing details, that is one interesting high waisted skirt, the bag is a nice size and the shoes are to die for. I have neve been a fan of that type of tank shirt, but I hear New York is enjoying a lovely late summer after a season of wacky weather, so more power to her.

how can she walk in those THINGS!!!!!

Wow! There really isn't much else to say, except... I hope this heavenly creature didn't cause too many accidents today while walking the streets of planet earth.

X marks the spot!

A black city sarong is just perfect for her, isn't it?

PS -- Sart, I'm too busy (lazy) to register at to comment on your photos there, but... They're great! I just wish they could be enlarged. I hope you post some shots here (who's the lady with her picture on her bag? Etc.)


Blogger Maria said ... (12:41 AM) : 

gorgeous woman, she does not look as young or skinny as a model.

Her style is very well measured, not a flaunter: that is for me the sine qua non of elegance.


Blogger Andrew said ... (12:58 AM) : 

Somehow she manages to pull this off. Perhaps because she has beautiful long legs and an elegant demeanor.


Anonymous sarah said ... (1:01 AM) : 

although i do like the outfit, (the shoes in particular) i think she could have chosen a better top

First, let's say the obvious -- she's gorgeous, isn't she? The hair and the smile, lovely. She could wear trashbags and no one would get past the eyes, right?

Ok, now the clothes.

I love the wrap on the shoes. I think there's something innately sexy about the whole light-bondage aspect of tied shoes or sandals. That being said -- they're too high, too elevated and the foam too thick for my puritan tastes. Imagine them down a wee bit closer to the ground and the heel less, I dunno, pointed. Circa 1945, perhaps, or 1975. Same bit of kink, with a wee bit more elegance.

She has an excellent figure, and she's showing it. Good for her! No empire waistline maternity wear here. For the record ladies, my 70 yr old mother calls those cupie dresses "maternity wear," for the simple reason that in 1972, that's what you wore when you were shapless and preggers. Get the picture? Even if you're roomy, love your shape. ESPECIALLY if you're roomy, love your shape. Drape your shape. Don't wear 60's/70's materinity dresses, please. Don't blob out on us.

Back to our lovely girl on the street. Something up top, beneath the smile and killer hair is missing. The purse is great -- echoes the shoes. And I love the dress but the top -- even though it provides some welcome contrast -- seems almost too plain. The shoes hit a historical note, summery, followed by a button dress... and the top fails to deliver.

Still, can *anyone* say she isn't gorgeous? I think not. Long legs, red hair, and a broad smile. An elegant, staueque head turner, for sure!

I love everything about her, especially the contrast between the tee and shoes.

Everything but the 'clunky' shoes..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 AM) : 

oh-my-god! this could perhaps be the perfect outfit. that skirt and those shoes! wherever did she get such masterpieces?


Anonymous fashionholic said ... (4:17 AM) : 

soooo stylish!! love it! she looks beautiful :)


Anonymous Joce said ... (4:46 AM) : 

Amazing legs & shoes !


Blogger tramaturgie said ... (4:47 AM) : 

I love the way these shoes go with that skirt, there's like a link between these two pieces, the skirt wraps beautifully, and it's partly due to the fact that it's hanging from such a high waist. Okay, I really like this outfit, and I really like the girl, but OMG, I think she could have avoided the dark bra under the white top. Such a pity. I hope she didn't do it on purpose


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:57 AM) : 

she's really hot.


Blogger Blaise said ... (5:11 AM) : 

I like the skirt.. and whoa Sart, is that an advertisement on your page?? ;)


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (5:11 AM) : 

ooh i like the skirt!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:19 AM) : 

not keen on the shoes, or the skirt, but not sure that matters as she could be wearing a sack cloth and would still look good.

Thanks, Scott.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 AM) : 

i know i'm supposed to be looking at high waisted skirt etc but her pure kim basinger sexiness makes it kind of irrelevant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:14 AM) : 

I have to separate her lovely looks from the clothes--she needs a new bra, I don't mean to be rude, but I just don't think the top looks good at all because her boobs are down around her waist. A visit to the fabulous Town Shop would fix her right up! The shoes are insane, but more power to her!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:06 AM) : 

bomb-shell. Love her.

not over done for fashion week. not trying to hard. she's hot, she knows it, but she's refined.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (8:29 AM) : 

Beautiful look! Love the skirt!

She is pretty and I I like the skirt and the top-sexy enough.The shoes look bothering large and the bag is anonymous,otherwise well done.

Dear God! Those legs!!!! Don't mind this one at all!


Blogger Jane Flanagan said ... (8:49 AM) : 

Yowza! I'm so envious of women who can walk in heels like this. I would topple instantly!


