Very very stylish. Loving the style and dedication coming from Moscovites.

Great leather jacket! She's got a cool punk ballerina look going.

Fabulous! I love it!!!

god I love this so so so so much. I think this is my favorite ever.

 

Anonymous linda said ... (11:24 AM) : 

She's unquestionably gorgeous and her clothes are great.


Would the outfit work as well if she wasn't as tall and skinny?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:25 AM) : 

DA!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:25 AM) : 

stopping traffic

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

I can only see HER FACE!

 

Blogger cassaundra said ... (11:37 AM) : 

ooo, i love this girl. her style is impeccable and unexpected. i think i'll call her ... lovely.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:42 AM) : 

stunning!

 

Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (11:48 AM) : 

What?! this is amazing.. not only from a fashion point of view, but artistically! The black and white horizontal lines painted on the concrete slap, and her black and white ensemble...and yeah, it does look like she's stopping traffic. Genius. I love it. I'm curious? Do you give your subjects pose ideas or do they come up with them on their own? I'm diggin this one.

 

Blogger starbahks said ... (11:51 AM) : 

WOW.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:13 PM) : 

My favorite shot of late! First of all, she is gorgeous. But what I really love is the combination of the polka dots, the grommets on her shoes, the stripes on the wall, and the zig-zags of her legs.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:22 PM) : 

HOT!

 

Blogger Sanna said ... (12:24 PM) : 

The weird thing is I don't even like the clothes but she is stunning nevertheless..

 

Blogger Jonathan said ... (12:28 PM) : 

What a composition!

I love how her right arm and left leg are at the same angle as the painted chevrons, and her right leg is at right angles to that. The chevron theme (look at the set of her lips, too) fits in nicely with the knit details on her scarf, and the rounded details on her jacket echo the automobiles (particularly the side mirrors) and the cupola on the building in the background, and those contrast nicely with the sharp angles of the chevrons.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:31 PM) : 

fabulous

 

Anonymous Isobel Saoirse Dylan said ... (12:40 PM) : 

Only one thing to say: WOW!!!

 

Anonymous Valentine said ... (1:26 PM) : 

What's not to love? Beautiful girl, beautiful outfit, and beautiful setting--the planets must have aligned just right for you to have taken such a perfect shot.

I particularly like that her outfit is cohesive but not boring. I was trying to figure out what all the separate pieces are and got as far as sweater, jacket, skirt, before I realized there were a few extra textures and zippers in the mix. Then I gave up and decided that this works just because it WORKS.

I also have to add 3 things about the girl:
1. This is why I would never say leggings don't look good on ANYONE. Once in a blue moon, the perfect girl and the perfect outfit do come along.
2. The pose is wonderful. So many others would look awkward and gangly with those long limbs, but she looks quite graceful.
3. I love that some of the most striking faces on this blog are wearing what appears to be absolutely no make up.

 

Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (1:29 PM) : 

That jacket looks friggin' expensive....
Cute girl.

 

Blogger Dominica said ... (1:41 PM) : 

my daughter in 5 years time (she loves this style...)

Beautiful, she looks marvelous!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:53 PM) : 

I like the girl but not her outfit from the 90s. Also, I've a feeling the other blond girl from Moscow has the same (or similar) jacket, no?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:17 PM) : 

Masterful composition.
Beautifully poignant subject.
I've only recently discovered this blog; it's quickly become an obsession.

Blu at 70

 

Blogger D. said ... (2:31 PM) : 

Is that left shoe unlaced? Are those sneaker heels, or just strategically posed flats?

I don't think I like the tutu thing, but I can't tell while she's sitting down.

 

Anonymous Sally said ... (2:41 PM) : 

"...Would the outfit work as well if she wasn't as tall and skinny?"

I don't think it matters. Getting dressed is about understanding your body and who you are, then playing up your assets. She looks beautiful.

 

Blogger S said ... (3:04 PM) : 

Everything about this photo is so great! and she looks cool.

 

Anonymous Nick said ... (3:06 PM) : 

beautiful beautiful beautiful

 

Blogger catherine pri said ... (3:16 PM) :

Blogger Stephanie said ... (3:28 PM) : 

such an artistic shot. simply gorgeous girl, beautiful pose. all perfection!

