A Different Day, A Different Mood for Silver Eyes, New Delhi

Comments on "A Different Day, A Different Mood for Silver Eyes, New Delhi"


Blogger Darlene Sinclair said ... (6:39 AM) : 

Looks like comfort and style - great combination. Fun and practical. That's good, too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:43 AM) : 

Imagine this in NY.


Blogger marchingbandemporium said ... (6:47 AM) : 

Another beautiful photo, and a fantastic combination of clothes that go so well with the wearer.

I don't know whether it is the light, the people, the backdrops, or all three, but India seems to suit your style incredibly well. I have loved every photo you have taken there.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (7:29 AM) : 

The lightning is perfect.


Blogger Girly said ... (7:36 AM) : 

Wow! Wow! Wow!


Blogger Memento said ... (7:45 AM) : 

Now that's a more realistic look for India! The previous one in tights were so out of place with the weather here.

I have been following your blog the last few months and always felt that the people you shoot were just too well dressed to be floating around on the streets. I think the India pictures are definitely far more realistic and closer to everyday life than the rest. Loving them!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:48 AM) : 

Diggin' the slim fit of the shirt+the baggier bottoms. And also the colors in the top+her skin tone and hair...perfect.


Blogger Ana said ... (7:53 AM) : 

The way her hair blows is fierce. I also love the early evening photograph below, so painterly and dream like.


Blogger Diana said ... (8:14 AM) : 

but the same shoes...

I wouldn't recognize her, though.
she is really beautiful.


Blogger lynn said ... (8:17 AM) : 

Not so keen on the bottom half but my what a stunning girl and a lovely top. Great shot.


Blogger Emily said ... (8:17 AM) : 

This is fabulous. Your India trip is only fueling my own desire to go!

Have you ever thought of doing a book?


Blogger NorthShore Chicago said ... (8:23 AM) : 

Simply amazing photo and style. Sart, you've made me notice women's fashion like I never have before. I was always style conscious for myself and menswear, but the combo of your site and a great season of Project Runway has taken my appreciation for women's wear to a new level. Thank you.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:27 AM) : 

I like this look much better. What a change!


Anonymous angela said ... (8:28 AM) : 

i do have to agree that these shots from India are my favorite of yours....just beautiful :)


Blogger Barbara said ... (8:28 AM) : 

I like her hair. Its almost like she turned around, and you snapped her picture. Great colors.


Blogger Ammu said ... (8:30 AM) : 

Great picture - I love her waistcoat and the proportions of her top and bottom - she rocks the trousers and that hair.
I love your pictures from India - as an Indian living in London, I love how contemporary these pics are. And beautiful.


Blogger suzannemarques said ... (8:57 AM) : 

gorgeous! love how she can transform herself. she is fabulous


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:06 AM) : 

Can't help but notice you picked 2 fashionistas in a city of millions and posted two images each of them. No doubt they are great shots but can't help but ponder what fashion statements are made each day on the streets of Delhi by real people.


Blogger cassaundra said ... (9:20 AM) : 

the possibilities are endless with this girl.
i admire her.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:22 AM) : 

She looks a million times better here. The hair is gorgeous, and the ease of this shirt/trouser combo is lovely. I wouldn't even realize this was the same woman as the previous photo.


Anonymous aitch said ... (9:27 AM) : 

Wow. I really like this. She looks pretty, yet natural and she looks like a woman and not a girl as in the previous post. Look I'm saying something nice for a change.


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (9:53 AM) : 

What a gorgeous woman! I love the way she's cropped her pants and the beautiful embroidery on the top.


Blogger vintage &stardust said ... (10:02 AM) : 

Your pictures are amazing!! And the girl is so cute:) Such a beauty!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:06 AM) : 

very interesting picture,considering the green-yelow car behind,just great...


Anonymous aman randhawa said ... (10:11 AM) : 

this is what India is now.People always expect it to be extremly disconnected with the rest of the world somehow.


Blogger sam said ... (10:16 AM) : 

Perfect colours in the photo.

I love how you can see her confidence in the pictures. She can carry off anything.


Blogger swiles89 said ... (10:30 AM) : 

I love the way she can pull off the baggy-sweat-pants type look of those pants while at the same time wearing heels. She looks good yet so comfortable and casual


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:34 AM) : 

i thought she was 14 in the previous photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:50 AM) : 

Interesting how this is hippie/boho chic, but when you think about it, the original inspiration for Western hippie chic comes, at least in part, from India.
I'd love to know where she found these clothes, and/or who designed them? In any case, I love every aspect of this outfit, and I'd wear it entirely.


