When we first met.... Lucy

Above is Lucy, I took this picture when I first met her at a cafe in Melbourne. I thought she looked so cool sitting there during her coffee break - so French somehow. I knew the picture wasn't right for the blog, but when the Saba job came up she was one of the first people I suggested we shoot.

I'm really proud that with each of the people we shot we were able to maintain the true nature of the subject.

She looks like a young Cindy Crawford!


Blogger Sonja Blackham said ... (10:11 AM) : 

This photo embodies what style means to me... color, texture, beauty, and freedom.


Anonymous Avah said ... (10:11 AM) : 

Wow-- so effortlessly striking!



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

To look "French" she needs a cigarette in that top photo! Beautiful young lady . . .


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:18 AM) : 

I LOVE the shot on the bike: so much energy and the lighting is beautiful. She's gorgeous!


Blogger Oh Dear Charlotte said ... (10:23 AM) : 

i think she has the laid back aussie look :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:25 AM) : 

Nice shots. Nice lighting. Nice clothes.

Lucy is also breaking the law by not wearing a helmet. Oh well, how else could she keep hair like that?


Blogger SAM. said ... (10:29 AM) : 

her jawline is perfect!


Blogger Rosie Unknown said ... (10:33 AM) : 

I love both pictures!


Blogger Jamie Jonathan Ball said ... (10:39 AM) : 

incredible, extremely natural..beautiful.

I love both of these photos, but especially the bottom one! The outfit and bike are incredily cute!


Anonymous cwon said ... (10:44 AM) : 

her face is so symetrical... wow


Blogger Serg Riva said ... (10:47 AM) : 

Her eyebrows are like a butterfly about to take flight from a flower.

BTW. I think I've been to the beach in the wall paper.


Blogger stacy said ... (10:58 AM) : 

both shots are stunning - the bicycle shot though... perfection.

Nice photos. Beautiful girl.


Blogger diane said ... (11:48 AM) : 

I agree with Style Scanner, she looks a lot like CC.
@Serg Riva: "Her eyebrows are like a butterfly about to take flight from a flower", I want some of whatever it is that you're taking.


Blogger Patrick Mercier said ... (11:49 AM) : 

The second picture is very sexy. The tight jeans, the scarves and the depth of field renders a great photo!


Blogger Jem said ... (11:50 AM) : 

i love both photos but i really am crazy about the bike one! it looks like shes a model streight from the pages of vogue!


Blogger Magdalena Charytończyk said ... (11:50 AM) : 

Pure beauty. Thank you, Sart.

ha ha, perhaps it's a small world.

i was so disappointed when you posted barely any photos from melbourne, and then you went and posted someone i've met.



Blogger kahartland said ... (12:00 PM) : 

she is very pretty, though she has a sort of masculine face shape


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:03 PM) : 

She serves me my coffee and breakfast on the weekends. Tusk, on Chapel Street in Windsor. She is beautiful.


Blogger Madeleine said ... (12:05 PM) : 

She's so beautiful. Her hair is what I'm drawn too. I have really kinky hair and no time to blow dry it. So i appreciate shiny, flowing, straight hair. =) Great photos.


Blogger Hello Katey said ... (12:07 PM) : 

god I wish i looked that good on a bicycle.

love, katey


Blogger Tereneh Idia said ... (12:36 PM) : 

She is fantastic, I love the way you capture people as you find them but also with some like the lovely Lucy you can picture her in another mode, she looks wonderful.



Anonymous Kate G. said ... (1:01 PM) : 

I could easily mistake this for a movie still. Who is our beautiful, but anxious heroine off to rescue? Well done, Mr. S. I've missed this side of your work.

Sart I love you and your photos but i wish you would stop cutting off feet! I was so sad a few posts below when i couldn't see Anna Piaggi's shoes! And in the bike photo its not a big deal but i think seeing them would really add to the motion of the shot.

the bicycle photo is just so fierce. love it

oh amazing,
Garance said she didn't had the chance to take a picture of the cool sunset in that café.

it is awesome.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:29 PM) : 

@Anonymous 3:29, You are right, her style is pretty much like that of every college student in California. But wow, she is a stunner.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:58 PM) : 

Can't wait to see the SABA campaign! These look gorgeous already :)


Anonymous Moran said ... (6:15 PM) : 

That's a really beautiful picture. She have a powerful strong face and it gives the right energy for pictures like that.