Blogger nycinside said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Wow, she looks great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:00 AM) : 

Is TT engaged?? What's up with the ring?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:27 AM) : 

She's beautiful, but the very high slit with the very high heels and tight t-shirt look too overtly "sexy" to me. And maybe there's a black bra under the shirt?

If this were toned down a little it would be sexier. But she's very beautiful and I love her down-to-earth smile


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:40 AM) : 

Wow, I could almost cry I want to be her so much. Stunning. Sigh.

very new york.

Absolutely gorgeous.
Sexy without vulgarity.


Blogger Butch said ... (12:19 PM) : 

Love for sale? The shoes are almost self-parodying: sort of Minnie Mouse goes Kraft-Ebbing.

Perhaps more to the point, they bring the eye down, down, down while "shortening" the legs above.
And their weightiness is in unflattering contrast to the airiness of the rest.

OK. I'll stop now.

She's truly fabulous. Love the simple cut of the skirt - highlights her long, long, long legs!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:21 PM) : 

Where can I get a pair of those heels?! Does anybody know? She looks exactly like the woman I want to be, and am in my secret mind. Cool, elegant, effortless, intelligent, laid back, chic, sophisticated, doesn't take herself too seriously, fun, understated, etc.... *WOW*
make that *Whoawhoawewa!*

Taylor - if you read this and ever come to London, please may I fall in love with you...?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 PM) : 

There's something happening when the high waist skirt and tiny top meet. Her upper torso gets zeroed out, it's gone, obliverated. A more prominent top would be better. And more delicate shoes, they're clunky. She's too hot to make mistakes like these ;)


Blogger victor said ... (6:22 PM) : 

is anyone else against this outfit?
obviously she's beautiful and it works, but I think the high waisted short skirt makes her torso look short and legs freakishly long, (maybe that was the point?)

Also, not a fan of the shoes in this getup, think the shirt/skirt combo deserves something simpler the shoes seem overcomplicated in comparison to the simplicity of the rest of the outfit.

shame she's married...

Oh MR, you have got to put Roger Federer on your blog. The men has style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:05 PM) : 

This woman is really, really attractive, but when I step back and look at the outfit as a whole for some reason I don't like it. I don't think it's optimally flattering for her. The top with the black bra underneath I think is what is bothering me the most--it makes her look unbalanced. I also think that given the choice of top a more delicate shoe would move the outfit further in the direction of classy. I could see this woman looking stunning in a ladylike dress and delicate heels; Ulla's outfit a few weeks back was a good example of that kind of dressing.


Blogger jillybins said ... (10:14 PM) : 

i love her shoes!


Blogger jillybins said ... (10:17 PM) : 

i love her shoes especially the heels.

i love her skirt....but her smile is what makes the look pop

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 PM) : 

This woman has the kind of natural radiance, glowy beauty, and, well, height that makes us short women feel like schlumps no matter how nice we try to look. I am jealous of those great gams! Great skirt to show them off!


Blogger BeautyinBaltimore said ... (11:09 PM) : 

Wow, I'm a sucker for red hair. She is very stylish too.


Blogger Candid Cool said ... (11:22 PM) : 



Blogger The Bombshell Biker said ... (11:39 PM) : 

The shoes and the bag bring the simpleness of the outfit up a notch. But what I love most is the stack of bangles atop the gold watch! and the skirt is an intersting cut- more than just the average black mini... oh yeah- and she's simply g-e-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!

Honestly though, this picture is not even about the clothes. With a body, hair, face and a smile like hers, she could wear a brown bag... or a birthday suit, and she would look marvelous. Which kind of begs the question. What is this blog about?!!?


Blogger Pistachio Of Liberty said ... (3:26 AM) : 

Yes, a better bra, and/or posture would make this even better. Also, after so many years in jobs requiring black bottom and white blouse, I'd rather her top to be colored. Still - God I'm jealous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:27 AM) : 

ahh! the black bra! and the short waist too. these things make the look less than amazing for me. but it doesn't really matter that much cos clearly she is hot-hot-hot.


Blogger pig_93 said ... (3:41 AM) : 

she does look great.
her whole outfit just seems to work despite it being so simple. its ALWAYS in the shoes. this one just confirms it.

great shot.

are those balenciaga shoes? i really fell in love with those... but personally i think she is way hotter in them than i would have been.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (1:34 PM) : 

Love the hair, the skirt and the dress!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:08 PM) : 

There is no question: the shirt is frumpy and is not flattering for her physique. She gave up there, when the shoes and skirt demanded so much more! I love this blog, but it does annoy me when the posts focus on the"wowza" subject/object rather than the clothes or the wearer's panache in pulling off a look.

