It´s actually almost too perfect!
If I didn´t believe you I´d think it was staged.

Great work

 

Anonymous Vivienne said ... (8:41 AM) : 

prettier than the actual chloe ad

 

Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (8:46 AM) : 

What a wonderful photo!it's fabulous - you must have lightning reactions, Sart! I can't help but laugh with her. I love the way her long black cardigan really brings out the print on her dress and her bag and shoes are perfect together.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:49 AM) : 

i adore her dress! the colours are amazing.

This shot made me smile. A lovely woman having a laugh and looking great. She's awesome.

 

Blogger *indie_queen* said ... (9:21 AM) : 

I love it! And love the black cardigan with the delicate dress

 

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

Somehow what stands out for me in this picture is not really the dress, shoes, cardigan and the slightly visible bag (I think the whole look is very ordinary, personally I would have let it pass), but the capturing of the right moment, the right expression, something that isn't staged, is the saving grace.

 

Blogger Stacy said ... (9:22 AM) : 

a little more 'leg' never hurt any one of your shots... especially when they're as lovely as hers.

 

Blogger Teresa Angelicus said ... (9:23 AM) : 

Perfect in that split second!!!

Great shot.

 

Blogger Shaina said ... (10:20 AM) : 

I love how her legs are posed and hows she's hunched and the way her hair moves and the excited expression! the shoot really makes her and the dress more lively. spectacular shoot! ^^ love the choice of sandals they seemingly match not only the the black long cardigan but also the lilac dress itself, she's wearing.

For the bag I think she could have chosen a better choice. say a black or gold glittery beaded evening clutch, instead? but that's just my opinion, overall her look is very flattering and is a breath of fresh air! ^^

 

Anonymous Ben said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Indeed. It would've been fine originally - now it's one of my favorites!

Fun Photo...I like the way she paired the shoes with the floral dress!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:31 AM) : 

This shot embodies all I love about your photography: the idea that despite layers of makeup, perfect lighting, and immaculately chosen outfits, staged fashion can never compare to true beauty serendipity and a smile.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:38 AM) : 

wonderful shot, as always, sart! you are so talented ... for me this page is 80% art/20% fashion.

that said ... oh my SHOES!! someone ID them for me! they are beautiful.

 

Blogger michaeljosephowens said ... (10:43 AM) : 

This picture is the perfect antidote to the historical weight of this date. She is lovely, in same spirit as the Girl in Pink and Sandals from a few days ago. This shot reminds me of Garry Winogrand's series, "Women are Beautiful." Fantastic work, Scott! The bus was a serendipitous happening!

 

Blogger Eugénie from Paris said ... (10:48 AM) : 

Beautiful smile indeed. Beautiful legs. Amazing feet also. I want these feet.

Wind; Movement; Action...The perfect angle of the building behind, with the bus running through in the back ground... the sweeping hair and the flowing dress harmoniously make this take breath-taking

 

Blogger La Clocharde said ... (12:19 PM) :

You can actually see the movement of the whole scene.

Isn't this great? When the world tries to blow your cool--LAUGH! She's a refreshing antidote to all those hunched-over, hung-over, sad-eyed moppets who take themselves SOOO seriously. Thanks for the laugh, Sart. She's a doll!

Yes, buses whiz by every now and then. But, who would have expected that expression and the stance she has her legs in? It's an otherwise ordinary shot of a woman in a dress, but we can see her inner beauty.

Look at her expression! Wonderful! Great shot! Looks staged but I can tell it's not.

More power to you gig wise, but sheesh i just found out I was missing most of your Bryant Park shots.

Perfect its very rare in fashion that you see a model with a full face smile (yeah I know this isn't a fashion ad/editorial but it should be), eyes smiling and all. I don't know why they don't do that more often, it actually made me feel a really happy emotion, very few, if any, ad photos ever do that.

She looks filled with joy and its wonderful. It made my day.
