On the Street....At VPL, NYC

This is about style that really frames the face. It draws the viewer in and makes you recognize the person. This is not for the faint of heart.

gorgeous. sometimes it's healthy to see the people and not the clothes. beautiful portraits.


Blogger Elle said ... (8:55 AM) : 

I adore these photos, especially the first one - there is something so fresh about them. They've made me realise that the face says so much more than clothes.

That lip color looks good on her.

Wow, this shows how a smile can be the most stylish thing you can wear

For the first time, while I love the photos. I don't like the post. It has an air of something that doesn't jive.


Blogger Jamie Jonathan Ball said ... (9:05 AM) : 

beautiful one and both, love Waris Ahluwalia, a true gent.

STUNNING! I think one of your best photographs. Really something to hang on your wall!

these pictures are amazing! i don't know what it is that makes them so beautiful, maybe the colors, but i loved them from the start!

the man is an actor, I think you can see him on The Darjeeling Limited...

Who is she? Why isn't she in the movies????


Anonymous Cvalda said ... (9:29 AM) : 

I love the soft expression of secrets in their eyes. No one can know what theyre thinking about and damn these lovely portraits makes me wanna know!! The fact that our thoughts are ours and no one can ever know them unless we express them is really lovely and scary!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:32 AM) : 

For Anon 9:04
How so?


Anonymous Nancy said ... (9:38 AM) : 

Beautiful shots. Love the way the sky softly frames the faces and the city is recognizable in the background. An original take on "street" fashion photography. Soulful portraits too.


Blogger Pearl Westwood said ... (9:41 AM) : 

Sometimes clothes can distract from the persons face,sometimes as you say they can frame it. Great to see a differnt angle on things!


Blogger Lou said ... (9:53 AM) : 

She looks the spitting image of a young emanuelle beart...Brilliant portraits, with that stark celestial blue as background.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:53 AM) : 

Two perfect photographs Scott, thank you. These two are really putting themselves "out there" which I love. Once again, you have renewed my faith that we too can put out the fashion goods. Happy Monday to everyone!


Blogger Dorothy said ... (9:56 AM) : 

Lovely faces, lovely eyes, lovely sky...

Beautiful portraits both!

How so?

Maybe it's the lighting. You've always used natural lighting. Here it looks as if you've had some help, although I have no way of knowing for sure. It starts to be more about the photography than the subject maybe? And there are more than enough photography blogs. That said, I really like these portraits. They're terrific. You're excused for having a little fun, in my humble opinion. I don't see it as a loss of focus necessarily.

Is that Hannah Davis?

Bravo ! I love those portraits. They are so different and yet something in the way you present them makes the link. Fantastic colours and light.


Blogger ashley said ... (10:30 AM) : 

uhhhhh i am OBSESSED with orange lips right now.


Blogger what! said ... (10:32 AM) : 

So mad happy that you put up a picture of Waris. More sikh men who aren't afraid to follow the faith need to be recognised. It does not hurt that he is amazingly good looking as well ;)



Blogger dos said ... (10:35 AM) : 

wow, that girl is so beautiful!


Anonymous Clue♠ said ... (10:37 AM) : 

I love how you captured the depht of their feelings in their eyes. Marvellous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:38 AM) : 

Who is the woman? She was on Garance's blog and Hanelli's blog a couple of days ago, so she must be in the industry somehow. She is very pretty. Her face deserves to be framed.


Anonymous Mette said ... (10:39 AM) : 

I already see this in an art gallery :).

i swear, red lips are the perfect quintessential accessory, every time.

What is so precious is that this bright and reflecting the sun effect is not due to some...photoshop miracle! Good photographer, good models!


Blogger the Citizen Rosebud said ... (11:42 AM) : 

Amazing, amazing. The top picture is stunning at first peep. But the second warms up to you, sneaks in and snaps the heartstrings. A sensitive portrait. There you have it.


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (11:45 AM) : 

I love her red lips and the scarf perfectly frames her face. xo


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (11:59 AM) : 

LOVE the bright lipstick & naked eyes...very refreshing.

Grey again...I'm telling ya, looks good on everyone!

Scott, if you're at the Thom Browne show...look for my son, Jullien Herrera (he's in it).

Proud Mama!LOL!

Wow! These photos really get you to have a little look inside their souls.

I love her lipstick!

Is that the actor from the Darjeeling Limited? The guy who also played the camera-man in the Life Aquatic?

Regardless, he (and she) look(s) awesome.