Anonymous MIA said ... (6:22 PM) : 

In the first picture her french style isn't present at all. but when I saw the second one, wow, she's pretty cool and she has a amazing natural beauty.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:39 PM) : 

Such an awesome photo.


Anonymous the colour commission said ... (7:09 PM) : 

I love your initial shot of her in the cafe, simply striking. Her hands are a real focal point. Wonderful colours in the cheesy sunset in the background.

I love the bicycle photo! So cinematic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:55 PM) : 

this must be posed because it's illegal to ride a bike in melbourne without a helmet. she could get fined for this if a copper spotted her.


Blogger Lauren said ... (11:13 PM) : 

She has AMAZING bone structure!

Too bad the blog is only for two weeks!


Blogger Rute said ... (6:10 AM) : 

Sorry, but I don't like the first photo, don't think she's in a great position, even if she is realy relaxed.
But the second one is great!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 AM) : 

The lady does inspire me with an affection not altogether fraternal.



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

She is sooo pretty! And the backround on the 2nd picture is perfect.

The photo of her on the bicycle is stunning!!!!


Anonymous Annabelle said ... (10:43 AM) : 

Please, please tell me the name of the cafe you shot that - I need to find out where I can get this georgous, kitschy and wonderful wallpaper.


Anonymous Roth and Ko. said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Now this is what I love about your site. Gorgeous photo (on the bottom.) Love the woman's determined face and athletic stance on the bike (like she's actually got somewhere to be, unlike all those twee shots of models on prim cruisers.) Plus the atmospherics are gorgeous -- I have got to learn how to take a photo!


Blogger junglesiren said ... (1:42 PM) : 

So much more enjoyable and interesting than what droops off the pages of Vogue.

Gorgeous girl. Gorgeous shots.

And I agree with Kate G--I think both of these shots look like stills from a movie! I read the comments on this post, and not many people liked the first shot... But I disagree! I think it exudes an effortless coolness... Probably because she's "doing her own thing" and wearing hoops and a white tee rather than trying to look chic. I don't know why I like her look so much, considering how much I love fashion and "looking chic". But, looking like Cindy Crawford probably doesn't hurt either.

Wow the bottom photo of her on that delightful bike is one of my favourite shots you have taken!


Anonymous donna said ... (9:06 AM) : 

your australia photos have never excited me...sorry.

i love the paris and italy ones. They either look plain or too staged, like the subjects knew you were coming and decided to dress up for the occassion.


Anonymous Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands said ... (11:39 AM) : 

There´s someting about her that reminds me a bit of Isabeli Fontana...Maybe its the jaw + eyebrows + hair.


Blogger Annabel said ... (4:00 PM) : 

for a long time now ive had such a hard time getting that instant 'i get it!' from your photos, just because im a 19 year old hippie and thats not really your aesthetic, which is fine. This picture LEAPED off the page. Thank you.

Spectacular! Who did the hair?

I love her look. When you were in Australia, there was a picture of you directing lucy in the magazine Grazia, and i thought to myself how perfect is that bike and her beautiful hair.

You captured her spirit: wild and carefree



Blogger Marcus said ... (9:18 PM) : 

What a natural, energetic beauty she has.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:11 AM) : 

Love the juxtaposition of the scarf - the design itself seems a bit more formal, but the pairing and the way it's tied loosely around the neck just works for me.


Blogger Jasmine Kerdsomepong said ... (1:04 PM) : 

Love your blog.


Anonymous Stephi said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Oh how I miss coffee from Tusk on Chapel St! She is gorgeous too...


Blogger Nuria said ... (12:31 PM) : 

The outfit is perfect. It is simple match; she looks casual. It seems that she didn't pay so much attention in what she is wearing. What makes the outfit excellent is the skarf. It brings a femenin, glamorous style.

I have seen this kind of style in Charlotte Casiraghi. She is very glamorous, trendy and elegant in all what she wears. She has her own style.