Anonymous Bill said ... (10:51 AM) : 

OK, now if that doesn't rock from here to eternity, what does? Gorgeous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Love the relaxed mood of this photo.


Blogger ladyfresh said ... (11:35 AM) : 

What a difference! Fantastic contrast in style and mood.


Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (11:40 AM) : 

Ah, what a difference. These baggy trousers are fabulous. And the details of the vest are stunning. This is one of my favorite looks from India because I could easily see myself emulating this style and feeling comfortable and attractive.


Blogger Mary said ... (12:09 PM) : 

wow. i can't believe that's the same woman. i admire versatility in fashion.


Anonymous amy c. said ... (12:19 PM) : 

Well, it does help that she is absolutely gorgeous. I like the combination, but I'm wondering how it might look on an older woman with a few extra pounds....

Where can I get those shoes? They look terrific.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:33 PM) : 

In colors that otherwise would have blended into the background, the citrus green and yellow enhance the details of her shirt and patttern of her capris, equating to a beautifully scenic picture. The tree works in the same manner as well!


Blogger dean said ... (12:41 PM) : 

This woman is fantastic. What an eclectic balance to her previous fresh, conservative, pink-shirted look. If it weren't for the shoes, I wouldn't have believed you that this was the same woman...


Blogger Anne Corrons said ... (12:50 PM) : 

Fabulous colors on the background!


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

She is gorgeous.


Blogger Books said ... (12:54 PM) : 

With all these India photos I love the contrast between the typically urban dress and the rural surroundings.


Blogger candid cool said ... (1:10 PM) : 

wow! a night & day difference (expect both are shot during the day)
stunning, absolutely stunning, perfection how the wind catches her hair. and that top is wow!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:15 PM) : 

Gees Sart, how many more of these are you hiding from us? So fresh. Show them now!

V. (very fed up with Milan)


Blogger amyw said ... (1:51 PM) : 

Awesome. I love the loose, casual pants paired with the detailed top and heeled shoes. Great contrast!
People in India are seriously stylish. And these are some of the absolute best pictures I've ever seen on this blog (well, I like all of them, but these are some of my favorites).


Anonymous nalini said ... (1:51 PM) : 

@ books:

Um, the surroundings are urban too. The shots are all from New Delhi. India's urban areas just happen to be a bit greener than their counterparts in most Western countries.


Blogger pikake said ... (2:00 PM) : 

Good lord this woman is stunning! She was in the first shot as well, but in a completely different way. I love that she is wearing the same sandals and similar menswear-type bottoms but in a totally different look. She's amazing. Gorgeous hair and fabulous embelleshed vest.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:18 PM) : 

I really like that there is some "Indian-ness" to her oufit. You couln't just cut and paste her into NY.


Blogger Opaline said ... (2:44 PM) : 

Soda the warrior princess. I love the pants.


Anonymous K said ... (2:49 PM) : 

Love her hair down and the very different look from her other picture. What a fashion chameleon! More pictures from India please!!!


Blogger Ciaran Moore said ... (2:59 PM) : 

Hey, I think I'm falling in love with this woman.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:32 PM) : 

Unlike the other Indian woman in earlier posts who has that irritiating Amelie ingenue thing going on, I love how intense and fierce this woman looks; how unabashedly sexy and menacing.


Anonymous Rebekah said ... (3:45 PM) : 

i don't like the shoes with the rest of the outfit, but everything else looks very fresh.


Blogger Caroline said ... (3:48 PM) : 

ohhhhhh my. she is gorgeous, and so is her top. ayeye!


Blogger Agyesh said ... (3:56 PM) : 

cool to the power of a million...


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (4:45 PM) : 

What a face!

Love the light as well.


Blogger Susan said ... (4:47 PM) : 


Perfect blend of ancient India + British Raj + Indian beauty (those Eyes n hair!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:33 PM) : 

The light is great! I think there is a great difference in the light of your photos from India comparing to the photos from Europe ot NY.


Blogger BunnyBones said ... (5:42 PM) : 

she's great. i love your India picks!! makes me want to go 10 times more now !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:16 PM) : 

Is that a shalwar she's wearing?


Blogger raymi lauren said ... (6:52 PM) : 

so wonderful


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 PM) : 

Is this really the same woman? She's gone from proper in pink to relaxed and sexy; I didn't recognise her until I read the entry title. Love this whole outfit, especially the fit of the pants.