Stunning, stutting photos. You are really drawn into their personality! The woman's playful hair flipping about in the breeze, and the triangle created by the man's turban draw us in.

also i am so jealous of her hair.

He is absolutely from Darjeeling and Life Aquatic. He is such an amazing character. She's beautiful too. Both have great style.

The gal is at the peak of her young beauty. The guy - he looks wonderfully mysterious and handsome.

I like that you've been featuring more portraits lately.

Laurel Pantin is pretty but in this portrait she is stunning.

I like the clean lines and the glow of both pictures... It makes it feel like spring is coming.

Both of them look classy, sophisticated and ready to *do* something. It captures what I am aiming for at this time of year.


Anonymous 2prettykitties said ... (6:51 PM) : 

we just have to say from brooklyn to anonymous, no girl has only one peak of beauty, there are many over a lifetime.


Blogger julie opotiki new zealand said ... (10:53 PM) : 

I'm loving the lipstick!!! yay for her


Blogger mette said ... (11:07 PM) : 

Seeing the girl, makes me wish I could turn her age again. Today, everything seems to be ok, when I was her age, the possibilities were scarce. But I have my experiences, something she lacks.


Blogger Norma said ... (11:48 PM) : 

Love them. I have to say, the new red-orange lips that are showing up everywhere rock my world. I never thought I'd be an "orange lipstick" kind of woman but that teaches me never say never! It's a great trend esp on the heels of so much dark fatale red.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:50 PM) : 

That's the train conductor from Darjeeling Limited, yes? 


Blogger cloudo3 said ... (12:21 AM) : 

so so beautiful


Blogger Brocade Blue said ... (12:38 AM) : 

what did you meant by faint heart? He is not even a muslim. He is a Punjabi...religion derived from Hindu. Men are encouraged to keep their hair long n tie then up in a bundle (turban) If you noticed, he'd probably also have a tiny bulge in the turban-where he stores his tiny comb.


Blogger Valéry Lorenzo said ... (1:01 AM) : 

I met this man on a train in India.

she looks amazing!! reminds me of marilyn monroe.


Blogger Sancho Penser said ... (8:09 AM) : 

Oh dearest Sart,
those are the best pictures EVER! So wonderful. A reminder why it is nice to be human, to live on this earth, to breath, to think.
At least for today they stop me from just taking the leap of faith out of the window.
Thank you.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:43 AM) : 

No Way!! I just saw Darjeeling Limited two days ago! Wes Anderson is a genius for using this guy. He is the ultimate straight man that is humuorous to boot because of his timing. Love these shots, Sart--they have a hopeful/other worldly quality about them. W.A.'s beard jumps off the photo (almost).


Anonymous Alison said ... (10:05 AM) : 

I'm a scarf wearer, and I love how different these scarves are: the first, the most basic and simple knit, and the second, a more complex textured silk with different coloured threads. Both suit their wearers and draw out their characters. While she could probably wear his scarf, it wouldn't do as much for her as the one she's wearing - and it certainly wouldn't give the same beautiful, insouciant vibe. And I can't imagine him wearing her scarf, period. These photos show how how much is conveyed by what is basically a length of cloth.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:24 AM) : 

very inspirated portrait of the girl


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

Laurel looking gorgeous as ever! The lip shade is Mandarina from Milani Cosmetics.

Back at you Brooklyn:

I said "peak of her YOUNG beauty"

I agree, girls & women have many peaks (and sometimes valleys) in their beauty during a life time.


Blogger Amber said ... (2:30 PM) : 


And I quite like how chatty you've been on your blog lately. It's a nice departure from just outfit posts.


Anonymous Connie said ... (7:57 PM) : 

When I saw the picture on the top, I didn't really think much of it. Pretty girl, ordinary outfit, from what I could see of it. And then I saw the second photo.

These two pictures work together beautifully as a diptych, and they really should never be presented in any other way. The similar backgrounds, postures, and lighting tie them together and yet the contrast is striking and unforgettable: the plumpness of her face and the line of his cheekbones, the lightness of her hair and the curl of his beard, her flashy red lips and his conservative turban. Even the directions that they are looking compliment each other.

I don't know if you meant to arrange them this way on purpose, but really, these two photos, as a diptych, not side to side or switched, but just the girl above the man is such a perfect arrangement and was meant to be just so.

He is in the movie the Darjeeling limited, i recognized it at once! hah, looks great!

AH! the guy has totally been in more than one wes anderson film. i have always adored his look. the two photos look wonderful together!