 

Blogger Camille said ... (3:32 PM) : 

How beautiful. What a leg shot!
She reminds me of a Natalia Vodianova here.

 

Blogger J.A.F. said ... (4:37 PM) : 

Wow! did I say Wow?,

 

Blogger coco said ... (5:21 PM) : 

I looooooooove this picture! Gorgeous!

 

Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (5:30 PM) : 

Stunning!

 

Anonymous stella said ... (5:30 PM) : 

only she could wear that.

it's some wild svelte grace that allows her to wear those black leggings without making her skinny limbs look spidery.

and that wide mouth. striking, unforgettable. without it, her face would look extremely pretty in a conventional way. although such a mouth would never let her be pretty, it makes her irreplaceable.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:45 PM) : 

That is spot on. The leather jacket, the soft knitted cowl neck and the tulle under the skirt all remind me of Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan. But this girl, with the sexy pout, innocent knock knee pose and the body of a model takes even the powerhouse attitude of Madonna to a new level. Bravo.

 

Blogger margarita said ... (7:07 PM) : 

love the scenarium! i realy like the the simplicity with witch people pose for the photos

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:36 PM) :

Blogger Kathy said ... (10:54 PM) : 

Awesome outfit and it only gets better with her expression.

 

Blogger Bronwyn said ... (12:20 AM) : 

Oh how I wish I were 30 years younger again. I could have worn that, no problem.

 

Blogger antros! said ... (1:19 AM) : 

what does this shot great for me, is the urban seat, that black and white concrete, make an obvious but perfect spot for the photo. And the jacket it's just great.

 

Blogger secret stylist said ... (4:19 AM) : 

love it, loving short skirts at the mo with leggings and boots, she ooozes cool. the mix of the spots and stripes rocks

 

Blogger Barbara said ... (6:24 AM) : 

A gazelle! Love the monochromatic look. She's in a tiny minority of women who look good in leggings. This could be Paris..........

the whole outfit is perfection

 

Anonymous Kazzy said ... (5:53 AM) : 

Put together beautifully, and her own unique way. It could be toned down amazingly just by changing skirts. Straight from work to play... now you're talking!

 

Anonymous nathalie said ... (9:46 AM) : 

that's like a ballerina clown, i love it.

 

Blogger The Calvin Show said ... (4:14 PM) :

Blogger ~Nataliya~ said ... (6:02 AM) : 

she reminds me of Ashley Olsen........don't know why....

 

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

the grey cowl grounds it and keeps it from looking too cheap. love the flirty edges of everything. shoes big at ankles, skirt flitting out, cowl coming down, lapel flying outward. lots of angles. love it.

 

Blogger carlotta said ... (9:19 AM) : 

molto chic!

 

Blogger The Fashion Fiend said ... (12:21 PM) : 

OMG! I love this!
I love the details on the leather jacket and the juxtaposition of the hard mixed with the feminine. And it all works. Too good.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:44 PM) : 

she's gorgeous. i hope she's a model because if she isn't, she is missing out on thousands.

 

Blogger Simone said ... (8:05 AM) : 

this look is adorable.

i never really thought of moscow when thinking about fashion and style, but all your moscow shots are definitely changing that!

keep up the fantastic work.

 

Blogger Taylor said ... (12:29 PM) : 

very chic, i like how shes wearing a backpack too

 

Blogger Victória said ... (12:39 PM) : 

OMG! a Brazilian and I watched your interview, you are so wonderful!congratulations, nice picture

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:28 PM) : 

Fantastic!
Great combination!
I wouldn't change anything!
Maybe a much redder lipstick and a touch of blush, that's all!

 

Anonymous goa india said ... (12:16 AM) :

Blogger bandedkrait said ... (3:31 AM) :

GORGEOUS!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:15 PM) : 

Look at that pose and tell me she's not a professional! That said, it's nice to see a model with such a natural sense of style and moxie.

 

Anonymous Meg said ... (9:18 PM) : 

I LOVE it!
The shoes, the jacket, that skirt and the pose... It's fabulous.