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

loving the harem pants...i want them


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:20 PM) : 

Please photograph Lauren Davis. I saw her at Conde Nast today and I think she is the chicest woman alive.


Anonymous GourMay Chef said ... (9:09 PM) : 

That top is fantastic-- so earthy yet sophisticated and vibrant. I love how her hair just falls loosely around her, letting the wind just take it however it wants.


Blogger TresChic said ... (10:55 PM) : 

Wow, you know sometimes I don't always agree that the hodgepodge of clothes works in some of the photos. Not here. This works. In such an effortless and beautiful way. I love the drops of colors and her long flowing hair. This is an amazing photo.


Blogger La Terpette said ... (10:56 PM) : 

Isn't this the same woman from the earlier post with the tights? If it is she is quite the style chameleon.


Blogger said ... (11:38 PM) : 

She is stunning, I saved this outfit to my lookbook :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 PM) : 

these pictures from new delhi are so gorgeous, thank you for sharing them with us: i feel as though their use of colour and the different shapes the fabric makes of the clothes makes the fahsion so much more organic than in north america...

their clothes (from what i know) don't scream a certain designer... but they rival any new yorker...


Blogger brando said ... (1:06 AM) : 

At the risk of sounding cliche... FIERCE!


Blogger Fashion Tidbits said ... (1:45 AM) : 

she's beautiful


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 AM) : 

The textile design of the top is a variation of the design which was called "Miriam Makeba" in N.E. Congo during the sixties of the 20th century. In many parts of Africa each extile design had its own name. Very likely this still is the case.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:46 AM) : 

Love the hair and how it frames her face. Fierce!

The top ensemble is interesting and fun but the bottoms are a let down with the shoes.

Love the India shots! When are you going somewhere in Africa?


Blogger Muriel Mercurial said ... (3:46 AM) : 

This is probably the best outfit I've seen on here for a while, which is crazy considering how many amazing outfits there are.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:12 AM) : 

Her eyes are piercing in their intensity, without appearing angry or malevolent. She has the eyes of an icon (as in Orthodox iconography). You may have taken photos of her for the world to look at, but it is she who is looking at us. Visceral and a bit surreal.



Blogger imcha said ... (6:31 AM) : 

Chic Bohemian. Love her attitude.


Blogger Jo. said ... (7:58 AM) : 

What an incredible change. One day a girl, the other day a woman :-)


Anonymous Amelimelo said ... (8:15 AM) : 

Colors are wonderful !


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (8:56 AM) : 

Great photograph...the camera really loves her.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:37 AM) : 

she looked so innocent and whats the word... direct in the first picture you took of her, but in this one.. she's all va va vooom and femme :D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:51 AM) : 

Lovely but I would really like to see what non-fashion-professionals are wearing in Delhi. 2 posts each of 2 fashion professionals makes me suspect that you have not found enough other inspiration?


Blogger malingyun said ... (11:26 AM) : 

I really do admire your pics, Sart. But I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed that you've featured two of the same people from New Delhi twice. Where's the mix?


Blogger Kanani said ... (12:14 PM) : 

India is just my favorite. Where else can you see women in bright orange saris moving baskets of bricks? Or walk alone at night and maneuver around cows?

She's beautiful. She's very fashion forward --those knickers and the form fitting blouse would be seen very "daring" in some places in rural India (like out in Rajasthan).

I hope you're having fun. I've got lots of travel stories about India. Are you going to see Falguni & Shane?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:36 PM) : 

She looks like she didn't try too hard. Loving the way she mixed it up, very individual.


Blogger MaryMary-Jane said ... (2:53 PM) : 

the shape of the trouthers ist gorgeous


Blogger Sefu said ... (4:18 PM) : 

I sense sentiments of one enamoured...

Hope you had a great trip : )


Blogger scarlettholly said ... (4:34 PM) : 

that's absolutely amazing - fantastic.


Blogger Carmi said ... (5:03 PM) : 

Great slice of life photo! I always find the best clothes for a given individual or situation don't draw attention to themselves. They facilitate - they don't dominate.


Anonymous isaac said ... (5:54 PM) : 

the overshirt strikes me as unnessecary and detrimental.

but gosh it warms her skin tone..

on a different note, the hair over her left shoulder contrasting the truck is fantastic. and how it starts so evenly in the autumn leaves and falls down.. nice.


