Yet another with feet pointing slightly inwards. Am I missing something or have people forgotten how to stand properly? Please, someone, let me know.

What a contrast to our Lady in Red! This witty costume would be perfect for the next episode of "A Series of Unfortunate Events"...I can see the effort here, and it's a strain...even though I do love the vest. The shoes, sadly, smack of tourist--why not a pair of oxfords? She looks so very unhappy--I want to give her a hug and tell her to cheer up!


Blogger Jane Flanagan said ... (9:54 AM) : 

This is such a perfect shot!


Anonymous louise said ... (10:09 AM) : 

I like her look. She makes me think of P J Harvey.


Anonymous miss fashion said ... (10:10 AM) : 

love the layered look especially the detailing on the waist-coat very english eccentric reminds me of Daphne Guinness..:-)

Is this the photographer from the Prince & Mercer video? Yes, it's true, I am a sartorialist addict!


Anonymous jeff said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Hilarious. Great sense of humor behind this.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:02 AM) : 

There's something I like here, something real, but another part of me sees it as being a bit pretentious. Oh screw it, I like it, I like the morbid tone.

I'd LOVE to see Karen and Jefferson walking down the street together - both so crisp with their slight smatterings of color.

(and her lovely vest button detail is just perfectly revealed!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 AM) : 

Androgynous but not tottaly.
I like how she plays with the details: the school boyish tie, the diva sunglasses. That bag with those shoes.
I believe she’s someone that chooses carefully her wardrobe in order to send a message.
And again, the scenario is brilliant.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:21 AM) : 

Hmmm, this would have been a great ensemble until I saw the shoes. It cuts her off at the ankles and makes her look stumpy.


Anonymous Josh said ... (11:30 AM) : 

those sunglasses are absolutely wonderful


Anonymous wewerewindows said ... (12:08 PM) : 

strictly stilish!


Blogger Andrew said ... (12:20 PM) : 

I don't really find this too appealing. She is almost a mask, wearing a costume, that hides her face and personality.


Blogger stewbie2 said ... (12:21 PM) : 

Looks a little "Johnny Depp" from Willy Wonka....however, I love the vest.


Anonymous ar+ said ... (12:22 PM) : 

too cool for school.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:43 PM) : 

What a look!!!

xox Girl and the City (in Paris)


Blogger Bella07 said ... (12:45 PM) : 

the backdrop you photographed her on, goes perfectly, its awesome gives a bit of sense to her look.... she reminds me of the matrix, that minimal background, with that outfit very cool...however i'm not crazy about the shoe pairing..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:52 PM) : 



Anonymous h2ng said ... (1:08 PM) : 

I love the outfit.Nice shades,shirt collar is perfect with the tie-and most of all i love that bold effect the waistcoat has on the jacket,my impression of her is charmingly foxy.


Anonymous sarang said ... (1:20 PM) : 

its interesting that she is a thin vertical line, standing in front of thin horizontal lines, with HUGE pointed sunglasses. I wonder where she's going...


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Dude looks like a lady!

Blogger S. said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Severe looking yet, great in her very own way!


Blogger Kristy said ... (2:02 PM) : 

Very geeky, very chic-y. Love the aviators with the marching buttons and the sneaks.


Anonymous h. said ... (2:03 PM) : 

this is serious stuff!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:06 PM) : 

like the roller shutter backdrop but outfit waaaay too selfconscious


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:24 PM) : 

Willy Wonka lost his hat! Très cool!

Anonymous lizajane said ... (2:33 PM) : 

I just love this. It is so cool! The shirt, the tie, the vest, the coat teamed with jeans.


Blogger Candid Cool said ... (3:05 PM) : 

I'm throwing in the towel as of right now, i could never top this woman.


Blogger Laviathen said ... (3:13 PM) : 

I don't think the shoes and shades work with the rest of the outfit.


Anonymous zoe said ... (3:13 PM) : 

She looks like a young Karl Wallinger, but not as good.


Anonymous post-it up said ... (3:46 PM) : 

Again, slightly inward pointing feet. What's it all about?


Blogger Roxanna said ... (4:25 PM) : 

that is an amazing, arresting photo. your choice of background just emphasizes that stark quality of her style. Brilliant.


Anonymous Daniel said ... (4:32 PM) : 

perfect lines...nicely done


Blogger stacy said ... (4:34 PM) : 

love it.


Blogger Modelizer said ... (4:39 PM) : 

Adore everything about the photo and her styling. Impeccable.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 PM) : 

She looks gorgeous but very unhappy. I hope it's just a fashionable pose and not her true feelings. She looks like someone who has gotten everything she wants and now isn't sure why she wanted it in the first place.