Anyway, there have been much better ensembles on these pages, her obvious attractiveness notwithstanding.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:11 PM) : it just me, or does there seem to be an increase in the number of men on this blog, here to view the goodies (read: hot women) rather than relish the ephemeral delights of fashion? yuckity yuck yuck.


Blogger Jude said ... (5:33 PM) : 

Simple. Sexy. Well done!

p.s. FABULOUS Shoes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:26 PM) : 

at first glance i like it, but the shoes are too heavy for her frame. they are nice shoes though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:50 PM) : 

the skirt is interesting (in a good way), but would probably be a very unfortunate choice for those of us with anything more than a washboard stomach. and i dont think those shoes would do any favors for women who aren't long and lean, as she is. but imagine this outfit with a normal mini-skirt. she'd look like a -ahem- workin woman (with expensive accesories), especially if she weren't such a fresh-faced, earthy beauty. i mean put it together: see-thru tank with contrasting bra, mini-skirt cut-up-to-there, stacked, strappy platform heels. in any other permutation, it would spell utter disaster (or desperation!).

i'm certain this woman is painfully fashionable, so everything is intentional, even the peek-a-boo bra (kinda wish she hadn't). she could probably stand for a little more "support," especially when wrangling with the dimensions of the high waist.

but she does achieve a mystifying balance between tartiness and earthiness, and her creativity must be applauded. oh, and i covet her bangles.


Blogger The Nerdy Fashionista said ... (9:31 PM) : 

wow I love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 PM) : 

Curious to know how tall she is. (I'm 6 feet tall myself, and wonder if somebody as tall as I could do those shoes ...)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 PM) : 

even if you were as straight as an arrow, this girl could make you have doubts.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:29 AM) : 

Wow! Simplistically elegant and very sexy! However, the bra cheapens her outfit, she needs to wear a nude one.


Blogger Elle said ... (5:34 AM) : 

The shoes are the best part of the whole thing.

And yes, it is curious to know how one can pull off those shoes if above 5'6". (I'm 5'6.5") The pint sized Olsens can obviously get away with it.

Still! Lovely nonetheless.


Blogger Lauren said ... (10:48 AM) : 

even though this is rather late.... i feel like i need to say something about 'anonymous' john from l.a.'s post.

i couldn't help but be a little annoyed by his description of clothing with empire waists as 'maternity wear.' of course, they are comfortable and flattering for many pregnant or recently pregnant women. nothing is better than building confidence when your body goes through rapid & intense changes. but here are my two main problems:
1. just because your mother says it, doesn't ever make it the ultimate truth. even if that's what they were called in 1972, we are now 30 years in the future. get over the fact that NOTHING in fashion is brand new. if you follow this blog, how can you not realize that it's all about reinterpretation?
2. i'm rather disturbed that you encourage women who are 'roomy' to flaunt their shape directly after you've called pregnant women 'shapeless.' [which you spelled 'shapless,' by the way.]
one of the more recent and perhaps best trends in fashion is the acceptance of maternity wear as a legitimate market.
in my opinion, that also means that pregnancy is not just accepted as something that will happen, but that a woman's body at that time is different than it will ever be again, and why shouldn't she want to look just as attractive?

unless you crossdress [which is a fabulous expression of being a woman], i always find it hard to accept a man outside of the fashion industry feeling the need to socially construct a woman's image.

Shoes too high, she didn't need more height. I hope she wasn't going to work in corporate america dressed like that?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:24 PM) : 

She carries this off well. The shoes are very extreme, but she works them well. Not for the uninitiated however. This could be scary on the wrong body type. I read your comments. I hope this site doesn't just turn into a cheering section for all the shots.


Blogger AnastasiaC said ... (6:45 PM) : 

i really dont know if I like this look - she's got the perfect body for it and they are classic pieces but somehow it looks a little it the shoes?? not sure...

Those shoes are Proenza Schouler! I got a pair with the same wooden heel but pumps yesterday. They are wonderful and much more comfortable then they look.

I love everything thing here but the tank top, it looks like a chesty bonds reserved for excruciatingly hot days, the beach, home and young kids...sorry.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:20 AM) : 

For everyone asking about where to get the shoes, they may be designer, but I got what looks like the exact same pair last night from Vera Wang's collection at Kohl's! Don't know if they're on but in store they're even 30%. I never would have gotten them if I hadn't seen them on this lovely lady first, but I plan on wearing them into the fall with nice textured black tights (also by Vera Wang & also 30%!) Thanks for the bit of inspiration, Sart!
