Absolutely stunning & striking! Love the masculine watch and paired down outfit with the very feminine hoop earrings...

Now those are some yoga arms! Love how simple her style is.

Great pic. Love your lighting. One could paint her with a circle, triangle and two cris-cross strokes of the arms. Very fluid. Thanks!

Stunning woman!.... How can you post a picture like this and you don't tell who she is.. lol ;)



Blogger Dana said ... (5:44 PM) : 

Beauty in its pure form.
A little arrogant look but I guess it should be that way.
And I love the shadow play.

look at those interesting shadows layered on her chest. they're like a necklace.

I love the simple wedding ring & the large, men's watch. I love women in men's watches.

Her skin tone and bone structure are amazing! I love how she is dressed so simply too, really shows off her beauty and doesn't take attention away from her face!


Blogger Bookworm said ... (7:10 PM) : 

Beautiful picture. I love how the woman just pops against the black background.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:15 PM) : 

This photograph screams money and elegance to me (not that the two things go always well together). I remember a jeweller in Milan a few years ago complaining about this trend of women wearing big sport watches. "A woman's wrist is too small for the typical men's diving watch" he said. I like it on this lady tough.


Blogger robert said ... (7:23 PM) : 

beautiful. what i register here is the way the watch accentuates her amazing arms. anyone know what make it is?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:24 PM) : 

Not a fashion home run just a beautiful girl born on third base.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:38 PM) : 

To the person who accused this lady here of not having beautiful style. I wonder where you get your definition of style?

Personally, over the top Balenciaga shoes and bags, poofy skirts and shoulder pads are as obscene as powdered wigs and crinoline skirts.

If you agree that fashion is art, this photo is definitely art, and by implication- very fashionable.


Blogger Amy said ... (7:38 PM) : 

Gorgeous portrait! Well done


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:55 PM) : 

It's a beautiful photo, beautiful subject. If only she weren't wearing that clunky man-style watch. When did women stop wearing those little dainty watches?

I think this is your homage to Irving Penn.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:51 PM) : 

Fashion industry, the trend set and the people in it seem very fine, but Scott, the reason I started to follow your blog was that you posted shots of personal styles of commoners as well. The blog feels like any fashion magazine nowadays, especially during the fashion months. Saying things like this have gotten me
in trouble in other blogs, but I hope you don't forget what made your blog unique.


Blogger Dani Paiva said ... (9:03 PM) : 

this picture is beautiful!


Blogger Rachel said ... (9:05 PM) : 

This is the kind of shot that is so striking that I try not to look too long, because I actually won't want to stop.

It's the kind of portrait that makes you understand why figure and portraiture will never get old.

It's the kind of image that goes beyond the clothing, and cuts straight to the woman.

She has the most beautiful arms I've ever seen.


Blogger materfamilias said ... (10:50 PM) : 

Marvellous photo! And the subject herself is so simply elegant -- I love the subtle play of the deep blue against the black and the understated strength of the jewelry.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:04 AM) : 

The most gorgeous photograph of the most beautiful woman in the world. This is iconic.


Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (2:30 AM) : 

A star is born.

I recommend that you photograph this extraordinary woman more often; or at the very least allow her to share with us her style tips.

She has an innate sense of minimalism and breathtaking beauty.


Blogger Couture said ... (3:02 AM) : 

SUBLIME! Timeless yet of the moment. Congrats on a genious portrait.

So beautiful - with a face like that, I almost don't care about the clothes - that said, she is dressed very elegantly. And I love the rich blue of her trousers. Gorgeous woman.

Women with a little men touch always looks good

at first glance I thought it was Joy Bryant or Paula Patton


Anonymous Specialward said ... (11:02 AM) : 

I don't understand why one great picture of a generically great looking woman is posted and people have a fit over it. Yea, her outfit isn't over the top unique or great, but come on, this is an awesome shot of a cool looking gal. I also dig men's sport watches on the right type of girl.

Love every single thing about this. She is just a woman with timeless elegance. I love the look on her face, sensuous. I love her clothing. I love her jewelry, even that big watch on her dainty wrist.

It's all perfect.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:28 PM) : 

This is such a beautiful portrait. Nice job!

Not every photo on a fashion blog has to be of outrageous, unattainable outfits.

As for Specialward's comment...I'd much rather see a beautifully lit portrait of an attractive person than a shot of someone plain dressed like a clown :)

today, after a despicable morning, i wandered into a bookstore/coffee shopi and there next to the new valentino was your collection of art. it was the only copy on the shelf and looked as if it had been admired a few times over. honestly, the sight of your book and its worn binding made me truly smile. i ended up buying that very copy for knowing that very book uplifted others delights me. all inspired, p.

ps this woman reminds me of your cover lady, ms. julie ragolia. :)

It really is amazing how the shadows have created the perfect necklace.
Look at her collarbone, and her broad shoulders, and long arms with elegant hands.
With simple make-up, big hoops and what looks like a ponytail.
A mens Omega watch and nothing else on her wrists.
A wedding band and ring with nothing else on her fingers.
And there in nobody around her, behind her, etc?
At a fashion show?
She's like a dream!

Scott you really nailed this one!

All that femininity is giving me heart palpitations. Even the shadows are paying their respects with a gorgeous triumvirate of moody apparitions caressing her neck.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:42 AM) : 

Omega mid sized mens watch, brilliant!
Something as simple as that, along with a few other clearly made decisions evidenced in this portrait, shows her style is on another level.
To be this beautiful and possess an understated style, that's how it should be done.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:49 AM) : 

I like your title "Second row...".

I take it to mean, see not every beauty uses PR and is dressed by the designer and plopped down in row one.
This is a girl that clearly could have that happen for her and yet she sits in row two looking elegant and timeless.

The look on her face is amazing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:54 AM) : 

I saw her at the show,
the best looking most graceful women in the entire Palais.
Tim Blanks was interviewing her on camera backstage afterwards.

Those slacks were very high waisted with a full leg,
she was a stunner.

who cares about fashion so much when she is hot like this? fashion is but clothes thrown on, a disguise. this woman can throw on a mcdonald's outfit and she would probably shine and people would look at her and say "damn!!!"

Blogger Ivy Tran said ... (1:12 AM) : 

The shot is great!

The dark background brings the focus to the subject with such an impact! Her brown skin looks so luminous and her black hair and black singlet blend into the darkness bringing her forward more. This looks like a high fashion shoot.

Anonymous Marisa said ... (2:49 PM) : 

The cover of Vogue comment is spot-on. I have no idea who this woman is, but the photo of her is more thrilling than 99.99% of what I've seen in fashion magazines this year. The only other photo that's gotten me so strongly was that one of the toned woman in the red American Apparel dress on her phone in front of the taxi cab. Everyone remember that one? Sigh.


Anonymous Stray said ... (1:48 AM) : 

As a designer, this photo has very pleasantly inspired me in terms of just clearing my head, redefining what is true chic and elegance and generally re creating a canvas... ! Fashion is not always about a zillion details but more of a focal point that escalate into beautiful aesthetics. Everything in this photo is a starting point for that perfection. Who is she? : )


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


An American Film & Television actress with a few dozen credits, who also happens to be the daughter of Donna Summer & Bruce Sudano

She was in the cast of Damon Wayons "My Wife & Kids" on ABC for a couple seasons
There was just a pictorial of her in Septembers InStyle magazine

She is special!