Anonymous lauren said ... (5:20 PM) : 

androgynous - this makes me smile


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:55 PM) : 

She's pretty cool looking from her ankles on up. Secret Agent Olive Oyl...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Holy crap, this is one of my favorite outfits from this site. Those lines are so crisp! And how on earth did you make that perfect background happen sart??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:23 PM) : 

Wow. This is really great. All of it. Her bored facial expression is perfect with the geeky chic-ness of this whole get-up. Love the vest!!! and the sunglasses..and hair...and coat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 PM) : 

Reminds me a bit of Karl Lagerfeld's manner of dress...only this is better, because of the androgyny. She's daring and I think it works in that, as someone else put it, the long line is consistent. There's a real conviction here.


Blogger tanya said ... (8:34 PM) : 

lines, lines, lines! I recently realized that I love photos with lots of lines, the most recent of which was the one with the staircase.


Blogger Delilah Garside said ... (8:36 PM) : 

What a character. Jeans fit (in every sense of the word) her perfectly.


Blogger Andy • Drew • Andrew said ... (8:47 PM) : 

love. love. love.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:43 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:16 PM) : 

fun combination of a relaxed look (shoes & shirt length, maybe even how tie is worn) with formal (vest, jacket)


Blogger marya said ... (11:13 PM) : 

love this!


Blogger reggy said ... (1:14 AM) : 

Very nice dress,How much it cost,i want one for me.

Blogger Anne Corrons said ... (1:18 AM) : 

Amazing glasses! And what about the white sneakers?
I also see fabulous looks at the tents of Bryan Park every day. The show is also in the hall!


Blogger Rafe Totengco said ... (1:24 AM) : 

she has a very 'Karl' look about her.
her choice of white lace up mocassins is quirky and unexpected


Blogger deborah said ... (2:48 AM) : 

Her style/outfit really suits that background...nice.

Anonymous mex said ... (4:49 AM) : 

A good picture always leaves some space for the viewer to fullfill. This one doesn´t.


Blogger Eryl Shields said ... (4:55 AM) : 

What she's got, baby I want it. Including the nerve to wear shoes that are less than flattering.


Anonymous in my opinion said ... (6:24 AM) : 

Looks like somebody from an old Hal Hartley movie.


Anonymous lfr said ... (10:14 AM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

I've been told the toes pointing in stance is a model thing - supposedly makes your legs look thinner...
As for the white "tourist" shoes...this look was everywhere in Europe this past fall, so naturally it's migrated to America six months later...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 AM) : 

I'd bet that beneath the sombre facade of her expression and outfit lies a spirit of fun and a good sense of humour!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:31 PM) : 

Much too pretentious--it's like she woke up and said, "What would it look like if Lily Tomlin stole Annie Hall's clothes?"


Blogger enc said ... (5:01 PM) : 

That bit down the middle: the shocking white shirt, theh black tie, the cream-colored vest . . . all pointing to the white shoes. I love it.


Blogger Jael Paris said ... (6:13 PM) : 

The hair! The sunglasses! The vest! The purse! I'd only improve on the shoes, but I can't really knock someone for that as they may have been standing all day.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:25 PM) : 

the white shirt peeking out from under the vest looks awkward, it makes her torso look bizarrely long

and the sunglasses...oh no she didnt

the vest saves the outfit tho.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:27 PM) : 

I can't get past the glasses. I hate them! and she needs a pair of heels! Other than that- its not bad..



Anonymous edohnyc said ... (12:35 PM) : 

GREAT SHOT!!! Love her style as well but it's the pic that stands out here. Can't get enough of the grey horizontal lines and the dark vertical line in the foreground. Would love to see other shots on this background. Very NYC!


Blogger boocat said ... (5:35 PM) : 

I wish I had the coat in red velvet.

But I agree about the shoes making her legs look stumpy. They should be yummy oxblood leather.


Anonymous cordelia said ... (6:27 PM) : 

Surprisingly funny!


Blogger LeeAnna said ... (11:11 PM) : 

I like the background. She and the lady in black could get together and have an attitude show down. I'd bet on this one.


Blogger londondog said ... (8:14 AM) : 

Lovely although the shoes are at odds with the outfit, which I admit, may be completely intenetional and a statement in itself.

It's the boy/girl gender bender that is really driving this outfit for me.

P.S. I love her shades. Anyone knows their provenance - please shout.


Anonymous julia said ... (4:25 AM) : 

her shoulders give so much to the look, perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:56 PM) : 

How to be a handsome woman and manage to look bad.



Blogger Alex said ... (4:40 PM) : 

I have seen her at Schiller¨s many times. Always wears the same kind of outfit, even though it really fits her well , it seems that she wears the same same outfit everyday. Nothing new !!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:23 PM) : 

Love love love this. It's like a contemporary version of the incredible Patti Smith


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:13 AM) : 

oh my god, this is karen c the wonderfull fashion photographer!


Blogger Ethan M. said ... (9:14 PM) : 

Double-breasted vest? Best part of the outfit.


Anonymous Deej Respicio Salenda said ... (10:33 PM) : 

Geeky... androgynous... quirky fashion! i kinda get why the sartorialist chose her as a subject...

By the way, doesnt she remind you of some o those characters from Rocky Horror?
