Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 AM) : 

This is such a beautiful girl and outfit. It reminds me so much of an equally beautiful Michelle Williams on the red carpet I guess a few years ago now, in a yellow dress (?Vera Wang), red lipstick and loose low chignon. She copped a bit of flack but she really opened my eyes to yellow.

Chloe - apropos parasols and umbrellas, they're quite common here in Sydney during summer. Just do it!

 

Blogger Anik L. said ... (9:31 AM) :

Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (9:48 AM) : 

those little white gloves are killing me....so delicate.

to me she looks sort of like a Toulouse Lautrec painting, because of the eyes, the red lip, the hair, and the shoae she is making.

 

Blogger Carmen said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Wow - this is gorgeous! I love everything about it - the delicate gloves, the look in her eye, the red lips and of course the great color of her dress.

 

Blogger Zakuro said ... (10:09 AM) :

What a lovely look. I nearly bought some gloves like that a few weeks ago. I think I may have to go back and get them now.

 

Blogger M said ... (11:54 AM) : 

That shot is amazing. Everything about it.

(And it took me a long time to say that,when I want to comment on your posts everyday; but I just can't because I feel intimidated.) ;)

It doesn't get any more Gatsby than this. Your Governor Island shots are always a hoot. Did you carry a flask to the shoot and will you be posting more shots of the dancers? I hope so!

 

Blogger jewlover2 said ... (12:30 PM) : 

Parasols are so underrated. they are absolutely wonderful for the sun and fit my 1940's style perfectly. I stand out but I don't care. :) I'm nice and protected from the sun.

 

Anonymous Eeda said ... (12:32 PM) : 

This is such a gorgeous picture -- very old Hollywood!

 

Blogger Fannah said ... (12:39 PM) : 

The most beautiful gloves ever. I own some kind of those but I just can't wear them with anything, anywhere. Dárn it suits her.

What a princess!!! Wauv!

 

Blogger Laura said ... (2:03 PM) : 

What's really great about this photo is that she may be in head to toe vintage but she doesn't look like she's wearing a costume. She manages to look Classic and Modern at the same time.

 

Blogger Susana said ... (2:08 PM) : 

This is my favorite photograph ever! I love the combination of red and mustard (which is my favorite fashion color). It is perfect!

 

Anonymous Hannah said ... (2:22 PM) : 

I LOVE mustard and red/orange. She's exquisite!

 

Anonymous Sophie, the Barton Girl said ... (3:05 PM) : 

Oh my, she's gorgeous!
And her outfit could almost win me over to the all-vintage look. I know that's a weird thing for a vintage dealer to say, but I'm more of a mixer (as in vintage/contemporary mix).
Thanks for sharing, as usual!

Anonymous Seditionaire said ... (6:18 PM) : 

BEAUTIFUL!! This might sound completely redundant to New Yorkers...but WHAT IS THIS EVENT on Governor's Island w/ the swing band and period costumes?!
I know you've posted pics from it before, so I'm guessing it's a yearly affair? Would love to know some more about it, as the way your portray it, Sart, it looks like my idea of heaven!

All the best from Montreal!

How do you get such beautiful colours...do you shoot in the afternoon sun...doesn`t look like fill flash?

Feel its the wrong yellow for her, but the style is beautiful on her body and the accessories and pose are spot on.

 

Anonymous Bombshell Kitten said ... (11:38 PM) : 

J'adore! The dress is simply fabulous, and the red lip really sets if off. How clean and elegant!

 

Blogger Kalli said ... (11:41 PM) : 

Gorgeous - love the red smile and gloves.


I have this paper parasol in cobalt blue - she probably got it as I did in Chinatown, at Pearl River on Broadway:

Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (6:18 AM) : 

This beautiful girl is a perfect example of how so many of the 'real' people you shoot are so much more interesting and inspiring to look at than bland shapeless models in many fashion magazines. Editor's take note. Fashion NEEDS you and the stylish people you document , Sart!

Parasols are everywhere in Shanghai when it gets (too) hot and (too) sunny. I guess that it's the same in many Asian places, where a white, flawless skin is a must.

There are a handful of vintage events like this around town...another Governor's Island gig in September...and Wit's End is a fantastic 20s/30s evening on the Bowery ( http://www.clubwitsend.com )...the next one is June 27th! Dances of Vice is another fantastic vintage event- 18th century through Jazz Age fun! ( http://www.dancesofvice.com )

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:54 PM) : 

I owned this same parasol and bought in Chinatown NYC ten years ago. It finally ripped so badly I couldn't use it anymore. I now live in San Francisco so don't get to use my parasols very much. They are the best for sunshade.
