On the Street.... Headbands, West Village

Headbands...what a tough accessory.
When they are right, they are really right and when they are wrong you're Loverboy.

To me, the headband makes this whole look, makes it more slinky.

I dont have a comment on the outfit, but what a great location! Jorge from West Palm Beach


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (9:29 AM) : 

she's so hot!

I love everything she's wearing and especially that expression. she's too cool.

i'm in love...but that's impossible!!!...because i play for the other team ; )


Blogger warrior of tenderness said ... (9:32 AM) : 

Loving it... what a natural pose striker~!

As an aside, how quickly the species became camera conscious! And in what, a span of _maybe_ 180 years?!

With Neptune currently transiting humane Aquarius, expect the many as opposed to the few seeking and bringing to bear a very cinematic sense of self, destiny, and style.... expect lots of trends harkening back to that queen of the self-reflexive, the stock Hollywood image. And from all periods. Bottom line? Glamour, glamour, glamour! Illusion, delusion, confusion!

The herd animal that be we is ready for its closeup....


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:36 AM) : 

With that face, I think this woman could pull off any look! She's fabulous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:38 AM) : 

she's strikingly beautiful. i wonder how old she is, she looks very young, maybe 18, 19, but still has a fierce attitude. She's just plain gorgeous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

Again, I love the dress and the beat up Converse... Awesome!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 AM) : 

This girl rules.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:48 AM) : 

Stunner. Who cares about the outfit? (though I do think it's very cool). She's got to be a model... and if she's not, she should be. Way more interesting than so many of the other boring girls you see on the runways and in magazines.


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (9:49 AM) : 

downright cool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:52 AM) : 

Hey that's Bertine a model from Selct Models in London!!!! Used to work with her years ago on a campaign shoot!!



Blogger aviewaskew said ... (10:08 AM) : 

reminds me of lisa bonet...i'm such a sucker for all stars...


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

I love her whole look - the mix of textures and proportions. The headband serves to highlight her beautiful face. And Hey! - she's not carrying a bag the size of Brazil... Great photo!


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

Scott Schuman takes beautiful photos.

But does beautiful person make beautiful photo or beautiful photo makes beautiful person?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:33 AM) : 

I agree. The headband really does make the look.

Love that expression too. Wow. :)


Blogger said ... (10:37 AM) : 

I love this cute, confortable, easygoing look, but precisely not sure about the headband here, it looks kind of strange...

She has style!


Blogger Tracy Tan said ... (11:04 AM) : 

i love your photos! and your eye for fashion.

what lens do you use?


Blogger Jingoist said ... (11:06 AM) : 

You absolutely, positively must love the Chuck Taylors. To me, the Chucks take this whole ensemble to another level as much as the headband does.


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

"...and when they are wrong you're Loverboy."

that's possibly the funniest thing i've read on here yet scott. and, of course, spot on.


Blogger jennifer said ... (11:33 AM) : 

She pulls off the look so well. Gorgeous face, too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 AM) : 

Love the girl.
Love the shot.
But writing in because I love the word SLINKY!



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

Dang! This youngster knows what she's doing. Ultra cool and cozy in her clothes. Love the Converse sneakers, and you're right--the headband does the trick.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:48 AM) : 

While she's definitely beautiful - no denying that...the outfit is common-there isn't anything special about the shoes, purse, sweater or shoes.

I can appreciate the whole urban look of the shot though...

Background is marvelous!


Blogger MI said ... (11:50 AM) : 

just great.

when the headband comes with the beautiful head, it should be awesome.

also i love the patterns on the dress and the texture of the knit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:00 PM) : 

She's FAB, and so is Scott Schuman for recognizing true FAB.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 PM) : 

She should date me. She's really, really pretty.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:26 PM) : 

I wonder what are the streets in NY Scott considers to be the most stylish?


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

I see her alot in central london...


yes she's a model from select


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Lovely, symmetrical face. Is that a lace shawl draped scarfwise? The dark clothing and accessories frame and spotlight that beautiful, intelligent face. Yes, no enormous bag to distract from or hide this dignified woman.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:37 PM) : 

She's one long anonymous popsicle until you get to the face. Band, brows and mouth make for a very happy surprise. Glad you caught the shot. It made my morning.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:45 PM) : 

The background brought out the whole attitude from her look. /when i first look at this shot, i just love it. but, then when i did zoom in, i thought she looks sleepy and the headband just don't fit in.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:50 PM) : 

she's such a badass!!!


Blogger Neil MacLean said ... (1:07 PM) : 

her face doesn't hurt things.


Blogger Candace said ... (1:29 PM) : 

Oh man, headbands are my thing so I'm glad this photo showcases one! I also love her super relaxed pose and the city buildings in the almost looks like the street is deserted, which really adds to the moment that was captured.


Blogger Jamie Welsh Watson said ... (1:36 PM) : 

Her expression is awesome. I love everything about the shot. But her expression inspired confidence in me today. Thanks.


Blogger What we four say said ... (1:43 PM) : 

She is gorgeous I think she could wear a burlap sack and still look stunning.