Blogger JouJou Loves You said ... (5:55 PM) : 

India suits your camera.


Blogger nata en feu. said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Those shorts are epic!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:39 PM) : 

fantastic everything--inspiring--thanks!


Blogger Ridonkulus said ... (8:30 PM) : 

it's amazing how clothes and hair can change a persona. in the pink blouse and neat updo, she looked demure. here is looks sexy sophisticated with her hair down and no stockings.


Anonymous K said ... (8:36 PM) : 

OMG! I love it! I love her, the outfit, the photo! I love it all.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:48 PM) : 

i love the relaxed-comfort pants look with heels. awesome. also the colors in the photo are beautiful as well, so is the lighting!!!


Blogger Alice said ... (8:52 PM) : 

trés chique!
But i would have worn flats instead of those shoes..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:42 PM) : 

Thank you for capturing fashion and style in rising countries. I've been to Southeast Asia this past winter and the women from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City proved that original style transcends money and designer names.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:24 PM) : 

love it.


Blogger 雷默 said ... (2:20 AM) : 

Fantastic. And conclusively disproves the argument that you only shoot women pigeon-toed or with legs crossed at the ankles!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:34 AM) : 

This is pretty much what I want to look like everyday during the summer. Great!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:41 AM) : 

this would look really stupid anywhere else. but i guess location must be a consideration when dressing, i.e. resort wear.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:19 AM) : 

She looks beautiful and mysterious, and yes exotic, in the dictionary intriguing unusual beauty.
I was called exotic when younger.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 PM) : 

Dear Sartorialist,

I very much appreciate your blog and your work. It is a true inspiration to me.

I am amazed with your latest shots taken in India and I think it is a very positive contribution to the diversity on your blog. However I am curious about your motivation to use the same model again. Why did you do this and are you planning to do this more often? I wonder about how much these photo's are prepared and how much control you take in them. Although they are very nice shots it loses spontaneity and becomes fashion photography as known from magazines etc.

All the best for the future.


Blogger brisia said ... (2:57 PM) : 

congratulations for the blog.


Blogger Johan Martens said ... (3:18 PM) : 

that is one beautiful girl and her style is great, could have walked the catwalks I think


Blogger Juliet said ... (4:03 PM) : 

Amazing girl! I really love that combo.

I am from India and I want to thank you for exposing the culture and fashion from the country. It's a great change from the European countries and America.


Blogger Eric said ... (8:55 AM) : 

This works better for her. I dig it!


Blogger Mylinh said ... (11:24 AM) : 

I love the composition of this photograph. Rich colours in the background. Beautiful movement of the hair, gorgeous face and top. Not really feeling the shoes, but overall, I couldn't stop looking at this photo for a while.


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

We miss you! Where are you?


Blogger DIABLESSE said ... (2:22 PM) : 

Life is beautiful and your photos are so full of life. When I see them I can´t help but think that we have to fight for our individuality. At last that's what defines us, what creates our style. Your work reminds me that I have to stay true to myself, to my taste, to my heart. Thank you, Scott! Living in a third world country sometimes kills my fashion thoughts, but then you appear and make me want to dream a little bit higher!

Kisses from Mexico!


Blogger pearlescent said ... (5:52 PM) : 

Her free relaxed style comes through, and her hair in the wind adds to this care-free feel.. I like how she paired everything together mixing in traditional items, and I love how her pants are gathered like that..


Blogger bomb.ass.ting said ... (7:58 PM) : 

Why imagine this in NY? Why can't you simply imagine it as it is - in India?


Blogger katherinealbin said ... (9:44 PM) : 

It looks like she's wearing some classic Candies, which I love. A fifties Barbie shoe. :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:43 AM) : 

no photo from you for the 4th day now.....where are you? please come back quick. i need my daily fix. by the way beautiful beautiful photos. thanks sart, you're the best.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:00 PM) : 

I think the fact that you've used the same person twice shows your keen eye for individuality and your sense of taste. The way people antagonize you for your choices irks me and I question why they follow your blog. Just show them what's up Sart and keep doing your own thing. I like to call these people "haters" and right now I'm "hatin'" on them.



Anonymous Ambrosiality said ... (7:09 PM) : 

Absolutely stunning!!

I love her whole look, the background colors, how her hair looks like its being blown~


Blogger karina said ... (1:32 AM) :

This is such a beautiful shot. She herself, is gorgeous, and the look she has put together is elegant and unstudied at the same time. That is really the point isn't it.