Blogger J. Pafoofnic said ... (1:55 PM) : 

She reminds me of Mimi's character from Rent; rebellious, rugged, yet girlishly vulnerable in a way that makes her quite stylish. :)

I like it very much. I've been donning various headbands in odd ways since last year and everyone in my suburbian surroundings seems to look at me strangely, until one day a lovely Brazilian woman said to me, "The way you wear your headbands are very en vogue." That meant a lot.

If you ever want to check out my fashion blog, that'd be wonderful.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:00 PM) : 

Like the background of this shot.Does she think she's posing for vogue?. She's wearing too much makeup and looks so unnatural.


Blogger amychristina said ... (2:01 PM) : 

love the attitude in the photo, and she definitely rocks the headband...beautiful!


Blogger mette said ... (3:23 PM) : 

Black on black. It works,but I don´t like the impression on her face. Not friendly at all.


Blogger ebeenso said ... (3:41 PM) : 

She looks great. I love the look. It makes me think again about stuffing my headband in the closet and forgetting about it ;)


Blogger momo said ... (3:48 PM) : 

She looks like one of the kids my daughter goes to school with: comfortable AND stylish!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:54 PM) : 

Love her. From her headband to her Chucks.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

That's Bettine! She's at Muse Models. Homegirl is flyyyy.


Blogger Francis said ... (4:40 PM) : 

Great as always!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:18 PM) : 

Completely in agreement with Jorge, the first poster: that background is surreal-- the composition of the three buildings look like a montage from a painting. Love your eye sir!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 PM) : 

Beautiful girl - and I love the style too. Beautiful image overall Scott.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:19 PM) : 

I love this picture, but I still think this outfit would be better without the chucks. They're so done. Everyone needs to put them in the closet for a few years and wear them when they're fresh looking again.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:46 PM) : 

she is gorgeous.


Blogger Kara said ... (8:56 PM) : 

I'm glad someone else thought she looks like Lisa Bonet. (Of course, I was going to say "Denise from 'The Cosby Show'!")

I love her headband. Inspiring.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:38 PM) : 

Am I the only one who didn't get it? I think the headband makes her forehead look a bit wide and short and creates a strange first impression. The rest is fine.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:39 PM) : 

her facial expression steals the show.
i want to be her best friend!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 PM) : 

glorious face! Bettine - Muse NYC girl


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:10 AM) : 

she's a tim burton character come to life!


Blogger Wambui M. said ... (1:44 AM) : 




Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:14 AM) : 

And she's rocking that look because of her tough attitude. Look at that expression!

This picture is sublime. I mean that.


Blogger benson said ... (9:45 AM) : 

It's almost like a movie set...where are the hustling and bustling people?! She's fabulous--the power of youth, baby(it's hard to pull off the tights and tennis shoes when you're out of your 20s)
You go, girl.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:05 AM) : 

this girl looks like a gazelle


i like the fact that it looks like she didn't put too much effort into her outfit- a kind of a 'damn, i slept in late and now i missed my morning lecture' look


Blogger Melissa said ... (12:50 PM) : 

This photo looks like it was taken from a page of Sassy magazine back in the day. Love it.


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

I like her look a lot- she looks pulled together but comfortable and relaxed. And she's got a STANCE!


Blogger trulymadlydeeply said ... (4:25 PM) : 

love her 'tude


Blogger carlos santiago said ... (6:52 AM) : 

hey, this is on gay street!! the best street in nyc!


Blogger MARA said ... (7:35 AM) : 

Beautiful picture. Bring it on!


Blogger Eryl Shields said ... (8:25 AM) : 

This makes me wish I'd had a daughter (as well as my marvellous, gorgeous son).


Blogger bomb.ass.ting said ... (10:40 AM) : 

She's a little intimidating in the face, but chuck taylors can make anyone whimsical. If she chose some sort of lace up patent booties instead of converse, she'd be completely unapproachable. Pretty.


Blogger LittleMexicanGirl said ... (5:29 PM) : 

I love her expression!!! She exudes confidence...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:20 AM) : 

This is one of my favorites. A nod to 90's coffee shop chic with the attitude of Keyshia Cole. WTF?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:42 PM) : 

Not much to say about the outfit...she makes it look good with that expression on her face.
And amazing background shot.


Blogger quan said ... (7:15 PM) : 

love her effortlessly cool look and expression!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:14 AM) : 

Honestly, is she a model for whom you hired a stylist or someone you ran into on the street? NYC has a lot of gorgeous women with amazing individual style but this woman is STYLE from her head wrap to her Chucks.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:18 PM) : 

Urban youth again?
She is gorgeous but looks like she can't really afford good shoes.
I love your website because you usually photograph really well dressed people so I can get good ideas on how to be better dressed.
This doesn't help.


Blogger amyw said ... (8:00 PM) : 

Love the outfit. Love the Chucks! Chucks always make the outfit---so hip and cool, just like she is!


Blogger fashionfatwa said ... (2:51 PM) : 

Oh my, this is so, so halal. She looks fantastic - I am now convinced that sheer tights are the secret to looking great in everything.


Blogger amy said ... (10:16 AM) : 

great pic, great look. long live chucks w/ all types of clothing. i'm with ya on the headband comments. it makes this one. loverboy, ha! get lucky!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:42 PM) : 

Jourdan Dunn?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:33 AM) : 

the main thing for me is not "what" she is wearing, but "as" she is wearing!

she is beautiful, very celestial and otherworldly...
